Hi all. I have had dogs my whole life. Our last dog just passed away 3 moths ago it was sudden, and very hard to cope with. We mourned for a few months, and the kids have been hinting at the idea of another dog. I have 2 sons. Ages 12 and 7. My older son is more mellow, like the cuddle up with your dog type of kid. The 7 yr old is the play fetch and wrestle around with your dog type I kid. So I need a breed that would fall under both categories. We were thinking of a different breed we never had before. Breeds we've had are beagle/Bassett mix. Jack Russell, Rottweiler, sharpei, beagle mutt (not sure what he was mixed with). I don't want to start controversy, but Pitts are out of the question. I was attacked as a child and I am terrified of them. I know not all Pitts are violent, but I can't be near one without hyperventilating. So I'm not trying to start anything, it's just a psychological issue with me and Pitts. Anyway. We have a backyard, not huge, but not tiny, we live in a house but one apartment of the house. 2 bedrooms but large living area. So what are your thoughts??
