|Sorry I posted this and then disappeared!
Had to send my laptop to get fixed the day I posted this, just got it back today, and now I'm having issues with Dogster
I brought the idea of a Poodle up to her and she said that's a breed she would definitely consider. Permitting that keeping them clipped right short is acceptable (not sure how the longer coated breeds and grooming works)
Going to keep them in mind, thanks for the suggestion!
Cohen - I love Nixxy. She's actually the dog that put the breed back in my mind (NSDTRs were on the list years ago, before Cobain)
She's not really looking for a dog to "love everyone" like a Lab, but sort of like Cobain in the "tolerating" of other people and dogs. Greet someone if introduced, but doesn't thrive of being patted by everyone who walks by type of thing.
The reason I mentioned that specific breeder is because since we're still in the early stages of research, this would be a very convenient breeder to meet her stock and get a feel for their lines without having to travel half the country away (although for the right dog she's willing to travel of course). I found them on the Ontario NSDTR club, but I'm not sure if they're a member of the national breed club.
Sabi - We're actually hoping to make a trip out east sometime later this summer. If we make it, I think I'll try to arrange maybe a meeting with the breeder to get a better idea of their lines as well. From what you describe and what I'm seeing on their site, they seem to be what my mother is looking for! Thanks!
