I am a high school senior. Soon I will be graduating, and I plan to get an apartment near MTSU, the college I plan to attend. I really want to get a dog, I've had them in the past but they were never strictly "my dog."

I would like to know what breed I should get. I want a fairly large dog, sweet and loyal to me, and I'd have a reason to walk them every day, so I'm excited.

I don't really like little yipping dogs, and I know getting a big dog would not be a good idea for a small apartment, but I'd still appreciate ideas. When I say big, I mean like an aus. shepard. big fluffly dogs. :)

 I am glad you are going to college. It is NOT what you think it is. It is not an extention of high school. It is more like high school on a really fasty set of drugs. 

 That said, please think about what your average day will be like. You will have classes to attend, each with a load of homework. You will have to get a job to support yourself if you don't have someone helping fund you. You will want to be a part of the fraternity/sorority thing and/or join some clubs. You cannot expect a dog to stay alone in an apartment for hours on end. You will need to make arrangements for walks etc if you are unavailable. Plus a big fluffy dog who needs lots of exercise like an aussie will..let me say it again...WILL find something to do. That usually means chewing everything and anything.Please reconsider getting a pet at this time. Wait until you have the time to really dedicate to a dog. They are little people in a dog costume. They don't deserve less than the best.
