Default Need help picking out a dog

Want to get a dog but not sure what to get. Want something no more than 25 lbs., good house dog, one that won't jump in the pond all the time, doesn't slobber, hunting dog. Don't want a Springer or Cocker Spaniel.

I don't know of many hunting dogs that are under 25 lbs other than cockers. Other than the size issue, my dog Meg, who is a Mountain Cur, fits the rest of your requirements pretty well. She's fantastic in the house as long as she's had some exercise, had to be convinced to learn how to swim, and doesn't drool at all. Although she hasn't hunted (at least since I've owned her), that is the breed's main purpose. She's on the small side at about 35/37 lbs.

What do you want to hunt? Beagles might fill in the requirements you posted as well.

Hmm, wow that's tough. I would suggest...
-Basset Hound
-MAYBE Brittany but they can go up to 30 lbs.
-Jindo if you get a female
-Welsh Corgi
-Treeing Walker Coonhound, even though they get big, they are good housedogs
-Welsh Terrier
Hope this helps!!!!

English Cocker Spaniel? (I know you said no cockers, but I didn't know if you were referring two both breeds.)

I'm not sure you'll find that many "hunting dogs" under 25 lbs. Do you want a bird dog? Or something from the hound group?

Default Bird Dog

Would like a bird dog. Was looking at an English Cocker Spaniel. Saw one that didn't have alot of hair but the owner said he shaves it. Do they normally have alot of hair?

Any preference on what type of bird dog? My understaning is that spaniels are more for flushing out the game while a Brittany points the game. Are you going to actually hunt with the dog or are you just partial to bird dogs?
