Title: Looking for a new dog...
Post by: Alex23 on December 05, 2008, 12:08:38 AM
I want something athletic but compact... sub 20lb if possible... I was thinking about a jaclk Russel but heard they aren't affectionate and destroy everything...

Check out a Shiba Inu.  They look like little miniature Akitas or little foxes.

Hopefully, you can catch these little guys while they're on air.

Get a spud Mackenzie dog. I can't remember the name I think it is a bull terrier. Those dogs are hella cool.  Small to and athletic. Would give you a good buddy to ride in the hummer with.

get an english bull dog..i have one named Kosmo. he is pretty cool. Only thing is when he eats...he eats too fast and throws up...but as long as youre a good dog owner as far as the walking and the feeding timing...he is a  great dog...

English bulldog, very affectionate and great dog... but I need something that can run in the woods and catch gofers :), yea I heard wippet are great for that but they have a tendency to juice up too much :)

German Shepherd... my favorite dog; for a while my Dad was a RCMP K9 Police, we used to breed them and train them. Great dog but I want something more compact for now :)

a vote for bull terriers if you want something athletic. dogs are effing awesome. playful, downright goofy, plus i love any dog with a really distinct look.

Staffordshire Terriers are cool.

Don't get a jack russell. I hate them dogs. Neighbour has one and all it does it bark and go psycho.

I don't know if their suitable, but French Bulldogs are cool. In fact, pretty much any kind of bulldog is cool. I don't think they're very energetic dogs though. I could be wrong, but i think they can be a little bit more "high maintenance" than most breeds...

bullies are the opposite of energetic.  :D

as for maintenance, depends on your breeder. hip and eye problems are kinda common, but so far mine's had neither. i've spent more on kittens in the first year than i have on my bully so far.

Miniature bull terrier....athletic type miniature English bulldog....French Bulldog....Boston terrier.  All of these dogs fit your requirements.  I would recommend the mini bull terrier.  Your wife should not be afraid of the mini bull's, they only weigh about 15-25lbs.  Nothing to worry about.

We bred a couple of batches of ROTT.. the last one we kept, "Brutus" was well over 130lb... being humped by that beast was statutory classified as rape  ;D

I have an American bull, but he is very large.  I believe Alex was looking for something under 25lbs.  Below is a updated picture of my boy.  Last time you guys saw him he was 1 year old.  I will try to get some better shots up soon.  This was taken with my blackberry, and it's not a very high quality picture!  I don't think my puppy likes what is being done to his ears!

No problem.  I think thats your best bet.  I (like you) am in the market to find a smaller dog as a sister to my American bull.  I want something that is athletic enough to keep up with him, but also something that is small and compact.

I think the mini bull is perfect for you.  Find a nice stout little guy that is about 20lbs of solid muscle.  Check this guy out:

I say go with the mini bull as well.  Patton had the full size.

http://www.pattonhq.com/willie.html

General Patton was an avid animal lover. He bought the first of many bull terriers just after World War I for his daughters, Beatrice and Ruth Ellen, and named him Tank. Although Tank turned out to be stone deaf, the girls loved him and called him by thumping on the floor. In spite of his deafness, Tank somehow always knew when Patton was arriving home and met him at the front door.

The most famous bull terrier owned by General Patton was purchased on 4 March, 1944. He was named Willie, short for "William the Conqueror." Willie was devoted to General Patton and followed him everywhere.

When General Patton bought Willie, he wrote in his diary, "My bull pup . . . took to me like a duck to water. He is 15 months old, pure white except for a little lemin [sic] on his tail which to a cursory glance would seem to indicate that he had not used toilet paper. . ." Willie wore jingle bells on his collar so everyone would know when he was around and he was rumored to be a prodigious "lover." He supposedly had his own set of "dog tags," too.

Or you could always go with the "Snatch" dog, Daisy!!!! lol

Lol, no.  I do wish I could figure out what kind of dog it was in the movie.  It looks like a pitbull mixed with something else.

Another criteria; my new dog must be able to do this;

That is a Sheba Inu.  They stay looking just like that, only a little bigger - maybe 25 lbs.
