Many of us are “dog” families. We love our dogs and we love all kinds of dog breeds here in New Jersey. Some prefer small dogs while others like large breeds. Some like sporting breeds while others like a cozy dog. Whichever type you like, we love our dogs here in the Garden State.
We had two dogs while our children were growing up here on the Jersey Shore. Max was our first and it was a wonderful Bichon Frize. Anyone who’s had a Bichon knows that he’s a fantastic family dog and his non-shedding coat is hypoallergenic, which is another positive. Max was the perfect size and temperament for our family.
Our second dog, who is still with us today, is Dexter who is a Malta-Poo. Obviously a mix of Maltese and Poodle. Again, their fur is hypoallergenic and does not shed. As you can see, we planned this “hairless” approach lol. He is also an excellent family dog and even as a very old man he is a cuddly pup.
This article is all about “friendly” dogs. pattesdujour.com recently posted an article featuring some of the “happiest” dogs for families and I wanted to share the Top 10 with you.
