|Wow, this is great. I never expected to get so much feedback and information.
I have always loved the idea of Basenjis and Shiba Inus. My initial research sort of turned me off of them but I might look closer. I was concerned that the Basenji would need more exercise than I originally suspected and the Shiba was described as being very independent, plus having a high potential to run off scared me. But I don't take my dogs off leash unless the area is enclosed so that might nip that in bud right there.
I absolutely adore the look of a wirehaired dachshund. I will definitely do more checking into them because the thought of them hunting small wild creatures in my yard is not pleasant. We get a lot of rabbits, stray cats, and there's definitely something digging small holes in our yard already. I just hate to see any animal get hurt.
I've met one Shar Pei in my life and he was very calm, barked occasionally but usually for attention, very focused on his owner and couldn't care less about me. So all those things worked for me, plus I love the look. With my pug, I've dealt with entropions, skin allergies, and ear issues even though I clean them regularly. So while I would love to get a dog without those issues, at least I feel better equiped to handle those particular problems should they come up.
