    Greyhound greyhound greyhound! And if they're too big for you, there's always the Italian greyhound

    There are greyhound rescue groups around, GAP as SPRV mentioned, and I deal with Greyhound Rescue which is in NSW. We try to place as many dogs in foster care as possible so that we can assess them to make sure they go to the right home. I have 3 foster greys at my place atm.

    Umm, not sure if I can post GR's website?

    Thanks everyone for the replies.

    A slightly older dog is something I'm likely to consider because pups do need a lot of time and attention.

    Despite the many suggestions for greyhounds, I'm a bit reluctant to consider them. I'm sure they're great dogs with the characteristics I'm after, but slim looking dogs like the greyhound and shaved poodles have just never appealed to me personally.

    It's a shame that not much is know about the French Bulldog because I'm really attracted to the bulldog's dopey appearance. British bulldogs are also high on my radar.

    If I don't find anything, I might consider waiting the year out and looking for a pup before next summer starts so that I can spend lots of time training it up.

    I think the frenchy is a good choice, i'm starting to look at the Boston terrier as another dog in the future, they might suit you too.

    What about a basenji? I don't know much about them except they don't bark (they do a type of yodel noise) but I THINK they might be destructive I'm not sure.

    From what I know, Basenji's are very active dogs, and you need super duper fences to stop them jumping! They can be aloof dogs, but they are lovely dogs. I have only ever met one that came through rescue some years ago, we had to be careful about the home it went to, and of course we found the ideal home for it!
