I want a dog that I can take running with me. There are a few people that live in this area so it can't go running off.

I don't want to deal with too much hair.

Can't be gigantic...don't want to trip over it
Must not be mean...don't want to get sued or want it to eat someone elses dog
Must be very friendly

Boykin Spaniel... but be careful or your wife will steal it. Doesn't shed... always checks back... very biddable.

The dog your looking for may not exist. They will all run off if poorly trained or highly stimulated. The hair thing is iffy, they all tend to shed at certain times. My lab was friendly but not to cats. BTW labs are not good running companions, it wears out their hips. (at least that is what the vet I use says).

Border Collie...but only if you are smarter than the dog and can live with it while you arent running.

Runners world or one of the magazines had an article about dogs as running partners.

A Boykin will develop a closer bond with you than any dog you have ever had, if you spend quality time with them. They are just awesome dogs, and losing one will just about kill you.
