I'm researching puppies (and how to raise them) because I've always wanted one, but I work 10 hour days M-F...I've had some suggested that it'd be fine, others that any dog under 1 year old would be bad news...any ideas, folks?
That sounds like bad news. I love dogs, but I wouldn't have one unless I knew someone could take care of them at least once while I was at work, especially while they're a puppy and need to be crated. I doubt a small dog could make it that long.
