Hey all!! I am new here and excited! We are getting an 8 week old brindle male in about two weeks. I had turned in a contract a month or so ago and thought no way I'd be getting one, due to them having many contacts before me, but due to unforseen circumstances I was able to put a deposit down on one. They are an AKC breeder and this little boy is the great grandson of a champion! Anyways, because we didn't think we'd be getting a pup, we turned in some applications to a few boxer rescues. So now we are thinking of adopting a 2 - 3 year old female rescue, and getting the pup, basically at the same time. Is this a terrible idea? I've always had 2 dogs at a time and think it's good for them to have another dog in the house to play with. I've done a lot of research as getting a boxer is not a spur of the moment decision, but would love input. Will they become dependant on each other? I would love to be able to rescue as well but don't want to cause problems. Any input or other advice is greatly appreciated.
