My boyfriend and I are moving in together in the near future. I'm bringing one of my dogs because she basically can't live without me, while the other one is probably staying home because my mom loves him. His dog is going to have to stay with his parents due to his mother's fragile state of mind currently. So, he wants a new dog.

My question is, how do I try to convince him to consider other breeds? He's just about insisting that he NEEDS the same kind of dog as his old one. He wants a springer spaniel, and nothing else. To be honest, he's really snobby about it, and I hate it. I've always been one to adopt dogs from everywhere. Animal humane, the side of the road, etc. A dog is a dog, in my opinion, and breed doesn't matter. Whenever he talks about the dog, he HAS to mention that it's a purebred springer.

Again.... How do I stop this ridiculous behavior, and make him understand that there are plenty of deserving dogs out there that could use a loving home... regardless of breed, and that we need to pick one that will fit our situation?
