I'm getting a dog soon. I want to know if it would be a good or bad
idea to go ahead and buy 2 instead of one.
Since my Alaskan Malamute/mix companion dog of 11 years died in 1999,
I have been wanting to get another dog.. I've been considering a
Malamute for the longest time, but a friend of mine who has a Sharpae
(sp?), recently got a second one and it seems to be working out very
much on the positive side for her.
The last year I have been preparing this place to be a proper home for
a dog... cleared the yard of toxic plants, got a nice 6' chain-link
fence all the way around the property (not a huge lot, but 7,000
square feet anyway) built a 12'x8' pin in the shady corner of the
property.. and a few smaller things...
I really have my mind set on a female/s... I don't intend to breed
her/them.. so they will be spade when the proper age... What is the
proper age?.. maybe you can answer that for me as well.
When I adopt, the dog/s will be spending some time inside, and some
time outside... once housebroken, I am getting a dog door so they can
come in and go out as they please.
I live alone in an older house, in the south where it is pretty warm
in the summer... I have one main room I use mostly, and they will only
have freedom to be in this one room, or outside. (It's the only air
conditioned room in the house).
OK, Sorry to ramble on, but please help me decide If I should stick to
getting one dog or maybe two.
