Default Help me decide..

For 5 days now I have been trying to decide if we should take this little puppy or not.

Its a Papillon/Pomeranian puppy. (lets see if you can understand this) My husband works with this girl who's boyfriends boss got this puppy and decided a puppy was to much work so they don't want this puppy anymore!

I really really want another puppy but we already have 3 dogs (Small,Med,and Large..lol) I don't want to take in this puppy and find out we are in over our heads and finding out 4 is just way to many ?? I mean yeah this will be a small puppy but still I find small ones are more work..LOL

We have the time for another puppy, we have the money, I'm just scared that my house will be toooo hectic ??

Its driving me BANANAS!! I don't know what to do..lol HELP ..haha

Anyone else crazy like me and have FOUR dogs ? If so is it crazy ??

Those are high energy little dogs ... don't know how the mix would act. A small active dog with a medium and large active dog will have to be protected because it will incite play with the bigger dogs and they won't know they're being too rough. So hectic, yes, but if you're up for it, it can be done.

Off and on over the years, that was my usual number, so it doesn't seem weird to me. And by Saturday, I will probably be right there with ya' again! :P

well I have three in our household. No four But close enough haha. The way I see it whats one more right? ha ha I think if in your heart you want to adopt this puppy do it! you have the time and rescources I think you could make it work. And you want another dog. Its not like its a jump on the opportunity decision. You have thought about it.

If you think you and your current three can handle one more, then go for it! I personally feel that four is a lot more work than three. When I had four, my house was a lot more hectic, and now that we're down to three again it's much easier to manage. I currently have four due to baby-sitting my Grandma's dog, and it's a little hectic again. Two or three dogs is my personal preference. You wouldn't think that a fourth could change the dynamics that much, but it does. At least, with my dogs (and perhaps breeds) anyway.
