To Add Another Dog To The Mix Or Not??

My daughter is on a I want a puppy kick lately. I must admit she gets it from me I would have houseful of pets if they didn't require so much attention, but they do and they deserve it. On the other hand I would love my Boxer to  have a playmate and from what I read at 2 years old it's a perfect time to introduce a new puppy.
My husband was dead set against it and I can't blame him. We REALLY need to fence the yard in fist. However once his "princess" pouted he caved quickly but told her sure in 3 years lol..She agreed not knowing what exactly he meant ( tricky man)
I'm just torn it's like adding another baby..They are adorable as puppies but they grow up fast and cost a lot as well.
I would love for my boxer Bella to have a playmate I think it would help with her energy level as well as make the kids happy..but I'm just unsure

What about future trips and plans it's hard enough with one dog, what about two! And what if they hate each other. I don't ever want to give up one dog for another I had to make that choice once and it was totally unfair for the "new: dog. Although he did get to go live with mayor of S.Hampton and I am sure has a wonderful life! I know he was getting steak meals for dinner which I couldn't provide for a dog..lol

Do you have pets? How many? Whats your feelings on multiple animals?

My baby Bella

Awwww we are a one boxer household too! Ours is a boy and he just turned 2 on November 18th! We cannot add another since it is in our lease to just have 1 so that makes a hard choice easy for us! I would love to if we had the money for vet bills!!! Our one has cost us enough already!!

As a owner of three dogs, one large Belgium Malinois, one medium sized German Shepard and a minature pinscher, I say a fenced back yard is a must first.
If you do get a new dog make sure to give them about two months to blend together. They have to figure out the pecking order so to speak and that takes awhile.

Our dog is named Belle. I don't know what we would do without her. She takes care of us, and watches over us like an Angel. We love her so much. Belle is 8 years old, and she loves to go for walks. She has plenty of bounce for an 8 year old gal.
