    ...small to medium sized. Evenly tempered...not hard to train..not overly active, but not a bump on a log.

    ...what breeds/breed mixes do y'all recommend? :D

    Never heard of it...does that fit the description of what I want, or is it just a dog you like?

    You know what I'm gonna say...I'd go for a less active sheepdog, they are incredibly easy to train, and some of the most loyal dogs you can have :)

    I've had two (for anyone else's edification), a Sheltie and an Australian Sheepdog, and I love em both :D

    yep...... they are a kind of symbol over here for a brit..... like you'd usually find a tattoo of a boxer with the british flag behind it on the arm of a hooligan.... nice dog... but a bit dumb and slobbers everywhere :mrgreen:

    Pugs rawk. :lovey:

    Smart, affectionate, playful, patient, and weird. They put the "shed" in "sheds like a mutha" but all critters do.

    That is all. :mrgreen:

    My Yorkie didn't shed. :mrgreen:

    My only issue with small dogs is...I want something very easily trainable. My experience has been small dogs are a bit harder.

    We have a Boston Terrier and they're great dogs. We've had two so far, and no complaints on them at all. If given the time, they're easily trianed and they listen VERY well! My boyfriend and I had a Minature Pincer (sp?) (she just passed away the other day :( ) and they have like a split second memory and they're off in la la land but very affectionate dogs all the same :D
