Default Need help choosing breed!

Hi all! I've been searching the internet quite a bit, looking at forums and such for ideas on breeds, and cross breeds.
I've gotten quite mixed reviews.
I was wondering if any of you could help me out.
I am looking for a breed that has little shedding, is a medium sized dog, and is a good family dog?
I am fine with crossbreeds and such, unless people really don't recommend them. I'm looking for all the advice I can get!
Thank you all!

Do you have/plan to have other pets?
What exercise requirements are you able to meet?

As Pops said an American Pit Bull Terrier or mix with that breed would be a great family dog, they are medium sized (40-50 pounds usually) and while they shed normally their fur is very short so less noticeable than say a Golden Retriever's or even a Lab's.

However they are not always good with other animals due to their original uses and require a good deal of exercise. however a 3 year old (or older) dog from the shelter who is already known to be good with other animals or has proven himself to be laid back would be a good option as well. By this age their full, mature temperament is usually already there so there will be no surprises later.

What state are you in (if in the USA)? I'll look around petfinder for all sorts of dogs that fit what you are looking for and PM them to you if you'd like.

We don't have any other pets, and we just plan on getting a dog.
We live in canada, and we will be able to exercise atleast 1-2 times a day.


We have been looking in the SPCA's, since if we can find a dog there a home, we'd be more than glad to.

And I will check out the Amercian pit bull terrier. You guys have been much help

In Canada somewhere without BSL I hope? I love bully breeds. Sadly I'm in Ontario.

Yes the American Pit Bull Terrier is banned in Ontario so if you live there you'll have to find a different type I'm afraid.

My mom has adopted most of her dogs and shedding is an issue with her. She looks for poodle crosses that have poodle like fur. It falls out in clumps and is easy to pick up and it doesn't fall out that much.
