ERecTile said:Great links Admiral! Thanks! MAL, do some more research as medium sized and don't shed too much aren't really enough to go on. I spent a year researching dogs and preparing my kids and analyzing our lifestyle before trimming my choices down to a Yorkie and Shih Tzu. I'd started my search for a husky and ended up with a teacup Yorkie...go figure!

I need a pet but I hate picking up dog poop. Think about it, who is really the master? The dog never picks up our steamy load but the dog craps and in we go with the plastic bag.
I would like to have her though...:biggrin2: Meanwhile, my brother's dog is a poodle...she can be very endearing but she barks alot. JUst crazy barking.MisterAsianLover said:I want a dog that is quiet as well. My wife is scared of dogs, so I need a dog that isn't too aggressive. The dog has to accept and like Asians. I was thinking of a poodle. But I worry poodles tend to bark too much.

Your jealousy over pet insurance has me concerned for the welfare of any animal in your care.

You should also research the temperaments of the various breeds so you get one that suits your household.
cristycurves said:Btw most people that are allergic to dogs are allergic to something in the urine, skin, saliva, it's not because they shed, ask a dermatological vet to explain, they'll explain it better than I So if you're allergic, you will be or could be to any breed, sorry to say.
