So I've finally got dh's approval for another dog. We have always had two dogs up till last Christmas when our 5yo weim bit our daughter on the face. We've been pretty much mourning her (the dog) for the past year along with being busy but things are stable now and our other dog is acting a bit lonely (he's so excited when we have furry company) so I talked dh into getting another dog. I want a schnauzer mix thats at a local rescue, he wants a lab to hunt with and his sis is looking for a home for her cocker. His parents are willing to take the cocker but would rather have a beagle and our other dog is my baby so dh feels like he should be able to have a dog. This is though, I will be the one doing all the training and cleaning up after this dog. So, WWYD?

I have had all three breeds and it just comes down to which fits your family the best. My schnauzer mix was awesome she was like an old soul and knew my oldest sister was different and watched out for her but the down side to this breed is they can be very barky and protective of their families. Cockers can be great companions but they can also be nasty. Labs are high energy dogs. This of course goes for any breed but if you take the time to socialize the dog you should not have an issue. Just make sure that the cocker or schnauzer are good with kids.
