    yes i think that dogs like having playmates other than humans as we have work and things to do so cant always be there for them. sure but yes they dont always get along so that should be a consideration to. usually one of the opposite sex is a good bet with compatability. so yes why not have 2. i have sarah and 2 bostons.

    I would love to have 2 but everytime I bring it up my husband says no. All he thinks about is twice the vet bills, twice the food, and twice the poop. I think about twice the cuddling, twice the bully kisses, and twice the amount of wiggling that is done when I come home. Although we have had some discussions about whether Rumble enjoys getting all the attention which would not be the case with two. We have spoiled Rumble quite a bit so I'm not sure how that would come into play. I would think that if she was already used to other dogs then I would go for it!

    I think I think like your husband. I had two dogs at once before and that is exactly what happend. It got to be overwhelming at times, since it was just me. I learned for me, my family, our lifestyle, we are a 1 dog type of household.

    I work from home as well so I think it's me knowing that I may not have the energy for two after I deal with one and my other responsibilities. I think just take a look at your resources, lifestyle and include all the family and you should be able to answer the 1 vs 2 question.

    I love having multiple dogs, we adopted Gio when he was a year and a half and 2 months later we adopted our frenchie who was 4 at the time. After about two months of getting to know each other, they bonded and have been inseparable ever since. They eat together, sleep together, wrestle and chase each other. We then adopted our 10 year old bully 3 months ago. She isn't as close as the other two are but that is because she would rather just watch them play while she sits next to her humans! Multiple dogs is wonderful, its so much fun watching them play together!! I definitely recommend getting another!

    You can always see if there is a foster needing a home.

    I have the best of both worlds!! My granddog, Dexter, comes to play with Zeus at lease 3 days a week. Zeus has a bully playmate and I have no extra expenses. They each get to be spoiled when Dexter goes home!-image-jpg

    I have 2 males. They are two weeks apart and from different litters. They have their moments where they don't get along but those are not often. They love to cuddle with me, the kids, and each other. I am considering getting a female when the boys turn 1. I say go for it!!!!
