DIckymint question

    So I'm looking to get another dog and already have a presa canario x Staffordshire bill terrier bitch who is well socialised and trained etc. I'd love to get a similar x breed but I do worry that they'd be more prone to fight and I have 4 kids so this is a concern to me.
    I'm wondering if there is a particular breed that would work best with my beautiful mongrel :)

    Any suggestions anyone?

    A dog that is NOT genetically predisposed to dog aggression is the safest bet with kids and your current mix. You want a large, medium or small dog? Active or chill? Fur (sheds) or hair (needs grooming)?

    Medium to large dog that doesn't have huge energy levels but is capable of long walks in the mountains. Not too bothered about the shedding tbh. A good sturdy well rounded x breed is my preference but it's not easy to find much info on xbreeds

    Although certain breeds were bred to have certain characteristics to perform the jobs they were bred for, not all are born with them. So even if you go for a usually super friendly low energetic breed do not be surprised if the dog is the polar opposite. They still have their own individual personalities. Good luck! Please keep us posted if you do expand your family. :)

    +1 on this!

    The real question is, if the new dog does become DA (dog aggressive) are you equipped and prepared too handle it? Plus the new one might not be DA at all but the current one might.
