    Size doesnt matter unless oyu are planning on having the dog in bed with you every night....if so, get a small dog LOL

    I have one of each (40kgs and 6 kgs) and there isnt a major difference. Only real difference is, when they are doing zoomies, if you get in the way of the big dog, you ARe going down!!!!!!! LMAO

    Menagerie -
    I have some holidays coming up, as does OH and we want to wait until then - mainly so we have time to visit rescues and that, but also to have some bonding time and time to practice the dog being home alone for shorter periods before we leave him for the day in the house with the cats! We also thought it would be helpful to save for a few months so we have a little put by for all the things the new dog might need - vacc, crate/ play pen , desexing (if not a rescue) etc.

    If it was up to me, I'd be looking now - I have seen many dogs on Petrescue that I would like to meet, but hubbie is trying to keep my feet on the ground - he's always so practical, its infuriating!

    Sorry. I wrote a reply, and as often happens, it won't accept it, but demands that I refresh the page, but how do I do that. If there is a refresh button, please tell me what it looks like? Otherwise, I push 2 or 3 buttons, swear a lot, and give up.

    I did write, perfect reason. Just you seemed to be straining on the leash, and you didn't say what the hold up was. I know what you mean, I keep visiting Petrescue, as I had wanted to rescue a 5 plus yr big male, but had to put it off, due to the 11 kittens I had to raise, desex and give shots to. Only managed homes for 8, and I give them away, so it wiped out the dog budget. I feel really low about it.

    To refresh press F5 on your keyboard or look for a symbol that is an arrow going in a circle

    There is one puppy that really caught my attention on the RSPCA website - but I doubt he'll still be around in 6 weeks!

    And another - a tripod, but so pretty!

    My older boy is a "Cattle X" officially. We think the "X" is maybe Bully and Kelpie. He's about 27 kilo.
    I knew I would end up with a working dog, because of wanting to get a rescue. BUT, he is pretty much a couch potato. Want to go for a 5k walk? He's in. Too lazy to walk, and want to lie on the couch and watch movies? He's in. He just wants to be with us, doing what we are doing. He was a pretty perfect temperament.

    Our pup (10 months) is also a rescue, a Terrier X - JRT & Foxy? Who knows. He has the energy of a 5 year old hyped up on sugar, and the stamina of a Kenyan runner. We absolutely must walk him EVERY day. Want to watch movies? Walk first. 5k MINIMUM. No slacking, no lazy days. He is only 9 kilo, but he is the BOSS!

    It really all comes down to personality. Really. I think size is irrelevant. On a side note, I wanted a rescue greyhound, but OH wouldn't go for it.

    I think we're just gonna go looking at dogs and see which one is "the one". The only problem with that is I can't get any stuff for it, not knowing what size I'll need. So, leads, collars, beds, crates etc, will all have to be bought when we get the dog - which means I can't save money by buying on ebay!
