Actually I went and read the posts on the rott forum, I believe you received some excellent advice from them on how to manage your girl, some of which you elected not to do and unless that forum deletes posts, I didn't see anything but support given to you when you reported having to send Isis to the bridge. As for whether to add another dog into the mix, it seems like your golden needs some one on one time with her humans having had to endure living with an unstable dog for 4 years. That being said, we can only offer recommendations based on the info provided--you and your husband are the best judge of whether (and when) to open your home to another pup. Having gone from 3 to 1 dogs in a relatively short amount of time, I can imagine how unbearably quiet the house must seem now. Good luck with your decision & if you do decide to pursue a pup, please thoroughly research the breeders ensuring they're following at minimum the respective breed clubs code of ethics for breeding.
