    Default A new baby

    Ok my friends., I need some straight up advice. There is a 3yr old English bulldog at the LIBR needs a home. I really want this baby. He is cute and they say he is healthy and will get along with my menagerie. Should I do this? Do you think Brutus is too young. I do not want him to think he is less loved. It would kill me if my baby thought I loved him less because I got another dog. I am going to call LIBR and see about his availability, but I need honest advice on this. Thank you in advance for your help. @Chumley do you know of this doggie??

    Other than having 4 dogs instead of 3... what is the down side?

    Would you be able to have Brutus and your menagerie meet the potential new member in neutral territory to make certain everyone got along well? I would imagine you'd get a home visit/check and all that stuff prior, right? Do you have enough space, time, resources to have this new addition? Would be awesome if you adopted another but those are questions to think about which i'm sure you already have!

    I don't think adding another bully would take away from your Brutus...it would add a pack member for him, a playmate, it's wonderful when two dogs form a bond and it's even more wonderful when you open your home to a rescue dog. I say go for it

    Agree with everyone above. I'm also a firm believer in fate- if it's meant to be than so it shall!

    I saw a new one on their Facebook page today..is it Rocky? They have quite a few available. I say go for it! You should contact them quick because they have a huge following and he'll probably go fast. Chum is a rescue from LIBR too!

    I could bring Brutus to neutral territory but my older babies do not like to leave the house. I think that would traumatize them more than the new dog would.
    My yard isn't huge but it is adequate I think. As far as resources, I'm not rich but I could cut down on eating out and cook at home and that would cover additional doggie food and such. I think I will fill out the app. and see what happens. The other question I have is is it ok to have two males together?

    I saw Rocky, but I dont think he was good with other dogs or cats. The one I was looking at is Rex. He is three yrs old and is good with cats and dogs. I think I am going to fill out the app and see what happens. I would love to give this boy a good home. He will certainly be loved!!

    I say Go For IT!!! If you feel you can handle the financial part of it, I can't see the difference adding one more doggie… LOL Good Luck
