  • I like australian sheep herding dogs. They are sweet, small-mid sized and great for families. They'll keep your kids in the yard.... and in a small circle for that matter...

    I've never had one but I've been around them. I want one :)

  • Any dog is what you make it! People like to categorize and put them into classisfications that they shouldn't be a dog will only do what its owner trains it to do Some people would say a poodle or golden retriever maybe even a lab would be great if you have kids, I had a Rottweiler when my son was a baby - such a lovey girl she was and EXCELLENT with my son, we had to give her up due to moving but she was amazing..

  • We have a lab...and he's just awesome! Very sweet! They need to be exercised many times a day though. They just have so much energy. You can play outside with a ball for an hour and they're still ready to run a marathon. =)
