Default Which Breed?

Most of you probably know that sometime in the future I want to adopt a canine companion for my female Alaskan Husky, Sydney. You also probably know that I would be adopting after I have resolved some training issues with Sydney.

My question is, what breed of dog should I get? I was thinking either a lab, Golden Retriever, or another husky. But I'm open to new ideas! I'd like a large dog with an eager, easy-going personality.

I'm not sure if I want another husky because of the heat here in Louisiana. I adopted Sydney because she was in dire need of a home (and because I fell completely in love with her. ) but I don't know if I want to deal with another arctic breed.

Oh, and I'll add that I would be getting a shelter doggie

I should also say that Sydney is normally very interested in other dogs. She craves other doggy attentioin, I think.

Thanks in advance

I would just go to the shelter and check them alllll out. I never go in there with an idea of what I'm looking for but almost always find one I love.

Hehe, good idea. I've been going on petfinder a lot and I've fallen in love with a few.

Great job for planning on adopting. I have 1 thing to add. If I am not mistaken doesn't your sister have a unspayed dog? I know that shelters around here won't allow you to adopt if you have a unspayed dog, don't know about your area. Not trying to discourage you from adopting, there are a lot of wonderful dogs that are waiting for a loving home!

The shelter near me neuters\spays every dog before adoption so I don't think they'd have a problem with an unspayed dog. And my sister's dog is definately a loner (she hates other dogs) so they wouldn't have any contact. I don't know if the shelter would buy that, though.

Thanks for bringing that to my attention
