i have a yorkshire terrior and she is the best!!! but out of those…… golden retriever… my friend has one, theyre sooo nice! haha
i’d suggest the golden retriever as they’re less loud, playful and all around nice ^^
them the long haired chihuahua.
pomeranians are adorable, but loud.
Go for the retriever! it’ll rally pay off having a doggy like that ^^Answer by Shazzii♥
Definately go for a Labrador, personally I think they are the best breeds God created.
From day 1 they will bow down to you, I had one called Sam, he never chewed up the furniture and he was one of a kind. They’re not too hyper or bouncy, not too rough and DEFO not aggresive, everything about them is friendly. Sadly Sam died a few years ago, it sure teared my heart up.
Chihauhau’s are nippy and bark alot, I wouldn’t go for one.
Retreivers are adorable, just like the Lab.
Pomeranians are okay…But they bark alot also and they’re hyper! If it’s any small dog I’d go for a Yorkshire Terrier.
Right now I own a German Shepherd, his GREAT but can get very vicious when play fighting, also it might be a bit too big for your mum 😛
Good luck withyour new puppy! I feel happy for you 😀Answer by lexie <3
i would say goldon. they are very very loyal. they trust their owners and will always be by your side. if your mom says no to goldon i would say pomeranian. if i was you i would go look up westies and border collies. westies are the cutest little thangs ever!!! they love to play and make great lapdogs. border collies are pretty much the same as goldons. they are very hard working and will do anything to make you happy. ive owend border collies for years and would never change that.

I say either the chihuahua or pomeranian.
Golden retrievers are big and they tend to get fat. I personally don’t care for them at all.Answer by Shark
You need to do your research very carefully, examining everything from energy levels, to grooming needs, to health concerns. Although you sound like a responsible young lady with a good head on your shoulders, you and your parents should sit down and outline what your perfect family dog will look like. How much time/money would you like to spend grooming your dog? How much exercise are you willing to give the dog? Goldens are in the sporting group, and they were bred to be hunters meaning they need LOTS of exercise (running, preferably). You also need to look into training aspects. Some breeds are known to be easier to train than others, and a poor-mannered dog can become a nightmare. The last thing we need is more dogs in the shelters. There are lots of resources online for researching dog breeds. Make your decision slowly and thoughtfully.
Finally, don’t discount a shelter dog. Dogs are not truly adults until the age of 3. Dog adolescence (6 months to roughly 3 years) is the time when most dogs are given up to shelters. Puppies are a lot of work (more work than most people realize) and shelters are overflowing with tons of dogs (including puppies, if that’s what you and your family decide what you really want) that would fit into your family perfectly 🙂
Good luck and keep those grades up 🙂Answer by OOKI
since ur 13 and assuming this is your first dog, a bigger dog might be too much to handle without the experience, it takes alot to own dogs, so i would suggest one of the smaller two.Answer by ♥ Blessed 3 times ♥
