You could always adopt/rescue an older small or medium sized dog that most likely will be trained already.
They are wiser, mellower and adapt quite easily. And at least the ones we adopted went out of their way to please and even watch out for us.
If I were to get another dog it would likely be from a shelter, like Rascal was, or like my other 2 dogs came from a co-worker as a re-homes. Sure can't afford breeder prices.
Had another couple rescues that did not work out, one resulting in stitches....so I'm leery.
But other issues still exist.
Getting a dog is fairly easy, my problem is keeping them well.

Good morning Café. Thanks for the coffee Shad.
One of the little bantam boys crowed this morning for the first time. Too cute!

The bigger boys are really making nuisances of themselves. Matrix got a hold of Alecia and she got away but not without loosing a pile of feathers. She then turned tail on him and flogged him and ran him off.
They really need to go. Just makes me madder at the cockerel canceler. Jerk.

Can you section off part of the run to segregate them?

I learned a long time ago that a bunny customer in the yard is worth 4 or 5 on the phone. I also learned to be hardnosed about people asking me if I could hold onto one for them -
"if you pay for it up front, I won't sell it, but I've been stuck with rabbits that I could have sold several times over too many times." :idunno

Hope you find a new solution for those guys soon!
