I have been lucky enough to have dogs as part of my family for most of my life. From Labradors, Fox terriers, chihuahuas to our 3 year old boxer.
Dogs who play well with other dogs and who are great with toddlers are more than welcome to stay in our home. We have secure garden and live on a private road in a steading. With Local country parks in close proximity, I take my boys on daily walks and we would enjoy some more company.
