Question by graybear: What dog breeds are for owners?
I’m looking for a dog just for myself. I know some breeds are good family or really just love being around people. Which breeds would be content hanging out with just me? Of course I still want a friendly dog who will be sociable with I have over or people we meet on the street, but maybe one who’s a little more independent and doesn’t need to be around people all the time, you know? Thanks!

Actually, any breed would be happy with “just you.” There’s no specific breed designed for one person, two people, or so on. What you need to look for is a dog that suits your lifestyle: activity and housing for example.

If it’s just you-make sure you properly socialize your dog to family, friends and other pets so they’ll get used to other people too. If not, they can become apprehensive, overprotective and can get aggressive. Any dog will do that if not properly socialized. So socialization is the key!!!

    I can see what youre afraid of. Many dogs don’t do well alone all day and need lots of attention. Thoughs dogs do better in families due to there being so many people to take care of them. Socialization is important so they don’t get aggressive. Giving the dog attention when you are home is key. And lots of exercise!.

    Size? Coat type? Grooming needs? Energy level? Exercise needs? Trainability?

    More to a dog than it’s friendliness with people. If you don’t have any preferences and you’re willing to work with anything (even high energy shedders or total unknowns) then try going to a shelter and adopting. Otherwise pin down what you want in a dog and do some research – open a few books and check out:

    a retired racing greyhound!!!! (sorry, used to do rescue). they are large dogs (look scary to some), huge couch potatoes (DO NOT need a lot of exercise), and love people. there are rescue groups everywhere. just look up retired racing greyhound. or if you are in a city that has a racing dog park – they do adoptions at the track.

    good luck!
