Angelique: How to convince my parents to let me get a second dog?
I have a mastiff/black lab mix. He LOVES other dogs, and I have plenty room in my heart for two dogs. My dad has a strict 1 pet only rule. But he said he'll think about it. What do I do? I want my dog to have a little sister! And by the way.. to anybody who says "twice the training" my first dog is already perfectly trained.

Dad's house, dad's rules.
So many kids are not even allowed one dog. If I were you I'd be very grateful for the one I already had.
And don't give me that rubbish about you wanting a "little sister" for your dog. You just want another for yourself.

I am having the same problem-recently one of my beautiful horses died, i'm absolutely heartbroken and all the time i feel so horrible- and i just want to feel needed agian-i would absolutely love a little puppy to dote on and follow me around and sleep with me- my parents think their too sad to get another pet- but the thing is they hardly even interacted with my horse at all they thought they knew him-they didnt so they say their devestated over his death when they didnt have anything to do with him! im just finding it so hard to deal with them-i have found a puppy online that im in love with and I can afford him on my own without them having to pay anything- and i dont want to have to wait a long time to convince them. Because im scared that the puppy will be sold or he'll be a lot bigger :(
Also ignore that bitch who spoke first.
I already have a dog- and last year our other one died from a car accident- and he's very lonely- i would love "a little brother" for him to play with. really it would be a win-win situation.

I have a dog but I want another one to. My parents constantly say no and people say you should be grateful. But think about the dogs. Many dogs live on the street and don't have homes. It may not change the world but it will change the dogs life. Use that strategy of thinking about the dogs benifit. Hope this helps
Answer by Know it
look around town for someone giving away free dogs and just take it home. dad will have a much harder time saying no when there is already a second one in the house.

I am going through the same issue myself how to convince my parents to get me a dog. Dont listen to the first person that wrote they don’t know anything
Answer by Emily
I already have a dog, she’s young and cute, but I want another one because she needs a friend. My dog doesn’t really get along with other dogs, and my sister and I would be the happiest ever. (though we are already really happy.) Should I bargain with my mom that if I get a ninety through hundred on my math test ( I’ve never gotten a hundred) that we will get another dog for my family and my dog?
