Yay, we got the doggie :D

I am THINKING about taking this dog (below) from my brother. Long story short - it was a stray, wandered up to a nursing home, a nurse brought it home to find a home for it, my brother was doing work on her house (he's in construction/home improvement) and she gave it to him. He took it home without asking my SIL and they really don't want a dog, but he felt bad for it. Right now I have 1 dog, around the same size; we believe she's a beagle/jack russell mix from what we've researched. She's pretty much an outside dog - we have 1.33 acres, a good portion fenced, and a separate (very large) fenced dog lot that she lives in most of the time. She used to be with another dog at my parent's house, and she gets lonely. We give her plenty of attention, bring her in sometimes (the cats just loooove this) and let her run all in the big fenced area weekends, evenings, mornings - whenever possible that we can be sure no one lets her out or gets to her.

Do you guys think this little gal would be good for my Molly to play with? They *think* she's a daschaund (sp?!) mixed with beagle? I know Bailey has daschaunds? Any info about this type of dog? She seems like a very good-natured doggie and I fell in love with her. But OMG, look at this little cutie pie!!









TIA!
No real advice for you but OMG, what a darling little doggie!! I say take her! She'd probably make a great friend for your dog.

I'd love to see pics of Molly - ours is a Jack Russell mix and is turning out to be a great dog.

Ask and ye shall receive!

I'm not totally sure on Molly. She looks mostly beagle to me, but she acts JUST LIKE the Jack Russell my brother had a few years back. I don't really care what she is, I just love her

Not the best pic. I had given her a bath, taken her back out, and she began to roll in the dirt

Oh, she's a cutie! Can I have her?

Can you test the waters before you commit? Because they're both adult females, you could have problems. It depends on whether one is content to let the other be the alpha. My dog can't live with other female dogs, but she ignores males pretty well.

I think we could do that... let them be together for a little bit and see how it goes, ya know? And we don't think the new doggie is adult; she's still cutting teeth and chewing CONSTANTLY. Would that make a difference you think?
I'm not sure. It would be better if they grew up together. Dogs are funny, especially female ones. :P

ADORABLE!!! Oh my gosh...both of them are just too cute!

Can you get the pup and do a test run to see how they get along?

I've decided that I'll never get down to my original weight, and I'm OK with that--After all, 8 pounds 2 oz. is just not realistic.
this is a beautiful dog. I have 2 dogs, my border collie was 9 yrs old when I couldn't resist getting my other dog. It wasn't so easy at first, but, they learn to love each other!
Their biggest squabble is over food. I solved that by feeding them separately, and not giving hand outs to one , in front of the other.
They are both lovable!

Rheanna, Molly is precious! I love her sparkly eyes. You may be right about the Jack Russell...her chest kind of favors them. Her face is all beagle though!

Thanks everyone! We'll end up doing a trial run, if I can convince hubby that we need this dog that is He hasn't met her yet, but when he does, he'll fall in love with her just like I did!

Ab-star, thanks, about Molly! Like I said, that wasn't a great pic of her, but I already had it on my photobucket. I'll have to take some more soon though. She looks very serious in that one, but usually she's "smiling." Hehe. I see what you're saying about her chest. She's smaller than a beagle too, and sometimes, just for a moment, looks like a Jack Russell. She does a lot of hyper bouncing too :P
Aww I hope it works out! They're both so cute!
Awww, they're both adorable, and they look around the same size. I think they'd be perfect together. I'm a firm believer that dogs fare better when they're in a pack, meaning at least 2 of them. And I don't think they need to grow up together. I have 3 dogs now, and got them at more than a year intervals. The first 2 days, Bailey (the doxie) didn't like the new puppy, but now all my dogs are friends. That's the nice thing about dogs, they move on and never hold grudges. They are so adaptable. I don't know much about Beagles, but I think dachshunds are the best dogs ever! They're a lot of dog for their size, in a good way. My little guy has the most personality of any dog I've met in my life. Beagle/doxie seems like a good mix too, she looks very cute. Now last weekend, we saw a dachshund/boxer mix at the park, and that was one funny-looking dog. But I'm glad you're going to give it a trial run. The only thing I feel I need to caution you on is that dachshunds are hunting hounds and have a tendency to run off if they see "prey" in the distance. Just make sure you keep it fenced in. Good luck!

They are very close to the same size, so I think that would be good. I'm glad that we have the fenced yard and then the separate fenced dog yard as well. My husband thinks that having a dog inside all the time is insane (his pets have always been outdoors, even cats) and we have two cats in the house that hate Molly with a passion. Plus, we're gone for generally 10+ hours a day, soo... I wouldn't have dogs if I didn't have somewhere good to keep them, KWIM?

Oh, and 2happy - that makes sense as well! I hope you guys are right, that it won't be any big deal.

But I'm rambling! Thanks everyone. Now I just have to convince my husband, any suggestions? Oh, and name suggestions? Hehehehe :P. Molly is actually "Molly Mae" so I was thinking Maggie and "Maggie Mae." The dog is currently Daisy, but I'm very "eh" about it.
She's so cute!

WE BROUGHT HER HOME! YAY!!

We brought her by this afternoon for a trial run and ended up leaving her here! They sniffed each other's butts for a second, both tails wagging, and then took off around the yard, playing

They were sleeping together in the doghouse a few minutes ago. They're best buddies, and Molly hasn't barked at all this evening. They both SMILED the entire day. I'm so happy they're getting along!!
Aw Rheanna, sounds like it was meant to be!!

Did you decide on a name? I love Maggie Mae! (maybe because I love Rod Stewart too!!)

Thanks ab-star! I think it was meant to be too

I was torn on the name. I love Maggie, as well as Maggie Mae, but for some odd reason Daisy "fit" her better, and she was already responding to it anyway. So I kept it Daisy. I wanted to make up my mind by this evening because I ordered her a name tag. I like the NAME Maggie better, but Daisy was just better for her, so Daisy it is.

I'm thrilled
They're best buddies..

Awwwww! Isn't it great to see them so happy? I can't imagine having just one dog. My dogs will cuddle up and sleep together, and they are just too cute!
