Choosing the Right Dog > Low energy dog with a spitz-like appearance?

I think that his favorites in terms of appearance (I don't think he knows about personality so much, since he's not terribly into dogs and is only in the beginning phases of research) are Huskies and Samoyeds. If we could find something in rescue that was older and calmer, I think that would suit him well. smile

I recommended an older Pom or Pom mix. He was kind of turned off the breed with crazy foster dog Autumn, but I assured him that she was particularly high energy for a Pomeranian. When he's ready, I can actually get him in touch with the Pom rescue too.

I was thinking an older dog too. I'm a little hesitant to recommend a Shiba though, since I have heard that they were stubborn. A training challenge really isn't up his alley.

Does something like that even exist? I'm asking for my brother, who likes the look of spitz dogs but is a couch potato. He says that he would prefer a small-medium sized dog. I really don't know what to tell him. Do you have any ideas?

You know what's awesome? I found TWO Border Collie rescues in Texas that support responsible breeding! big grin I talked with one of them about volunteering (can't foster right now, but will after I'm through with college) and I mentioned that I would possibly be getting a show dog as well, and asked how they felt about that. They said that, obviously, they'd be careful about who they placed with me, but that it would otherwise be ok!

Thanks Milo! I'd like to foster for the Border Collie rescue (though this won't be until after I've gone to college, and possibly graduate school as well if I decide to go that route). I found two in Texas currently that were linked by the national breed club. But, I'd like to get a Dalmatian as my show dog. I just hope that I'll be able to get a decent place to live that I can have such high energy dogs...I was thinking about staying in Lubbock, but I think that Dallas is really more dog friendly thinking. Either way, not going to be for a while, so I guess it doesn't matter that much right now smile.

Well, breed-specific is okay. I have volunteered for a couple of breed-specific rescues in my area though, and they are vehemently anti-breeder frown. I guess I could check the national clubs thinking.

Though it's not going to be for a while, I want to know, because I don't want to give up rescuing when I have my show dog.

I love reading everyone's response! I love my guys, but there are some glaring issues (99% my fault) that I would like changed. Link would be the closest thing to my dream dog: he's got the right energy, the right size, and he's absolutely lovable (with me anyways), but his behavior issues are kind of hard for me to deal with.

Caledonia, I'm more of a big dog person too. I wouldn't say no to a little guy in need, but a medium-large rough and tumble dog is right up my alley wink.

Tyler, how exciting!
