Default The Right Breed

I've been looking into dogs, but theres a lot of requirements. My whole family dislikes dogs. They don't want me to have a dog, so I want a dog that no one can say no to,you know? The owner of my house says no dogs, but the woman that takes care of this house says "as long as I don't see it, its fine." because we not only replace anything,we replace it with quality stuff. In any case, we have three cats,and a ferret, as well as some small snakes.Needless to say, something that wont try to eat my pets.I'd like a dog I can train. Doesn't need to be really easy to train,but I'd like a dog that isn't going to match wits with me every time. I want a dog that is friendly, and isn't going to bite someone, or has a breed that is prone to biting. I want a dog that is going to want to cuddle, too. No barking, of course, since I've got close neighbors. I don't want a dog that needs hours of exercise, but a dog that needs one or two walks a day and some play would be great. I'd also like to show, as a bit of a hobby, maybe. Mostly a companion, though, of course!

Welcome to Dogforum.org.

I would have to say wait, wait until you move to a place that allows you to have a dog. It is important that the dog has a forever home and a house owner that says no dogs will surely make you get rid of the dog if you are caught. That is but one reason I see here and the most critical.

Hi yer, maybe it would be wiser to wait a bit longer and your circumstances change in your favour.

Welcome ugly coyote..... Why do you want to bring a dog into a home where no one wants it but you...."the owner of the house has said no to dogs" already...this sounds like a bad decision on your part...this is why there are so many dogs in shelters now. If you want to be around dogs...why don't you volunteer at your local shelter as I'm sure they could use the help and this should help your desire to "own" a dog...until your living arrangements change/improve.....

I appreciate the concerns, and thank you guys.Thanks for the warm welcome,also. I used to volunteer at the animal shelter, but now I'm waiting to be contacted by the local zoo and a wolf haven. As far as a dog goes, the owner of the house could/would never find out, because she's out of state. Also, ferrets weren't allowed and she still let me keep him. Also, I would never ever give my dog up. I'd rather be homeless. Pets simply are not disposable, and I will not give my dog up. It really isn't a problem, but I do appreciate the concern. I'll get her permission if it really comes down to it, because I've been there for four years, and with the recent in and out tenants, she'll let me stay. The worst scenario is I'd have to move into a hotel for a few weeks or with a friend. I think I know my living situation pretty well, and I wouldn't get an animal if I thought there was any chance of endangering the dog in any way- including loosing its home. I've got quite a few animals, so I've been doing the consideration and research for years. as I said, though, I appreciate the concern.

hey and welcome! and sorry in advance, cause you won't like this..... my advise is don't get a dog now. i know you really want one, but you have way too many conditions, and way too many negatives, in your life right now. all dogs bark, for one. if no-one else wants one, every time the slightest thing goes wrong you will be under a huge amount of pressure. dogs are living individuals, and there is no way any dog will arrive fitting the bill. the dog you want is almost possible , but you will have to create that being by raising and training and working hard with whatever breed you choose...... now does not sound like the time or place
