Will it be a good fit?
I want to get a dog. Coincidentally, my coworker has a 7 weeks liter white GS pups. I thought I should ask the experts here if it will be a good fit for my lifestyle and family. So I live in a town home with a small deck, about 15x15 approx. I have kids 7 yr old and a 4yr old - I'm a single mom. For a year, my parents will also live with us and my dad is thrilled to have one too. I work Thurs-Sat and some Sun. Thurs will be the hardest day because I will be gone for 16 hours shift work but my parents will be home by 8pm. One of my coworker recommended rover.com for puppy sitting on thursdays and I thought that was necessary.
Will this kind of set up work with me/familly? This pup will have to go with us on a car ride every mon-wed when I drop off my son to school.. about 1 hour drive only. Walking him will not be a problem as I live in a very walkable area, and my property is at the end unit. Walks will be done early in the morning, lunch time and after dinner. Thanks in advance!
