I really don't have a specific breed in mind to be honest and was hoping on getting some suggestions from some of you. A few breeds that I am interested in are Beagles, Boxers, Labrador Retrievers, & German Short-hair Pointers. Do any of you have these? If so, can you give me some pros/cons of them. Also, if anyone has ever adopted a dog, how was your experience, should I know anything beforehand? We already have a small dog (10-13 lbs) that sort of gets intimidated by larger dogs, but the more often she meets them, she warms up. I saw this guy on PetFinder and am awaiting an email/call back.
