Advice on getting a dog?
My daughter wants a dog so bad, but she is only 3 and not able to care for it herself. I don’t want a puppy and I plan to get a shelter dog. My husband and I are in negotiations about scooping poop. Oh, I also have a 12 y/o cat who is probably not going to be thrilled. (She’s a bit of a princess.)
Do you have any recommendations on types of dogs that are good with kids and cats, don’t smell (my mom’s Yorkie stinks even right after a bath!) and don’t require a ton of grooming? I’m completely willing to take care of the dog and do the necessary upkeep, but I do not want a terribly high maintenance pet.
