The GF and I both want a dog and have for the entire time we have been together, but have not because my old place would not permit dogs. (You could have 10 cats, but no dogs) Now we are permitted to get one medium size dog 25 pounds or so, but bigger is permitted with permission from developer whom is a dog lover. Of course we would want to get a puppy so we could train it, take it to obedience classes and raise it correctly. I have been looking at Irish Terriers because they are semi to fully hypoallergenic (I think that is the word) active, social, and the right size for our pet. Oh and they are great for crate training. Only downfall is the only breeder that I can find is about 11 hours from here in the middle of Missouri!
More so, I know that cyburbians are dog lovers... (well other than that Dan guy), so what suggestions do you have? Road Trip, find some other breed, go mixed breed, or other.
