Another big dog option is the greyhound. While this well-known racing dog may seem like an odd choice, its easygoing nature makes it the perfect canine roommate. Greyhounds are trainable, calm and adapt well to new and different environments. Like the Great Dane, greyhounds are also couch potatoes, content to curl up on the couch or bed next to you. When it comes to exercise, a quick 10-minute stroll outdoors or run around the dog park will suit this racing champion just fine. As an added bonus, their short hair makes for low maintenance since only minimal grooming is required.
