5. There is a breed of dog called the Polish Lowland Sheepdog and it is SO CUTE. It's like a 40-lb old english sheepdog and it doesn't shed! I know that "they're so cute" is not the way to choose a pet and that for me, it's most important to get a dog who can be left alone while I'm at work, regardless of breed....but I'm thinking of putting myself on a breed rescue waiting list next year. Not a lot of them come up for adoption (I'm not really interested in buying a purebred dog and couldn't afford it anyway) so who knows when/if I'd get one.
