Hi gang I'm a newbie here. My wife and I are thinking about getting a dog probably this fall. We'll be moving so that I can go to school full-time, but Em (my wife) would be home almost all the time. We currently have three cats, so we need to find a dog that won't terrorise our cats.
We're thinking that we'd probably get a dog from a shelter or rescue group. We'd like something medium-ish sized. Are there any specific breeds that generally seem to do well with cats? Any breeds that generally don't? It's my understanding that if we get dog that's young enough (still puppy-ish) and introduce the dog properly to the cats, things will probably work out. Two of our cats are fairly confident (if the dog harasses them, they'll promptly swap him), but we have one that is a little nervous. The nervous one did lives with dogs (GSD) before we got him though (all our cats are rescues).
Any thoughts? Any advice?
