Think about what actually having a dog really involves.  Feeding, training, walking, vet fees.  Unless you are going to be a committed dog keeper @helen_starkey, I would advise against.

The fault, dear Brutus, is not in our stars but in ourselves.

Hey,if you are thinking about your first dog,i can advice you these breeds:goldendoodle,american cocker spaniel(but he will be jelous if you have other pets).Click for more about food Royal Canin is great choice,cause they have special food for every breed,considering their sensitive stomach or needing in special supplements.

They are not a breed, they are crosses.. As such, advising on any mix does not really work as there are such variants from the breeds (unethically) used.. Those variants are pup to pup within a litter, let alone litters as a whole. 

I do wish people generally would stop proffessing to be experts on such things when its just not possible to be.

I debated getting a dog for ages finally got one and now have 3 all Staffordshire bull terrier and all are working dogs, and have not regretted a day of having them, but my only advice would be make sure I get a bread to suit your life style as the are a lot of work and do lots of research into owning and breads as all dogs have different requirements, also if you get from pup look up all training as it's not as easy as it seems but at the same time it's so rewarding thou rescue is just as rewarding. But if u do get one you'll enjoy every minute of it  and you'll have a new friend for life. Go for it

i have a chihuahua they got such a massive heart she puts her mummy before even herself even if it kills her . x i love her so much . x depends on what dog suits you as a chihuahua suits me shes small . playful . very inteligent . and she was very easy to train . and doesnt need walking as much as the biggger breeds .

Always had a dog growing up. We had a corgi called Ted. Best dog ever. 

 

Its a big responsibility having a dog but if you know you can provide a good home then why not. 

 

We currently have a cat who is nearly 15.  He’s probably the most popular member of my family lol 😻.
