New Member, still looking for a dog
As some of you may know, I am a college student looking for a new member of my pack and I just fostered a dog, Leo, (Fox terrier mix) that did not go so well.
I decided not to adopt Leo because he seemed to be a dog that needed to be outside and around other dogs, and had too much of a GO! GO! GO! personality to be living in my apartment, as well as being too large for such a small space.
I am now looking into getting another puppy around the same age, 6 months from the local shelter. He is a golden retriever/ dachshund mix and currently weighs 11 pounds.
My concern is that I am going to adopt him and we are not going to be compatible as what happened to Leo, I am not able to foster him as I was with Leo, so it is putting all of your eggs in one basket so to speak.
So I would like your advice, how did you know you had found the right dog? Did it just click? I do not want to be put in a situation that is unfair to me and the dog and want to be sure before doing something that is essentially for life.
