Even I'm considering getting a dog now. Since this pandemic I have started to work a lot at home so I feel having a dog will be nice. I live alone in an apartment. Once situation becomes normal I will be working 8-10 hours away so I'm not feeling good about leaving a dog alone for that along. Does anyone have such a breed that is fine just staying indoors most of the time? Preferably a smaller dog. Or would you suggest getting a cat instead?

Cynophile, I think that based on your living situation, you should get a cat (and not one that is "dog like" - there are such cats) .

Personally, I am a dog person but have had both and fortunately they got along. But with the pandemic and once the situation becomes normal, if it ever does, I really believe that you would be best to have a cat. At the very least you wouldn't have to worry about someone complaining about your pup barking. Note we had small dogs with BIG barks (11 - 25 lbs.).
