Breed IS an important consideration, but so is age...which I think is the biggest problem here. ANY puppy, as stated, is going to have issues being left in a yard and given minimal attention. However, adopting an older dog, they may not have had as much of an issue. I still don't think it is great for any dog to be left to its own devices, but a 5 y/o+ dog who is known to enjoy just hanging out and isn't high energy isn't going to be as bad as a young puppy of any breed.

So I would say researching both breeds you consider, and the amount of work a puppy takes. I was thoroughly prepared for a lot of work with a puppy and was STILL overwhelmed by how much work it was! And Quill was not a difficult puppy by any means.
