Okay so the dog must:
Be good with kids, be good with other dogs (smaller dogs), not be too hard to handle so in otherwords trainable or for the most part easy to train. Able to live inside but would have access to a small fenced in backyard. We are a young couple with poodle and a terrier mix (she is a Jack Russell Terrier mix)
We have been tossing around these breeds American Bull dog, Golden Retriever, Siberian Husky, Papillon, Cavalier King Charles spaniel, Shetland Sheepdog, Austrailan Cattle Dog (Blue Heeler), Beagle
We havent done much research yet but we are going to….those are just a few breeds we like.
We do not want: American Pit Bull Terrier, Rottie, Dobie, Great Dane, Saint bernard, (Or any Giant breed the only live about 8 years), we don’t want a Min pin, Chihuahua (though I love chis), or anything with the squished face ex. pug, french bulldog. And no shih tzus or lhasa apso. We already have a poodle and don’t want another poodle at this time.
Also keep in mind there is heavy BSL in the surrounding areas and our county is trying hard to fight it off so (pit bulls and rotties are out)
