    Arrow Help me choose a dog PLEASE!

    I'm buying a dog soon. I have a 4 bedroom 1 story house with a midsized fenced-in back yard. I want a dog that will grow to about 120 lbs. a little bigger or smaller is fine. I want a muscular dog like an Amstaff, rottweiler, boxer, Giant Schnauzer, or bull mastiff. I'd prefer a dog that doesnt shed a ton, only because i dont want to be cleaning hair all the time. I'm not a first time dog owner so i know there will be hair, i just dont want excessive hair (like from a German Shepard) I appriciate any help!

    oh btw, for those of you wondering, the reason i want a muscular dog is for security reasons. I'd feel more safe having a good guard/watch dog around the house. Especially (being a fireman) when I'm not home some nights.

    TOTALLY go with a boxer!!! Im serious, when you get them as a pup and train them well they are a very loyal dog, great with kids and protective as well.
    I'll be getting one once I get 1000$ and a new place that allows pets.

    boxers dont get big. Maybe 85 male 70 female.

    Rottweiler's get big for males but u have to train them and eventually break them. PLus they shed.

    You didn't list them, but I've gotta put in a vote for a Doberman. They're the only dog I'll ever have! They're smart, excellent for protection (it's what they were bred for), beautiful, and contrary to the opinion of many - great family pets. Right now I've got two Dobergirls ... they are perfectly gentle with my 2 and 3 year old boys - who push, pull, and tug all over them. At the same time - whenever someone approaches our gate, you know they'd fight anyone to the death

    Hire a cop to watch the house. It will be cheaper than owning a dog and the cop won't crap all over the place.

    Go with the Amstaff. They are great dogs. I have a 3 1/2 year old male named Bob. He is muscular, and protective; yet is just a big baby himself. He does shed a little though.

    No Jen, that one isn't mine. Maybe someday I will own one though. But right now, a boxer would eat my little doggie...
    You can see mine in my gallery photos Jen. That is my baby, and couldn't be any more spoiled. All she has to do is show those eyes of hers and she gets whatever she wants

    And as for broccoli, my dog loves it. I just make sure I feed her very small quantities for a treat . She also loves toast. She has to have her toast every morning with me. If she just hears the toaster she comes runnin
