We have a 14 month old who absolutely loves dogs .. my husband has had terriers (I don't like) and I've previously had springer spaniels (too big esp considering that although currently I've been made redundant and am at home I may go back to work - in which case we'd have a dog walker) - any suggestions?
So far we are thinking king charles spaniel, any other suggestions?
How about a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel...they are slightly bigger than a King Charles with less squashed faces. We have one and hes so layed back and gentle and really good with children. Also they are more robust as obv that bit bigger than the king charles spaniel so arent quite so fragile, which is good if u have young children!
OH MY GOD MmeLindt they are so cute. So cute!!!!!!!!!11
Saw a Cavalier King Charles today and fell in love with him. But my mum has just given me a big pep talk about thinking through the consequences (yes I am in my thirties, married, a solicitor, with a child!) and she may have a point. But puppies are so cute! oh fgs. Going to look at Maltese now too...just don't know what to do!!
Can I put in a vote for miniature schnauzers? We have one who has been an absolute star with our 2 (we had him before they arrived too). The only time he has ever even so much as done a low little growl is when DS1 sat on his head. Actually sat on it. I would've done more than a little growl!!!
They don't shed fur, are good with children (and anyone really), aren't very noisy, and they have a beard. What more can you ask for?!
My mum's neighbour has a yorkie. In fact this is the second yorkie that she has had. Bloody thing barks incessantly, drives us all around the bend. I don't think she walks it though, never see her out with the dog. Not sure if is the breed of dog or just the non-activity but that put me off yorkshire terriers for life.
