I've been looking at available dogs on our local boxer rescue's website and have seen a few that might be a good fit for our family. After doing the research, I brought it up to DH and at first got a firm 'no way.' I was prepared for that and came up with a bazillion reasons why it was a good idea and he finally came around to my way of thinking. We did this before when Carley was about 1-1/2 with disasterous results. The rescue (3 year old male) was fine but Carley was a wreck. She was definitely meant to be an only child and some friends of ours took the rescue and he's doing great. The experience was very difficult for us though. Carley was a nervous girl and had many 'issues' (sorry, baby, but you know you did.) Our Molley is very different. She's sassy and very confident at the ripe ole age of 5 months! I've always thought that it would be nice to have two, rather than one. I look at the pictures on this website and see so many boxer siblings that look so happy, like they really have a best buddy to play and snuggle with other than their humans. I think how nice that would be, not only for them, but for us too. So, I went online this morning and filled out the adoption form. I'm thinking a boy, maybe 3 or 4 years old, would be right for us. Now I'm nervous. I'm wondering if Molley's too young. I'm wondering how we can get a good feel for the dog's compatability when we go to the rescue. I'm wondering if I should just leave well enough alone stick with what we've got. I'm so confused now but I don't want to talk to DH about it since I had to convince him that this was a good idea. I could sure use some input from those of you who have done this, good or bad. Thank you.
