I have been doing some research for a future dog and I came across your kennel. First off, thank you for your dedication. You and your team's committment to these canine partners is amazing.
I am a awhile away from being able to adequately care for one of these lovely creatures, but am doing what I can to learn about them now.
My specific question is: based on your experience, which of your three breeds would be best for me (based on the breed generalities)?
I would be living alone in an apartment, but aside from work (LEO), I am very active outside, running daily, weekly hikes, or climbs. Frequent trips to backpack or camp. However I would like a dog that can also chill around with me inside when we are not engaging in an activity.
My intent would also to train this dog for personal protection and SAR (probably trailing). Also, I live in Arizona, so the winters are lovely, but summers can get to 115 consistantly. I have owned dogs before, so I am safe with them in the summer.
Thank you for your time and info!
