Hi all. Im a new member to this forum wanting some information on two particular breeds that we are interested in. We are considering getting another dog around christmas time, as my partner will away alot and I dont feel safe with only my foxy to protect me. (Although im sure he'd give anyone a run for their money if they tried to hurt me!) As I have mentioned, we already have a 4yr old male fox terrier who loves the company of other dogs. We also have a 1yr old son and another on the way! We own our own home with a large block, however we are in the market to buy a small farm for my horses. I prefer shorthaired dogs as I get asthma. I take my foxy for a run everyday at the local dog park, (which is more of a feild) where he chases rabbits to his hearts content. we also enjoy going to the river in summer time. I have always had a love for dobermans and would love to own one however I have heard that, though good with your own children, they are not tolerant of other peoples children. Also that they prefer to be on their own and are not really "other dog friendly". I also like GSP,I used to babysit a friends show dogs occassionally and found them very affectionate and good looking dogs. I'm just not sure on what breed is for me. Please help!!
