    What Amargith said - we need to know more about your lifestyle, living circumstances etc. I have 2 dogs, a 6lb miniature dachshund and a 30lb crossbreed. Both are wonderful, the doxie breed especially is noted for being very suitable for apartment/urban living. She loves long walks but she doesn't *need* them. Once around the block is enough if I'm feeling lazy.

    Don't underestimate the effort needed to raise a puppy. They're cute as hell and well worth it, but it's almost a 'lite' version of looking after an infant. They need almost constant attention, bathroom breaks etc., and there is a learning curve. You need patience to do it right.

    Anyone considering a breed like a Husky in an urban environment is either nuts or a long distance runner. Huskies are fiesty, independent and they have an ingrained need to roam and be free. Most would be unhappy in a city (especially a hot one) without a LOT of hard exercise.

    Lastly...please consider a shelter dog! If you want a purebred you can find them easily through breed-specific rescue as well. Try Petfinder.org to see dogs in shelters all over the country - you can search for specifics. My crossbreed was found on Petfinder as a puppy. She had been found in a garbage bag on the side of a highway in Kentucky. She is now a sophisticated Montreal dog who is absolutely spoiled rotten.

    Yeah but that's the thing, Beat. You need to check that you're also the right owner for the dog
    You mentionned work. I presume you work fulltime? Do you go running actively? Do you have any other pets? These and many more questions are important when selecting a dog. If you get a breed that's extremely easily bored, like a husky, your couch will not survive while you're at work. If you get a Jack russel coz its small and cool, you'll have another thing coming if you don't walk and play with it constantly as it is build out of solid muscle mass and is pretty much an energizer bunny. If you get a bulldog and wanna go on long walks..you might get disappointed that your buddy can't keep up. Surf some more. You'll find some great sites on the internet about this

    Yep, Aussies are awesome.

    Btw, my little doxie gets a LOT of female attention. I am generally surrounded by mobs of young women everytime I take her out - she gets passed around and fawned over by everyone. Men prefer my crossbreed, it seems.

    I want to go purebreed and I was never considering huskies. Sytpg brought them up but I consider them to be one of the bigger type dogs that I'm not looking to have.

    Lifestyle:
    Shoot... It'll be typical student/part time job/come home and chill/spend some time out on the weekend thing. Maybe I can't pull off raising a puppy living like that? :/
