    My girlfriend has been wanting a puppy for quite some time and I guess I'm going to get her one. She wants a lap dog, something that won't grow up to be big. If anybody has or knows about any puppies, please let me know.

    Lab's are great dogs. Here is where I got my Kaycie baby nine years ago and her picture is on the web site. Warning if you go look you will have to buy!

    tootsie- Oh! go ahead and buy one. Your husband can walk and let the dogs ride. Kaycie is in the puppy pictures as Kaycie from GA. She does miss running around on our previous farm in GA not much land in FL. Heck I am buying a large tract of land in KY just for her. Marcin is a great wonderful breeder of labs and I highly recommend her puppies. You can pm if you have any questions. I too want another one!

    Ditto, Petfinder.com has ANYTHING you want. 30,000 - 60,000 pets are euthanized in 1 county in various parts of the state each month. I don't have Bay county figures but I'm sure they're just as high. For every dog that's bought, another is put to sleep. Please rescue an animal. If you are afraid of getting a dog a the pound, then get one of the tens of thousands in foster homes. The foster parents are honest about behaviors of the animal and you know what you're getting up front. Sunshine was completely trained and has no bad habits other than she wants to be with me all the time but she is 1000 times better on that and dealing with

    There are puppies available too.

    Spence, buddy don't let your girl whip you like that.:lol: Don't you know what a "lap dog" means...Small, furry, yapping all the time piss and poop and little to no dicipline...I've got the scoop on a litter of black mouthed curs if you're interested (Free to good homes)...they are very clean and intellegent and love the ladies...geez - less IS NOT more...

    Not to mention that Labs are not good lap dogs unless you are Andre the Giant.

    Ditto. After rescueing two, myself, I will never select a dog because of the breed alone. Also, I will never buy a dog from a breeder, when there are so many great, loving dogs sitting in the Pound. Rescues make the best pets. :wub:

    I believe in rescues as well...we do have a Labrador, as my husband thought my son should have one and was afraid of a bad temperament if we got a mixed breed rescue dog. While our fullbreed is absolutely gorgeous, and very smart, she is MAJOR hyper and hence has become my husband's dog. And, labs don't make good lap dogs. In fact, they will eat your furniture so that you have nowhere to sit down and form a lap. :blush:

    If all else fails, I know where there are cute puppies free to a good home. They will be short-haired, probably 20 pounds at maturity. They are extremely mixed, small hounds, and I think the only ones left are tan. They are siblings of the two little guys in my 'tar, but a different litter. FULL DISCLOSURE WARNING - their sire and dam are brother and sister. But being mixed to begin with, I haven't seen a lack of mental agility and my two are just as smart as can be. And hopefully my brother will get his dogs fixed to prevent round 3...:bang:

    If a dog has 2 litters of puppies and you sell them for $10 a piece you would have enough money to spay the mom and pay for gas to the vet's office! Please encourage your brother to spay. I've heard that "free puppies" can be a magnet for abusive homes and shark fisherman.
    My dog (now fixed) had puppies once; they were purebred but had no papers. I was blasted online at a doggie message board and it made me realize how irresponsible having puppies can be. If your brother didn't have puppies maybe the people getting puppies would have adopted other dogs from shelters. There are never enough homes for dogs :sosad:

    Excellent suggestion Snerd. You are so right and don't forget kitties. They significantly outnumber dogs.
