After putting my 11 year old lab down last August, I have started being a foster mom for a animal rescue society. I have only had one foster dog so far who is 8 and has been for the most part really a great dog. She has finally had a nice couple want to adopt her and will probably leave this week. She was such a good experience and now I don't know what dog I would like to foster next. Do I want another older dog who I will most likely have for several month and bond to or should I foster a puppy who tend to be adopted quickly. I like the easiness of an older dog, but it would also be really fun to have a puppy for awhile. What should I DO?

Well do you want to deal with having your things chewed up? Getting up in the middle of the night because puppy is whining to be let out? I would say house training but I have had older dogs need to be house trained. I personally would rather have an older dog. They are calmer than puppies, no chewing. Puppies are cute but they are a pain in the you know what. LOL.
