Default The Right Dog for Me

I need some suggestions as to the right breed for me. My husband and I are
moving soon to the Southwest, probably the mountains of Arizona. Temps
there range from single digits in the winter nights to nineties in the
summer days.
We will be living on a small ranch with horses and perhaps chickens. We
also
will have our cat who is moving west with us. She's an elderly quiet
ladylike
cat. Our previous dog was a collie who lived to be fifteen. We didn't
replace
her because we've been talking about moving for several years. We've
finally
bit the bullet and put the house on the market.
Anyway, I want a companion dog, one that will be inside at night and outside
with me during the day. A dog that will sit quietly around while I'm
working
horses or cleaning the barn. A dog that gets along well with other animals
and a
variety of visitors. I don't want a really small or toy breed, I don't want
a
really large breed, although Bermese Mountain Dogs do sound intriguing.
I also want a rescue dog, I do not want a puppy.
I may also consider getting two dogs, one a smaller breed for a house dog,
one a larger breed for an outdoor dog. We will have either a fenced yard
or put in an invisible fence.
One of my pet peeves is people who get dogs then allow them to run loose to
terrorize the neighborhood. I live next to people like that!

Sue
