Anyways, any thoughts??
You're very kind to consider giving an unwanted dog a home.
That said, I would recommend that you not do it. You're not doing it because you're compelled to have a dog. You're doing it because you feel obligated. (That's what it sounds like from here).
Dog ownership is a lot of work. More than I ever thought it would be. I absolutely adore my dog, and I'm committed to her for as long as she lives. This is my last dog, though.
I know you've had experience owning a dog before, so I'm sure you'll do what's right for you.
