New JRT now or Later?
by Anne Marie
Hi I am currently living with my friend and have been for quite a while, together we bought and have brought up a male JRT (Charlie) who is now 6 months. I am getting married in approx 1 years time.
I/We were hoping to get a new JRT pup shortly. The plan was that when I moved out and got married I would take one of the JRT's and my friend the other, although both would see each other regularly (4-5 times per week MINIMUM) and both would spend overnights in both houses each week and still go for walks together. However I do not want to cause Charlie or our new potential puppy grief and distress - would this contact seem sufficient to them or would they feel distraught when one leaves?
Also does anyone know if it would be better/easier on Charlie if the new pup was a male or female?
At present Charlie is a very well trained and socialised puppy and has had a lot of time spent with him during the training phase so I do not want to set him back in his development but thought perhaps it would be company for him as he really enjoyed the one time I brought him out for a walk and playtime with another friends dog. All help/advice greatly appreciated. x
