I strongly recommend checking with a shelter. Oftentimes they have foster programs where someone fosters the dog for the shelter at their house. Usually foster parents get a really good feel of the foster dog's attitude and temperament so they will be able to help you find a dog that suits you and your lifestyle. Plus, you would be saving a life!

Just remember, any breed of dog has the calm and laid back dogs, and the hyper crazy energetic dogs. Some breeds are more prone to one or the other, but there are always oddballs in the bunch. Just because a puppy acts one way does not mean they can not be trained or behavioral problems curbed.

If you want a laid back, quiet, loving, and isn't prone to biting then you may want to look into adopting an adult dog. Usually they are already mature, and what you see is what you get. Even better if the adult was fostered, then you can talk with the foster parents to get a good feel about how the dog will be. With a puppy its sometimes impossible to predict what they will be like when they will get older.

I have had nothing but mixed breed dogs and they all had very nice personalities and were actually smart. I would agree that you should look for one in a shelter.

I agree. Go to a shelter. Dogs only bite because the owners don't learn how to stop their dog from behaving badly. Any dog can be tought to behave large or small. Research dog behavior and training, use the knowledge and I guarantee you'll have a great dog
