See why being single has its good points.

Not only do I have to get a husband on board with what dogs I want, I do not have to put up with any breed that I do not want. Of course there is no one to help pay for or care for them.

This is one of the reasons I say if I get married at this stage in the game, he will have to move in down the street somewhere. I need my space.

There's a Saint Bernard drooling on my slippers right now. 'Nuff said... I didn't want another dog period and dh is never home. Case in point, I last saw him Thursday at midnight and he's still an hour away. But now, I do adore Dolly, despite the mountains of hair, the drool, the food - OMG can she eat!
There is no "letting" in our relationship. I do as I wish and he may ask permission to do other things, which I deny, then pretend I came up with the idea on my own as a surprise for him Just kidding, a Saint or Newf has always been his dream dog, he grew up with one, he wanted one and what's another gigantic mouth to feed. Our goals and dreams may not always be exactly the same but we support one another and put up with what we have to.

It's like when I told him if I die, I want him to remarry, she can have anything of mine, except my golf clubs - he said, don't worry baby, she's left handed. Problem solved!

And there is your groan for the night.

Honestly... it depends on the breed. And the guy.

Right now, I would say no to an akita, husky, chow chow, basenji, shiba inu, and a whole horde of other breeds, simply because knowing my past bfs, I would be the one doing all the work. I don't like stubborn breeds.
Now, if the guy I was with showed that he has dedication and I had NO doubts that he'd take care of his dog, then he could have whatever he wanted.

Now y'all just gotta find me a guy I won't doubt will be dedicated to his pet! LOL

Any dog that comes into the house would be our dog, not his or hers. If I didn't like a particular breed of dog I don't think he'd buy it, and I wouldn't buy one he didn't like either.

Mine would never get a dog and he is OK with whatever dog I come home with as long as I don't have more than two or three at a time. Makes for a good hubby. So far he has liked them all.

No.

:P Just kidding! I'd have 100% no issue with it as long as he's willing to provide 50% of the care. I'm the type of person to where I'll help out and do half of the care even if it isn't mine or partially mine just because I love dogs. As far as expenses, if I'm caring for my dogs on my own salary, he'd have to do the same with his. If he helps me out, I'd match what he helps me with with his dog(s). Luckily, I have a boyfriend who lives at home still and don't have that to worry about at the moment. He likes GSDs, anyways so chances are, it would be another GSD if he got one. He's also more of a cat person, which is okay with me, too because I LOVE and adore cats.

I don't think I will come across this issue any time soon since we do have the rescue dogs. My and I were talking about getting another personal dog,but I don't we will for a while. He's a animal guy anyway,so I guess that makes it easy for me. We always have plenty of variety coming through here and so that seems to take care of any 'desired breeds' for right now.
