Basically I am interesting in purchasing a pet dog and would like to hear about different breeds of dogs as I'm sure many of you own dogs.
Years ago I had a labrador retriever which unfortunately died when I was a small kid, then in my junior-high school years, a family friend moved overseas and left us these 2 little things, a black/grey/white Maltese x Shih Tzu and a white Maltese x something. My parents have another yellow labrador retriever now.
I wouldn't mind purchasing a breed of dog I've already kept in the past, but at the same time, I do kind of want a new breed.
I dislike little show dog things like yorkshire terriers, poodles etc
I don't want a bulldog, and I don't really have a lot of time to spend walking a dog so a very big, active dog is out of the question too.
I live in a house with a good sized backyard, so I'm not restricted as I would be if I lived in an apartment etc.
Any recommendations, opinions or pictures would be appreciated.
