Hi I'm Kathy,
I am new here and will be getting my first dog (a puppy that is) in 10 days.
I have 3 kids and am married. My daughters are 8 and 10, and my son is turning 8 months in 4 days.
We decided to go with a breeder since its important to me that the dog have no underlying training issues (plus the shelters in a 20 mile radius around me only have pits and a lab if I'm lucky...)
I live in the country in RI with the breeder I'm going with in the same town as me (population is around 1000, my daughter is in the same class as the breeder's grandson) I am lucky enough to rent a large 3 bedroom house with 2 acres of backyard. My daughters want to set up an agility course in the backyard when our daughters are older. (I stay at home and we plan on returning to homeschooling when they are in middle school)
