Dadpad - Sassy was a beagle / jack mix that we rescued. She was the only one left from a litter, found on the side of the road next to her siblings remains after coyotes got them. Sassy was the best name for her! She's the one that pee'd on Bears foot cause she wanted his attention while we were talking.
She also had an underbite, so she was always smiling. She was great. I'd be willing to go with a Jack Russell or mix of one again. She was a feisty gal!
Msolga - I love the pictures, too. Farmermans link has some great pics. I'm definetly going to the shelter, not a breeder, and any age will do as long as they aren't too old to keep up with Cub. It will really be his dog, so it has to be one I like and he loves. I'll fall in line no matter what the breed, as long as it isn't a rot/pit/chow kinda dog I can't trust. Yeah, being at the shelter will be dangerous for me knowing we have to pick just one.
Farmerman - Thank you for the link. A stroll through that website was a great way to start my day!
