What kind of dog breed is lazy and needs little exercise?

    You will be safer to get an older dog as a companion (this is an excellent reason to adopt a neutered pet from your local shelter). You need to consider that some breeds can still get quite bossy in old age when they don’t have regular stimulation. In fact, a lot of the dogs that randomly bite people at times, are older dogs! Its true.. My sister has had a st bernard for 9 yrs, she has always been docile and happy to meet other dogs. I suggest you search for a new pet from your shelter who is at least 6-7yrs, not a working dog mix, and, who has been well socialized and gets along with all the other dogs in the shelter. A reputable shelter will have checked for social behaviour issues amongst thier dogs.
    Also, getting a new dog isn’t always the right thing to do for your current pet. She may be very happy being the only dog in your life.. How would she adjust to a new member?? Gd luck and i hope your new pet does not cause any jealousy issues for your current dog. A new dog that doesn’t need much excercise doesn’t garantee a happy relationship for your aging pet.

    Bulldogs are one breed, but are very high maintance and very expensive. Bassett Hounds are Lazy and low maintance. They do bark, but the ones I know, go on short walks and lay around a lot.

    Good Luck.

    They are just a mixed breed that I got from our local dog shelter.

    English bulldog is the #1 choice, also bassett hounds!

    English Bulldog, check the rescue-but from what I have seen the bulldogs are very particular about children and other pets (cats/dogs). I have Olde English and they are lazy! Mine are pups, and they play for maybe 30 minutes a day-if we are lucky-and then pretty much lay around the rest of the time. They are affectionate, and they do like to cuddle with our other dogs.

    Basset Hounds are NOT lazy. They are a hunting dog, bred to chase rabbits. They DO need regular exercise, although not as much as, say, a husky or pointer.

    We get far too many young bassets into rescue because the people who bought them thought they were getting a lazy dog. Young bassets are pretty active.

    A senior basset might fill your needs. Check out the local basset rescues and see if they have any quiet, older bassets and if they would be suitable for your home.
