garyb, I think you and your wife could find a wonderful one to two year old dog through a rescue group with no problem. That way the dog is already socialized and trained and more ready to settle into your quiet lifestyle. I agree with BM that while puppies are wonderful, they do require a lot more socializing and stimulation that comes from being out and about. Check out the petfinder site in your area and see what type of dogs are available. A crossbreed is always just as wonderful as a purebred. Please be very careful of backyard breeders and don't buy a puppy at a pet store whatever you do. BenMax can probably help you source a rescue, she has a world of knowledge in that area.
