I'll be buying a house later this year/early next year, and have a Golden Retriever who'll be 6 in January. She's spayed, so she never got to be a mommy. Decided next year when things get settled it'll be the time to have her be an adopted mommy.

But what to get?

What to get.....




After doing a lot of reading, researching, and talking to owners, the new dog will be:



The Boxer!:supergrin:

The size is perfect for me, and I'm looking for a short haired dog who's relatively clean and easy to train. Even taking in their high level of activity (As a Golden owner I know this well) it'll still be perfect for me.

I'll be looking for a female, fawn, docked tail, floppy ears. This should be interesting!:supergrin:

You can't go wrong with a boxer. They are one of my favorite breeds. Smart, friendly, great companions, good with kids. They are large enough to be a deterrent to a potential threat, but not overly aggresive. I think you are making a good choice.

However you might also consider the Dobie, man's most loyal friend. Gonna get the nomex drawers out now, I can hear the howls of derision from the GSD crew.

Boxers are great dogs, my grandfather alaways had a boxer out on his ranch, and they were all great dogs.

If possible, spend the extra cash on a dog from a good breeder who has dogs from working lines.

+1 .also be sure to note some boxers acquire heart problems at an early age. screen the dogs.

You know, I 'cut my teeth' as a dog trainer on a male Australian Cattle Dog (OMFG) and this breed is the one I plan to choose a companion from the next time I get a dog.

That is because I have yet to meet a boxer-dog I didn't like.:hearts:

I've know a couple of boxers, and they seemed like great dogs (very friendly at first, even though I was a complete stranger). Good "alarm systems," too.
