Hi there everyone! I'm a long time lurker but this is my first post ever. Thought it was time I made myself an account.
I've lived with dogs and cats my entire life. However, I have never had a pet that I could call my own, they were always my mother's babies.
This is actually my first time living without an animal in the home, and it is so lonely! I had no idea how much I would miss the critters! So the past 1-2 years i've been doing a lot of research on dog breeds and what may be the best for my husband and I.
That is when I came across this site and I have to say I have learned so much from the members of this forum. I guess I came on to thank you guys!
We still do not have any pets, but that is ok. We are waiting for the right time and the right dog. :)
Thank you, lpn. We've considered getting a pound puppy, which will more than likely be a mutt. If I were to choose I would say my favourites are Papillons, Corgis, Grey Hounds and Shiba Inus. I know, kind of a strange mix.
Right now my husband and I are in an apartment, so a smaller breed with a medium energy level would probably be best.
