I am currently looking to adopt a dog and I am torn between three breeds: Doberman, Labrador, and German Shepherd. I live in a house with a small yard and have a family with two children. We have had a dog before, but it was a small breed and unfortunately passed away due to old age.
I am looking for a dog that is good with children, protective of the family, and easy to train. I work from home, so I will have time to take care of the dog and give it attention. However, I would prefer a breed that is not too high maintenance, especially in terms of grooming.
I have researched these breeds, but I would love to hear from fellow dog owners who have experience with them. Which breed do you think would be the best fit for my family and lifestyle? Any advice or tips would be greatly appreciated! Thank you in advance.
