Talking Please help me choose the right dog breed.

Hiya Everyone.

I'm new to the board, just joined after searching for a good dog forum to chat on. And I found this one, which seem Brilliant!!!

I am dogless at the moment and will not be getting one till next year sometime but I am going to use this time to research and get at much info as possible.

The 1st thing I would like help with is I want to find the right breeder and want to know the best way, I'm in the uk and have been looking at people who have won at national dog shows and also breed their dogs.
Is this the best way to find a good honest breeder?

The 2nd thing I would like help with is I am interested in 2 breeds and don't know which would make the better pet.
I love the French bulldog and the Boston Terrrier and would love to hear from people who have had these dogs as pets, so they can tell me a bit more about them from a personal point of view.

I have read a lot of info on them but sometime they contradict each other.
What are the French and boston like energy wise, barking and do they like laps and cuddles?

From my research so far it seems that there are not to many Boston breeders in my area, so the 3rd thing is, if anyone from the uk knows of a brilliant breeder that gets their dogs tested etc and they got their dog from or know someone that did then please reply to my post.

Thank you to everyone who reads this and a big Thank you in advance to all that reply.

I look forward to hearing from you.
Take care
Sammi J

Hello and welcome to the forum. Great to have you with us.

I don't have much knowledge of either breed. I like the Frenchies best though so that would be my choice. Good luck with your puppy search.

To be honest I don't know much about either breed, but I voted for the French one just becuase I too like them better.

I am a Boston Terrier fan. Both breeds make great companions however. I'd check out http://www.akc.org to read up on the breed standards etc. From their I'd check out any information you can find on both breeds on the web.

Then I'd get a list of breeders of both dogs that are in your are or nearby and give them a call and see what they have to say about their breeds. Attend a couple of dogs shows in your area as well and talk to people who on these breeds.

Here is where you can find a listing of shows in your neck of the woods.

Good luck

Boston Terrier cos they are fast and active + I'm not crazy about Fr Bulldogs cos they snore.

I don't know much about either breed. I once met a Boston Terrier pup though. Very energetic, loved to chew (especially my arm..ouch), loved the other dogs and people.
