Im looking to obtain a puppy to compleate my girlfriend and my first house together but what to seize?
we have both got experience, as a child i grew up with a west highland terrier and my girlfriend have a labradore. although we would love to get a lab our first house is just a little small we suppose and although it has a garden it is a very small garden. so we are looking for a smaller dog and preferable one that is as low a shedder as possible. most research we enjoy done on low shedding small dogs comes up with the same curly haired dogs but we are realy looking for a short coated or straight haired dog rather than right to be heard a labradoodle or any of the other perm looking breeds. can anyone give us any suggestions on a low shedding straight haired breed that isnt to big? thank u all very much whether u reply! john and sharon (cheshire)
also consider breeds that are good with children, who knows where on earth your relationship will take you! i would not suggest most terriers for young familys, retrievers and spaniels are normally a good option.
Anyway, Good luck.
A mini Dachshund. They are small, have sleek shimmering hair and are very easy to groom. They love to play, are smart and affectionate. They potty train pretty smoothly. We have the standard size. And they come in a variety of colors. They aren't little puff ball. 5th most popular dog.
You should look at soft coated wheaten terriers. They look repulsive in my opinion when they are cut the way they do contained by the shows but are adorable if you leave them shaggy. They are considered to be "hypoallergenic" and are medium sized.
Eventually you will all be evicted and a new landlord will not allow dogs. Then what happen, you will be homeless and your puppy will go to a rescue centre.
Wait until you have your own house and you can afford time care for your dog. Dogs are very expensive and at present you need to concentrate on your strange relationship and your jobs.

or a golden retreiver.
here is a good join with a good amount of dogs that shed very little
get a dachshund. they are very lovable but not that great around babies unless u take them used to kids while they are still puppies
A jack Russell would be your best bet.
Why don't you take a trip to the nearest Rescue centre and see if a dog chooses you?
silky terrier maybe
get a st bernard!
If you have experience with terriers, Scottish terriers could be a dutiful match for you. Please do keep in intellect that this breed, while small, requires lots of exercise to burn off that terrier drive daily.
There is NO such thing as a mammal that doesn't shed. Even ethnic group who own low shedding dogs are prone to some allergies as it is the dander and not the fur that can trigger allergy attacks for some. Therefor, there is also no such thing as a 100% hypoallergenic dog either. Some are newly less prone to triggering allergies than others.
When you do opt on a puppy though, please do not buy any mixed breed (unless from a dog shelter), 'breeders' that breed such dogs have no care for their animals and are out to make money. Make certain you find a good, responsible breeder that is breeding to better the breed.
Small dogs are generally low shedders but those that are own long hair. Short haired dogs shed more than long haired.
Make sure u do ur research on the breed!! DO NOT get a Boxer close to the other person said. I'm a boxer owner and they are high energy dogs that require LOTS of exercise. U said u enjoy a small backyard, so stick with the toy breeds or the lazy laid back breeds (like a bulldog). Bulldogs can be tricky to train though. Stay away from hounds like the Beagle b/c they'll constently be looking for FOOD! All hounds are just what their bred for-hunting! Shitzu's, West Highland Terrior, Pug, Bulldog, Teacup Chihuahua, Min-Pin (Mini-pinscher), Scottie, Corgi, Daschaund are adjectives good dogs for small spaces. Stick with the shortcoat dogs. I grew up breeding Labs-their excellent family dogs, but inevitability a good yard to romp around in.
If u choose from a litter, don't pick the most nimble dog b/c that is most likely how it'll be when full grown. In a small house, u don't want a high vigour dog. Pick a pup that has an even temperment and avoid a pup if it's segragated (by itself)from the litter. Observe the pups and how they play in writ to pick out a good puppy b/c u want to end up w/a good Dog.
The two of u should jump to ur local shelter and rescue a puppy save him from getting put to sleep. Puppies are cute, but getting a young dog is so much easier b/c U don't need to housebreak it or spend every other hour taking it external and waiting 20 min before it goes poo. Getting a full grown dog from the shelter eliminates guesswork on how big it'll achieve and if it'll fit in ur home. Shelter dogs are also already up to date on shots and are already spayed/neutered.
There are great dogs at the shelter-mixes in fact tend to make a better family pet and have a more even temperment. These days inhabitants are dropping of their family pet at the shelter b/c the can't afford it with the economy self so bad. Shelters have seen an increase within their shelter population and their all waiting and looking for homes. The shelter will also match dogs to ur lifestyle.
It will ask you questions regarding size, affection, playfulness, grooming, zest level, exercise, training, etc and will give you a list of dogs that fit you and your lifestyle. :)
Regardless of your choice, brand name sure to do the proper research on the breed and find dogs in the area that you can interact beside before getting one.
A BOXER IS AN EXCELLENT DOG THEY ARE REAL PEOPLE DOGS BUT REQUIRE A LOT OF ATTENTION BUT YOU GET A LOT OF LOVE IN RETURN
a husky would be cute
