hello. My brother in law has a 2 year old australian shepard they have to give away. they are planning on moving to alabama so he can attend military training there. And cant bring their dog. we already have 2 shetland sheepdogs. a 13 year old and 1 year. they get along great with eachother, the 7 year old house rabbit that roams as he pleases , and our chickens. their dog is a female dog. our dogs are male and female. looking for advice please. he (bil) called us yesterday and asked for us to take the dog. we need to do a trial run first before i say yes. the snow is about 4 feet high in the yard. We only have paths for our own 2 dogs to do their (stuff) etc. how could we really see how they will get along. espeically in my dogs own terrioirty. how would you work this out? i am trying to get a friend at work interested in the dog. perhaps she may want the dog. (i hope). thanks in advance for advice!
