Thinking of Getting an Australian Shepherd
I am thinking of getting an Aussie. I am looking for a dog that likes to curl up on my lap at the end of the day. Petting a furball is stress-relief for me. My Golden passed a few weeks ago and I didn't realize how much my 90lb lap dog helped me relieve stress. Also, my Golden Doodle would like a playmate. But he is not much of a lapdog.
Question 1: Are Aussies good for being cuddly lapdogs?
I have also been hearing that they are crazy with energy, to the point I am a little scared. The Golden Doodle likes to play and he has a lot of energy.
Question 2: Is an Aussie much more energetic than a Golden Doodle?
I don't want to get a dog and regret it.
