A yard should not be the only exercise a dog gets, sorry. They need to be taken on daily walks, and made to heel either besides, or behind you.

If you don't believe that, look up Cesar Milan's dog guidelines. Taking your dog for a walk is vital - it allows the dog to take a walk with his/her pack, and makes for a more obedient dog at home.

Oh, awesome! Good job.

Yeah, just go to the link I posted. It lists pure breeds, and those "designer dog" mutts, and gives a summary of information for pure breeds if that's what you're looking for.

Ah, I myself would make sure to not get a yipper. But that's up to you

I would also not consider a dauchound (however its spelled). They are very needy and tend to latch on to one person in the house, and will protect that person like no other. My roommate has one, and he is so cute but man he's mean, he won't let annyone near my roommate when he's next to him. Yeesh. But I would not suggest one of those if your house is already full of dogs, he would probably not get the attention he needs and end up acting out. Just a thought

dashounds are too fragile in my opinion, same with italitan grey hounds to be around other large dogs.

Sorry to bring this up but were you not saying only a few months ago that you did not have the money to take your other dog to the vet.

Should you not keep your money that you would be spending on a new dog to care for your current animals?

Kayla, I was thinking the EXACT same....

Dachshunds are very fragile and prone to back problems.

wiener dogs, in my experience as a dog groomer and pet sitter....
are the devil.
they yip, and bite without a second thought. they are prone to be obese, they are very needy and they are one of the hardest breeds to house break, if not THE hardest.

In many states/counties it's not legal to have more than four dogs and it looks like Kansas City has this as a law too. There are some exceptions like if you live on a farm or are a registered rescue. So it seems like you will have a while to save up your money as you cannot legally get another dog right now.

Birthday money can run out fast when taking care of an animal. You have a saved amount and an everlasting demand for food,etc.

we have a family that lives right next to us that has 5 cats and 5 dogs and right next to them lives a animal control worker. P.S we will probably adopt the dog when we lose our 17 year old dog
