|Lenny, I was the EXACT same as you lol... I grew up with Rotties and GSDs. Rocky, my rescue GSD X was put to sleep at the end of October last years and five months or so before that, I rescued Dexter a BC... I was always a big dog person
At the end of Feburary, I brought home Skipper, a Parson Russell Terrier (or Jack Russell if your in the States)... I always liked the 'leggier' terrier look and the broken coat so after much debate, I got one...
What can I say?...
Skip, first and foremost, thinks he's a Rottweiler lol... He's currently fourteen weeks old and is hardy, energetic, feisty, fun and all round, mental... But I love him... He's so intelligent! He's a true problem solver and isn't bothered about working independently which keeps me on my toes when I'm training him...
He loves bigger dogs and people. His favourite play mate is our neighbours Staffie lol... She tramples him, knocks him to the ground, throws him around... Rough plays but by Dog, he loves it!!!
He can keep up with Dexter, my two year old BC and Skip's dad, goes in fifteen mile mountain runs and still comes back ready to go all over again!
He's fun to train, he's constantly trying to outsmart me and is always making me laugh... He's so clever it scares me sometimes but I wouldn't have him any other way
But at the end of the day, he snuggles up next to me on the sofa and sleeps... He loves to be around people and other dogs, especially when cuddles are involved
If you're looking for a smaller, tough, fun and energetic dog... I would definitely recommend a terrier... I've been bitten by the terrier bug and don't think I'll ever look back
I can't wait until Skip is old enough for agility... He'll love it!
Have a look at Skips pictures and you'll see how hardy and leggy he is
