First of all-c'mon people,let's get this Animal Forum goin!!!! hehe Some of you know we are moving to a house(close Friday)!!! Well,we were at my sis in law's this past weekend and she is out in the country.Her neighbor had a litter of Australian Shepard/Lab mixes. We immediately fell in love and Kevin wanted a female and I wanted a male. We decided on the male and Kevin will get the t.v. he wants for the new house. I am a little heistant,because we are going to be busy and new to the house and originally wantefd to be settled in before we got a dog. My sister in law is going to bring him down Memorial Day weekend.That gives us a couple weeks to get settled. NM only worries are that the dog is 5 months old and I'm worried about housebreaking at that age. The owners said that particular dog had been in the house and not had any accidents,but when we were there,he was outside. I believe this is a great mix and the mother of the pups was just adorable,loved the kids,and friendly as she could be. What do you all think? Are we making a mistake with a 5 month old dog? He seemed obedient,and because of the mix,I'm trying not to worry. Gimme your 2 cents.
