I should think after your recent porch incident, a Rottweiler would be a pretty and convenient dog to have, Rose.

I rather fell in love with Sealyhams - do you remember that lovely poster in Kent (Sealyham) who had always had that breed. Labradors and Staffies are also usually lovely family pets, in my (very limited) experience. :-D

All of them :-D

I don't just think it is because they can't afford them.....there are a lot of nasty people out there, and then there are those who think they want a dog but find it is too much work.

Why don't you see if there is a local dogs home who needs dog walkers or helpers. That should get rid of some of your brooding to have one...and who knows, maybe you will find that you can afford one after all....or......that you don't want one after all :-)

All rescue dogs are vaccinated and spayed or neutered so there will be no expense there.

I want one, and can't afford it but I have ' self torture' session from time to time and look at the local Dogs Trust rehoming site ( online ) , it's only a couple of weeks since I looked but there are 17...underline 17! dogs listed just in that time. May be an indicator of how many people are struggling financially either in terms of food costs etc or having to work longer hours to stay afloat and just not having the time to look after a dog.

This isn't a post with a point lol, except perhaps to ask what kind of dog 'looking out of the screen' makes you go ahhhh ? :-D
