    Sorry to the OP for derailing the thread so effectively...

    But I'm doing it again... I actually know a lady whose eyeball came out! Her GSD jumped on the bed and pawed at her face, and out it came! Hanging down her cheek! Ewwww! It stayed back in though after a doctor fixed it and she wore a patch for a few weeks.

    Back to breeds again...

    Nothing low maintenance about beagles - lots of work there.
    Low maintenance = Greyhounds, Borzoi (some brushing involved, not much), any large lazy sighthound - Irish Wolfhounds, Deerhounds etc. Even Whippets (sort of).

    So where did the OP go? What did the breed quiz recommend...

    I hate hit and run posters.

    Im quite interested in the Borzoi, theyre intriguing. When you say low maintenance, do you mean in temperement etc? Also, how large are they in real life? Its hard to gauge from pictures on the net

    Here's an idea,

    why don't you have a look at the breed section of the forum, a couple of years ago I posted information on each breed in the section which consisted of their temperament, exercise and how demanding they are etc.

    That was under my other account Luvdogz24 7 which I did not activate properly and it was with my other email which I don't use anymore and forgot the password to the email. I can log onto Luvdogz24 7 but that's it as I didn't activate properly, it was different back then.

    Easy to live with yes. They are like a greyhound. That is, laid back and easygoing. They don't typically jump fences (usually four foot is more than enough), chew things up or dig lots of holes. They do sleep alot, climb in your lap when you sit on the ground, and love going for a half hour walk or run at the local park if you get a chance, otherwise a good game of fetch or tug of war in the backyard is plenty - then they go back to sleep.

    We have crossbred rescue dogs with us every now and then and are always amazed at how full-on the average dog is... ours are big and beautiful but very easy to have around.

    They are also more devoted than I ever expected before I actually owned them. They have a passionate devotion to their people, and they rest their head on you and look up at you with big dark eyes that melt your soul...

    And yes they have coats, but they need little attention. Seeds don't stick in them, although sticks sometimes do in the long trousers or manes of the males. But they're easy to see and take out. Otherwise a bath and brush every month or so keep them in beautiful condition. Overbrushing breaks their coat and wrecks it. The less you fuss with them the better they look!!

    The only challenge I ever see with them is occasionally the young entire males will push their boundaries and try for dominance. They really only need to be sternly spoken to to be pulled into line - they can be a bit cheeky. But I think it's a testosterone thing and not necessarily a breed thing, undesexed males in any breed need careful mangement sometimes.

    Oh, and size - upwards of 31 inches at the shoulder for males, an inch of two shorter for females.
