Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
Wanted: One Dog-must love old people. Apply within.
Fairly recently my grandparents dog died and after a period of greiving, they find themselves craving canine companionship again.
The problem is they know absolutely nothing about dogs and are asking me to help them out in finding them a new one. I've put together a list of requirements that a dog of theirs should have, but I'm at a loss about what breed of dog best suits these requirements.
So far, the qualities I think a dog of theirs needs are:
Small size: since they can't lift a bigger dog easily to take it to the vet if they need to, I feel a smaller dog would make them more self sufficient regarding the needs of their canine friend.
Medium energy level or low energy level: being older, they won't be able to exercise their dog as much. I can and will help, but that's still a lot of time when the dog will not be running around.
Less fur: their last dog shed a lot, and they've pretty much said outright that they don't want that much hair on their next one.
Friendly: this one's for me also, since I'm going to be walking the dog and I value all my bits intact.
Could anyone suggest a breed or breeds that would meet these requirements? I've been looking at a few, but am open to any advice available.
