|Thanks for the responses and information on dog breeds that may suit me!
I, honestly, have NEVER heard of the Silken Windhound. Are they super rare?
I have never met a Tibetan Spaniel because they, I believe, are pretty rare in Utah.
That's something I forgot to mention, I would like to get a breed that is common in the state of Utah, I don't want to travel out of state looking for a rarer breed.
I have always thought Puggles were cute and sweet, but I didn't take into consideration the Beagle traits. Pugs I love because they are cheerful and kid friendly, but I didn't take into consideration the breathing/Brachycephalic problems, so that is scaring me a little.
There is a super cute Boston Terrier that lives down the street from me. He is always out in the front yard with his owners and greets my dogs as I am walking them. He's cute and sweet, it's just that, again, I'm worried about the Brachycephalic part now :|
I forgot there are 2 varieties of the Cocker Spaniel. I am using Cocker Spaniel as a general term. Both the English and American seem to fit what I am looking for. I have met several of these little guys through the rescue I volunteer with. A volunteer who works with the cats from the rescue, has 3 Cocker Spaniels, 1 of which she adopted from the rescue. All are cheerful and sweet, love to be active, but are also mellow. I like this breed, a lot!
I have never met a mean Shih Tzu or Miniature Poodle. The ones I have met are super cheerful and sweet. Maybe their owners have just socialized them well? I've heard some other people who have had bad experiences with these dogs. The Miniature Schnauzers I have met are sweet and cheerful, but a little grumpy because they were older. But I still like them!
I guess, as you can see, I love the cheerful and sweetness in a breed. I just can't see myself having a grumpy, unsocial breed.
Thanks again! And please keep the breeds coming!
