Our next dog must be gentle. It's crucial. We had problems with a staffy X in the past, and I just couldn't own another. It would hurt too much. They're a wonderful dog, but I miss my Archie too much. Any staffy, boxer, ridgeback mix would remind me too much of him. Hub doesn't want a large breed, and I don't think a toy or small would fit in with all the kids, cats and other dog we have (English cocker). All my loved breeds are larger. So what's medium sized, gentle, good with people, and not going to need a 10km walk each day just to sit still?
