Firstly, hello all! Sometime in the future I'm looking to bring a dog into our home but have no idea on the best breed so that's why I'm here. When I was younger, I shared my life with a sheltie and a GSD. I'm looking to get a small/medium breed which isn't yappy and is happy to sit at me feet as well as going for walks. A dog which is happy to go on the odd walking holiday is what I'm looking for, but not a dog that has endless energy like a border collie. General breed health is important. I don't want a breed which is susceptible to loads of breed issues. I'd be grateful for maybe your top 5 shortlist which I can then go and research more fully.
