we have two dogs, and a bird who live at our house. i want to rescue a dog from the animal shelter, but everyone says two is enough. Our house is comfortable enough for three for sure! What do you think?

As many as you can afford. By afford, I mean feed, provide vet care, and spend time with.

I think if you are committed to making it work and wait to find a dog that fits with your lifestyle and family then 3 dogs is not too much.

It sounds like you are willing and able so if you can manage it why not. I have many more than 3 dogs and I know plenty of other people who have 4 and 5 dogs or more. And cats besides. They are all happy and well cared for.
