I'm a loving dog owner myself, so would treat your animal just as I would my own! My dog, Oliver, is a little over 5 years old and is a combination of playful and lazy. He would love a buddy but also is OK with 25 naps a day :) he is not aggressive at all so no worries there. I'm usually available and in town most weeks, I usually work from home 1-2 days a week while spending the rest of my work life in Arlington, Va. My dog gets a walk in the morning, fed and then when I go to work his max is about 10 hours but I rarely leave him that long. We usually do a quick potty break when I get home and it's usually up to him if we go back out again later in the evening. Sometimes it's tough to get him up so we skip it but open to other schedules of course depending on your animals needs. We have lots of toys scattered about that will be first come first served as well :). My apartment is a few steps down from the street but then it's one level.
If your doggy isn't potty-trained, unfortunately I won't be able to watch them :(
Anyway, let me know if you have any more questions!
