So an aquaintance needs to rehome a dog due to medical issues (he can't affort to buy the medicine for the dog) and I'm really thinking about taking the dog in myself. My concern is that it might not be the best idea. I'm almost 20, have full-time job that pays above minimum wage (so thats good), I'm going to school twice a week, and I have a partner with their own dog. I'm living at home with family, so they'd be able to watch the dog if I can't. My partner and I calculated out the monthly cost of the doggo and its definitely something I can cover. Also, my sibling who also lives at home has a tornado of a dog and my partner has a friendly dog so he'd have a friend at each place. The only hurdle I have to get through is my family (since I live with them).
I'm just wondering if its responsible of me to try to take this on at this point? Everything I know about the dog endears him to me but I want to make sure I'm being rational about this decision.
