OK,,everyone knows she made a HUGE booboo on the list, but is that really the main concern? I thought the OP was looking for a med size dog, not too energetic, and short hair,,right? Ok, then lets help with that and not criticize the "list". I have large dogs (Pit Bulls and Rotties), but a medium size dog that is great with kids is an Australian Shepard (yes, yes, I know,,,,very energetic) but GREAT with kids. Another could be a Basset Hound, not too much energy, and good with kids, and short hair. Anyone have any other ideas. I am drawing a blank.
well i have a cockapoo half cocker spanial half poodle they are medium hight love to be with the family would rather be will you then their food they are non shedding non allergetic um not energetic the only problem is if you live in a dry place they get very itchy dry ears other then that they are very good dogs
Ok, I would suggest that the OP go to the library or use the internet and do major research on different breeds or go to a Pet store like PetSmart or petco where there are books on different breeds along with pictures and see what matches with what they are looking for. Make a list of what you want in a dog, ie: weight, long or short hair, high maintenance or not, color (if that is a concern), good with kids or not, everything you can think of that you want in the dog then go and research, research and do more research. By taking the time now, before buying, you will be more apt to pick the correct breed/mix for you and your family and have many, many enjoyable yrs. together. Don't buy on a whim, just because the pup is cute or available because in the long run it may be a wrong choice. Good luck and have fun researching, if you have kids get them involoved too in choosing the breed. Once you make the purchase it is a lifetime commitment and you want it to be enjoyable for everyone, even the dog!
