The problem with this whole thread is that I don't have a dog yet. So my wife and I find ourselves researching breeds based on their liklihood of becoming a good monkey.

And all these dogs look so awesome in a hack.

That definitely isn't on the short list. I love them, but they shed massive amounts of hair.

Please consider adopting from your local shelters... You will be amazed at how many amazing dogs, even pure bred, are dumped. Former shelter dogs are usually so grateful they become amazing family pets. A good shelter would have temperament tested the dog prior to offering for adoption and should be able to describe the traits in minute detail, hence recommending a good candidate 4 hacking...

Rescues...

I don't go to animal shelters, because every time I do I want to take all of them home. I have a major soft spot for rescues. Growing up, all of our dogs were rescues. This time around though, I'd like to have a little better idea of what I'm getting myself into, so I will likely do a breed specific rescue. With miniature humans on our list of things to do in the future, I have figured that I'll have a stricter list of traits that I want in the dog, for the dog and the kids sake.

For instance, I've seen a Australian Cattle Dog herd a group of neighborhood kids. I thought it was hilarious, but apparently kids don't like dogs nipping at their heels. Note to self, watch out for herding dogs.

See how this goes?

I know what you mean... I used to be a coach in Miami then in 2002 I went to visit the Best Friends Animal Sanctuary in Utah taking my 3 rescued dogs with me in a VW bus, hell of a trip! Anyway, I ended up getting a job there and stayed for 2 yrs followed by another 5 in the woods of Northern California managing a dog sanctuary. While in CA my 3 dogs passed on of old age, so I split by bicycle for Costa Rica where I now run a nonprofit that works for animal welfare...
I am hack free at the moment, but ride a 150cc 2 stroke scooter and occasionally take a passenger also... the step thru design makes up 4 the lack of a chair...

Vespa & Moka

I am sure you will end up making a wise choice! Best wishes and safe riding...

P.S. Shameless plug: if anybody wishes to support animal welfare in developing nations, you can check out what we do HERE. Gracias!

Our old fat dog is a rescue.....we tried to do another rescue, but they wanted to come to the house, and did not agree with our leashing policies(we don't have one at the house) our dogs do not leave the property. no fences needed. Heelers dont usually leave their propery if trained properly.....I have been able to curb the heel nipping.....Old fat dog just started tackling instead
We tryed the breed spacific rescues as well, same prob as above. We are anal about about our dogs....Taking them fortheir shats and what ever they need(spoiled little Bitches)The puppy came from a breeder

My plan is to snag a sidecar and retrace the trip I did by pedal bike

SANY1085

(the dog did not come with me, I met the owner in Morelia, Mexico and we took the shot)...
Having a rig would allow me to bring my dog with me and detour to see all the places I could not reach because of energy/time constraints... I think it would be an amazing adventure... I originally had planned it for next January, but I am not there money wise yet. One day...
