I’m looking to get a dog. I need recommendations on breed. I’m 56 years old, retired and live in a smaller log cabin with my wife. She still works. The dog will spend most of her time with me. I am an avid fisherman so she will go on boat often. I also hunt deer so I thought of a possible blood trailer however that is not a must. I have had in the past outdoor only dogs before moving here. I’ve had shepherds, malamutes, and last was a chocolate lab. I love the looks of hounds such as fox hound, blue tick hound and German shorthair pointers. I also still love the labs I am not wanting a lot of hair shedding in the cabin although does have wood floors throughout. I also travel 9 hours often to see kids and grandkids so this dog will need to travel. I never had indoor dogs or travel dogs and want to keep things clean. I know this sounds picky but Oman old farm boy raised where dogs ran free outside but I really miss having a dog partner especially fishing I don’t like little foo foo dogs. Question. Is there anyone out there reading this that has a similar situation with a median size dog. Thank you for your time in response.
