I'm surprised we haven't gotten a dog yet, it was high on my list of priorities and my girl even works at a vet.

Dachshunds are the only tiny dog that I like, but quite a few of them get back problems shouldn't really be in a house that would require step climbing.

I'm not sure what we'll get, probably something with some beagle or lab in it, medium sized type dog.

And sure enough we got one today. It's at the house with the woman now and it will be waiting for me to return home from the gym.

This is what we got:



Pure bred female Rottweiler, 1 year old. Was given to us for free by an old lady who didn't have the energy to play with it and didn't like the dog's animosity towards her housecat (though it played fine with her small dog). This was taken a few hours ago on the pickup ride from the previous owner's house to our house.

Her name is currently Lexi but we're going to change it, Jada and Zelda seem to be our top choices right now. Seems to be a very playful and outgoing dog, hopefully this turns out well.

Must show wife this thread, she's a huge dog lover

When I met her they had 3 dogs at her parents' house - a lassa-poo (Bailey), a yorkie-poo (Howard), and a full poodle (Ralphie). When we got married Howard came to live with us. Very smart and well-behaved (except for barking at strangers and knocks on the door) and doesn't shed

Howard and his brother Bam-Bam from the same litter. Bams is more yorkie with a shorter nose and ears that stick up

My English Springer Spaniel. Most naturally smart and obedient dog I've ever had, by far. If it was actually MINE it would be pretty well trained, but it's my mom's and she spoils it and doesn't keep up on discipline. Still VERY well behaved, though.





Also, very athletic. She has a tremendous amount of energy if you take her on a hike, but if you're at home on the couch she'll just chill with you all day.

My aunt used to have a border collie that could straight up sail through the air like nobody's business. I would stand on the driveway at her house and throw the frisbee out into the yard, directly across a landscape bed probably 10-15 feet deep, and that dog would run and just fly right over it like it wasn't even there, not even touching the plants in the bed.

Heres my dog Buddy. Hes a rescue dog that i got from the shelter. Hes part Blue Heeler and part Australian Shephard and is one of the coolest dogs ever. He weighs a little over 60lbs and can jump over my 4.5ft tall fence with relative ease. He jumped over the back of my crx while trying to get a frisbee and cleared it by atleast 3' vertically and landed like ten feet away from it lol

so i've got a question. Is size the most important thing in getting a dog that will be good at frisbee (meaning that they have no problem catching it)? What dogs are good and what dogs are bad?

Alot of them are Border Collies, but there are also alot of Australian Shephards, springers, labs, Blue heelers and many more that love frisbee as well and can catch them naturally. Usually any dog thats fit and in the 50-70lbs range will be good jumpers and love to play. That, along with a little patience on your part is all you need to teach a dog to play frisbee.

His name is Rambo, he is a golden lab and pit mix, got him from the animal rescue about 4 years ago. My fav story about him: one Saturday morning the ex's mother came over to the house, they were going out together, about 9am I left to work, at about 10am they left shopping and whatever. The ex's mother walked in through the front door and didn't even close it, let alone locking it. They left through the garage and didn't notice the wide open front door. I came back from work a little before 6pm, as I drove up I saw my dog sitting right in the door way just looking out on the street. At first I thought that the ex was back and just walked in for a sec to get something, but inside my house there were some twigs, rocks and a bunch of leafs. I called and asked the ex when she left and if she been back home, that's when she said they left at 10am and did not come back. I realized that my dog Rambo had been sitting in the front door guarding my **** since 10am, that's 8 hours the front door was wide open and nothing disappeared. He earned all the dog food in the world in just his second year of life.
