Was going to get a Newfie but the insurance quotes are a bit scary,average quote was £85,lowest £70 and highest £96.I have 2 chihuahuas and a 16yr old cat so even with cheapest quote my monthly insurance bills are over £150 a month for all of them. DH says get one anyway,DD2 says get a chocolate Lab(another breed we are fond of) and DD1 wants a retired Greyhound(but im not sure how it would do in a house with a toddler and several small furrys) everyone is argueing about what to do. I have always wanted a Newf but i have to say the insurance costs are putting me off a bit.I need a child friendly,small animal friendly dog that is quite large.Im not house proud as we used to have a smelly Shar-pei with long hair that shed everywhere. I miss having a big dog in the house,i feel safer with one as DH works away a lot. Any opinions advice please.
Thanks,i do expect insurance to go up each yr and i had factored in food costs etc,just hadnt expected to start from so high up in insurance costs. Thankyou Dracula,that came in at a much more manageable costs,looks like we getting a Newfie then,DD1 will just have to wait for her Greyhound
