Try some terriers they are really cute,
if you dont mind hairy dogs go for the irish setter lovely dog

I was wondering do we get GREY HOUNDS in india , not to race to have as pets definitely
There are native breeds similar to grey hounds, which are more suited to the Indian climate. The only thing is they like their exercise. I am sure you can get pucca grey hounds as well as I have seen them being raced in Punjab.

[SIZE=2]Try http://dogsindia.com/[/SIZE]

[SIZE=2]You may even find another breed you like the look of. Its amazing how many new breeds have been introduced into India over the last year or so. You can even buy Rhodesian Ridgebacks which was impossible a few years ago unless you imported one into india. Some of the prices for these newly introduced breeds can be high. Bull Mastiff etc can go for 50,000 a pup and it will not even be a "show quality" pup. For a show quality dog with a good hip score you can pay even more. If you contact any breeders make in plain to them that you are after a pet and not a show dog.[/SIZE]

Labradors are chuffers when it comes to food and can become quite fat if you do not keep good control of their diets.

If you can go for a Labrador you may as well go and get a Rottweiler. A well bred Rottie is a good all round dog. Great companion, good with children, intelligent & protective

GSD are great but I have seen a similar Indian version of the breed in Haryana. Its same stature but the colour is more like what the first GSD used to look like. Avoid white GSD they are not well developed mentally.

bigman, I am not flaming you, but this is a bit confusing...Please find the following from Wikipedia....:

Owners may acquire a Rottie for a family pet, but neglect to properly socialize and train the animal, resulting in a dangerous, unpredictable dog who makes the rules....
As a result of bad press, some German Lšnder put the Rottweiler on an index of so called "dangerous dogs". This includes Bavaria, Brandenburg and North Rhine-Westphalia....

Guys, we are not here to discuss the advantages and disadvantages of our favourite breed of dog. Please get back to the original topic. hot_rod has decided that wants only a Jack Russel Terrier or a Retriever. Answer only if you know where he can get one.

I bet you did not know this but more people are bitten by Labradors and Corgis (in the UK) than by Rottweilers. Yes as you say you have to socialise and train the animal and it is ok. But that is true of all breeds. If you do not train them properly than even a small spitz type dog can become dangerous. Poor breeding can also contribute to problems again during the 1980s this was a major problem with Rottweilers. But again this is true of all breeds. Poor breeding can result in a nutcase animal.

Any how getting back to the original post. Hot Rod have you tried contacting any of the breeders on dogsindia.com ? They usually can suggest a local breeder for you if distance is a problem. Also many newspaper classifieds carry adverts for dogs. If you buy from a breeder do ask to see the parents and see how they behave. If they are temperamental then walk away.

i just bought a pug about 3 months ago.
ridiculously cute, a lot of fun.
i was led to believe that they are lazy and not as playful as normal dogs because they are a toy breed.....i guess noone told my dog!

their prices are coming down now, a while ago it was crazy because of the ad.

u can get a proper bred pug for about 23k now if i remember correctly.
theyre really good companions, but for a dog with short hair they do shed like crazy.

Default Desperately Need a Dog!

I also desperately need a good dog.
Looking for one that can live a small house/ apartment without yard.
Will prefer small dogs that require less maintenance.
Only a companion dog .
Please suggest a good breed costing below 10-15k

Rahul - There are 2 breeds I will suggest you for keeping in a small house / apartment without a garden.

Beagle - They are smart, very cute and can be managed easily. Very intelligent dogs too.

Pugs - Very cute, not ferocious at all. The eys however have a problem with eye infection being very frequent.

I would suggest a beagle. Should cost you around 12k in Punjab.
