Well, I guess I wouldn't have much to add. The idea of fostering a dog would be a winner in my book. However, I have found that foster dogs have a way of becoming permanent pets!!! LOL I currently have four dogs - 2 Australian Shepherds, 1 Weimaraner, and 1 Parson Retriever - all female. They are all in the house. I have made an effort to give the two Aussies - age 11 and 8 - areas of the house that are theirs only, so that they have an 'escape zone' when the other two (the Weim is 2 and the PR is 1) get too rambunctious for them. I also gave rooms to the two youngsters that are theirs alone to play in without fear of destroying anything. Expenses have definintely gone up, and I have to work at giving everyone exercise time (since I don't have a fenced in outside area and we live in town), but that's a choice I made in the beginning. It's become harder with each addition, but I think that I would be bored with just one dog! The hardest part of owning a "pack" - finding sitters when I need to go out of town.

I have three pit bulls and a kitten and see no problem with more than 2 dogs or animals. In fact my pits all get along with each other and my kitten. the more dogs you have means more responsiblity. The more u have the more love is in your home!!!!!!!!!!!
as long as you can afford the vet bills go for it... I love dogs and usually have 3 or more but I am stopping at 2 at this time. Not enough moooolah to keep them all in the "life that they have become accustomed to" :) good luck
