    Quoted from PavBall:

    Thank you for this and some of the other good responses. I appreciate it. I will research the Weimeraner and the brown dog that I see it is related to.

    Don't go with a Weimeraner. They need to run more than any human can do for them. I have a neighbor that had a Weimeraner and he would get on his bike with a leash, but I always felt that seemed unsafe for the dog and still did not seem to be enough exercise for the dog. That type of dog can also be hostile to small dogs. My neighbor's dog almost killed another neighbor's shih tzu mix.

    Quoted from Jaybird815:

    Like any breed, it's all in the training. Mine was around dogs and people from day one and is an absolute favorite among the workers at the non kill shelter we drop her off at for the day, weekly. She'll lay on her back to play with the smaller dogs. They are known for the great temperament with small children and other dogs. Your neighbors sounds like it had some issues.

    They are a territorial animal by nature. Owning your dog with a shih tzu is not the same as having a strange dog come near your property. My neighbor with the weimeraner also has a cat that was not harmed.

    What about the exercise issue? She wants a dog that does not need a ton of exercise. They really need a lot of land to run.

    Quoted from TigerLaw:

    Just as an update, we are now taking a bunch of these different surveys and reading through the results closely. There is a lot of data out there and we are planning to take our time with this ten plus year decision. We did not know surveys like this were available online and they are all very informative.
    PavBall came to this group for the questions because we spend so much time on Pinside and know so many of you through here and the shows and what not.
    I'm also surprised how good of a match the surveys feel we are with schnauzers, basically any type of schnauzer or sub sec of same seems to fit us well.
    I am an experienced dog owner but this decision is ultimately PavBall's so I want her to find the perfect little friend for us.

    One question, why does Pavball need a dog when she already has you?

    Quoted from TigerLaw:

    We agreed no dog on the couch, we've already rethought that position. He likes it up here.

    You could always throw some old sheets on it if you are worried about it getting dirty.

    By the way, for those wondering what Megatron is doing right now, I took this picture under my desk 60 seconds ago (he comes to work with PavBall and me every day):

    He looks like he could use a cozier work bed.
