Jennifer has one of my older rescues and I have Teddy who is about 10. He is the greatest and he seems to be soooooo thankful to have a home. I agree that the hardest part is not going to be having him long enough BUT giving an older dog a good home is a wonderful thing. I have pups once in awhile and mine have done fine:)
As for not getting along with children even though you didn't ask Wiley was scared to death of them but wasn't mean so it may be more of a scared thing and not knowing or never been socialized with kids.
Hope you consider her as she will give you tons of love back!
