What breed would you recommend @garypagetwo ?
Please don't make a mockery of this.
Go with a Pibble.
Too cute! What kind you got and how old? Is that yours in your AV?
Gus is a 2 year old American Staffordshire Terrier.
Nice, are they an expensive breed?
They can be. You can drop a grand on one pretty easy.
Plenty of them out there for adoption for pennies on the dollar, though.
Do they have hip and breathing problems like Bulldogs or are they are a completely different breed?
I like Boston Terriers. I know they have breathing/health problems, so I'd probably never have one. But they're cool little dogs.
They can have hip problems but they aren't really prone to breathing problems.
They're a pretty rock solid breed health wise.
How kid friendly are those?
Very kid friendly. Mine gets mobbed all the time by eye pokers and ear pullers.
Is that the temperament of that breed in general or have there been cases where one snapped
They're as stable as any other breed, but a lot of times they're owned by people who have no business owning a poodle let alone a pit.
I don't really believe in dogs "snapping".
OP got it right. Great Dane is a lap dog.
