I have a few ideas, but I figured I'd see what y'all come up with Some things I look for/can think of, feel free to ask questions! *Fur/Grooming: Not a fan of hairless dogs, at all. As long as there is fur, I'm good. I don't mind grooming, but would prefer to stay away from excessive grooming needs at this time. As long as any "professional" grooming only needed to be done every month or two, it's fine. Fine with brushing out. Not a fan of bearded breeds. *Relatively healthy. Good life expectancy. *Energy. I want it. I need a dog that will force me to get out daily and do something. Plan to do sports with the dog, along with doing plenty of hiking and swimming. *Not known for DA. Doesn't have to like other dogs, but needs to be able to exist and focus around other dogs. *I like biddable, and would like to do obedience/rally with the dog. Blind obedience is not a necessity, however. *Size... Rosey was a little under 24" and around 50lbs in her prime. I think I'd like around there or a little smaller, but could go bigger for the right breed. Would prefer between 10-45lbs, ideally, for this go round. *Don't mind barking, don't mind talking, don't mind screaming. *Doesn't need to be protective, don't mind being aloof to strangers.
