I totally want one of these little guys and thought maybe I'd ask for some advice before making the committment. If you have one, what have your experiences been? Also, I've read to not buy my new friend from a pet store but rather a reputable breeder. How do I find one of those, exactly?

Salmonella is not a reason not to have a pet, it is just a reason to wash your hands. I would prefer your Leonberger, but lots of people are happy with different pets!
Salmonella is the reason why some suggest it is safer to buy from a breeder than a pet store. I had iguanas for a while, so I do know the dangers.
I would worry about the salmonella with kids because they spend so much time with their hands in their mouths. I had Red-Eared sliders as a kid and never had problem so I guess you are right Dr. Mark.
