Been considering a family dog for a while. We occasionally look after one for a friend. Me and DH had dogs growing up. I would prefer a rescue, one, because it’s giving a dog a chance but also because I don’t want to deal with a puppy tbh.
We are on the list of some rescue centres but we can’t seem to match. We want a small to medium dog, housetrained hopefully and who is Ok with kids. Ds is 10. I think this may be the problem.
I wonder if we’ll ever find a dog who is deemed suitable for under 12s???
Any advice or experience?
