|I already figured you were indecisive. Either that or someone who over analyzes! Maybe you are BOTH, lol!
One thing I will say, from my many years of experience, is that often with people who are indecisive, a mutt does remain a good answer. Just because no one is totally speaking to you, and/or you have no ultra precise image in mind. Mutts can be pretty moderate, moreso than purebreds would be. I so *totally* had your dog in my rescue a while back....Finn. ACD/Catahoula mix. Ok, I know that sounds crazy, but he was INSANELY your dog. Scroll down to see him (second dog on the page, bigger in person than he appears)....he was such a doll. Just had the "Mr. Cool" vibe about him. Was really easy, but always up for anything. Very praise motivated. Liked everything. Looked for that one special bond but was ultra amenable to those he didn't know. Came from the deep country of Louisiana, now lives in Brooklyn
So I know you are just in the exploring phase, that you are not going to do this for a while, but I *totally* wouldn't rule it out.
Anyway, just a few more questions and then I am ready to match.
How are you with working on issues? I don't mean anything crazy, but if you had a dog who was not where you wanted him to be....we're talking about maybe a difficult teenage phase, or maybe he's a barker, maybe some SA, maybe he doesn't love other dogs. Is something like this in the "it's all good file"....something to work on, maybe you like some challenge. Or, do you think you'd be somewhat bummed? Still do the work of course, but still feel a little bummed?
I have to ask another personal question. How social is your life? Do you have a lot of people coming and going in your house? Are you more of a loner or do you have a pretty socially active life?
City, suburbs or country, do you think?
Do you anticipate other pets at any point....cats, guinea pigs, a parrot?
Finally, vigor. Do you like dogs who do things in a large way? Dogs who like to rough house? Tear a cardboard box apart? Or do you prefer something more delicate and gentle in the way they do things.
What about you? Are you more vigorous or gentle, would you say?
Are you soft hearted? Gullible? Easily manipulated. Or a hard ass? Somewhere in between?
