large dog breeds questions answered!

  • What large dog breed has the least amount of problems? My golden retriever just recently passed away of skin cancer. Until he was 10 he was in good health and had little problems with anything besides hot-spots. But my family now wants another of the large dog breeds, but something with little health issues. I know huskies and collies are good but Huskies have issues with separation anxiety. Are there any dogs that love family life, don't have really expensive issues, and also can fend for themselves if they are left at home?

  • Question for owners of large dogs. What breed of dog is the hardiest, yet basic to care for? My spouse and I are interested in obtaining a large dog (or two) in the near future. We would like an expert in knowledge of large dogs to help us decide. The internet and books are fine for instruction and knowledge, however, we would like an owner's opinion of what their large dog breed is like on a day-to-day basis. Just generally. Things like eating habits, exercise needs, shedding (or lack of it preferably), temperment, intelligence, etc. Thank you so much for your responses.☺
  • What large dog breed is the best? My dog died recently, and I'm considering buying another dog. I would prefer a large breed, and I would like it to be somewhat of a guard dog. Not mean, but protective. I've read good things about German Shepherds, so I'm looking into buying a puppy. Any comments would be appreciated, as I'm still not sure a German Shepherd is the right dog for me. I'm a huge dog lover, and I would have plenty of time for it. Please let me know what large dog breed, you think would be best for me!
  • What large dog breeds are considered "dry mouth"? I'm interested in getting a large dog breed, but would prefer not to have one that excessively drools.
