|I've got a '96 Jeep Cherokee. It works perfectly for me, and has ruined all other possibility of other cars for my lifetime. My favorite vehicle ever, period. (Can you tell I'm biased...)
On a more technical note, it's small. Most people thing the Cherokee is big but it's NOT. I can fit one big crate in the back facing the hatch or two facing the windows with the seats down. The seats up, a smaller crate in the back, maybe two. It's defiantly not for big dogs that's for sure. Small dogs fit perfect.
Gas mileage, 20 tops highway... with no payload. Not the best out there in that class XD
It does have four wheel drive and handles very well, turning radius like a dime.
As for the why... I needed a car when I moved out, found an ad for the Jeep online, checked it out, came home with it. I love Jeeps, trucks, SUV's... those sorts of things. I wanted a car I could go offroad in, that wasn't huge, that I didn't need to worry about dirt inside and generally was a good rugged vehicle. My Jeep is perfect for me, and works very well as a dog car as long as I don't get anything bigger than a 70 pound dog.
But I don't think that's what you're looking for. I have heard good things about the Honda Element as a dog car, and the Subaru Outback.
There was a recentish thread about this very subject... Don't know where it went though.
