Yeah East, it is a crying shame that they don't live as long as we do. My fiance is a vet and the one thing that she knows for certain from having to put animals down is that there is never enough time for the families. I am sure you can attest to that. Cheers - J

To me, this forum is about love of inboard boats. It is about the sharing of information and, on a good day, some humor. It is not about post count, brand of boat, or any other superfluous labels that lend themselves to a false sense of superiority. Please, respect one another, try to pass on accurate information, and keep your eye on the ball.

Have you ever considered a boxer? I have had 3 of them and they are awesome dogs for a family (one of the best IMO). They range from 60-90 lbs on average. They are gentle and protective around kids and very loyal to their owners. They shed very little and are very clean dogs except for the little bit of drool when they get done drinking water. My old dog would sit and watch me polish my Harley and work on my truck when he got a little older. They can be very hyper when young though.(what dogs arent?) Poor little guy would go into depression and lose weight when the military would ship me out, then back to normal when I got home. You cant go wrong with a boxer.

Sorry if this sounds like a sales pitch.(I am not a breeder) I just think that they are a wonderful breed and everyone should experience owning one.

I vote Rottweiler, we have had three. All very loyal dogs, the biggest danger to kids is they will knock them over. It is always a good idea to teach kids safety rules about dogs anyways, no matter which breed. The late Czar loved the water but our girls never did.

As luck would have it, I found my dog Chaz ( run #13) at the pound.
Pound dogs, have the most love to give.
Here's my ball cap to prove it.

A couple of things to remember: It is never a good idea to get a dog that is higher energy than you, and Jacks are VERY high energy. Dogs that cannot discharge their energy properly are more likely to develop behavior problems. Bad behaviour does not come from breed, but from lack of exercise (more common with high energy dogs because they need more exercise) and from lack of discipline. A dog that has a way to spend energy (playing in the yard is not enough) and has to follow rules will be a joy.

Keep in mind selective breeding can escalate chance of congenital problems such as hip displasia in German Shepherds and shoulder problems with Rotties. This is not saying it is going to happen, but because of development issues and genetics they are more common to each breed. Sometimes getting a mutt can decrease later vet bills.

I agree that a rescue will always have something special about them. Even older dogs if treated properly will adjust to a new home in just a couple days to a week. So if you want a lax dog maybe rescue older???
