I am so glad to hear. Please tell your partner it takes a strong person to admit to their feelings and make some changes. My ex is also hispanic and in the beginning he also believed dogs should be outside. thats the way his family was with dogs. My dogs have never been outside dogs and never will. thats just my rules. He came to love our dog and saw that inside dogs were much more enjoyable. If I need someone to babysit my 3 dogs, I can leave them with my ex at anytime. He even has a doggie door made just for them.
