    @KMARINO The rational Peggy used on me was that it would be good for our only dog at the time to have a pack mate home with her for company while we are not home. It actually did work well, though Moe hasn't yet earned free run of the house, Winnie and Moe already adore each other and are bestest friends. @Libra926 may not agree , but I believe it NORMALLY works better having opposite sexes as pack mates. If we were to judge Winnie's reaction by their first meeting though, we probably would have thought that it was a bad idea... she hated him and wanted him to just go away... it only took 3-4 days for her to accept him.

    Good luck on this... it is a big decision that should be made by both of you.

    @KMARINO how exciting! How can you pass that "deal" up. He needs to not think about himself but about Vegas. Vegas would be so happy to have a girlfriend! He just can't deprive Vegas from having a girlfriend. That is just not right...how would he feel without YOU! I cannot wait to hear how it goes when he comes home! OMG my husband would be dying right about now and would probably come home early. Maybe she can send a pic before he gets home and you can post the pic somewhere...I mean really how can you resist a bullie puppy! Good luck and cannot wait to hear the end of this one.......FIGHT until the end! GIRL POWER.

    Okay, I started this and got interupted. Does Joe want some other breed of dog or just plain not another dog?

    Having 2 dogs is so much better for the dog: constant companion, they exercise each other, life is so not boring when there are 2; but they also feed off each other, what one doesn't think of getting into (or chewing up) the other will.

    I hope you are driving over to get her for a trial run tonight!

    @KMARINO OK .. so I would attack this situation in two ways. Tell Joe it's his early birthday present ....... AND/OR agree to foster this little baby girl which will give you the option of either falling head-over-heels in love with her and end up keeping her. However, if it just doesn't work out with Vegas then a new home can still be found for her whilst you're fostering!!

    11 week old...not to bust your bubble. But...how does it have it's papers back yet from AKC? Or...did they not register the dog and have papers to register? And...why did the buyer not contact the breeder? To many red flags for me...and a friend of a friend...And...to pay $3000 for a dog and selling just as quickly...what does the contract between seller and buyer state? And are you sure it's not stolen...

    I just know all my dogs came with a re-homing clause...And they couldn't have had the pup long enough for the breeder to NOT want the pup back. And even give a refund. It makes no sense to me...

    I find myself more skeptical...than I once was. Dealing with breeders recently...and discussing contracts with a few. Also has me just scratching my head over this one. So allergic that they can't even keep it? Didn't they realize this when they visited the breeders home? Just doesn't sit right with me...

    Sorry I'm not excited for you...but...I'm more of the thoughts this is an "April Fools" thing...OR...the pup is stolen and someone is hustling a pup fast...it doesn't bode well with me.

    Very good points @cadillactaste... excitement can easily distract you from the red flags

    well Chaos is 13 weeks and he has his papers back....I think u should go for it. Of course see the pup and make sure she is healthy. Just keep begging, the men usually give in to us after a while

    I too was questioning why they arent returning to the breeder but maybe they dont have that in their contract? I know i do with cutty and he wasnt quite 3000. would think being that much the breeder would have really included that. BUT if all is above the line the I say heck yeah take the pup, of course making sure that a vet trip is included in the deal so you know what you are getting. What did Mr. Negative say?! Dont keep us in suspense!

    I also say GO FOR IT!!!Of course...take a look at it and make sure your friend isn't pulling one over on you. Was your hubby disappointed when he got home and there wasn't a puppy? Ask your friend for her friends name. Get the breeder's name from your friend's friend and verify the story. Easy as that. Use the AKC website and puppies AKC number and pull up the breeders name. They have to register the pups. At least my mom did...she started it and I finished it.
