Default Dog suggestions

I'm considering getting a dog, I'm not concerned about traveling and leaving it behind cause I have alot of local family/girlfriend who have their own place. I say that off the bat because everytime I bring the idea of getting one to a friend they tell me I'll never beable to travel, anyhoo.

Things I am looking for:
- Small-medium sized
- Can handle indoors for long periods of time and not get too stir crazy, I'd walk it daily
- Doesn't shed
- Not too rare/wierd so I can actually find one
- I don't know much about how much price changes from breed to breed, but I would probably be up for anything < 1k$ CA. I'd prefer 250~500 range though.
- Some level of personality (I think only dog lovers can know what I mean here)
- Isn't abnormally loud and/or can be disciplined fairly well
- Not too girly looking


Thanks in advance.

This is my baby, Winston Churchill, before you go spending a thousand dollars on a dog, you should search online for the type you want and check to see if there is a rescue shelter within your driving area, you will have to pay for the shots and neutering fee and maybe a small donation on top of that but you can get a great dog this way, as Winston is proof of.

A bulldog named Winston Churchill? The collie named Lassie was taken?

well i was beaten to it, but i'll restate it...

its pointless/tragic to get a dog type in your mind and drop 1k at a breeder to get it when over 5 million dogs are euthanized yearly in animal shelters alone...

my advice would be to look up the animal shelters in your area, set a day aside and go look through all of them. there are great dogs with great personalities in there, and one of them will definately grab your attention and heart. at least seriously consider doing this, if it's not to much to ask.
