Two or three dogs?
Hi people I am looking for your opinions please. I had three dogs and lost one of them to tick bite fever on New year`s Eve. I`m left with an 18 month old male Boerboel and a 16 month old female GSD. The one that died was a xbreed boerboel and she was 3yrs old. She was the GSD`s playmate as all the Boerboel wants to do is eat and sleep and nothing else. Even when we are out for walks he does not do much running around he is just content with walking next to me while the GSD goes wild. Now having had three dogs I`m a bit unsure initially I thought I would get another dog especially a dog that can keep up with the GSD as she sometimes tries to coax the BB into playing only for him to snap at her. As it is I`m unsure whether to get another dog to play with the GSD or leave things as is. Your opinions are most welcome.

Dear Boerboel Owner

I would go for another dog.
