I don't know if we will be getting a new dog but my mom seems some what interested in looking so maybe we will! I was wondering what breeds you think would suit us (mostly mom though). Size would be anything from Yorkie sized to lab sized. She wants a small dog since she feels they are easier to travel with but really likes labs and dogs of that size too so we are not really sure on size, nothing giant though. Must be good with cats, tolerate dogs (though one does not live hear there is a visiting one), and be god with little kids( with supervision of course) since she is thinking ahead to when she will have grand kids. Exercise he would get would be a walk a day, more while he is younger since I will be home to do it but once I'm in College it will be one walk a day. Easily trained would be best for them nothing too independent either. Hair should be no longer than golden retriever (although she really likes Irish Setters, Do they need pro. grooming?) since she does not want to have a lot of noticeable hair around the house but does not mind some and does not want to have to have professional grooming. Basically she want an easy going dog. Ask more questions if I missed anything I hope we get a dog. We would Rescue but I'd like to see what major breed in the mix to look for or if we have any breed rescues to look there. You guys could also say what breeds to most definitely avoid.
