So…3 completely precious puppies were rescued this morning from an evil man close to the campus of the college where I work. We’re having trouble finding homes for them and I’m worried about what will happen to them if we don’t. Fiance and I have desperately wanted a puppy since we moved in together, but we haven’t gotten one because Fiance wants a larger dog and we have a condo–meaning no yard. But I just can’t get over the DESPERATE desire I have to take this puppy home with me….
Can you blame me? So, just tell me that our small square footage and our cat won’t let me have the puppy and I’ll try to let it go. Help!

Haha, you sound like me!
And I’m waiting on an adoption app to clear, so I’m not so good at the talking out of it.

You sound like me – our apartment complex does not allow pets. But I want a dog so badly!

Awwww!! We waited until we moved into a house to get our puppy, and I am so glad we did. I had major puppy fever like you though, my Fiance and my mom kept me in line. But I am not even kidding, we picked up our puppy the same day we moved into our house!!! lol.

Do you rent? Because if you do, just think that if you have to move, you’ll be restricted by only have a place that allows and is big enough for a dog.
Plus think of the bills. He’ll have to have all his shots and there are a lot when they’re puppies. Plus, he’s going to have more vet bills down the track. And the cost of food and training and toys and things he ruins as a pup. If you’re saving for a wedding, then think about the costs in terms of what you could potentially not afford because of puppy costs.

I had a big dog in a tiny apt…. but it ment three times a day walks, so it was a big commitment.
By The Way, cuteness overload!

This is how I got my first puppy. A co-workers niece found an abandoned litter of puppies and they sent around a picture to see if anyone would adopt. I thought about it all night and when I went back to say that I wanted to adopt they had all been adopted. So my Fiance and I had puppy fever and we went to the shelter and adopted a wonderful border collie puppy whose mother was abandoned when she was pregnant. Last week I went back to the shelter and adopted a friend for her. So I’m probably not the best influence hehe

Oh i know exactly!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! how you feel I want a puppy so badly.
But you dont want one
You have to come home all the time
If you are in the middle of wedding planning that means you have to schedule puppy visits while meeting vendors, taste tests, working out, dress fittings, etc etc
At the beginning the puppy will keep you awake, deminishing beauty sleep for the big day
They pee…in the rug
Your kitty would hate it and may take that anger out on your wedding stuff (decorations, dress?)
If you are renting, you might have to move one day and lots of places dont allow little cute squishy puppies…
just some things to think about 🙂

I say take the puppy. But don’t go tricking yourself – cute puppies that aren’t a restricted breed find homes, trust me. If that was a mangled 11 year old dog missing a leg, that’s a different story. The dog in the picture is chubby, fuzzy, and of course will be adopted haha.

What kind are they?
I agree with the rental part. Definatly wait until you own because if you ever have to move and find a new place it will be extremely difficult!
Depending on the breed it can do okay in an condo. If it is a higher energy dog you will just have to walk it and make it get more mental and physical exercise. House training it might suck though because you will have to go in and out every half hour or so. Well you don’t HAVE to but I found the best method was to just keep going out with the puppy BEFORE an accident was able to happen. Thsi meant pretty much every half hour.
Introducing a puppy to your cat probably would be challenging but usually they will end up tollerating eachother. My cat hissed at first then was okay. If the puppy came to close he would swat him. Finally, around 8 months later, they pretty much know to respect eachother.

Ok if you want a reason not to adopt a puppy.
1) Fiance and I are buying a house and instead of furniture we will be spending money on a $7,000 fence.
2) Since last Saturday I have been up every two hours potty training.
3) They make your house filthy and you are always cleaning. Floors need to be done every other day.
4) They are expensive. I have spent $500 this week on supplies, shots, and food. And puppies need to go every few weeks for shots.
5) They cannot be left alone even for a second. I have to bring my puppy in the bathroom just to pee so I can watch her at all times.
6) Gym time to get ready and in shape for the wedding, null and void.
Okay now that I listed all these things. I love my dogs more than life and I’ve only had our new puppy for 10 days and I couldn’t see myself being without her. They offer such unconditional love and I am so happy that they are in my life.

Awwww I love puppies. They grow so fast…. but I am really happy about not having to wake up every few hours to take a puppy outside to pee anymore.
