So H and I should be moving in a few weeks. Number 1 for us is to adopt a dog after we move in and get settled. What breed do you recommend? I have always been a large dog person. H has only had one dog and it was a lab/pitt mix. His parents gave her away when he left for the army and didn't tell him. Poor guy, think he is still heart broken over it. I want a breed good with kids and hopefully other dogs. I know each dog has its own quirks, but is there any breed you recommend in particular. I had a black lab when I was a baby until 5. She was my dad's when he was a kid. A golden retriever from the time I was 5 until she died when I was in high school. A rottie from puppy until she died of cancer around 10. The local shelter is filled with pitts. I adopted a pitt that I had for several years until she and my rottie couldn't be together any longer. I loved pitts but don't think I want another one after all the heart ache.
My parents rescued layla, a boxer from NC, as soon as he was old enough. She has been a great puppy for them.
All the adorableness on petfinder is not helping me narrow it down.
