Help Wanted: breed choice for a family

Post by Dave Wrigh » Tue, 05 Aug 1997 04:00:00



I need some help.

We are  family with two boys (ages 9 & 12), live in a fairly small house
on a fairly large suburban lot, with fenced in back yard. Considering
getting a puppy or dog. I am looking for recommendations. Have an open
mind at this point.

An aquaintance has (and recommends) a Bichon Frise (sp?). I don't want
to be flamed by Bichon owners, but I have heard some negative things
about them such as, very hard to house train, are prone to genetic
problems, must be brushed daily and are very yippy. Any truth to these?

Please respond via E-mail.

TIA!
