For most of us today, a family is not complete without a pet. The pet is as good a part of the family as we are. Though there are various reasons why people want to adopt a dog, the main reasons are for company and for guarding. Nowadays, dogs really are petted for more reasons than just for company or because the owners are dog lovers. Some people use dogs to provide night security in factories, farm houses and country side homes. Most of the time, these dogs are wild and are trained to only follow directions of their master. They aren't the best choice for an apartment. Generally medium-sized dogs weigh anywhere between 30 to 60 pounds approximately, and live more than large dogs with an average life expectancy of about 8-9 years.

There are some people who buy an expensive dog, only to complement their social status. On the other hand, some people have various types of dogs and breeds just because they are dog lovers and love to have them around. When we talk about pets, we generally look for dogs that aren't too huge for they won't fit in the house and maintenance becomes a problem. On the flip side, a small dog is usually sensitive, and you can't make it go on long walks nor can you play with it the way you want, thinking you might hurt it. Medium-sized dogs are usually the choice here. They are perfect for almost any kind of homes and have great advantages, the most important that it can provide security. Every year some new breeds of dogs are discovered and enlisted with mix breeds and crossbreeds adding to this number.
