I see what you mean, but that would be a last resort. I just checked online and there are a bunch of apartments that accept dogs (they didn't say if there was a weight limit) in the areas I am looking into.
Yup, that was what I was worried about. I will kill myself waiting 5 years to adopt a dog. I think it would love my mom's anyway...there is a lot of land.
That was what I was thinking. My other option was to wait 'til I am settled in. When it comes to a social life...I am homeschooled (more like online schooling actually) and the party life will never be for me. If I did adopt a GSD, my social life would probably consist of trips to the dog park with friends. Monetary needs were my other worry...
Thanks all of you so far. Keep the ideas flowing!
