I am looking for a small breed dog prefferably a puppy for my three yr old. She lost her jack russell due to old age as i had him from a puppy when i was a kid. I told her that i would find her a new puppy to be friends with. At first she didnt like the idea but i explained to her that we all miss him and that maybe a new friend would make her feel better and she finally agreed. So now the search is on I live in Whitwell, TN and i can drive a little disteance but not too far. If anyone can help me on this it woould be much appreciated.

I agree, also Australian sheep dogs are good if your DS has a boatload of energy.

Definitely look into your local shelter. We adopted our little toy poodle/miniture schnauzer mix from the shelter, BEST DOG EVER. She is wonderful with my son. She is just the right size at 12 pounds. Not too small but definitely sturdy. She has tons of energy and loves to play.

research local shelters and rescues in your area, there are always moms that get saved from shelters and they and their babies need foster homes until pups are old enough to be adopted themselves. i also wish you would consider older dogs as well, you would be teaching your child a very valuable lesson about not judging by appearance or age. old dogs deserve nice homes to end their days in too!

Don't support breeders. You will find a wonderful companion at your local shelter:)

Yes shelters or rescues! They have puppies, adults, small breed, large breed. And they are all in need of a home. I am also in TN and in animal rescue. If you want to send me a message I can help you find a new family member :)
