From one dog to two dogs, the good, the bad and the ugly? update post 12
Talk to me about going from a one dog household to a two dog household. When Emmett and I lived with my mom in PA she and her partner had two pitbull mixes (wonderful dogs!) and everyone got along great. Then I moved into an apartment and my roommates had a Bassett mix and he and Emmett were BFFs. I loved having one more dog in the house and to me, it feels empty now.
Emmett has lived with me and my BF for about 6 months as an only dog but he wants to play with every dog he meets on his walks. I think to an extent he'd like to have the company of another dog again.
I got Emmett several years ago from Ron and Danny and contacted them again. They have a male terrier mix, almost two years old, perfect size/temperament and cute as a button. He actually looks strikingly similar to Emmett! I'd be shipping him from SC to VA, however if there were any issues with he and Emmett getting along, they'd take the dog back. I'm not making any decisions until after the holidays (mid January) so it gives me time to weigh all the ups and downs and make a solid, educated choice. If the new guy is still available, maybe it's meant to be!;) So let me have it. What should I consider? What could I be overlooking? Pros and cons? Thanks guys!
