Such as the fox terrier breed, golden retriever, German Shepherd or Jack Russell Terrier, do not fit a man who loves home comfort and peace. Discard the hunting breeds, if you do not fancy a night without warm cozy sofas.
Do not take a security or a hunting breed, if you do not plan to seriously deal with her upbringing. Greyhounds, Rottweilers, Dobermans, beagles are absolutely not suitable for the role of the sitting dog and become real neurotics without proper training.
