I have a lab and were going to get another tell me what dog and why.
Clay, there are lots of things to consider when you get a dog.
You have to figure out how much time you have to spend with a dog. Do you want to deal with all the stuff that comes along with the cuteness of a puppy, or would you rather start with a dog that's adult or almost adult?
Have you considered going to a local animal shelter and adopting a dog?
How much room would a dog have to exercise in at your home? Is your yard large or small? Is it fenced in?
What kind of dogs do you like? Large dogs? Small dogs? Medium dogs?
Here's a good website to check out and read about different breeds: http://www.dog-breeds.net/Dog_Breeds_Directory.htm
Figure out answers to these questions and get back to us to give us some idea of what you think you might like; there are lots of people here who will be glad to give you some first hand knowledge of dealing with a real variety of breeds.
