For me I am a very detailed and organized person, so whatever dog I get has to match my personality. It bewilders me when I ask someone what they look for in a dog and all they say is the size. Me and a friend of mine are getting puppies soon and when I asked her what she wanted she said "a cute small one" I don't necessarily think there's anything wrong with it especially if the dog is taken good care of. But I feel like maybe those people aren't prepared for a dog. What are your opinions? and what did you want in your dog? Also would you let someone surprise you with a dog/pick one for you?
