I think Lily lost her mind [Hello Dogforum!]

*ahem* Well, hello there. I've never actually done one of these before which is a little intimidating. But anyway,

My name is Abby and I'm 16, which I'm pretty sure you could care less about how old I am. I write books and blog as a job [Even though it pays $0]. I am the mother [Considering, I do most of the care] of Lily, a giant 65lb Labradoodle.


Met Lily, my wonderful Labradoodle. The picture doesn't do much justice on her coat but she has a wiry coat that doesn't grow long or soft at all. She's also a cream color.
Yes, she came from a breeder. We know the breeder personally and sadly, she's turning into a puppy mill now. The owner is 65+ years old and she's just losing her mind. Her Dogs aren't in like tip-top shape since they are outside Dogs. And according to the inspection report, everything had something that needed fixing. So I'm currently trying to get her out of the breeding business.

However, we are trying to add a second Dog to our family. We live in a trailer but Lily [Who is hyper beyond insane] gets a lot of exercise.
We looked into a Yorkie who's family was moving down here but were moving to a place where they couldn't keep Dogs. But I think they found a home for her.
I'm trying to convince my dad to let me adopt a Pit Bull mix and I found a lot of perfect ones at our local humane society but my Dad is scared of Pit Bulls so it will take a lot (:

Hello! I'm 16 too, and I also write books, though I don't blog. I'm the mother of a 5-7lb chihuahua, haha, so I can't really relate to having a huge dog. I can however tell you that if your dad is scared of pits, you probably won't get one. My mom was scared too, and despite me taking her to the APBT shelter where I volunteered, she wouldn't allow me one. She got me a sophie (the chihuahua) instead.

However, you could try just making an appointment at your local shelter for you, your family, and your current dog to come interact with the dogs there, and see who you click with.

Welcome to DF and we are happy to see your post! I think southerngirl has great advice and I second it!!! We have two dogs (three cats, sigh) and they absolutely love having "dog" companionship! They wake each other up in the morning with kisses, kiss each others ouchies (and I am quite serious!!) and are basically inseparable. I think two dogs is less "work" than one, as they run together all the time, I can't keep up with our catahoula girls!
