I’ve been thinking of getting a dog for a while now but I have just recently begun looking at local shelters. I found a dog, a 6 year old Chihuahua mix named Milo, at a shelter in Connecticut that I’m in love with. My BF and I are scheduled to go and meet him this weekend.
He won’t be alone much because he’s small enough that I can take him places with me, on the subway, to work, and home when I go to Detroit to visit my parents.
I’ve never had a dog of my very own before. My BF’s parents, and brother both have dogs and my sister has a dog so I’ve dog sat all of them before for a couple of weeks at a time. And by dogsat, I mean live-in dog sitting. I guess I just want to be 100% sure that this is the best thing for me and the dog.
Does anyone have any advice?
