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...

HAHHA look how cute these things are  Grin


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



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 Smiley

Take her to see a puppy, this will change her whole aspect, Every dog is cute, even the scary ones when they are puppies.

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.  Cheesy

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.
