Unfortunately most toy breeds are pretty fucked up in one way or another. A King Charles Spaniel or English Cocker might be a good choice. Stay away from American Cockers or Chihuahuas. Any terrier breed will have a propensity towards aggression.
>>3952500
They’re cute. That’s about it. Tollers were bred in Canada to look like foxes and run around the banks of a lake to make geese think their nests were being raided. This would trigger a defensive response and bring the geese closer to the shore where the hunters can shoot them. They’ve predominantly been relegated to show/pet status since market hunting was banned though. They’re small so they actually struggle to retrieve crippled geese, are notoriously hard mouthed, and notoriously hard headed. Not great traits for a waterfowl dog especially with labs and chessies being so common.

Goldens only stink if they catch a certain skin bacteria. If you regularly bathe your dog then it should be fine.
>>
>>3957359
dogs that stink have usually a medical condition. yeast infections of toes, armpits, ears; bad and abscessed teeth; impacted anal glands. those are common causes. dogs getting reated for ehartworm can/will start smelling like literal death as their lungs expell dead worm shit over their airway. baths can hurt a dog's microbiome if done too frequently with harsh shampoos. if your dog smells, go see a vet. then, according to the cause, treat it., eg impacted dog may profit from a more frequent feeding of raw meaty edible bone because it makes their stool harder which passively helps express the anal glands....

Herding breeds in general make great dogs, provided their owner can keep them exercised. Autistically loyal, driven, smart, alert, and cute.

Without good care though they become nightmares, which unfortunately ends in a lot of neglected puppers.

They really are. It's one of their best traits IMO. Mine wouldn't take any food from strangers (don't know how or when she picked it up). Either my wife or I had to take the food/pick it up and then give it to her before she would eat it.

>>
>>3958357
My neighbor had some kind of Australian herding dog and it was way too much for him to control I guess.

I'm a person who's already scared of spastic dogs but this dogs eyes always looked like he wanted to go over the fence and tear my jugular out. Bit my neighbor and his wife on the face three times and he had a baby so be put it down. He seemed like a nice dude but this dog was just wired like a wild animal. I don't think you can have a herding dog unless you have livestock for it to fuck around with and take it's aggression and energy out on.

You can, you just have to do something with them to get that energy out. Someone once told me if you have a working dog and you don't give them a job and establish you're the boss they will find a job and make themselves the boss.
I would run with mine around our neighborhood and do fetch along with teach hand/whistle signals. Also play taught her to "protect wife". I didn't intend it but it basically turned her into a guard dog of our property. I was not complaining though. She ran some nigger burglar out of the house when I was at work and my wife was home alone.

Like the anon said. You can have Herding dogs without working them. However, you absolutely must exercise them daily. I got my girl for free because her first owner couldn't keep up. There are days I want to yeet her off a cliff she has so much energy, but the key is exercising them regularly. For her we play fetch two or three times a day.

btw $1100 is expensive for an ES but thats my state. Borders, Aussies, Goldens, Huskies, and Samoyeds are $2500+ around here. if youre in Virginia or the Carolinas you can get them from a good breeder for $600-800. I think you can find them for $300 in the deep south.

>>
>>3961257
she said she was taking the necessary steps to get the sire UKC and ESC registered but I told her I didnt care too much about registration but I would like to know the pedigree. I dont plan on studding my dog out or having litters of my own to sell so papers mean nothing to me. only reason I'd initiate a breeding is if I decide I want to have one of his sons or daughters, otherwise she'd have to contact me if she or another reputable breeder wanted my by boys puppy batter for breed preservation purposes and then I'd have no problem with my dog getting some action. I trust this breeder because her dogs are in pretty much every ES line I ever applied to and her name shows up pretty much everywhere in the ES extended universe.

Portland is a cancer to the state. Even where I live got hit by the cancer, and now despite being well out of the Portland metro area we have to follow a bunch of Portland's shit (such as having our cars tested by DEQ).

The city doesn't even produce anything meaningful. It's just a black hole where products go to be consumed by a bunch of faggots. Other than Salem, Eugene and Portland though Oregon is a pretty good, welcoming state.
