If you’re on the market for a new puppy, you’ve probably been scrolling through adorable puppy pictures online, convinced each one is cuter than the last. But to really make sure you get the right dog for your lifestyle, you’ll want to consider their size, exercise needs, and personalities. Take a look at our dog breed guides to learn all about:
Take on these breeds only if you love outdoor time, and lots of it. These dogs can run with the best of them, and will fit right into your active lifestyle, like the Weimeraner and the Australian Shepherd.
