Sorry I've probably annoyed most of you with my tonnes of threads about a new pup to join the family! But this will be the last one! ..promise! ..until next time anyway. So looking into loads of breeds at the moment but I just can't decide. I've decided I'm getting a Dane, but that might be slightly large at the moment so I'm going to wait until I move out (quite a few years) but I'd also like a small/medium breed to do agility with. not competitive just for fun. But I've got sooooo many breeds on my list I'm just not sure So I will tell you a little about myself/lifestyle and maybe you could suggest some breeds and answer the questions about them? thanks so much, you lot are stars! Our family live an active lifestyle currently with 4 friendly dogs, so our new dog would have to be a sociable breed-not known for dog aggression we live right in the middle of the countywide with plenty of walks near. I enjoy walking and could offer the dog 2 walks a day lasting two hours each and would be able to provide loads of mental stimulation through out the day with plenty of games. on the weekend the walks would be longer and exploring new places. -woods,fields,beach,forests,visiting family etc etc.. I'd also love to be able to take the dog cycling, and have the dog run alongside me (not for long periods of time and obviously only once dogs are old enough!) so the dog would have to be a breed that could have stamina for long walks and quick bike rides. So any ideas on a breed for me? . No very large breeds please, because I'm getting my Dane in the future and want a small/medium dog currently. (although if you have an idea of a large breed that might suit, please suggest) Soo..questions.. 1) is the breed you think suitable sociable with other dogs? 2) is the breed chosen able to go on long walks and short bike rides without getting over tired? 3) would the breed get along with cats if brought up with them? (I have 4) 4) is the breed a generally healthy breed? No major health issues common? If you've got this far, thanks sooo much for reading! suggestions welcomed and appreciated. thanks everyone for the help, helpfully soon I will have found my breed.
