  • We've been pleased with both shelter dogs and rescue dogs. Read up on like the above poster suggested, then look into a shelter, breed rescue, or the humane society to help you find a dog that will fit your lifestyle. Good luck!

  • Go to the shelter. They have all sorts of varities of dogs. It's also more economical since the adopted dogs usually come with shots, microchip, spay/neuter, and sometimes even a free bag a food! On top of all that you get to give a homeless dog a second lease on a good life. In return you'll have a loyal lifelong friend. WHAT A BARGAIN!

  • Go to your local shelter and save a life, they got a lot of animals there that are otherwise euthanized if someone doesn't adopt.

  • On they used to have a questionaire that you told them if you had kids, what kind of yard, how much time to groom, and then they gave you a list of like 20 dogs to choose from. Check it out!

  • Cavalier Spaniel or a Shih tzu (be sure not to confuse with lhasa apso. Two completely different breeds with some physical similarities.)

  • It really it doesn't matter what kind of dog you get as long as you make the commitment to walk it and get it the exercise it needs daily.

  • A yorkie? We have a coton de tulear. We love him. He's small and hypo allergenic. Pretty easy to train, but a little wild. That may be our particular dog, though.

  • Don't go for the yorkie, these are the most arrogant dogs I have ever seen, and I have had many a dogs, and I also own a yorkie, not by preference but because someone gave it to me as a gift.
