Emoore- I wasn't going to purchase a single purpose dog, just wanted to understand what it was and weather they would be good pets in the home for those who are somewhat active. From what I'm hearing, the answer might be no, they have alot of drive and most non working homes would not be a good fit for these dogs. Also, you mentioned the $$ aspect. yes, they probably cost alot more than a non working home would be willing to pay for a family pet.
Thanks to all for your value added comments. I learned alot here today.
