Thank you all for your ideas!

It does not matter to me if the dog is just cuddly with me or stangers too. I'm up for either. I am willing to give as much exercise as needed. Though I would prefer at least an hour less exercise than what my Aussie needs/ gets. Right now I exercise Jasper 5 hours a day. If for some reason I can not come home at lunch time I take him to Doggy Daycare to play with other dogs.

We do a 1 hour run in the morning.
1 hour jog, and 1 hour run at lunch. OR Doggy Daycare
1 hour run at night.
30 min agility/ training, and 30 min of frisbee/ ball

Okay so I have been thinking about getting another dog for a long time now. I do not plan on getting another dog for at least a year from now for a couple of different reasons.

Those reasons being: Right now I am in the process of getting things ready to move out of my apartment into a townhouse. I am also starting a new job in a few months. And one of the main reasons is Jasper is still a puppy that is under going lots of training. I do not want to bring another dog into the picture until Jasper is at least a year and a half. But I figure it is never to early to start researching breeds and have a plan. So I would like so help on breed ideas.

A little about my life. I am 19 going on 20 and have owned dogs my whole life. I work at a Vet Hospital Monday-Friday 8AM to 6PM. And once a month I have Kennels on Sat and Sunday but that only takes about an hour in the morning and a hour at night. I come home for an hour and a half each day at lunch time to run with Jasper. And about 1-2 times a week Jasper goes to doggy Daycare. I am taking college online and am in my second year. I am getting ready to start a new job where my hours will be 11am to 7pm Monday to Friday. My life completely rovolves around my work and my animals. I am not the person that likes to go out and party and stuff like that. I would much rather be out with my dogs training.


What I am looking for:

Size: Between 10-50 pounds
Grooming: Any. I am willing to groom as much as needed.
Energy Level: Low to med energy level (At least not as high as my Aussie)

Must be good with other dogs.
Smart.
Likes to be around people. Likes to cuddle. haha I want something a little more loving than my working line Aussie.

Any help and breed suggestions would be great. smile Thanks!


If it helps I will list breeds I have lots of experience with:

Husky
Greyhound
Borzoi
Beagle
Aussie
Basenji
Miniatur e Pinscher
Doberman Pinscher
Boxer
American Bull Dog
American Pit Bull
Lab
Golden
Shih Tzu
German Shepherd
Border Collie
Collie

My boy Jasper will be 5 months old on Feb 9th. He is about 20" tall and 32.2 pounds as of last Friday. I think is is kind of big for his age. He is from working lines also not show lines.
