Hey guys my names Chris im 15 and I live in So Cal (really hot here right now). My parents and I just bought a new house and I think it's time for me to get a puppy . I had a little dog owning experience. I want a small family dog (nothing Golden Retriever sized) that will be my companion for the rest of his/her's life, something that will lay on my lap while I watch TV. I don't mind a dog you have to walk or run with alot cause I enjoy that. I don't want something independent and tends to run away alot. Any suggestions? Are Beagles or Pugs any good?
