Homeowner with a decent size yard. Yard will be fenced soon. Someone almost always home. Dog will be inside and outside. 3 children 10, 6 and 2. There will be a newborn next year. I don't care for tiny or very large dogs.

What would you recommend for this family ?

    Curly-Coated Retriever 100% match

    The curly is the most graceful and elegant of the retrievers, appearing longer legged and more agile than the others. It has an alert upright carriage, enabling it to mark downed animals easily, be they fur or feather. It is an active land retriever and a hardy water retriever, able to withstand the rigors of repeated retrieves into heavy thickets or cold waters. Its distinctive coat provides protection from cold and briars and is made up of a dense mass of tight curls


    I did a survey online lol.

    It also depends on how active your family is. If your more laid back, the something like a basset hound but if your a more energetic family a lab would be good.

    I've never had or known one. Just hear the horror stories. I looked online at the local pounds and one is full of Pitts. The one in the city... Coincidence ?

    Me either, but I selected low maintence, not up your butt, requires minimal daily exercise, good with kids, a protector but not a hunter/dominant protector (think not a guard dog) and minimal grooming, as well as good with commands and easy to train.


    Interesting looking dog.
