:-) Black labradors for the win, im having one of those atm and ooooooooh what an one sleepy dog that is, fun and friendly and can be used for hunting, and many of those are kinda smart.
Best pets are definitely ferrets! granted they smell abit but not so much once you have them spayed.
I had two of the little critters running around my living room for close to 4 years, like having kittens which never grow up and also funny as fuck. They also wouldn't leave me alone when I went to the fridge for a beer until they got some!
Had one that thought she was a lap dog, fuckin great dog. Used to wrestle with it when I was little and shit. Thing kicked my ass.
Best pet? A bull rabbit or a cat. Btw you can train your rabbit to use a cat litter.
I dont understand why anyone would want to remove the awesome off a cat to get it as annoying as a dog tbh.Siamese/Oriental Cat. Way more dog like than other cat breeds and less independant, they like to chase things and follow you around to see what you're doing, they greet you when you come home and will follow you from room to room to lie with you.
If you're gonna go for a dog and you like to hang outside, then the irish setter is your friend. This dog is using solar panels from the year 2200. He just wont stop running. He's awesomeface with kids and adults You cant get it mad and they have hair instead of fur.
I'm still hopping day will come and I'll find a job near or more close to work and will be able to get pet. Mean while I interview 100s of pet owners and went to shows and training ground. I even wear protection gear and work as target for dogs.
My choice after all of this (for my environment) is Airedale terrier or poodle. Both less mess because of hair. Both in hight tire of intelligence and obedience training. A little problem with Airedale is ... it dominatrix and if you are softy this kind is not for you.
Airedale is smallest service dog and it fit fine even in apartment so it my choice for all around good dog.
Intelligent, useful as guard and as therapy dog. Fit well in house, not messy, not noisy (very important for townhouse and apartment).
Poodle not a guard and barking too much but in all other thing superior.
ALL dog owners (that actually train dogs) agreed that pure blood breed are better for simple reason you will know what you get
I had a brilliant rescue dog that was an aussie-shepherd/shelty mix.
Purebreeds tend to have too many health issues.

Since I know for a fact that nobody listed Norwegian Buhund (I believe they're the best dog breed on the planet) go look it up, simps.
