Sounds to me like the people want to have their cake and eat it. Screw that, if I adopt a dog I don't expect to share custody.

I've never seen an ad like that, but without a doubt, I wouldn't do it.

I think the not enough time due to baby or baby related excuses can be valid. It can take your body a long time to heal after birth and going jogging with your dog is not always an option. Dad might be working long long hours to support his family and have to come home and help his lady with the cooking, cleaning and rearing of child.

I don't think a lot of people try but unless you've had a baby it's pretty hard to judge. I have a lower needs dog so I made it work but I'm scared for two kids and dog. It's going to take a lot of dedication on my part to live up to everyone's needs.

I don't know. If I could get to know The person I might be ok with it. Sometimes I wish someone would take my dogs for the weekend lol

I don't think it would be awful for the dog. Dogs are clever and would likely get used to te arrangement rather quickly. Dogs adapt. I have a friend who "shares custody" of his dog with his old roommate lol. He takes the dog for a week and then the old room mate gets the dog for a week and so on and so forth and it works out just fine and the dog doesn't struggle at all because of it.

I couldn't do it with a total stranger but I figure if we are sharing a dog then we would probably get familiar with each other
