Default Thinking of getting another dog

need advice and help...we currently have a 8 year old female JRT. She has
lived with us since she was 12 weeks old. She was fairly social as a pup but
over the years she has not been too dog friendly...mainly with other females
no matter what size. There are other dogs (mainly males) that she does not
seem to have a problem with...we would really like to get another dog and we
are thinking of getting a male whippet puppy...I'm just somewhat fearful
that the JRT would be too much for that dog...any advice would be greatly
appreciated..I'd love to have both dogs ..btw the JRT is an absolute great
dog and we love her alot.

This is a tough one. Sometimes things are going so well and we upset the

cart. OTOH, sometimes it adds so much to the fun of the house, that it is

great choice. Obviously, if you get another dog, it has to be a male. I

Whippets and expect to get one (or some sort of sighthound) in the future.

think if you are very careful and supervise carefully, you could do it.
Probably depends on how much time you have to devote to the project. Good


i've read that whippets have very thin skin that tears easily, so you'd
really have to supervise well. JRTs can be dog aggressive, so you'd really
have to watch carefully for any tooth-skin contact.
