Default help, how to talk a woman into something?

so a young lady in my unit is rehoming a 1 YO dogo that was given to her by her mother's boyfriend (a breeder in miami). don't know much about the lines yet. hopefully will be talking to the breeder tomorrow.
anyway, IF i decide i'd like to have the dog, how do i talk my DW into it as she will be adamantly opposed?
i have zero expectation of success (be easier to talk her into nookie at the intersection of state & main during rush hour), but all help will be appreciated.

I've always lived by the rule, "It's easier to ask for forgiveness, than permission."

Offer to just foster it since it's in need of a home and "you know how hard dogos can be to place in the right home. I would hate to see this one end up in the wrong hands."

Maybe roll the dog in mud and say it followed you home?!

yeah, well i don't want her to stab me on purpose this time. it was bad enough when it was an accident (at least that's her story & it might have actually been an accident).

Wish I could help you there Pops. I'm in a similar boat with my husband. He says No more dogs, and I want one. I'm about to implement Stardogs idea.

yeah thinking of taking the dogs out and bringing him home as a wandering dog on BLM land. still don't think she'll buy it as she knows what a dogo is and that would be TOOO much coincidence.

Tie something with a diamond in it on the collar? Or whatever your wife really, really covets?

I'm not much help, lol. I'd chuck the jewelry and take the dog away from you

crap! i'd need about 1/2 dozen $1000 gift cards to decorating stores like Tai Pan Trading AND a few thousand dollars worth of photography accessories.
come on people get creative here. i know there are some intelligent & devious individuals on this board. break that gift out for a good cause.

Have the dog somehow save your life/her life/someone's life and then teach him to whine on command when she says "No, we're not keeping him." Heartbreaker!

Ask her right at a critical moment of passion and when you hear "YES, YES!" there's your answer
