I would suggest a Cocker Spaniel, Dachshund or Golden Retriever. A Beagle would also be great, but would not fit your budget. However, whichever breed u keep, please read up a little about it before you keep it. Also please read up about dogs and their care before you go for a dog. All the best!

Hello Shalin - the suggestion you gave is good breed but they all are medium size and i would not like to get that size since i feel they would be big for my daughter say 1 to 2 yrs down the line. Also these breed do not come in my budget. If u know someone who can fit things in my bill let me know..

Hi Vikram
GR is great with Kids and fantastic dog overall, but its a medium breed and surely does not fit in the budget I am looking at. This I can say since I did talk with few folks and the minimum for good litter is on avg. 15K.
Same with Beagle, fits into size criteria but out of budget as you said.
Cocker/ Dachshund - Fits the size, I am not sure of budget since some breeders quoted higher prize and some less and not willing to share lineage and I am afraid to go that way. I am just providing my thoughts, feel free to respond if you think thats not what you think.

U mentioned that u do not want a show quality pup, do mention that do the breeder before he quotes his price. And always buy from a person who will show u both parents along with the litter.
Another important point is that a small breed pup will be very delicate. So be sure that ur kid will not play rough with the pup. It can injure the pup beyond repair.
Most medium sized dogs do well in apartments if u can take them out for a nice long walk atleast twice everyday. And most of them r good with children too. Infact some smaller breeds r more aggressive than medium breeds like chihuahua. So do ur research about breed temperaments before buying any breed.
Consider lab, cocker, spitz, lhasa. Dachshund IS NOT recommended for home with children.

Thanks Runni for your suggestion, I am pulling Lab out of the contention at this moment since its big in size compared to cocker/ spitz and lhasa.
Taking your advice for Dachshund as well. Thank you.. Which leaves me with Cocker/ Spitz and lhasa. I liked Cocker and Lhasa but aren't lhasa too not recommended for home with kids ?
Which zero's down to Cocker and Spitz. I know Spitz can fit my budget, any idea weather Cocker too can fit in my budget ? any help on that ?

Well, I would have love to help u about the prices but I m not much aware of current peices of small breed dogs. Check the pups available section of this blog & u may get an idea about the prices.

I believe Cocker is a great choice and will suggest Blue Roan English Cocker Spaniels over solid colors. I have bred Cockers as well as Lhasa Apso, and I find both breeds very interesting. I will further like to bring to light that when you buy highly pedigreed dogs you are buying something which is bred to behaviour and not always for the Shows. You may also go to my profile and check out some blogs I have written about puppy pricing.
A good quality British Cocker Spaniel (Sire and Dam Champion) shall cost you anything between 10K to 20K

Thank you Rana for your advice, I did read your blog on the pricing and belive me its almost 6-8 month I have been actively on this forum, seeking advice here and there. Interestingly we both are in the same city and I would say just a lane away since you are in KV and I am near JVT. Would you mind helping me and suggest gentleman who can guide me. I would come back to you, if I need any more help, I hope you don't mind. Thanks
