Dogs are among the best animals that a person could choose to own. They can hunt, guard your house, provide services (such as seeing-eye dogs), or simply just keep you company when you are lonely. All a dog needs is food, water, and love – for that, they will be loyal to you forever! You may want to choose a breed based around your current living situation. For someone living in a small apartment, a Yorkshire Terrier, Dachshund, or Chihuahua may be your best bet. They are small, won’t take up a lot of space, and need less food. These low-impact breeds are ideal for tight quarters.
However, if you live in a spacious residence, with a big yard outside, you may wish to choose a larger breed. These bigger dogs might eat more food, drink more water, and require more space – but they will love you that much more for it!
If you are considering adopting or purchasing a large dog – for the purposes of this article, we will define large as a full size of 60 pounds or more – you need to take into consideration a few things. First, make sure that the breed is one that you find beautiful and interesting. Next, you must take the temperament of the dog into consideration. Finally, you should consider any problems (health or otherwise) that may arise in owning such a dog. Lucky for you, we’ve done the work for twenty popular breeds already!
