Hi! If you're looking to find a pet and you are still not sure do you want a dog or a cat you should just mail me what you want in your pet. For example if you have young children, you don't tolerate shedding all over your house and you love outdoors then a dog, a poodle or a Portuguese water dog would be a good match. You shouldn't get a cat because they are mostly calm pets that often don't like screaming-and-running-around-the-house young children.

That's it for now! Bye!

All about Australian Shepherds
Did you know that dog called Aussie isn't from Australia? They were companions and helpers to native Americans. Aussies are known for their smarts and loyalty. And their blue markings on their coat.They are friendly and affectionate. Aussies get along with cats, hamsters, well all pets you could own. They are fast and smart so they make a natural disc dog. But because of their fluffy coat they can be just like teddy-bears! Aussies are very healthy. Just sometimes they can get some eye issues. This is definitely not an apartment dog! So...Australian Shepherds!!!!!!

All about Afghan Hounds
Afghan hound is one handsome pooch! They have long, silky coat that comes in black, yellowish,brownish and mix colored. Afghans were first hunting and gun dogs but now they are fashionable pets. They are independent and stubborn and of that allot of people think as stupid but their smarts comes from their independents. They bond closely to their owners. Afghans are sensitive and loyal. They can even get upset after a family argue. Because of their sight-hound nature they need to run in an in-closed yard or park daily.For health just check that your dog's bloodline is healthy and free of eye issues. If your single than this is a good dog for you because Afghans usually bond with one or two people. but for grooming it's another story! Daily brushing and coming is needed. A bath and hair-drying can take up to 2 hours! So Afghan Hounds!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

All about Golden Retrievers
Golden Retriever, happy, loyal and loving! Great dogs, right? Yes! Simply called the Golden they come from the same place Nessie(Loch Ness monster)comes. You know it, Scotland! They were first bred to hunt and retrieve ducks from the lakes. Then when they came to America they became one of the favorite companion dogs. Goldens are known for "the smile" which is just a lower lip pricked up. Their personality is a breed characteristic. They are cheerful, happy and great for all sorts of families: young and old. Goldens are great with children, they are great for active families but if you live in an apartment you need to give this dog at least hour of exercise every day. But not a walk around the block, they need running and swimming so they are not the best dog in an apartment. Lifespan: about 12-15 years which is a lot for a big dog. They are #4 smartest dog on the planet so they are easy to train. But with all that running, Goldens can get some hip problems... So, here are the Goldens:

All about Pembroke Welsh Corgis
There are two types of corgis: Pembroke and Cardigan. Pembrokes are the most popular of the two. They are also queen of England's fav! Corgis were used for herding cattle, they are smallest and oldest of the herding group of dogs. Corgis are affectionate, loyal and loving. They make great family dogs but not with small children. Pembrokes are very smart and love to think so they mostly like to solve doggy puzzles. Very easy to train. Like most of athletic breeds corgis can get hip problems,and don't forget to clip the nails. So.....The Pembroke Welsh Corgis!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

All about Chihuahuas
Chihuahuas are the smallest breed of dog. They are cute and cuddly, but sometimes they suffer from Napoleon issue. That is when a dog thinks hes the leader of the pack. Ciwis, as they are sometimes called, like to be pampered not left alone in the house. Some people think: "Oh,Ciwis are small, they don't need a lot of grooming and feeding. So I'm going to go work 8 hours per day then when I come home I'm going to feed the dog and I'm going out to a club. "Well that's wrong. Ciwis need attention and training. Their small size makes them a good apartment dog. But if you don't exercise they get in the "bad mood". That is when they snap and bite (not a good thing). For health just some obesity problems so don't over feed them. Training is mostly easy, just some love and affection. Children are OK with this dog as long as they learn that Ciwi is not a toy. They get well with other pets, even the pocket ones. So......Chihuahuas!!!
