Although I don't have an exact date yet, in the near future I am moving in with my boyfriend. Currently, I am living with my dad and my brother. I want to take my 3 year old dog with me, however I am unsure how this will affect him and I want to make the best decision for him.
When I first adopted him, we lived in another state for almost a year. He was abused by his previous owner and has shown signs of separation anxiety when I leave, even for work, and a general fear of men. When we moved in with my dad and brother, there were three other dogs here that he has become friends with. My dog gets along and kind of likes my dad and brother, however I am still his favorite and my dad tells me that he seems lost when I am gone. My boyfriend loves him (and my dog likes him as well) and the place we would be living accept pets so he is more than welcome and also my dad and brother would be more than happy to keep him as well if he didn't come. Both options would be financially stable and would be able to provide everything he needs and more.
I just want to make the best decision for him and I don't want my opinion of what I want to get in the way of what's best for him, so I would love an outside opinion? Thanks in advance!
