Mentoring as a cure for puppy fever


Recommended Posts

Like many of you, I'm puppy mad, but I'm 74 and already have two youngish dogs, so I need a puppy like I need a hole in my head. 


I think I found a great solution.   I'm buying a pedigree bitch pup for the 11 yr old girl next door.  Her parents got their choice of breed (JRT, lifestyle block, needs vermin control).   The understanding is that I'll mentor. If she's responsible about dog care and the pup matures well, the dog will be bred in a few years,  I'll help, and if all goes well, she can reimburse me for the purchase price with proceeds from puppy sales. 


No big deal if all doesn't go well.   Sh#t happens sometimes.
