i would suggest a dalmatian if you are loving, affectionate, caring,active and good tempered. they are by far the best dog breed but you may also want to consider a golden retreiver or if you would like smaller breeds you should go for jack Russel terrier or the medium sized German shepherd or border collie.

Not all dogs act the same way, even if they are the same breed. I would say to look into the Toy Group, Non-Sporting Group, and Terrier Group. If you active,as you say, a good breed to look into are Jack Russell Terriers.

AnswerIf you are looking for a bigger dog that would be as active as you go for a Lab, Golden Retreiver, or Labradoodle I know these dogs love to run and play and swim and they have a lot of energy!!

I would suggest a BOXER DOG because they are very very active and loving and caring and they love to play and run around!

Ok, for a smaller breed I suggest a Jack Russell Terrier ( I believe they are now called Parson Russell Terriers?? I don't truly know) but I own a Chihuahua Jack Russell mix and he can be outside for hours and I might get tired but he seems to have boundless energy. A larger breed that I know is very great and has a lot of energy is the Vizsla they are very active dogs and are very good as long as you give it enough excerise. But I think a Jack Russell is best because as you said you're in an apartment.

i would suggest a cavoodle because they can be active, and sometimes the dog could be quiet, and just reat. my cavoodle dixie is a very good dog. she will go for a run with u, and she will also sleep on the end of your bed. cavoodles don't need that much execise and are fine on their own ( as long as they are toilet trained ).

Answer:If you live in an apartment but you still want an energetic type dog, I'd say adopt a

-larger Chihuahua (Chihuahuas are supposed to be small but there are many out there that are slightly over-size. If you want a good companion and not a show dog they are great dogs to have.)

-Westie... Happy, curious and somewhat stubborn. If you have lots of time to train them they're great dogs. You should also note that a regular groom is necissary.

-Italian Greyhound... love to run & Chase... Are gentle, sensitive, devoted little dogs, are often times reserved with strangers but demonstrative with their family :)

-Toy Poodle... Pert & peppy, Very easy to train, are alert, playful, lively, sensitive, and eager to please. They are a good dog breed (unfortunately I've neve had the pleasure of one owning me) Only they also need a regular groom.

Depends on what kind of dog you're looking for. The Drentse Patrijshond is very active and needs to go to the forest. He can be stubborn sometimes but every dog can be.
