Default Looking for a breed

Hey,

I am thinking about getting a dog, but I am wondering which breed is fat and lazy? I like fat and lazy dogs... minimal hair, but not 'bald' would be nice as well.

I'm sure if you overfeed and exercise-deprive any breed of dog, it can become "fat and lazy." >X.x;<

You don't really mean that you want a dog that you can make fat do you? Because that would be unhealthy for the dog.

Now, if you mean you are looking for a couch potato breed (one that will lie around with you), I have heard that greyhounds like to lounge.

Any dog would require some amount of exercise though, like daily walks or a run in the park or field.

So basicly, there are no breeds that are 'fat' and 'lazy' by genetics? Other then the lazy part by the greyhounds?

There are breeds that are prone to obesity, if they aren't properly fed or exercised, yes. But any good dog owner or vet would strongly recommend for these breeds, that their weight is watched closely.

A fat dog is not a healthy dog. It opens doors for heart problems, joint and bone problems (early arthritis), etc. just as it does in humans.

sounds like you need a stuffed dog if you are looking for one that requires miniumal exercise start doing your research for low energy dogs. i like high energy dogs that like to lounge when in ... mia the afghan has fit the bill really well

Oh that makes me so sad Poor dog.
Chopes, do you mean something like a Bulldog? They still need some exercise but are typically a lazy breed. French bulldogs, as well, need minimal excercise and are cute. A Basset hound even, if you're willing to give them a short walk a day and/or playtime in the backyard...

yup i got a frenc bulldog, hes only a pup but hes already showing his lazy side haha, he plays and plays around till he gets tired very quickly then he just sits on he rug and sleeps...its pretty funny, but they eat well and everything, bulldogs r the best breed for what your looking for, and frenchies usually stay around 18-24 lbs average anything over 27 lbs is a disqualification
