Hey guys I've been a dog owner all my life but after my last boy died I stopped because I have a disability that has slowly gotten worse and I felt and feel currently that I cannot walk regularly enough to keep a dog happy. However I'm (after years of trying) finally getting somewhere with my weight issue and this will help my jionts and muscular problems so I'm thinking about a small dog in the future. I have always owned medium and large dogs though I do have some experience with a few terriers, as my best friend has always owned them. I've had collies and GSDs and crosses of them hehe I'm thinking about looking to rescue a small dog...one that does not need heaps of walking, I'll manage a couple of short to medium walks a day on a good day. I also cannot have a breed that typically hates to be left alone as sometimes the dog will be on it's own for an hour or so at a time during the day if I'm away at the festival I go to each year etc..there will be another long time dog owner in the house as I'm living at home again at the moment for some care but they work on and off in the day. I'll probably look at cross breeds but who knows what the shelters have, especially after the recession. I'm planning on adding a fence pannel to the side of my house as it is open there at the moment and securing our gate that would be easy for a smaller dog to get through. I have a small garden. Any tips, advice or suggestions are welcomed.
