Well if you guys still remember the topic I did months ago "can't choose a breed" Well I'm still unshure on what dog to get,it has to be small or medium so the breeds I'm isterested are: Beagle, english cocker, shar pei and pug I like peis a lot, but since they are so predisposed to many health and behavor problems I'm putting down on the list. So I'm more interested in english cockers and beagles right now. Well here it goes my info, I treid to get it better this time. 25 years old girl, with cardiac problems, so even if I whant I can't do many exersice, I'm planning to start to walk the dog for 20 minutes the first monts and try to add 10 or 15 minutues later. Playing frisbee and feth daily The dog is goin to be inside the house and in the yard, the temperature of my country is a tropical one, I did a typo in the past post, is up to 35c the hottest days (and not 25 XD) Beacuse of my heart problems some days I feel bad, wit low or high blood pressure, in those type of days, I'm not capleble of walking the dog. When I go out from the house, is like 3 hours sometimes more, rarely is all day, but sometimes I go in vacations to mexico or usa (once in a year) The dog most be easy to a normal level training, but more important than that THE DOG NEEDS TO BE CALMED, NOT NERVIOUS OR HAVING ANXITY PROBLEMS, We had a GSD/ malinois mix that died of an old age, a boxer who was stolen from us >-<, a pit bull that we sent to the farm of my dad because of the pitt bull banning in our city. and a mutt but one of my half brothers needed a guardian dog do he taken him to his home (dog is death now) I planning on getting a show dog (but a pet one will do fine too) Note that since this is a 3rd world country the dog shows are in diapers, the resposable breedes are SO few (some show dogs are from a pet shop :yikes: ) Image like 4 show per year and 3 to 5 dog breeds per group , 2 -4 dogs per breed practicle no one do health test, or have a long day guaranty and besides not all the vets are capeble to do a good health test, since we don't have a vet school and they nowlashe is not up to date, A vet recomeded me to do a blood test gen I get the puppy, to see if anything is fine also whant to do displashia and patella exams but not shure if the displashia exams here are ofa certificaded. So tell me more about this breeds, experience wit them, links to sites... even recomed other breeds, opcorn: but remenber it has to be small or medium and some breeds are imposible to find (some are easy but super hard to find pure breed like poodles) *edit* fogot to add, even if I I will glad to get a dog from a shelther, we don't have of any type, only street dogs, and most of them have serius health or agrettion prroblems, a small number even have eated human corpses O-o so is too risky for me catching one.
