I have a crazy golden retriever who plays really well with other big dogs, I haven't really seen her with small dogs or cats. I would eventually (like in a year not now!) like to get another dog for her to play with. I've always wanted to get a smaller dog, my favorite breeds are shelties and toy yorkies. Do big dogs accept little dogs just as they would a big dog? I guess my concern is that our golden would play too rough and hurt a toy yorkie. If they are properly introduced would this situation work? Just curious really, we have to move across the country and finish getting our golden trained before we'd even seriously think about getting another dog. Thanks!
When you decide to get one, take your dog with you. If from a shelter, if you pick one use neutral ground to introducethem, and see how they get along. Bring the whole family as well cause everyone needs an input in a new family member. My doggy day CARE has big and small dogs, so the big ones love to play together and the small ones play together. Sometimes they all try playing together...lol Good luck on your quest!
