    Default Indoor Dogs, What Breed Do You Have?

    Hi All

    Just wondering who has a mostly indoor dog and what breed? I am thinking of getting a dog when I move and he will be inside 8-10 hrs whilst I am working, but when I get home he will be able to go for a run or a swim down at the beach etc...

    I am just after ideas for a dog breed and wondering what people have now.

    I can't wait to hear from you.

    Thank you in advance
    Kristy

    Hi Kristy.......

    I have a very gorgeous Staffordshire Bull Terrier, Floyd is an inside dog as was my previous SBT "Zeppelin"

    I would like to offer a bit of advice & please don't take offense, please don't consider or get a SBT as they are a peoples dog & they live for us humans & thrive on human company. SBT's are well known to fret & are emotional basket cases if left home alone for long periods time. SBT's are very good at chewing anything to get outside & become "escape artists" if they are left alone for hrs on end.

    Wishing you all the best on your quest finding a suitable breed that suits your life style. I'm sure others here are way more experienced than me regards to other breeds.

    I have a Shar-Pei who is very sick at the moment. They are an inside pet, but very high maintenance, I wouldnt think they would really be suitable for someone just starting out, and if you were to get one, please please check the breeder out thoroughly. Entropian, very wrinkly faces usually mean they have to have their eyes tacked, for that surgery, around the $1000. Ears - tiny little ear canals that just love getting fungal infections if they arent looked after all the time. Very faithful dogs tho.

    I have a cross and a dogue de bordeaux.
    Despite being a giant breed DDB's need to be around they're people.
    Griffen has the most pitiful cry if he cant come in.
    But you have to be prepaired for the slobber on the walls and the couch and the roof hehe

    A friend of mine had two foxy terriers that were inside dogs, they kept each company while he was at work and they live inside very well.

    Perhaps a greyhound? Contrary to what you might think they are couch potatoes and would be happy with a walk at the end of the day. (Although as I understand it you have a cat? Greyhounds have to be tested with cats as they can get that prey drive from them).
