    Ok I have decided im going to get a dog, I live in an apartment however there is a park in front, I have very short working hours at uni and I run my business from home mostly or my girlfriend is at home and I can afford to take care of it.

    I fell in love with a Maltese around the corner so I am looking for one of them. Should I get a boy or girl? Anything I should know about this dog?

    I would rather give a home to an adult however I don’t think I will find one and I want this specific breed.

    lol that’s what I used my ex’s dog for however unfortunately I have a girlfriend and she is probably the last one I will have ;)

    but really if you have a small cute dog you have no idea how many girls you can get with it.

    :/

    If you want a toy dog, get an Aibo. You aren't Paris Hilton.

    Are you?

    Fashion/gay dog " accesory" imo. Get a real dog, at least mid sized...Beagle or something.

    By saying toy dog I was just Referring to something small.

    I wanted something that does not shed much and something small because I live in a apartment in the city.

    I really like Beagle's however I cant have a Short haired dog

    Due to wanting a low/non shedder I think you are going to be limited with apartment suited dogs. The following would probably fit your needs:-

    Bichon Frise
    Belgian Griffons
    Shih-Tzu
    Toy Poodle
    Maltese
    Chinese Crested
    Bolognese

    Out of the above we have had a Bichon Frise and a couple of Shih-Tzu as family dogs and if you can get past the whole 'girly' dog image then both can make great pets.

    Just read your thread out to the GF and she said if you want a laydeee magnet you should get a lab but upon showing her the picture she replied "awwww oh yes that'll do the trick" :D

    I have a lab/dalmation cross who is clumsy as they come but lovely all the same. But she picked the misus when we were looking for a adoptee

    Personally I'd love a Siberian Husky, a manly dog that you can get lots of laydees with some of these

    ditto. Small dogs tend to be really vicious and ratty (Paris Hilton's dog..). I remember seeing this real macho man in the park walking his dog, and it was a white poodle all done up with bows :eek: . What an odd couple!

    Maltese? I hear they're the lighter way to enjoy canines.

    COAT!
