So...my family and I are looking for a new addition.
We have three children in our family (7, 5, and 10 months) and my wife also has three cats.
We live in Somerville, New Jersey, and we have a pretty large yard, but no fence.
My wife has never owned a dog, and I haven't had a dog in about 15 years, but we are really excited about a new companion. We put a moderately active family, and love going for long walks in our neighborhood.
We have been looking on Pet Finder, for about 3 weeks, with no luck. We’ve put it a decent amount of applications, but we keep either missing out, or not being a match due to the kids, cats, or fence. We may end up just walking into a shelter and taking a look.
We want to adopt and adult dog, because people only adopt puppies, and we want to give an adult dog a nice home. We don’t have a preference male or female. We’d like a mutt, but looking for a medium sized dog, potentially mix with either beagle, lab, Australian cattle dog, or some sort of hound.
Any tips, info, or advice?
Thanks in advance!
