  • A dog. Family friendly dog. I prefer labs. Not only are they good family dogs but they also protect you home and family.

  • A beagle!!! I have three and I raise them! Thier temperment is good and gentle. They never bite and they love children of all ages. All this behavior is inbred. They r loyal dogs and playful. Message me and I'll tel u more. R u thinking about dogs??? Never get St. Bernard,pug,doberman,shepard,pitbull,orRottweiller. They r not good with kids. Plus beagles r not high maintenance dogs.

  • a small dog. but only if you're willing to handle most of the responsibility of having a pet. they're all still too young to be very much help, but all are old enough to enjoy it. =) i just hope it won't have any trouble with the cat!

    birds & parrots, mice & hamsters, rabbits, etc LOVE to bite in rough or inexperienced hands.

    but a fish tank could be fun!

  • Well all my life I have had an assortment of pets. My DD has had pets since she was very little. Right now we have a cat, and two dogs. . . but Guinea Pigs are very good pets, especially for younger kids, so are Hedgies (altho illegal in some states). Bunnies are good pets too. I agree with much of the above, family friendly dogs like beagles or labs. Definitely stay away from dogs like chow chow which tend to be a one person dog and can be aggressive towards others. GL I hope this helps. . .if you have questions about the pets I have mentioned feel free to ask. . . :)

  • We got a beagle/basset mix when my girl had just turned 3. We've had Boss for two and a half years now, and just got Poofy, a chihuahua mixed with something small a couple months ago. They are both great dogs. Poofy is just a puppy still, but has yet to even bark at Kyra, much less bite her.
