If you can't bring the bigger dogs inside during the daytime, you could try it in the evening,and just don't put up with any roughness. Another option is putting her in doggy day care to be in contact with other dogs. Otherwise, you're left with buying another small dog. You could check out the shelters to see if they have any mixed breed small puppies.
I would not get another one either. If she is the spoiled princess you say she is, she might get her little nose out of joint. I would just stick with the three you already have. I would never even consider having 3 dogs IF I lived in an apartement. One has always been my max for apartment living.
He's your friend,your partner,your defender your dog.You are his life,his love,his leader. He will be yours faithful and true to the last beat of his heart.You owe it to him to worthy of such devotion
I'm sorry, why is the Lab outside???? Why are either of the 2 doggies outside and now you're looking for another to be inside??? I understand the apartment situation but I do not understand "outside". If you are in an apartment generally speaking that is community areas outside and I'm not following the dogs being left outside. IF that Lab is typical of the Lab temperament, no matter what you think, he/she is NOT happy out there. Labs are a human dog and sincerely need to be inside with interaction. Being left outside is not condusive for this particular temperament.
Respectfully, I agree that you should not be getting a 4th dog but rather figuring out a way to get your outside dogs back into the house.
Yorkies and Labs live wonderfully together. I do not know what the other mix is.
Dang....everyone that has replied is kinda smart. I live in an apartment beside of my parents. The two outside dogs have never stayed inside at all. Their whole lives they have been outside. They have a HUGE lot that is nicer than any other dog lot I have ever seen. So, this is why my two dogs are not an option of coming in the house. Also whoever it was that made the comment about my lab not being a lab, that is so not true. He is full stock AKC choclate lab. He is overweight and maybe it was exagrated that he weighed 150, its probably more like 115. Still yet I would hate to have to take my yorkie to the vet with a borken limb due to the fact that she was crused by him. I was only looking for advice from people who own maybe yorkies with multiple dogs in the house.
I have two dogs, both from the same breeder. Kiba (the first one, my female) has been so much happier since having a buddy to play with. Yes.. he has tried humping her.. but really you just kinda have to let them deal with it. Kiba would go after him and let him know she didnt like it.. and he doesnt even bother trying with her now. All other dogs are fair game though. LOL. And he is still intact (she is fixed) and it is not a problem.
Most breeds, especially terriers (not sure if its the same with yorkies) do best with dogs of the opposite sex.
