    No, please don’t adopt a dog again. What if this dog becomes needy and agressive? You enjoy the freedom just having a cat gives you..stick with that 🙂

    Definitely wait! I think you’re probably just missing your dog, so please don’t adopt a dog on a whim! You just got rid of a dog because it required too much attention. It wasn’t just that dog. All dogs require a lot of attention! I wouldn’t do it.

    I am sure you miss your lil Boo to pieces. But right now, if you did adopt a new dog, it would be because of that, to fill a void you have. Wait it out. Maybe wait until school is over? Maybe wait until your wedding is over. Give your self a time limit. Wait until then, and see if you feel the same.

    If you want another animal and enjoy cats, maybe adopt another kitty?

    If for no other reason, don’t adopt a puppy without your SO’s buy-in.

    I feel so bad for Boo, who is probably so confused and missing you right now. I wouldn’t get another dog and hope that this one is less work than Boo.

    Consider that that dog looks like a full blooded Pit bull or at least a pit bull mix. Personal opinion aside, many condos and apartment complexes prohibit these types of dogs. You don’t want to get into a situation where you get another dog, only to have to give it away also. It’s not fair to the animals. Back away from Petfinder!!!

    I think you should wait. You could not cope with your little chihuahua, and it must have been really hard for her to re-adjust, and to deal with the heartbreak of being seperated from you. Is that dog a staffy/pitbull mix? Generally, staffies and pitbulls make awesome pets, but it is extra hard training, and you need to be 100% committed. It would be very unfair to adopt another dog after giving one away, and to adopt this one out too if you can’t cope. Also, staffies/pitbulls/bull terriers (what this one might be a mix of) require great amounts of excercise and space. We had a staffy x bull terrier, and at the age of 13 he still wanted a walk 4 times a week at the beach, and loved running around all of the time. By the sounds of things your house won’t be too suitable, and you might find it hard to commit to daily walks, and the dog might become bored with only a small patio as a play area! Wait until you’re ready to commit, are not wanting to fill the void of Boo, and for when you and your SO live somewhere that has a big yard with grass and space to run around.

    Get another kitten. You said that you find cats easier to deal with, and that they suit your lifestyle.

    ps. That dog is gorgeous, I can understand that it would be tempting!

    Sounds like you made the right decision with your last dog.  But definitely step away from petfinder for a couple days and talk it over with your SO.  Make sure you really want another puppy, you don’t just miss Boo.  If you’re sure you want another dog, do you really want one right now?  If you’re in school, planning a wedding (?), you’ll be super busy and it might not be the best time.  If you’d rather spend all your free time running a puppy outside to pee and cleaning up puddles – go for it.

    You do not have enough stability yet to adopt a dog. Enjoy your dog free time.

    You can’t handle having a dog, so don’t do it again. Dogs take commitment and patience, which you don’t have. I have never heard of a dog ‘needing’ to be near someone 24/7; YOU trained him to be that way, by nature he isn’t needy. I’m not sure if my mentioning he is a chihuahua is supposed to mean he is especially needy- I have 2 myself and they are alot to handle, but do you know what I do? I walk them, give them exercise and attention. I don’t just love them when I feel like it, or not walk their energy off because I don’t want to.

    Don’t mess up another dog just because you want a cute puppy- what so the novely runs dry and you give him away too? people should adopt animals to make their lives better, not worse.

    I don’t think you’re ready for the responsibility of a dog yet.

    @FutureMrsJohnson_:  i’m a sucker for pitties and that face is just so darn cute! i honestly think only you can answer your own question. only you know if it’s the right time to get another dog. i’m glad to hear your condo association doesn’t discriminate against pitties.
