    I really want to get a pup in the near future. I really like king Charles spaniel, it's such a cool dog. But what else is out there? And any tips on owning a dog in a apartment or in general?

    lab/bulldog mix..and he's my little buddy ^.^

    I would suggest a smaller dog if you're living in an apartment. Not enough space for them to run around and exercise. I know this personally...I have to take Early to my bf's mom's house 35-40 miles away twice a week so he can run free and exercise and tire himself out.

    Get a rescue dog. Mutts are smarter and friendlier. Pick one that likes you and you'll have a new best friend.

    The perfect lap dog:

    Standard poodles are perfect for people with dog allergies who want big athletic dogs but don't want shed hair all over their house and on their clothes. The downside - expensive grooming and frequent brushing to maintain their coats, and some really bad PR as sissy dogs - have you ever seen a TV commercial with one where they weren't made fun of? That's because of the ribbons and poufy haircuts, but both served a historic purpose - bred as retrievers, the ribbons identified which dog belonged to which hunter and the haircuts were designed to protect their vital organs while keeping their limbs free to tread water in icy ponds while retrieving fowl. Fact is, they're second only to border collies as the smartest breed, and both of mine are alphas at whatever dog run they're in, outracing positively every other breed there.

    Why thank you! They're vintage seersucker. Not from some thrift shop but my own closet. Yes, I'm that old.

    Thanks for the interesting facts, but I don't think I can be friends with a poodle icon_biggrin.gif Plus he's too big to keep in an apart

    We have a few parks. Only 1 is dog-friendly and even then...my dog needs more room to run around than what a leash will provide.

    Cerberus.


    No actually my family has three. A border collie, a catahoula leopard dog, and a chocolate lab.

    Tina is the border collie, Bella is the catahoula leopard dog, and Hailey is the chocolate lab.

    Tina is my favorite, followed by Hailey, Bella is not very loyal.

    Doberman Pinscher - among the smartest, loyal, short-hair - minimum shedding.

    Schnauzer, and she is awesome!

    consider a small medium to small dog, depending on the amount of room you will have. Some apartment complexes do not allow large breed dogs and they will do an evaluation on the pet to see if they are not aggressive.

    I have two little ones still, but my first and favorite real dog, who was my childhood dog, was just in a box on vacation and we kept her so she was just a mutt. But I really want either a boxer or some kind of boxer mix for my next dog

    I have a black and red Affenpinscher , my maternal grand-parents were Affenpinscher breeders .and as long as i remember we always had one running around the house . They are smart , spunky and full of life , they also are easy to train and pretty sturdy for a small breed . They are pretty rare in the U.S , but more numerous in Australia or Europe .

    Hes the best!!!...a beagle named Bongo...they are so loyal!!!...they are bit imperactive tho...so if u need some space for him to run around....i do think you can keep it in a apartment...but make sure to get him out at least 5 days a week!!!...

    Only one dog right now - but he's a great one. He's a Chow/Shiba Inu rescue dog. I got Walter three years ago. Is there any kind of dog more loyal and grateful than a rescue dog?
