I recently moved to a new town and there are tons of wild animals and bears that are constantly in the yard. I do not expect my dog to protect me from a bear obviously, but I am looking for a larger dog to help myself feel more comfortable and safe. I have experience with Aussie shepherds, heelers, and golden retrievers. I currently have an 8lb female Lhasapoo, there are no other pets or children in the home. I work part time out of the house and part time at home, so the new guy will rarely be alone.
I am looking for a medium to large dog, very minimal shedding, I do not like social butterfly breeds (I prefer my dog to only prefer me lol), a dog that responds to commands quickly.
Thank you for any suggestions!!
I have no experience with either breed... you may get more responses if you post this in the General Discussion subforum instead
