Which dog breed is suitable for appartment, GSD, Boxer or Bull dog?

Hello guys...i hv always wanted to have a GSD...n now i think i m ready to have one. There is one point that is bothering me...i m from mumbai n i hv a two bhk apartment. is this enough to keep a gsd??i m worried abt this s i dnt want him to be uncomfortable just bcoz of me. i can take him for walks/exercise daily thats not an issue for me. so kindly advise whether i shld go ahead with GSD or not?? If not then kindly suggest if boxer, bulldog are appropriate. looking forward to hearing from u guys...

Big dogs need space, but if walked and given proper exercise everyday and atleast twice a day they should be fine. But do not leave them alone plus what happens when u r off to work or busy with work and family and are then unable to exercise your dog etc. that is when the problem comes. Its a very nice idea of having a particular dog breed etc but when actually you get down to getting one and caring for it correctly it is a completely different thing. i hope u understand what I am saying.

Boxer's are very energetic and I would not advise that although they too can be kind of happy in an apartment if given enough exercise.

However I would seriously advise you for a smaller breed. Bulldogs have there own disadvantages or charm, they snore and fart. They can be great chewers and also they require their wrinkles to be cleaned properly regularly to avoid fungus infection. Whatever breed you like, go int it do your research on the net and only then go for one. There r too many pedigree dogs been abandoned due to lack of knowledge owners have about particular breeds.

Active toy breeds......again they need space and exercise, but common breeds would be the popular and easy to keep beagle, smooth fox terrier, not so active pug, poms, the list goes on and on.....go on the net or pick up an good dog book on dog breeds and see toy breeds and do your research on the net......

Friend, GSD's are not stuffed dolls...and are not to be kept in 2 BHK apartments... they need lot of space to move around apart from normal exercise. Please do not get me wrong...

The best breed you can go for is a Spitz... they are excellent companions and alarm/guard dogs.
