Well, this is definitely an interesting turn of events. I had never figured myself to want a dog (purely cat person) and here I am, looking up breeds, and trying to find the right fit for me.
So, I live in the Great White North called Canada, British Columbia in... well, nowhere pretty much. Considering most of the interesting stuff is down on the mainland... I enjoy reading and writing and general creative pursuits. I also like camping, hunting, and hiking. I've been considering going for a Veterinarian Technician course but that's still up in the air right now.
I currently own one Maroon-Bellied Conure and two cats (one a brat, the other afraid of her own shadow) and a rabbit (not for long, though
). I have owned several previous cats, three dwarf hamsters, two rats, and dogs (while I was with my parents so they don't count).
My personal preference for breeds (not the kind I can get, unfortunately) are the spitz (especially the Pom and Shiba Inu), Slovensky Kopov (had one and he was awesome), Caucasion Ovcharka (amazing instincts), Australian Cattle Dog (love the look, so vain of me), Doberman Pinscher (I love the black-and-tan look),and the Papillon (those fuzzy, adorable, cyute ears).
I'll probably post another 'what breed should I look for' soon. And, yes, I know that shelters and rescues are a choice as well and although I'll be avoiding our SPCA I'm definitely going to try and get a rescue dog if I can ^^
