I know I've posted a similar thread before but my wants regarding a dog have changed a little.
So I'm wanting to buy a puppy to join our little family. I'd prefer a medium to large sized dog. We have a small two bedroom cottage on 3/4 of an acre, which is fully fenced. I've done a complete turn around and would now like an inside/outside dog.
It would need to be fine with being left at home for up to ten hours a day, four days a week while I work. I would be leaving it outside in our yard during the day. I'm reasonably active and am happy/ looking forward to walking it everyday. During summer, we spend a lot of time at the beach,
I've also got chickens, so I need something that's not going to eat them. Therefore blue cattle dogs, etc are out.
My biggest worry with having a dog that comes inside, is I'm terrified of having dog hair everywhere! I also don't want a 'smelly dog' with that strong 'dog odour' like a labrador or a golden retriever. In my opinion, these dogs stink, no matter much you wash them.
So, does any breed loosely fit my wants?
