Have you ever owned more then one dog? The dynamic is very different IMO. I would not do it. Get a solid foundation with your first and maybe get the older one. I wouldn't even think of getting a new puppy until my first was at least 2, let alone add another adult in less then a year on top of that. But that's just me.

I have owned more than one dog... and none of the above was not an option.. I know exactly what I am getting into, my heart is just torn. If we could please get back on topic that would be wonderful.

Also, neither will be coming home until winter (dec-jan)

I don't see how it was off topic. Whether you have had multiple dogs before is an important question, especially since you're considering adding two dogs to your home less then a year apart from each other.

My answer is to only add one more dog for now; there is always a possibility that issues could crop up once mama dog is settled in. I don't see how that would be manageable if you also had a puppy to care for at the same time.

My dog is trained and Highly socialized... and we have a YEAR until either would come home.. only more time to improve.


This is not a spontaneous decision like everyone is making it out to be. I have grown up with dogs my ENTIRE life. At my fathers house before I left for college we had 3. I walked all of them at the same time. No issues. Then king passed on and my dad got blitz. still 3. I know what im getting into please stop downing me. and just say which of the 2 you would choose.

My dog will be right around 2 when the pup or mom would come. I am not getting both, I can't have that because I am living on base with my husband. My heart is just torn with bring Angel to a forever home and spoil her or get a puppy from angel and spoil him. In addition there were 2-3 more families interested in bringing home Angel as well.

I saw a pic of the stud on fb, and wow! I'd like a pup from that breeding. I'd be honored to take mom too. Do what you think is best, I'm sure Melinda trusts you if she's willing to re-home her retired female with you.
It isn't like you are getting a 'deal' due to taking two....Angel should be fine coming to you next year and you'll have the pup on its way w/ a good foundation by then.

If you're only getting one then go with whichever you prefer. Do you want to go through the puppy stage again, or go with an older dog? With a pup you'll have two seniors at relatively the same time, and that can potentially be expensive or heartbreaking. Diamond would have a playmate of similar age compared to mama dog. With an older dog you'd obviously hit the senior stage faster, if that matters to you. There are many things to consider. It's something only you and your hubby can decide.
