I can't remember if I've already done this before, but anywhooo. Some might know that my brother's been looking at getting an Aussie. But I'm just not sure that he'll be able to handle that much dog. We've contacted who knows how many breeders - either they aren't having litters anytime this spring or are show breeders. He doesn't really want to go the rescue route, but it's not totally out of the question if the right pup came along. Okay, on to the point.... He says goldens, labs or spaniels are "too original" for him. So those really aren't anything to suggest, even though I think he would do awesome with a well bred-golden. I need help with breed suggestions: -20+ pounds -Friendly with other dogs and people, strangers included. -Hair really doesn't matter, though he would like something with fur like Lizzie (long and straight). -Something preferably that isn't as high energy as a BC or Aussie. -Is ready to take on new things (he'd like to try Flyball) but content to just be lazy for a few hours.
