I'm moving out of my cramped flat and finally getting away from my horrible neighbours. I was thinking of adopting a JRT but they can be quite a handful with their energy. I thought about a German Shepherd but my mother isn't too keen on me owning saying that they're aggressive but in my honest opinion, dogs are only aggressive if they've been brought up the wrong way. So I will be adopting a staffy but one that's a bit older and is well trained because although I enjoy walking dogs, I get easily exhausted and my muscles and joints ache a lot after long distance walking. I have a Chronic Fatigue Syndrome aka Myalgic Encephalomyelitis but I reckon I was misdiagnosed and may have inherited Fibromyalgia as it runs in my dad's family and the symptoms I experience are the same as my grandmother's who has Fibromyalgia but I can walk for at least 30 minutes whilst stopping for breaks to rest my legs so I think 30 minutes twice a day would be enough for a dog and it'll be good for my benefit to get out and walk around 30 minutes twice a day. My mother said staffys can be very good for protecting their owners as well because I have been physically attacked in the past. I know martial arts but ever since I was told I have ME, my body has slowed down and my muscles and joints are weak. Last week I saw a group of greyhounds that need rehoming and when I socialised with them one became very fond of me. Does anyone have any suggestions or opinions on what type of dog would be suitable for me? I might be moving into a bungalow but it's most likely I'll get a flat or a house. I'd like a dog that'll be protective, playful but not too excited and doesn't require excessive walking just a minimum of half an hour or an hour twice a day and is very affectionate and social.
