Many of you commented on the dog thread I posted a couple days ago, about adopting Molly the Lab/Dobie mix. I spoke to the foster mom again yesterday. She called and said that she really doesn't think Molly is a good fit for our family. Molly is 70lbs and very active, like a 70lb puppy., just housebroken. She will play for hours with her other dogs, or her teenagers. Yes, she is great with kids.. She is around kids all the way down to 2 years... but thinks the dog would do better in a more active household.. either with other dogs, or with people that run/hike etc. Basically a dog with that energy level if not exercised enough could be detructive. I appreciate her honesty. We are chaotic... with 2 young boys and a baby, but not that active. She recommends a puppy. Not the most active pup of a litter. Said it would probably be better for the puppy to grow up with the kids and bond with family. It would be more work for us for awhile... but she thinks it would be a better fit in the long run for our family.... Thoughts? She said out of the puppies - Amy, Alex, Mike or Ike would be a good fit.. she says the others are ranbunctious and have huge paws, and will be bigger. http://www.petfinder.com/petnote/displaypet.cgi?petid=15354274 http://www.petfinder.com/petnote/displaypet.cgi?petid=15354285 http://www.petfinder.com/petnote/displaypet.cgi?petid=15381486 http://www.petfinder.com/petnote/displaypet.cgi?petid=15381497 They are all being fostered in Tenessee right now and will be shipped to New England on January 8th.
