I will warn you: be prepared to make major adjustments if they aren't accepting - some dogs are not able to cope and you might need to decide whether they need to have professional obedience training, become outdoor dogs or even find a new home without children.
Thanks!! My older dog is good with kids so I'm hoping she will adjust well. The younger one is still a puppy (6 months) and is very well behaved. I'm hoping I won't have to make any hard choices!
I will ask my humane society, but I doubt they will have anything.
