bull dogs are expensive and could lead to big vet bills. They seem to have back problems a lot i believe. I wanted one after seeing van wilder but was talked out of it after hearing about their health issues and that they cost a few grand

Purebreds have a lot of built in genetic defects, if you are going purebred do some research. The American Kennel Club knowingly awards best in show ribbons to dogs with serious physical and mental defects. They are put to stud and voila the defect eventually becomes the norm. These dogs are in-bred, a lot of them bear no resemblance to their ancestors, German Sheppard's and Bull Terriers for instance.

Cockerspaniel might be a good fit, train. Had one growing up. That dog wouldn't bark for anything. She had a great personality, and was good inside or out.

Please, please, please do not buy from breeders, puppy mills or retail stores!  The dog you're looking for is likely waiting patiently for you at your local animal shelter, hoping you'll rescue him/her soon.

didn't mean to bring out your mean side. As a dog lover whose grown up with big and small dogs I was just trying to give you the heads up about how much better big dogs are. That's just my opinion though. You could make it work in a city. Big dog, small dog.....they both like being outside and going for walks, etc. Good luck in your search. Goto the animal shelter with your girl and rescue one. You can find some great dogs at those places and you are doing a great deed in the process.


messylife11 you are the guy who got beat up by a hooker..i think she called the brick to your head shot..or was it a male hooker?

my girl wanted a dog and we had to go through this. get a puggle and try to get a smaller one in the litter that is more beagle than pug. the little guy barks at the doorbell but is cool otherwise. mine is full grown and is about 22 pounds. minimal shedding, pretty healthy, low exercise requirements and you dont have to pick up giant pieces of elephant garbage when the guy takes a garbage.

Chihuahua if you can train it not to bark are great veeeery low maint. chill dogs and smart...  i have 2 and they only bark when someone knocks at the door or rings the doorbell...then they go bat garbage crazy ...they friggin LOVE you too

costs me like $20 a month 'if' to feed both of them and i get the good stuff ...

 the same with pugs being chill...but quiet...  however can get quite expensive in re: to their health

GL... awesome to see you ask for opions rather than just go get one..

try the pound please...they really do make great dogs all around if they were not abused and still young.

both of my chi's are rescues

@ MBA -- my weren't pound rescures per sea...but 'life rescues' ...2 of the things that god meant to make happen

my 1st dog is a crazy story but too long to tell giving it it's proper dues...

my second: shewas  found out in the desert along side of this big shepard mutt... all mangy and bloody/scabby and beat the darn up  basically... this other dog was protecting her...took awhile to be able to get her away from him too...  pretty cool in you think about it... dogs rock. she def. would have not made it without him ... would have loved to meet the guy who dropped a puppy out in the middle of no where.
 
wish he could have been saved too but... couldn't

Train,

Get the dog that fits you best.  You're the one that's gunna be responsible for this thing, not anybody on covers.  No offense to you Messier, but none of the reasons you mention makes any sense regarding getting a big dog.  I have a 4 yr old Newfoundland, this dog is bigger than any of the dogs mentioned in your post.  But I feel sorry for Ashna (my newfy) cause I live in Houston and these dogs don't belong in hot weather.  She's absolutely miserable during the summer months.  Gotta have her shaved down, in the house or in the pool or she's hating life.

Train,

I hate to say it like this but what happens if you break up with your girl?  Is this dog yours or hers?  If its hers no problem, but if it's yours then problem.  Nothing like getting stuck with a lap dog when you never wanted one in the first place.  If this dog is yours then I strongly consider you having a bigger say than you mention.

For that weight range it wouldn't fit, but pitbulls are the exact opposite of the stereotype. My pit chills next to me and watches every game with me. Mans best friend.. Hey ad1260,, I got a bulldog also. there good dogs but you have to be prepared for them to stink. I mean literally , he farts all day lol

Thats what every single guy or guy who cant keep a girlfriend thinks. Its not about them having the power, its about them thinking they have the power. Gotta pick your battles. Hopefully you wise up one day.



Thanks for all the info and advice fellas. I will be looking into it over the next couple months and will update if I get a dog.

<------- sophie is 2 and the vet bills have been small so far.. Just the shots and checkups... but yeah later in life we've been told be prepared for bigger vet bills. mostly hip problems when they get older.
