Well you know what I'm going to say. I had 2 chi's for a couple years before adding the third and I too had all of the same worries. Once we got over the hurdle of acceptance from my two chi's to this new addition I brought into their lives, I must say the experience turned out better than I could've imagined and I wonder why I had so many worries in the first place. It did take a long while ( few months) for my most attached to me chi Bailey to accept Braxton. Having 3 made it easier for me to add a 4th. And frankly...Brax grew up to be opposite of her outgoing puppy personality, she's a very sweet, quiet, easy going adult. Once I brought in Ava, everyone got used to her pretty quickly. Ava sounds like Carolina in that she really is a mommas girl, if she's in my lap she thinks it is solely hers. But still I say we have just as nice a balance as a 4 chi household as we did as 3 and 2. Remember that everyone will find their place eventually. And you don't know with the new pup where she may fall in your household, she may be more of a loner like Brax lol, or independent like Kendall. Whatever the case, it'll work out. And there's a reason this breeder thinks this chi is a great fit for you. Sounds like you have everything to offer and this chi has everything to gain so I say go for it.
I had a feeling you would say something like that. Thanks for the encouraging words. Carolina and Ava do sound a lot a like, being momma girls. I am afraid adding number 3 would open the door for 4, haha. I really have a lot to think about.
