Hello there! I am so glad that you are taking the time to consider a specific breed! That is great! I agree with golden Ret. being on the list, my parents have had several! I also think it is a great idea to get an adult! You never really know what you are getting and there are a million great wonderful dogs that need great wonderful homes! Good Luck. I too know how important it is for the kiddos, my son is legally blind! :) good luck and the right one will find you!
I Have A rohdesian ridgeback boxer mix from a rescue.THE BEST DOG EVER!wE GOT HER WHEN MY OLDEST SON WAS 2 AND HAVE HAD A SECOND NOW WHO`S 4.THEY RIDE HER AND PULL EVERYTHING IMAGINABLE SHE NEVER MOVES.BOTH OF THEM COULD PULL A STEAK OUT OF HER MOUTH AND SHE WOULD DO NOTHING.RESCUE DOGS ARE THE WAY TO GO THEY APPRECIATE EVERYTHING THEY GET.
