    If I was a mod, every regular poster in TH would be perma-banned. regular posters in P&R who don't post in other sub-forum would also be perma-banned.

    It's about that time of year that I would normally think about building some new features at the place rode dirt at. Only that won't happen this year, the place got plowed.

    I want a dog like this:

    1) medium sized: i hate the yappy little ones but they look cute. constant yapping would drive me mad and be an endless source of trouble.
    2) easy going
    3) affectionate and loyal
    4) cute
    5) non-aggressive.

    i was thinking labrador or golden retriever

    i like the look of dachshund but know nothing about them.

    hat other dogs fit my wish list.

    Give a weight range on "medium size". My dog was 30-35 lbs, and I considered her small-medium. But she was a good size in that she was small enough to pick up if needed and big enough to hold her own. Labs and Goldens are solidly large dogs in my book. They can even cross to xl. And male Goldens are much larger than females, so pick wisely.

    Avoid stubborn dogs.

    i'd still like an italian greyhound some day, but i don't have the time or the inclination to make the time to have one now.

    i'll stick with my cats that are fine with pooping in a box and can be left on their own for a few days at a time.

    Off the top of my head:
    1. Beagle
    2. English cocker spaniel- added grooming expense, but a lady killer type of dog
    3. Miniature schnauzer- added grooming expense
    4. Vizsla- a little bigger than med-sized, very high energy
    5. Bearded collie- very cute, added grooming expense + time to maintain coat
    6. Brittany spaniel- very high energy
    7. Mixed breed from a shelter or rescue. An already trained dog can be appealing.

    If you don't like yapping, most terriers are out- but otherwise I'd also say consider a border terrier

    Skip dachshunds- as much as I like them, they get expensive disc/spine problems with alarming frequency.

    Take your time and do your online research. There are tons of dog sites with breed specific information, you could start with the AKC site and compare with other sites.

    By the way, the concept "aggressive" is relative, situational, and personal. Rottweilers and G Shepherds have earned undeserved bad reputations for aggressiveness when actually it just boils down to a normally protective dog that's simply big enough to make an impact.

    Those yappy little Yorkies and Shihtzus are as aggressive as they come, yet too small to make an impact.

    If a Jack Russell was as big as a G Shepherd he would be illegal . . . he could eat Pit Bulls for lunch.

    And recently I read a survey that ranked the popular Dachshund as the most aggressive of all breeds. Rottweilers, Pit Bulls and G Shepherds were significantly down the list behind a bunch of small dogs.

    Just sayin'.

    IMO, much of it comes down to prey drive, and whether the dog is of a breed that is bred to hunt. Terriers and dachshunds are hunting dogs. Bird dogs are not. We had a Schipperke which is a little guard dog, and he would be fine around any other animals if you introduced them, but would challenge any people or animals that entered the property without his permission. He took on a Rotty at one point, and won out of disinterest on the Rots part.

    Wendy, the beagle/lab mix, was totally untrustworthy around small animals, and she was always kenneled or outside when the ferrets were out. Cats and a min-pin had negative encounters with her. Anything smaller and it was game on.

    Just be careful coasting, because a dog that is too stubborn or willful will take your bike, and make you ride the girl's bike.

    Having owned an Ittie, I would never do it again. YMMV.
