|Entirely up to you! I'd go for a visit with Soph and see how she does first.
As for walks? That's easy peezy. I USUALLY walk my dogs separate - one at a time, unless someone comes with me and walks the other, or I have one on leash and the other off(in off leash areas only!) as this makes it MUCH easier. Totally recommend it. In fact, if you have any friends that enjoy walking too, that's always a great way to go. I set up 'walk dates' with my neighbor and her dog all the time and it gives me 'girl time' away from the guys and away from the house to just enjoy myself and relax.
Baby gates aren't a problem unless you have a dog that jumps them, bol. Trust me! Charlie can clear over four feet without touching a thing, so he often gets lazy and tackles baby gates and they just fall over after so many times of being hit or pawed when he hops over.
Would his disability be easy or difficult for you to work with? Is he good with other DOGS too? I've had five dogs in a household before. Three didn't get along. Or rather, two didn't get along with the other and vice versa, so rotation had to happen there or they would have killed one another. But.. I mean, if I made it work with FIVE DOGS... three being Rotties, one being a Mastiff and the other my Beagle... I'm sure you could do it with two, bol. And yes, I walked them all separately - or I walked my little guy with a one of the bigger 'good' walkers.
Another furry body underfoot isn't always a con!
All it really comes down to is.... Do you want him? And is your husband up for it too?
ETA - DANG YOU! I'm now browsing my Humane Society's adoptable listings online. Why must I torture myself?
