Medium-size Dogs

Naming them all?

There is a great amount of medium-size dogs, and if we counted with the addition of mixed-breed medium-size-dogs, naming them all would be a too ambitious task. Despite of this, we can name some of the medium-size pure-breed dogs that can be more easily founded at places such as pet stores or shelters.

A small list

Among the most known pure-breed medium-size dogs you could find there are: the Standard Schnauzer, the Siberian Husky, the Poodle, the French Bulldog, the Dalmatian, the Bull Terrier, the Bulldog, the Brittany, the Belgian Sheepdog, the Basset Hound, and the Collie, among many others. All these dog breeds show different characteristics as well as each different dog within one same breed would also have his own peculiarities.

Some shared characteristics

Many medium-size dogs would often present some similarities with others of their same breed. This way, you can choose your medium-size dog according to which group they belong: a hunt dog, such as per example a Basset Hound or a Brittany; a sporting breed, such as per example an American Cocker Spaniel; or a Herding breed, such as the Belgian Sheepdog.

Before choosing one

Just like it would happen with any other size of dog, before choosing which medium-size pure breed dog will become the new member of your family, you should ask a professional some questions. Among the main questions you should ask and aspects you should find out about a dog, you should ask what his size will be at a mature age, how is he with children, how trainable he is, and how is he temperament in general.

If you do not know who to ask about the characteristics of a specific dog breed, you could look for a veterinarian and ask him, since he could always provide you with professional advice. In case it is a mixed-breed dog, you should ask for information from those who are giving him to you, and in case of finding the dog in the street, you should take him to a vet who could check him up and provide you with as much information as possible. It is always recommendable to learn as much as possible about the dog who will become the new member of the family in order to avoid surprises.
