some background. I have always grown up around dogs, mainly smaller dogs. I bought a new house several months ago and i live alone.
Im looking for something smaller then the big dogs (rot, shep, etc) and something bigger then the tiny tiny dogs, (pug, chiwawa, etc). I do alot of offroading and camping, and would like to find a dog i can take with me on all of my trips.
I recommend a chinese shar pei. They are my husbands favorite kind of dog and he loves the outdoors. They get to be around 50 lbs and they are very loyal and playful. I'm a little biased because we raise some but they really are great. Here's a pic.
Hi Miniature Schnauzers are wonderful love to go camping and love to play outdoors, they are non shedders and not vocal although they are great at letting you know someone is coming to the door, they are lovers not fighters but will proctect their owners in all ways they can.
I have 2 shiba inu, 11 and 13, and they are the most fantastic dogs. however if you want a companion to travel with i would suggest a french bulldog. the shiba will chase the rabbit or squirrel and you will have a nice long hike , while the frenchie will sit and smile and say "hey, what's up?"
