I've been researching dog breeds for over a year now. I still can't find a good breed! Maybe someone can help me? Let me explain my situation. In about a year or so, my mom and I will be opening a pet store on the east coast. We have a plan to change pet stores, or at least let people know there are good pet stores out there. We want a guard dog for the store.... but.... it needs to be good with strangers, children and other animals (dogs, cats, rodents, birds, all animals). Absolutely do not want a German Shepard. Just today I found a breed that pretty much fits our requirements, but I can find little information on it and no breeders. It's the Appenzell Mountain Dog. Does anyone know any information on this dog? Or maybe recommend a dog breed? Any help is greatly appreciated!
