Thank you for the great advice. Yes, I study dogs.. their behavior... temperaments and stuff. I met a couple with a pair of Danes that had a litter of pups last month. The doggy parents were amazing! They were both healthy... though a little on the slim side in my opinion... but its because they have SO MUCH land to run and explore.
The adult dogs were extremely obedient, loyal, and mentally and behaviorally stable.
I have considered taking one of their pups. We are in the process of moving.. to a very rural area with hundreds of acres. We will be moved in at about the same time the pups are ready to be adopted.
I have been looking for months for the perfect dog. I have scoured the shelters.. most dogs in this area come with TONS OF BAGGAGE. I have been taking in rescues for years... (I have a Chihuahua and Miniature Pinscher mix who was starved and was abused)
I am still in the contemplative phase. So.. I'm trying to get all the info possible to make the best decision I can.
My animals are members of the family... I want to be sure its a right fit before I commit.
