Since I've had Mikey I've really been thinking about getting another dog. At 1st I thought I wanted another chihuahua but as time goes by w/ Mikey he has become such a lap dog, I absolutely love that he loves to cuddle and snuggle but my 2 boys ages 5 1/2 and 7 want a dog that will play w/ them more. They love to run in the back yard w/ Mikey(when he's in the mood) but he is so tiny I constantly have to tell them to be careful. I've thought about rescues but I am so unsure about getting a dog that I don't know what's been done to it in the past. My children come 1st before anything, I wouldn't want to bring a pet into the home that would hurt them. What are some of your experiences (if any) w/ rescues and children? My kids are very good w/ animals and if I was to get another dog I think I would want a medium size breed.
