I've had my dog, Charlie, for two years and I got him from the Dog's home (there is no better way to find your best friend in my opinion)!
At the dogs home I learned that breed has nothing to do with it - all dogs are all unique characters and I love meeting and looking after as many as I can.
I don't like to think of dogs shut in all day, so mine gets lots of walking a day - as would yours in my care (if they were up to it ofcourse).
Your dog would be in very safe hands and there are lots of local parks near my house if they didn't like going in cars. You would have no worries about your dog getting on with Charlie in the house, he is far more interested in humans than other dogs!
