I've been looking into getting my first dog, and I live in an apartment with a cat. I've heard that greyhounds are a good beginner breed that does well in apartments, but sighthounds in general aren't recommended around cats/small animals because they're bred to chase. On the other hand, I've heard that labs make good beginner dogs, and I've been looking into adopting an older one.

People might get labs as beginner dogs but they almost inevitably fuck them up. They are super high energy and I would not recommend them for people who aren't experienced with training dogs. Most labs you will find in shelters were improperly cared for and have many behavior problems (generally why they were dropped off).
Your best bet would be to look into your local no-kill shelters and get a dog that has experience being around cats. It doesn't have to be a certain breed or whatever, just ask for the temperament you want.
I tried to look this up on forums but got no answers, so I want to ask here, I have a male cat, DSH, named Bowie. He resently went throught a UTI-surgery, one which it took him a week to recover and twice to be unblocked. He had been hooked up on a catheter and fluids for the past week and the vet took him out of it last Sunday. He did well both days and his readings were stabilizing.
I brought him home today and now he doesn't seem to want to do much, just hide in his carrier box and under chairs, just like he did before the whole thing began, should I be concerned?... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>2035753 He has been peeing, however in small amounts. He still has not eaten though. I also habe to other cats, both females, that have been very menacing to him ever since he got back, which is strange since they never have done that in the past.

>>2035677 Have you ever had a dog before? >Yes - Husky >No - Labrador Retriever Do you work long hours? >Consider a greyhound. I'm normally against shelter dogs due to wild behavior & aggression, but greyhounds are docile as fuck. I'd sugggest one of these if you're out often as Huskies/Labs shouldn't be left alone for long periods of time
>>2035681 >Have you ever had a dog before? had dog before but had absolutely no clue since i was 7 >Do you work long hours? reserves in the army weekly training and roughly a fortnight to do anything like..actual so if i was to go with a labrador retriever, would he be fine with these conditions?
