Default Finally!! My dad and I agreed upon a dog!

We both sat down and looked at dogs in my dog book, The ultimate encyclopedia of Dogs, Dog breeds, & Dog care. We were looking at all types of dogs, both small and large. But finally we both decided upon the Hamiltonstovare, I think it's a good looking dog. The book said that they were even-tempered, and they were a good size. Just wanted to keep you guys updated! Can't wait to get the dog!

Glad to hear about the decision. I never heard of the breed, are they rare?

Any idea on where you're going to find one?

I am not so sure, I never really heard of them either until I got the book. Here's some information if you want to learn more.

It sounds like the Hamilton Hound is rarely found outside of Sweden and sometimes in Great Britain. You might have to back up and consider a Harrier, one of the stem breeds the Hamilton came from.

Have you considered a toy poodle? But as far as far as the owner living in another state, sellers often shipped dogs via airplane to other states. I don't know if that helps any.

Too much of a hassle. My dad likes to meet the breeder and the dog also, Texas is a long drive for us. We live in San Diego. I tried searching for Foxhound breeders, (I am trying to get the biggest dog possible that my dad will allow) but had no luck. I am just going to settle with a Harrier.
