    Hey guys, I'm looking for a dog suitable for me. I'm looking for a dog with a low-maintenance coat of golden fur with a black muzzle, not too big but intelligent. Can you suggest me one? (Not a Boxer, maybe a boxer cross)

    Happy now?

    I'm not really an expert on dogs, but I personally really like huskies. Though, they don't exactly fit your description... Unless you live in a warm climate, I'd suggest one of them.

    a goldenretriever might be something, my neighbours have got one, it's not very intelligent, but it's fur doesn't need a lot of attention. They are really average-sized dogs.

    Why should a furry's dog be any different than a normal person's dog? And why the specifications about how it looks?

    Hey, I'm one and I don't feel there's any such thing as the perfect dog for a furry.

    Well anyway, you should get a golden retriever mix, I should think. And treat it right.

    Dog tongues are not as rough as cat tongues. Also, they really like peanut butter.

    I think you are narrowing your field extremely with your needs. Plus, I have found that every dog can be intelligent if you train them from a young age.

    it sheds like crazy twice a year and needs to be constantly brushed to get the excess fur off or there will be fur all over the house
    the size also is a little large for the average dog

    Because a furry isn't normal? As far as the look, probably a bestiality turn on fetish while fur suiting. [​IMG]

    lol. I didn't mean it that way, guys. Stop twisting it.

    on topic: golden retriver cross? I hear German Shepherds can bring you Pepsi from the fridge too.

    This is why we can't have nice things.
    Just because you're a 'furry' doesn't mean you need to look for a dog that is suitable for 'furries'.
    As with the rest, please don't get one.

    If you do; Shiba Inu. Fuck the golden fur and low intelligence.

    Looking at your list
    • Low-maintenance
    • Coat of golden fur
    • Black muzzle
    • Not too big
    • intelligent
    Not sure of the breed but found this one that fits most of what you want (not to sure about 'intelligence' though, but definitely 'Low-maintainance')
    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    It's either a Shiba Inu or an Akita.
