I'd love to hear people's opinions of and experiences with them. I like the idea of at least one smallish dog in the future, and while I like frenchies exercise tolerance and some of the health issues give me serious pause. DH wants a dog that is less "in your face" than a lab. I want a dog that is going to be dog friendly, a good walking/hiking buddy who also has an off switch, is not super likely to try to eat my birds, and can just be a go anywhere dog. I do know that beagles are not really to be trusted off least due to their sniffer, and I'm ok with that. I would like to dabble in agility as well. Any thoughts?
