Dog breed info...MrsPotato,Karala. Anyone knowledgable.
I have been researching on here specifically recently, and looking into French bulldogs, possibly a cross of both the Frenchie and Boston terrier, but I see that doesn't guarantee cutting down on the inherent health problems of the brachycephalic breeds. I have been researching legitimate breeders for over a year and can't pull the trigger. I want to make sure I get the right dog/breed for us and make sure we are right for the dog.
We have a friend that owns a Frenchie/Boston cross. He is a little sweetheart. I would appreciate honest opinions on the Frenchie or the Frenchie/Boston cross... My husband thinks something like a Border terrier would be better suited as they have few health problems.
Here's a bit about us. My husband and I have one school aged child. No other pets. Own a condo, I am a stay at home mom and would have a lot of time and attention to give to a dog. Dog park next door. I would appreciate any info and advice as to a suitable breed for us.
We would like a breed that's good with kids. Smaller would be better. Under 30lbs preferable. Not a super high energy breed. But doesn't need to be a couch potato either.
I see MrsPotato and Karala specifically have great information and would love your input. I tried to PM, but assume I need to post a few times until I can do so. Thanks for any advice in advance. If you would rather PM me that's fine too.
