What type of dog should I get?

I want a small, playful one. Not too small, though. Preferably brown, but any color works. Any suggestions?

Samoyed but only if you have the time to groom their thick coats.

Almost any of the smaller Dogs from the Humane Society or any Dog rescue in your area would be great, if you take a look at the ones that are already full grown and a little older, you'll not only know what you're getting, but you'll also be saving a Dog which likely has little chance of finding a home!:-).

Any dog from a rescue. My favorite rescue is Hearts United for Animals, or HUA.org. They do amazing work rescuing dogs from the horrid puppy mills they have in Pennsylvania. The Amish do not put heat or a/c in the old buildings full of reproducing dogs. The dogs don't get any vet care, eat the most rotten food, are not groomed, have their teeth cleaned or nails clipped. There are documented cases of dogs that are blind, terribly maimed and other health problems, still being forced to have puppies, only to have them taken away long before they are weaned.

Those places are Horrible!!! I wish people would just STOP buying Dogs, unless they are set upon having a certain Breed, and then do the research and for their sake and the sake of all Dogs; find a reputable breeder! Aaaarggghh!
I get so angry and frustrated when I see all the Dogs in shelters, many full breeds, and then there's so many breed specific rescue organizations... and STILL people insist on buying that "oh so cute puppy, just couldn't resist". pshaaww!

But here I am.. preaching to the choir.. that is the correct saying in English right?

Spot on! BTW, I adopted pure bred Lhasa Apso and purebred Chihuahua from HUA.org. I adopted two Japanese Chins from their breed specific rescue organization. The mutt I have came from the local shelter. None of these were pups, the mutt was less than a year, but the others were all adults. It was lovely to have them already through that puppy stage, I never regretted not having a pup for a single moment. I have seen purebreds from every breed listed for rescue, you just have to do a bit of searching. (I know you already know this, I'm kind of just adding this in for other peoples' enlightenment!
