These are some of the factors to consider when making a decision about which breed is right for you. With these points in mind, browse through the dog breed profiles and discover which dog will be a suitable match for you.
Keep in mind that large dogs are more expensive to keep. They eat more food, which costs you more money. Tick and flea preventives cost more for large dogs, as do other mediations.
Dogs can either serve as watchdogs or guard dogs or both. A watchdog s job is to bark and raise the alarm when a stranger enters your property. Their job is to warn you. Many small dog breeds make great watch dogs. Whereas a guard dog s job is to look intimidating and protect his family by keeping intruders out. Some breeds are great guard dogs but not great watchdogs. And vice versa. And a few breeds are both great guard dogs and great watchdogs.
Trust us, not all mixed breed dogs look like junkyard mutts (which come on, are pretty cute too). In fact, here is a rule of thumb: when one gorgeous dog breed mates with another gorgeous dog breed, the end results are -- wait for it -- pretty darn gorgeous. That is science, baby! Here are a number of wonderful examples of some of the most adorable mutts out there.
