good "family dog" recommendation
We are looking to adopt a 2-4 year old medium sized dog from a rescue group.
Most important characteristic we are looking for is a dog that gets along
great with kids, with no aggression whatsoever.
Some folks I know are suggesting we consider English Setters, English
Springer spaniels and Brittany spaniels. As sporting dogs, they have a
reputation of getting along great with everyone. Others are saying that
these dogs are "high energy", need tons of exercise, are always "on", etc.
Are either of these breeds more easy-going than the other? We would like a
"mellow" dog...one that is playful but can calm down when in the house and
not always be looking for someone to play with it. I should also mention
that the dog will be alone for about 6 hours/day. We live on an acre (with
an invisible fence) so there is room for exercising once we are home.
I was wondering if anyone would like to shed some light on the situation.
