i need to change my email address but i cant seem to find out how
Golden retriever would be excellent choice.Mine gets along excellent with anyone and any other animals,very well temperment,wouldnt bite anyone.The woman that gave her to me few years ago had an autistic son who would pull on the dog and yes even nip the dog,poor dog,the dog never did anything to this child.The woman that gave her to me,didnt want to vacuum her fur up all the time anymore,how sad for her,very lucky for me,good luck.PS: I've had a few dogs in my years,this girl of mine is the best of all breeds that I've ever had(temperment I mean).
I absolutely love Giant Schnauzers! I will own one someday no matter what I have to do to conform to the dog's needs. From my research, I can tell you that they are high energy and have a high prey drive. One rescue I looked into says right on their home page, "they will kill your cat." I'm not saying it can't work, but you should be prepared. Poodles are another of my favorite breeds. They are low allergy, come in three sizes, several colors and can be clipped just about any way you want. Dobies are awesome too, are often obedience champions and have been used as therapy dogs. I think w/ the retirement home, it's probably best to go w/ rescue. An older dog will be calmer. A puppy is always going to be higher in energy and need more work.
poodles are great dogs. i have a miniature poodle myself and he is the sweetest dog and listens very well. and rottweilers are awsome too. my aunt has a 1 yr old rottweiler and he is more calm and gentle then my aunts 3 yr old male labrador. rottweilers mature at an earlier age than labradors. well hoped i helped a little. good luck! :]
all animals always need a chance to have a place they can call home. ADOPT A TRUE FRIEND!
