Ok, I was part of a similiar debate about 3 weeks ago, and this question came to mind, specifically becouse of how people were responding to something I said...so here it goes..
How do you decide what kind of dog breed to bring into your home? Do you do research finding out the best tempermant, best family breeds, dogs that are kid friendly...or do you just go and find a pup that looks cute and take a chance on the breed?
This goes really for any pet you want to bring into your family, but I am gearing this more towards dogs...becouse of the responces (of MANY) from a coment I made..I said something along the lines of "Chow Chows are an aggressive breed, and Pitbuls have aggressive tendencies". Now this question has been nagging me for quite some time....if you do not want to "stereotype" a certain breed, what criteria, if any do you use before bringing a pet around your priceless children?
