okay, so it won't be for a few years. But I've started thiking about it, because i might move out in less than 3 years, or maybe not for 6. Well, I started looking at breeds anyway, eventhough I'll be getting a dog from a shelter, I'd like to have an idea. I'll probably be in a house with medium sized yard. I'll still have Buzzy and they will get 1-3 walks a day and a few good runs off leash every week. Chances are I'll still be in uni and would need to put the effort into study so I won't be looking for a hugley active breed. Must be cat safe, as I'll also have Panda. Trainable and dog friendly (i know those are about individual dogs but would probably avoid breeds that are known for not being cat/dog friendly just to make it easier) shedding is not really an issue but I don't want to be vacuuming 20 times a week, Buster sheds a lot as it is so it doesn't really worry me as for grooming, i don't mind having to brush them through every week. size wise, I prefer medium to large dogs, ACD size and up. For a few months I've been looking up Greyhound and have been leading towards them, also looked up GSD's becuase they are just every where in shelters. But not sure on their energy level. I like Huskies but I can see they would probably need a lot more stimulation than I'd be able to offer at the time. I've also looked into Bull Terriers as I've always liked them and in the last 2 weeks I've seen 2 purebreds on shelter sites The dog would still get plenty of attention, quality food, obediance training and perhaps become a therapy dog. I would love another working breed but want to save that till I have the time to put the effort into it for agility, flyball, obediance and herding. I'm also going to adopt an older dog, probably female and 6 years+ as i want to skip the puppy faze and not have to deal with chewing, teething, socialisation etc. Looking for a few more breeds I can start researching.
