    I have a new assistant at work (YEAH!!!)
    Problem is she's getting a puppy. Back yard breeder/friend of hers. Puppy are Mastiff/American Eskimo/BC and she says "a tiny bit wolf, but it's like 15 generations back" Anyway.. fine, spend $500 on a MUTT. Supposedly her mother is a dog trainer. From what she says, I'm not impressed with their 'training' But, whatever.
    Bigger problem. She is trying to talk our Compliance Manager into getting a puppy.
    Both him & his GF work full time, they rent, they have a 5 month old son, he has never had a puppy before and has limited dog experience.
    Any time they talk dog, I mention adopting an adult dog, or getting a shelter puppy but she's about got him convinced to get one of these mutts.

    I'm considering sending him an email telling him that I don't think it's a good idea...for the above mentioned reasons. And that if he really does want a puppy, a shelter puppy is a much more affordable way to go. It'll be chipped, altered & all age appropriate shots.
    Or, I can just ignore it and silently cringe when they talk puppy.

    I wouldn't email him. I think you can try talking to him face to face and give your input. After that, it's up to him to decide what to do.

    Problem is, he is in CA this week for training, and the puppy owner wants to give him the contract when he gets back.
    So, I won't have a chance to talk to him.
    I'm hoping his GF can talk him out of it. She is okay with the dog idea, but wants a smaller dog.

    Email him that you want to discuss the situation with him when he gets back before he does anything.

    Good news!
    He came back to work today and I asked if he was really getting a puppy. Then I said that $500 was a lot of a mutt, and told him what I paid for my shelter puppies, that came already micro-chipped, altered and all age-related vaccines.
    He had NO idea and has decided NOT to get the puppy and is going to look at shelters instead.
