Hi folks, sorry I am a first time poster here. But recently I just decided to become a dog owner.
I am a 26 year old man, working full time living in San Leandro, CA with an older brother, a sister in law and a 2 year old nephew.
Ive never really owned a dog before but I have been around them through out my entire life.
This may be alot to ask but hell why not. What better way to find that perfect companion than to post in a dog forum website.
Ok here it goes. I live with a 2 year old nephew and my sister in law is a clean freak. So excess shedding would be an issue. Thankfully we have a house full of hardwood flors and tiles so it shouldnt be that big of a problem.
He/She must be indoor friendly and child friendly. I am not sure what type of breeds is perfect. so they cant be to rowdy! not to mention my brother gets annoyed easily.
I want a small dog, probably the same size as a jack russle. nothing to small like a chihuahua.
I've always wanted a jack russle but their energetic nature might be a problem. I need something a bit more timid for me and the family. I also dont know weather a male or female would matter. Female dogs have their menstrual phases and male dogs get a bit to rowdy is that right?
so please, if you have the time help me out! Thanks in advance.
