Just to tell people here, I am a native speaker, and this isn't the natural form what we say. It is right, but it is not natural. We say it like this.

우리는 [something] [a number that you have] [unit]밖에 없습니다. It would be like this in English: We don't have that many dogs except one. Awkward, isn't it? Well, just like the grammar and sentences out there. Not tellin' to change it, but just sayin' for people who wanna be more Korean-ish.

That's not something achieved by simply saying a sentence differently, but by learning more words and constructs and tons of practice speaking (and speaking to other people!)

Is it not 한 마리 밖에 없습니다? I get those mixed up.

Those are two ways to say the same thing.

I'd say yours might emphasize a little bit more there is no other dog but that one.

I wrote: "우리는 개 한 마리만 있어요." and unfortunately it is wrong. Why is that?

Is: 우리는 개 한 마리만이 있어요 correct too? Haven't tested it.

우리는 개 한 마리만이 있어요. I put the particle 이. Optional or in fact incorrect? Thanks
