Skimming through your post, I would lean towards a wire-haired vizsla. They should do everything you wasn't to.

Happiness Personified was a fitting name. This was not the only name that she was called, most commonly she was known as Sienna. Angel was her first name before we got her, Battery Butt was another moniker, and that is what she had. This dog never stopped moving, she was always happy to see you, no ...

Re: A quick food question.

I fed Diamond for a while but started having issues and even though they said there was no change in formula, we noticed a difference. We have switched to Native by Kent and are very happy with it, we are feeding less, so the cost is evening out. Good luck on whatever you decide to feed.
