    How old is Cammy? how mobile is he? Does he like interacting with other dogs?

    It up to you on how you think she can handle it. I would look for a older dog and not a puppy. A puppy will be to much for her and a smaller dog because the dog would be less likely to run into her and hurt her more. JMO

    Yep, I would get a calm older dog rather than a puppy. Some breeders have retired show/breeding stock available, or you can look at rescues

    Only you can judge how your older dog feels, but I think I would get an older dog. Puppies can be a pain in the butt to older dogs. Speaking from experience. Molly is 4 1/2 & Abby is 1 1/2 and Abby would just tortue Molly. Molly was able to run away from her & hold her own. If you think your dog would have trouble keeping up with a puppy, then finding an older calmer dog might work better for you & Cammy.

    Good luck.

    As the others mentioned, I don't think I would go the puppy route either. Try a rescue organization that offers a "foster to adaopt" program, whereas you can "try out" the situation and see how your current dog does.

    Where are you located? Perhaps we can suggest a Lab rescue group in your area.

    well the dog we have been looking at is 2 years old he is from our humane society cammy loves playing with other dogs and the dog would porbaly be mostly mine and since he is a male it would be better he isnt nessicarily a puppy though so would 2 be a good age? because then he still has alot of years letf andsince he is a terrier mix he is quiet a bit smaller than Cammy he is only a little bit taller than a corgy.
