Hello everyon! I am currently in the market of looking for a new dog. It's been about 6 years since I've had a dog, and so you can imagine the excitement i'm going through!
I just have one question, and that is help me choose a breed! So a little bit about what I'm looking for, and feel free to offer any suggestions and or break any expectations I may have if it's just not possible. Also important to add, I plan on attempting to adopt first before trying to go through a breeder. So if anyone is familiar with the Greater SEA area and know of any reputable dog adoption locations please share.
I basically live in a small home and have a regular 8.5 hr day job like everyone else. So yes, the dog will be inside the home or in the garage. So even though I do plan on walking/running/keeping it active, there is no escaping this daily slump, and so I need a dog that's ok with being left alone and being a couch potato.
I need, NEED, to have a dog I can run or hike with in cold/rainy climate, I live in WA state and I do jog/run regardless of the weather. However, I don't do long distance running, more like 3-4 miles or intervals.
Lastly, if possible i'd like to have a dog that's moderately shedding. Just a personal preference, but not high on the priority haha.
