HI everyone. I have not posted for awhile. Just finished interning and now am done with school! Yay. Anyway, back to dog subject. In a year or so, maybe sooner we will be ready for another dog. I've always wanted to do visitation/therapy work at nursing homes and for people getting chemotherapy, etc. I think it would be nice to have a dog small enough to place on their laps, a "non-shedding" coat type, and a people-loving temperament. There is never a guarentee but what breeds would you recommend? I have thought of the maltese and have heard only good things about them, they are soo small though; I've never had a dog that small and worry about it getting hurt. I am open to really any size dog if I can't settle on a toy/small breed. Open to suggestions or opinions.
