We would like to get another puppy and currently own a skye terrier. Of course we would give our current dog the same amount of attention as the new puppy so he doesn’t feel like he’s being replaced. Is this possible or will he become hostile towards the puppy?
My dog is the friendliest dog I know. I have never seen him harm another dog besides the time when he was defending me from our neighbors dog who was growling and snapping at me. Another time our good friends brought their dog to our house and Duffy was very hostile towards it. But, my other neighbor’s dog came over to our house and came inside and Duffy was quite friendly. It’s hard to expect what he will do.

Are you crazy? Puppies take so much work. A foster dog or rescue dog comes pretty much trained and ready to love. And you can’t tell me that the dog does not love you even more for saving his life. They’re throwing away perfectly good dogs, don’t encourage puppymills!
