I live in a 5th floor flat in Korea and my boyfriend and I want to have a puppy. We had an English cocker spaniel but had to return him because I broke my foot and couldn't look after him. He wasn't the best kind of dog for a flat really because he was too big and energetic. Well the energetic part would've been ok if he'd been as big as a mouse but that's besides the point! Anyway, we'd like advice on getting the right breed in the future. Which dogs do you think are most suitable for high rise city living? Most Koreans have maltese and tshi zus (spelling?) My boyfriend isn't keen on tshi zus because he prefers dogs with longer faces. He likes young yorkshire terriers but doesn't like the way their hair grows long when they grow up. Over here people tie their hair up in little bows etc. . I told him I was sure that it is possible to keep their hair trimmed so they don't look so girly. Basically I have very little experience of dogs but I'll be the one spending the most time with it. The spaniel was frustrating because he had to be tied up when I was doing housework. He also kept clamping his jaw on my trousers and refusing to let go. Are there any breeds that wouldn't behave like that or is it a puppy trait? As I say I do like dogs but as a total beginner I need the most non challenging one you can think of. Teacups are getting popular here but I've heard they can be quite unhealthy. My grandmother had a Chiuhuahua. What are they like? Again my boyfriend's not keen. I think in his heart of hearts he'd prefer to live in a large house and have a golden retriever.
