Planning on getting from a breeder? or would you consider a slightly older dog from a rescue (may be good if you don't have the time to let a new puppy out every 2 - 3 hours).
This will be our first dog together but not a first dog for either of us.
I am working from home for the next few months so I have a lot of time on my hands.
Not planning to buy from a breeder. Both of us feel strongly that there are enough dogs out there that need a "forever" home so we would prefer to get e rescued dog. If that means not a puppy, so be it.
