Hey guys, I want a dog. Enough time has passed since my family dog passed away, and I'm ready for a dog of my own. I live in an apartment. I'm a dude, but my penis is of above average length, therefore small dogs are fine. Shedding blows ass, as you know. Recommendations on breed and where to get a dog would be appreciated. I like bichon's, but they are expensive. Is it really a big deal to get a purebred dog? Doesn't every breed have it's health disadvantages?
