    getting a dog.

    anyone have any suggestions? here's the criteria. there's a 3 year old in the house, it has to be small, and well, shouldn't be overly energetic.

    i was looking into getting a schipperke, however, i can't find any locally. everyone around here likes pitbulls n big ass dogs... which i LOVE too, and had to get rid of diamond (sadness goes here... i miss her so much) but we can't have a dog like her here. but i digress.

    suggestions?

    also look for a breed that has little or no history of any problems.

    i.e. dacshaunds tend to have back problem, chihuahuas have eye problems. make sure you do your research well cause its not fair to buy the dog only to give away down the road

    if you want a dog that is small, yet acts like a large dog, I suggest a pembroke welsch corgi, I'll post some pictures of mine when I get home.

    I've got two of them one is a female the other male

    Minnie she's 2 years old now full grown about 26Lbs, and proably stands about 12-15" from the ground to her back, great with children, been around my nephew since he was born. she's really smart knows all my tricks to get her to come inside as she loves just laying out in the lawn and 2 feet of snow. Loves car rides, needs to be kept on leash at all times as she was trained one if not she like to wander and explore. She's playful if you want her to be and just chills out as well. I tough her in to nights not to chase the 3 cats we have.

    Mason the male is about 5-6 months old, still needs to be trained a little better. very laid back, shy, stays right next to you off leash, learns very quickly, seems to be fine around youngins'

    that's my .03
    very similar

    My daughter and my sausage dog get along really well. Granted that the lil weiner is a bit energetic but otherwise they both get along well in a 2 bedroom downtown apartment.

    Best of all, the dog is litter trained. No shit. Litter trained.

    Jack Russell Terrier.

    They have to be trained VERY well practically from birth otherwise they are generally disobedient and crazy.

    dont get a small dog. they are annoying as hell and all they do is fucking yap all the damn time. if you want a dog thats going to be good with kids, get a labrador or a golden retriever. either type of dog is kid friendly.

    nomination for the worst suggestion EVER in the history of the whole universe...

    those things are complete time bombs, ever if they are trained...
    you pet it the wrong way and it'll lock onto your wrist...
    i had one that went ape shit over a ball, put the ball away and the fucker locked onto my wrist, just dangling there swinging around... i was about to stab it with a bowie knife when the fucker ran under the bed, then i got the 12gauge but my old man wasn't having a hole in his house...

    little fuckers, kill em all

    on a serious note, small dogs...
    my boss has to little scottys and they are pretty chill, one was a rescue so if you touch her food she'll get all nasty, but she doesn't bite or anything

    the newest addition to my office life is my bosses Bijon Frise, i personally don;t like any of them cause they make noise and piss on my tires, but the bijon has hair instead of fur, they are hypoallergenic and they say a good way to give your kids allergies is to expose them to the allergin, but these are completely allergy free for the kiddies, he's not mean or anything,a little noisy but otherwise just a regular dog
