My husband and I have been discussing getting a puppy for the family! My 2year old Madison loves all animals! She has been good lately and competed well today in her natural pageant (Everyone was a winner). We just don't know what type of dog to buy her though? My husband wants to have it at the house when we get back from the out of town pageant in a week so we want good,happy,family friendly dogs! Thanks!Answer Question

You do not need to buy a puppy. I just rescued the most adorable 8 week old pure bred boxer. Boxer's have a reputation with being really good with kids. All mine have been, but they are destructive. Anyway go to http://www.petfinder.com/index.html type in what kind of animal you're looking for.
Personally I think 2 is too young. She wont remember the puppy stage and will not be able to help in the training. Also your puppy is going to leave urine and poop around for a while. Are you ok with your 2 year old being around that? Food for thought.
