The Anticipation of a New Dog

I've wanted to get a companion for our dog for four + years. When we rescued our pup, an American Bulldog, we lived in a condo. It wasn't an ideal set of circumstances; our place was on the market which meant keeping it ultra-tidy for spur-of-the-moment showings. Furthermore, we didn't have a yard, which I'd always considered a 'must have' for dogs.

As is usually the case, our circumstances didn't matter once we heard about this sweet, shy, abused pup that was in an urgent situation. We had to step up and bring her home.

Since I work for myself, I can organize my time to suit my needs. I vowed to take the necessary steps to help this puppy overcome her extreme anxiety and provide her (and myself) plenty of exercise and socialization. Of course my master plan was to sell this darn condo (which was supposed to be a temporary stop), move into a house with a yard, and get our pup a companion.

"Thanks for saving me. Now I want a friend."
 Okay, so here we are. Almost five years later. Still a single dog family living in a condominium. The same condominium. Can you feel my pain?

In 2011 I blogged about how badly I want another dog: When Will We Get Another Dog? (creative title, huh?).

Then in January of 2012 I blogged about a dog I wanted to rescue: The Dog That Captured My Heart.

But that didn't happen. So, now's the time, folks. There's a beautiful American Bulldog that needs a home. We have a home. Not a perfect dog home but a home. And we are darn good dog people so he's coming to live with us.

Stay tuned for details and photos, there will be plenty of photos!

I'm a happy girl.

Lucky doggie. I can hardly wait to see a photo of your new baby. Us doggie people do what we need to do and I believe we are blessed a little extra for doing so. I'm excited for you. I did read your former blogs about getting another dog. I'm glad you are going to go ahead and make it happen.

Awesome!! Where there is love and a commitment to provide the pet with all it needs, then the yard doesn't matter. You're a happy girl, Frosty will be a happy pup and the new dog will be overjoyed to have such a wonderful home! That's a win-win-win!!!

Awww...how wonderful! We rescued our little girl 2 1/2 years ago and love her to death, even though she's also shy and reactive and a little reserved. And Julia is right--the love and care is more important than the yard. Good luck to all of you!
