As long as he understood it was HIS dog, and that it would not be my responsibility to train, vet, etc. it. Don't get me wrong... I would help him with food/vet expenses if he needed or wanted me to just like he helps me. But I won't be responsible for it.
The breed he wants beyond anything is an English bulldog. He's done enough research to know the health issues, expenses, excercise/training needs, etc to own and raise one properly. I personally dislike them. But he used to HATE GSDs, and he gave Koda a shot anyways and now likes them. Sooo it's only fair
