You've had him a week and think he's a sweetie. By the time you contact a rescue group and have some discussion with them, you'll have had him another week -- or two or three. That ought to help you make up your mind whether he'll fit into your family or not. IMO living with a family like yours automatically provides some of the mental and social stimulation that people like me (older, retired) have to work at providing.

The biggest consideration for you and your husband is can you supervise him with your children, particularly the youngest two, sufficiently. That means kids are ALWAYS under someone's watchful eye when with the dog. That would be true if he was a Chihuahua.

If you do keep him, give serious consideration to at least a basic dog health insurance policy. I didn't used to believe that, but vet bills are escalating like everything else these days -- or maybe more accurately more than everything else.
