So there is a *chance* TJ and I might be moving to South Florida (near Lake Okeechobee) once he gets his taxes back. We plan on getting a dog. Right now I am stuck on Aussies, Pitties, and still looking into a couple of other breeds, but the first 2 listed are our main ones. I know it can get pretty hot all over the US, but I know Florida can be pretty hot all year round. -How do you feel about long haired breeds in hotter climates? -And those that live in Florida, what breeds do you have and do you own these breeds partially because Florida is hot? Any other info would be greatly appreciated.
