What Kind of Dog, for a Country girl?

.

I am looking for a good dog/puppy for a 14 year old. She wants a cute one, and she would prefer toy to small. She wants it be able to be ‘potty trained’ and also not be too lazy, but have it’s lazy moments. She wants one that will lay down and watch a movie with her, but will also go walking with her, or even go camping and ride in her ‘pet basket’ on her bicycle. She had a "Yorkie Poo" ( a mix between a Yorkshire Terrier, and a Toy Poodle ), but she died last July of Old age, she’d had her since Preschool, and wants a new dog to fill the ‘void’ in her life. As I said she’s a 14 year old, has a large yard, lives out in the country, in the USA, also in Kentucky where there are not extremely big weather changes, just cold and hot. She wants the dog to be happy, also the dog will need to be able to be kept in a cage during school days, and during other times. The dog needs to be able to bark when there’s an intruder, but be very friendly. Thanks in advance!!(:
Yes. I know dogs shouldn’t be left in a ‘cage’ all day, but this cage is not what your thinking of as ‘cage. It’s more like a room where the dog is free, and has room to move, run, and eat and drink. The owner just doesn’t want the dog chewing, pooping, or peeing on everything. Thanks for trying though.
I didn’t say this dog was a present, because in fact this dog is NOT a present. This girl lost her father when she was 11 and she is also an only child, all she has is her Mother with her at home. She lost her dog last July, and has been wanting a dog. She is very mature for her age, and I really would appreciate people not telling me to get her a Hamster, because she doesn’t like rodents. Hamsters die too often, and it would not help. Also, I did not say she would be caged completely, or that the dog had to be all of the things above! They are not requirements, just possible things that would possibly help you, help me choose which breed!

Also, the thing with the OWL incident, The dog would mostly be inside, so that’s not much of a big deal. But I was also thinking Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, or Yorkie!

Thanks for the idea of the shelter! That’s a great idea!(:

Also, thank you to everyone that has ANSWERED MY QUESTION! I was not looking for people telling me how I should not ge
How I should not get her a puppy/dog, I have set my mind to it, and I’m getting her one! I was coming to you all, for help on choosing a breed.

      Hey I see that you need some sort of guide that will giveyou tips and tricks to help your dog become fully trained and more healthy. Recently one of my friends really needed some advice on how to train his dog. He followed the dog training academy course to successfully have a fully trained dog in a few weeks.

      I have 2 dachshunds. They are active when I am, and lazy when I am. They will cuddle up to me when i watch tv. And they go everywhere with me. They also have a big bark that will scary the intruder. But dachshunds can be a bit barky, You just neeed to make sure you have proper training and socialization for the dog. My one is quiet and the other one is a big barky when she sees a new person or a animal. light to carry, love to be with you. They also follow me everywhere, even off leash. My doxies are also crate trained. they dont make a sound they sleep and stay calm when theyre in there. I wish I knew how other breeds acted but I only have dachshunds, labs, and just got a Border Collie 2 months ago. lol Good luck on your new pet! (:

      Well, i have two Dachshund’s more commonly known as a "wiener dog" they are very friendly dogs and will bark at intruders, mine were easily house trained. Dachshunds are fairly small dogs and love to be with their people, also i would recommend a Pomeranian, i own one of these also, they fit what your looking for in the description as well.

      A young adult dog from a rescue or shelter. With an adult the qualities you are looking for are known. These cannot be determined with a pup. Rather an adult or a pup neither can stay in a crate all day. 2-4 hours is ok for an adult. All day is too long.

      Pug

      Jack Russel Terrier

      Yorkie

      Yorkshon

      Petfinder.com can be a huge help

      I would hesitate to recommend small toys for the country; there was just an incident on the news earlier this week of a Great Horned Owl that swooped down on a Chihuahua being walked on a leash! The owl wasn’t at all afraid of the man holding the leash!!

      The first breed that came to mind is the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel: sweet-natured, not too big, mellow and calm, but still spaniel enough to like walking in the country and finding birds.

      Dogs are not presents. Young Teenagers should not have a dog all of their own. She has to train the dog in order for it to be "Potty trained" and needs to exercise the dog in order for it to be "lazy."

      Do not get a dog as a gift for a child. You are expecting way too much from a dog, needs to be caged most of the time, needs to bark at "intruders," be friendly, potty trained, and be "Lazy." This kid doesn’t need a dog. Maybe a hamster.

      why not go to the shelter and allow her to choose who she wants?
