we have 6 in the house right now, and quite honestly after 3, its realy not much more work to add the others lol.
they all go out together on their schedual and everyone gets along so...

my current "want" number is 5 adults..
i want 3 cresties, and 2 larger dogs, likley a mastif type.

i may add to that an addtional 2 once i get my property established and some goats by adding some LGD's to live out with the goats and alpaca but 5 is my "pet" number.
but im weird and like ODD numbers...and ODD dogs :P

We have 6.

I think that you could handle it. Believe it or not, since we're recently down to six, I've been looking at the floor, counting the dogs, and thinking "Now this is a manageable number." My parents think I'm crazy, but it seems it's usually me taking care of the dogs, and I don't find it a problem.

Why don't you take her as a "foster". That way you can have some time to get a feel for a 4 dog dynamic in your bunch, and see if that's something you can handle or not. Or if it's something that your current dogs are okay with. If it doesn't work out she'll at least have some good basics set down and you to help her find the perfect forever home, and if it does work out...there you go!

I think Romy's foster idea is really good.

I have three, and I babysit dogs for family members now and then. Four isn't that unmanageable for me. I plan to foster for a rescue once River is older and more trained, so I'd be at four then.

Good luck, and I hope you get pictures!

This is what I was going to say.

Sounds like a really cute puppy! I can't really talk though because I have 5 of the crazy hyper little buggers at my feet right now....

I've known a couple pap/poms and they were all good little dogs, but yeah they're pretty energetic. Both paps and poms are high energy breeds especially when compared to other toys. Most the pap/poms I've met seem to lean towards the pom side of the family but that could just coincidence. It's a pretty popular cross with the designer market, I'm not sure why because they usually end up looking like pet bred poms or papillons.

There's 5 living with us right now.
The biggest downfall to me is that there is so much poop.
I have to pick it up.

I have 5 right now, too 2 are (I guess you could say) temporary / fosters.
My only real complaint... the poop

If you can afford the food, vet bills, have the time, etc I say the more the merrier! we are no help
