my biggest concern would be that you are 17 and live with your mum and shes not keen on having a dog!!! Are you at school or college or at work? If so who will look after the dog?? its not easy even when you love them, and you cant expect your mum to do it if shes not into the whole dog thing. Might be woth waiting a while until you are ina better situation maybe?
she is coming round to the idea, i am at college and working part time. i will be the one looking after the dog and funding it i am capable and we are in the perfect situation with lots of land an most of my free time is taken up doing things where the dog would be useful and used.
thanks for your concern but its fine, i have a space to put the kenel/run but just want to know of idea on how to make it, and sizes etc
a small lurcher would ideal mate if there are holes that a dog should not enter then dont get a terrier a wippetxcollie or bedyxwhip bottle brain in a small cute mother friendly package. i turned up with a colliexgrey red merle 1 day [BANNED TEXT] i was young my 1st lurcher the secret is get a cute pup if you want to get on mums side, and house train the little bugger asap if indoors.
