Hi - I have a deposit on my first dog - a Cockapoo girl. I have seen photos and videos of her - she is from a reputable breeder in Wales. My problem is my 19 yr old beloved cat died a week ago and I had decided to wait a while before doing anything. Then 2 days later a friend at work asked if I could take on 2 kittens as his mother was severely allergic to them and his own cats would not accept them. I adore cats so I agreed. Then I saw a cockpaoo on the street !!! I fell in love and then found the breeder and booked a puppy. She is ready in 2 weeks time. My husband has brain damage after a benign brain tumour and 5 ops. He adores dogs and would love one. I really think a dog would be good for him. However, he gets confused so can never be left on his own. I work 3 days a week and have an incredibly busy life. All my family and friends have said that cockapoo puppies and in fact any puppy will be very difficult to deal with and that they are very naughty. Could you please tell me what to expect if I go ahead with the puppy. I have never had a dog before and my husband cant really help me. I would be grateful for all the advice you could give me. Big thank you in advance.
