Do/would you have two dogs?
My fiancť and I are toying with the idea of getting a second puppy. A relative of a coworker is looking to rehome their 5 month old male Chihuahua and we are considering taking him in.
We currently have a 4 year old, female Chihuahua and two adult cats. The current dynamic among them all is wonderful. They all get along and often sleep and play together.
Financially, we are prepared to vet and care for an additional furry creature and I am also prepared for the time/responsibility that goes along with a new puppy (although, our first pup was such a breeze I am trying to prepare myself for the fact that it doesnít always go as smoothly with most puppies).
However, I have some reservations about upsetting the balance in our household. We are blessed with three pretty low maintenance, social, happy and healthy animals and I donít want to jeopardize that. Iím also aware that another dog can add more restrictions in terms of travel and leisure time. We donít travel often but I am just trying to consider as many options/scenarios as possible before we make the final decision.
I suppose my question is: How did you decide to go from one dog to two? How do you feel about the decision now?
