Karen.........I'm kinda partial to the Australian Shepherd, a smart medium sized farmdog. Australian Cattle Dog aka Queensland Blue Heeler is a shorthair breed. There's a lotta good dogs and dog breeds out there and with the internet and a search program you can be really overwhelmed with breed information.
I'd like to put a plug in for the various purebred dog breed "rescue programs". There are some really dedicated people that rescue "their breed", clean 'em up, evaluate 'em, even retrain 'em. The're mostly adult dogs by now and so you'll get an idea how big there gonna be AND the're housebroke, not like puppies. AND most of 'em are "free" and greatful as #ell too. But don't be surprized if'n they tell you "that dog" is not for you, the're usually right too.
Yeah, you can rescue a mutt outta the pound, but remember the breed rescue people usually have first choice. Its a good deal for everyone........Dell
