We have had AKC registered Bulldogs for years, but the next Dog we get will be a rescue Mutt or Mix of some kind. The AKC has promoted the standard to the point that life span and health issues are a travesty in pure breeds. Our Bulldogs are wonderful creatures and as such I find that they win your heart and then break it in six or seven years. I just lost my best friend, see my avatar, after six years so I'm biased, but the in-breading encouraged by the AKC is next to cruelty to animals.
I'm all for getting the size that fits your life style in a mixed critter. I never met a dog I didn't like.

With all the responses, this should make your decision easier. (One of each)

We have been raising and training golden retrievers as therapy dogs for many years. When we started RVing, the dogs (we had two at the time) traveled with us, and visited hospitals, nursing homes and the like at various stops (we were full-timing at the time in a 5th wheel). Now with the motor home we have only one, a female, and before she matured from "puppyhood", I thought that I would need therapy. She has developed into a great travel companion, however, and really loves to "meet and greet" at all the campgrounds and RV parks. The dog hair is another story, however!!

This is the only kind we will have. Over the years, we've had two dogs with our RVs. ALL dogs are a royal PITA...have to walk them, rain, sleet, snow 115 degrees, makes no difference; they track in dirt, leaves, sand, other dogs poo, they shed, tear up things, etc. Want a pet...get a cat, bird, fish, etc. Every time the weather is nasty and we are sitting in our MH and some poor guy (normally it's the guy) goes by walking his dog...I'm glad we don't have one any more.
Yea , but I bet you ain't no chick magnet by yourself. I never new how much I loved my two Poodles. I"d get rid of the DW before getting rid of the pups.
(And they have never once talked back or snitched on me)

You know what my dogs call cats? BAIT

There are dog lovers and there are those that don;t, If I had to depend on a dog to get a women or man which ever the case might be; well --------------you fill in the blanks.
I had a live basset hound that traveled with me once; never again.

Another vote for non-shedding breed of your choice.




LOVE IT!
