Ok, so if allergies didn’t prevent it I’d likely have a dog.
Here are my top five breeds I’d choose from:
German Shepherd – they’ve very smart dogs but have unique personalities.
Rotweiller – powerful dogs and also a fair amount of intelligence.
Neopolitan Mastiff – they are huge dogs, but have a pretty good temperament
Chihuahua – They may be small but they’re all dog.
Pit Bull – Pits can be family dogs – it’s all in the training.
