  • Labs are great, but the first few years they are very hiper. They require a lot of exercise or a nice place to run. Good luck and have fun!

  • Head down to your local shelter and see if you and your family make a connection with any of the dogs down there!

  • Go to a shelter or try petfinder.com or Craigslist.org. Good luck and happy puppy hunting! My mom has a German Sheppard/Australian sheep dog/Burmese mountain dog. he is such a cute dog, very well behaved.

  • I have 2 rescue pitbull/lab mixes and they are 5 and still very hyper...you need to have a lot of enery and time to devote to that breed. Labs are great family dogs tho. Go to the shelter and see if one "adopts you". Good luck. You will find a lot of puppies at the shelter also and purebreds.

  • I have Rotties and they are great dogs. Loyal and great with my 4 year old, I actually have a new puppies now. I love them cause people think that they are an aggressive dog but they actually really BIG teddy bears.
