I am trying to convince the new hubbie that we need a puppy. I know everyone is biased toward their own pooch breed, but help me out...
Here's what I am looking for:
*A midsize dog, one that can be a comfortable lap dog but I can also take out on a walk without the fear of it being eaten by large squirrels. Maybe between 20-40 pounds (??)
*An indoor dog for an average size house. We have a large fenced in back yard for lots of exercise
*One that is good with children
*One that is fairly trainable / obediant.
*Somewhat energetic - not lazy not hyper
*Don't want a super shedder - not super short hair, not long hair
*Not big on schnauzers (no offense to anyone that has one)
I think thats about it. Any suggestions?
I wanted a dalmation and call it Chief (Chad's a fulltime prof. firefighter), but thought that would be too much a cliche Plus, I heard they are kind of hyper and not the best around kids. I do like Brittany Spaniels, so they may be an option.
