I have 2 cats but we want a dog- you seem to know about em what dog breed would you suggest?
I am greatly flattered you have asked me this question - I am terrribly biased but I've had cats too and can understand your question. My best answer would be (from experience) that I rescued a 9yr old female Collie Cross when I had 3 well-established territorial cats of ages ranging from 7-12yrs and the rescue girl, Jilly bonded with all 3 cats within days, as did the cats with her! A lovely miracle.
It is great that you are now considering a dog - would you consider a rescue? I only ask as I would definitely do it again, as it is so worthwhile and rewarding on both parts. Cats are great but as I discovered, the bond with a dog can be so, so much stronger. Please have a serious think about this option.
If you are going for a pup, make sure you know where it is coming from. I don't want to preach but puppymills abound and you should ensure you don't buy from cruell/illegal sources and unwittingly perpetuate puppy mills.. If you need to know more about why you must know the origin of your puppy, please read my post on my site, which is wholly factual and terribly upsetting.

As for the low down on good breeds, I suggest you visit fellow hubber Whitney05 who has several articles on how to choose the best dog breed for you.Big tip, not a Westie, as I have, they don't share your attention or affection - they want it all! Westies are gorgeous but my little Dougie wants me all to himself - my mistake, I should have got another dog at the same time as him, such as a Collie!
I once had a Cocker Spaniel called Lovejoy - he got on well with my 3 cats too and was around when I rescued the Collie Cross, Jilly.
Let me know how you get on, I'd be interested.
I think it depends on the disposition of your cats as well as the breed of the dog. I have two who both really get on great with cats. They like to play and sometimes, just hang out.
I have a Brittany Spaniel, and a Shi-tzu Poodle mix. Based on previous dogs, Spaniels are easy going and very family oriented.

Why do Labradors love water more than any other dog breed?Out of all the dog breeds I have had over the years, the Labrador seems to truly love water and jump right in. I know other dog breeds love it too, but it seems the Labrador really loves water. I wonder why that is for that...

I have had German Shepards, mixed breeds, and more recently a Siberian Husky and Shiba Inu. So far, I am most impressed with the Siberian Husky. She has the nice spitz look, is a nice medium size, and absolutely loves people. When we go on walks she always likes meeting people and gives them her...
