    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.

    What a cute bulldog.................Get a Rottie, their the best, protective, territorial, yet big babies too, plus they are beautiful, as soon as my cat passes on, I'm getting 2 of them

    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

    Awesome

    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.
