Geoffrey Posted July 15, 2007 Report Share Posted July 15, 2007 I figured that since several people on here have "auxiliary" dogs, this might be a good place to ask. My mom's friend is looking for a new dog and asked for my input. Originally she had a bichon frise, but the grooming was too much to handle. The woman has multiple sclerosis and a few other health problems (in fact, I think she is just finishing up chemotherapy) and cannot handle a large dog or one that is high maintainence. She seems to want a low-maintainence, calm dog that can easily fit into her household. I don't think she wants anything that is prone to jumping on her, though, because her health issues make it painful for a dog to sit in her lap or anything. Is there a low-maintenance breed that might fit her needs? Oh, and I'm sure her husband will help out with the dog too so I don't think her health issues would make having a dog impossible....she just wants to be the main caretaker I think. (her husband works and her son is in college, and she is at home with her health problems every day). Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
