Any animal shelter worker who is dedicated to their job and helping animals will make sure any potential owners will be a good fit for that particular dog. Many of those dogs have been abandoned/abused, and they'll work hard to give them the life they deserve.
I know I'm over paranoid about a plethora of subjects it's my fault lol. I edited that last post. The mini doodles only get 21 inches tall so that's not bad. Both kids and my wife are in love with it.
"Nobody makes me bleed my own blood, nobody!"
I have a black doodle and I have had two German shepherds and a golden retriever - I will always have a doodle from now on, they are the best mannered dog I have seen without the shedding

There are pics of dogs that shed in that link. Bulldogs, Dachsunds, Chihuahuas, etc. Anything that has fur, and not hair will shed. I've had bulldogs, and I have a Pitbull, and they shed. I don't notice it, though.
I love Jack Russells and Pitbulls, but they are high energy, and need to be exercised. It's good to wear out little kids, if you think they will take the responsibility. My Pitbull is hyper as heck, but she keeps me active.
Ally will beat the crap out of Uga.
I notice my black pit shedding everywhere haha. my white one not so much.
My labs shed like crazy dude
Not guilty y'all got to feel me
Mini schnauzer. Smart easy to train very little dander.
Anybody ever owned a Rhodesian Ridgeback? I'm looking at getting a new pup and these things look awesome, and are supposed to be really smart and non-aggressive.

Dive for the thrill, shoot for the kill.
lol@a jack russell being average energy or below.
This is what I would have recommended based on what the OP is looking for.
They are very good dogs. I grew up with a guy whose family had one. They are extremely smart. Sometimes they are tough to find, but they would be a good choice if you can get your hands on one.
I just bought a Scottish Deerhound and it is WAY smarter than my pit bulls. Of course he will end up being gigantic, but he's been awesome so far.
Yeah I'm finding out how hard they are to find.. Especially when some people are wanting $1500+ for one, but I've found quite a few breeders that are wanting around 700 for one and I think that might be what I end up paying... Not too bad for a registered dog from a respectable breeder no matter what type it is.
I think they wind up being around 70-100 Lbs unless you get one that is from larger breed bloodline, then they can reach upwards of 130+. The normal size is only around 24-27" at the shoulder height. I've found one breeder close to me but no pups will be ready through him until June.
Four months isn't that long of a wait. I was going to say that you would probably have to pay around 800 to 1,000 for a good one with a decent bloodline and papers. Hell I had to pay $1,300 for the deerhound that I just bought. The rarer the dog, the more they are going to cost. Believe it or not, Ridgebacks are good hunting dogs as well. That was the reason I bought my Scottish Deerhound. I love pit bulls but I wanted a dog that I could take hunting with me.
Yeah I've heard of a lot of people using them to hunt deer and hogs.. I mean they were breed to hunt Lions so I'd imagine they'd track pretty well haha
I love your dog, Les. We have a chihuahua/boston/not sure what else mix. He's a little too hyper for us still (3 years old) but getting there. Very obedient.
My English is a female runt. 34lbs full grown. Looks like a mini.
Also, she used to shed twice as bad as she does now. I got her on a nice grain-free food and her coat is much softer and the shedding is so much less.

he wouldn't let his players pose in the Playboy All-American magazine edition, he said, "Cause you can't play football with an erection."
You have a cute dog. Cute wife too. I hope you don't take that the wrong way. My wife to be is now almost six months pregnant.
If you're looking for a large sight hound, my dad breeds Irish Wolfhounds and I could likely get anyone to the front of that waiting list.
He was actually telling me about one taking down an adult white tail just the other day.
I'm not looking for that large of a dog, but I appreciate the input. I think I'm going to get a ridgeback I might just have to wait a little while...
I was about to adopt this mastiff/English bulldog today... but then I found out my landlord has a weight limit for dogs in the building. He's roughly 50lbs, but reportedly a great apartment dog.
Basset Hounds are awesome. My damn near potty trained itself.
Just awesome personalities. Our 1.5 year old keeps the family laughing daily.

I have a buddy that has been trying to find a good bloodline Irish Wolfhound. He will pay good money as well. Hit me up with your info in a PM and I'll send you his. He's been looking for a good one for damn near a year now.
Pm returned sir. Sorry I was busy at work today!
