    Default Fort worth shelter

    This may not be posted in the correct spot. But fort worth TX is having to get rid of a couple hundred (may be less now) Dogs and cats by this weekend or they will euthanize them due to no space at the shelters...

    I've already begged and pleaded with my husband to adopt (dogs are going for $25 included spay/shots) and he has a hard NO because we're in an apartment and our little bully is a lot of work

    I've teared up like 5 times today just looking at those pictures, and my heart goes out to them.....my question is for general. Hypothetically, would our 6 month girl bully accept and get along with a totally different breed of dog? I'm almost positive she would adapt and love it, but I'm curious if that would be a positive impact on her or negative??

    Either way....I can't get one

    And to add, are they that much more expensive?

    Bullies usually will get along with other dogs very well as long as the other dog is not aggressive toward her. Depending on the breed most other dogs are pretty much maintenance free. we have a Beagle and we hardly ever spend money on her except for her annual exam and shots.

    I've never owned a dog that was that high maintenance either, except when they were on their death bed. Spunky is starting to be aggressive with biting during play, I thought it was an attention thing...until we started playing with her alllll night and giving her all our attention...I wondered if another dog would calm that side of her down, or at least take it out on the other dog lol

    I got Hank when he was 5 months and he got along great with my mom and dad's boxer, Gus, who is 2. They play all the time. The size difference is not a factor at all haha...Hank holds his own...he goes for the back of Gus' legs...cheap shot, yes, so funny though.

    I think Spunky would do fine! After we adopted Gio who was 1 at the time we adopted a French Bulldog a month and a half later who was 4. They both get along great, it's hard to imagine not having both of them since they are the best of friends and are always together! I think you should talk your husband into it! If you ever did adopt another one I hear that having a boy and a girl usually works better then having two boys or two girls.

    @mcraven2 I know I've been trying so hard to talk him into it!! But he is standing firm on his no

    I think spunky would love a little friend, but until we get a house, it doesn't look promising. I'll keep trying though!
