I have really mixed feelings about it right now, and I'm not quite sure what to think.
On the one hand, if I were to go out looking for a dog, the one they got is as good as I can imagine. She's about six months old, from the Humane Society, supposedly a stray. She's some kind of African breed, though at least a little mixed, and according to them, she should bark very little, if at all (we haven't heard her bark once, yet). She's extremely friendly, and I can't find any fault with her.
However, it's really weird, and almost uncomfortable seeing her. I have no doubt that I'll grow to love her, but I think I would have preferred waiting a little while longer before getting another dog.
UPDATE: For those wondering at the repeated references to "the dog" above, that's because we haven't yet named the puppy. If you have a suggestion, feel free to pass it along. We'll prolly get her named in the next day or so.
