Which breed?

I was just curious, if you decided to get another dog besides a Havanese which breed would you choose and why?

When we brought home our Havanese we had an elderly Lab. After our Lab passed away I wanted a second dog. MY husband wanted another Havanese but I wanted another big dog. We ended up getting a standard poodle. My poodle is larger and more active than my Havanese but they both have a very similar temperament. Both breeds do not shed, are very smart, have a low prey drive, love everyone, get along great with other dogs and animals, very affectionate, want to please and are just overall great family dogs.

My next dog in another ten plus years will probably just be one small breed, Havanese, Maltese or Toy Poodle?

How about you, what breed would you choose other than a Havanese?

Other than a Havanese I would probably want a Bichon, which is the breed I had before Molly.

If allergies weren't an issue, I'd love to have either a Boston Terrier or a Giant Schnauzer.

Your 2 are beautiful! I love standard poodles also.

I had Great Dane and Longhaired doxie I LOVED them and would have loved to get another longhaired doxie but couldn't handle their horrible health issues. I did a lot of research and chose a havanese because, at least on paper, they were all I wanted in size, non shedding, temperament and most importantly, health. So far Sophie has delivered in every area time will tell with health but hoping I finally get a baby who lives a long time and doesn't get all kinds of issues. I studied all the breeds I was interested in for years and a lot I'd love to have but again the health thing scares me. Sophie will probably be my last dog but if I were to get another one, I'd even consider a little mixed breed.

We had a Bearded Collie before and I still love them to death. They are like a big version of a Havanese, but hav grooming is much easier.

I haven't been on this site in a couple years but I remember your cutie, I see you have added a couple fluffballs. They are all adorable, how fun.

I wonder if you would have allergies to a Schnauzer, I know they don't shed?

I've always wanted a French bulldog but they are really expensive and have health problems. Plus they would be too heavy for me. I also wanted a Boston terrier at one time, but again they have some health issues. I've always loved pugs, but then again they are heavy, have health issue and shed! I was also considering a miniature schnauzer. My sister in law has those and I also became close to one that was an office pet where I worked. My requirements were a non-shedding breed, small enough for me to easily pick up, a breed that was considered not to have any major health issues, a breed considered to be intelligent and a breed considered not to be a recreational barker. So, those are the breeds I've considered and that's how I ended up with Willow!

I do seem to be allergic to them (Poodles too) though not as bad as some other breeds!
