Which breeds of dogs?

Last weekend, a friend brought a rabbit home in the morning, she was happy at the arrivial of the little cute rabbit. However, in the afternoon, the rabbit began to have diarrhea and then dead. So sad. Little pets are so frail.

I myself never kept a pet before, but I am going to have one in these days. I would choose a dog to stay with me but I don't know which kind of dog is suitable for me. My budget is limited, lol. Since I am a tenant, little or middle size dog would be fine. Besides, I love my dog being cute and meek.

Could you recommend one or two?

One from a rescue. You need to understand your limitations, and be willing to make a lifetime commitment, just as would if your introducing a child.
How much time and activity will you be willing to commit to regularly? Willing and able to provide consistent care and medical needs? Willingness to put the animal first when your plans and housing needs change?

Don't let the perfect be the enemy of the good

Yeah, it's important to know how much time you will be able to actually spend with the dog, and how active of a person you are, yourself. I have a Border Collie (the kind of dog that runs around sheep etc.) and those need a lot of exercice - although that mine is pretty calm, so I'm a lucky person, haha.

If you would buy a puppy, you'll need to be around a lot in the beginning, to make sure you teach them to not pee inside and stuff like that. If you adopt a dog, that issue may not occur. And I think that if you go to adopt a dog, you can ask people who work at a rescue center what dog will suit you best - because they sometimes know the dogs and their individual character/personality pretty well.

You're right, that's a matter of taking responsibility. I'm an office worker, so I worry about my dog being alone at home during my office hours.

It supposed to be 1 hour at noon and after 7 p.m. at night. Okay, I will try it.
