How to Pick a Puppy?

Since my freshman year at UGA, I have wanted a female Boston Terrier named Lola. On a grocery trip to Target, I spontaneously bought her the most adorable bed and food/water dish. And now it is 4 years later, and I still don't have Lola!
I don't really know when we will get a dog (sooner than later hopefully :) but Doug and I are talking about it. I agree with him that we don't want one if we are in an apartment, we would rather have a yard that he/she can run around in. But since we are in the process of trying to move..... :) Let's just say it's the only thing on my Christmas list!
Since it might be in the near future, I have started to do my research on what kind of dog I want. This little face has been in my heart for 4 years now
BUT, when I petsat for Chef last year (the chef at Towne Lake Hills, where I used to work), I fell madly in love with his boxer (who I kind of renamed Lola for the week :) It just fit her too perfectly). She was such a cuddler and didn't realize she wasn't the usual size of a lap dog. So this got me thinking maybe I want a boxer?

My only concern is that they are known to be very hyper. Lola wasn't, and I'm sure there are some that aren't. I think they are the perfect size and just couldn't be cuter. I've read that they are great family dogs, too.
I am open to other breeds, too. I know that I want to adopt a dog from a shelter or a rescue. (Soapbox moment!) If you are looking to get a new dog, PLEASE consider adopting rather than buying from a petstore or breeder. There are so many sweet and adorable dogs out there that need a good home.
For example, we got THE BEST DOG in the entire world from the humane society- meet my little baby Deuce. He has been in our family since I was in the 7th grade, and I don't think it's possible for us to love him any more than we do. We may be a little obsessed, but how could you not be with this beautiful face?!

Since we found him at the pound, I am also considering just going to a shelter and finding an adorable mutt to love. So if you have any advice, experience, etc. please leave a comment and let me know! The more info, the better :)

um, you know how I feel about dogs. Chihuahuas hold a special place in my heart...kinda like the Boston Terrier for you:) HOWEVER, I am all about rescues now! Hudson and Ellie were both rescues and they are perfect for our family! I suggest just browsing Petfinder and seeing what is out there. When we were looking for Hank I discovered and really love their website. They give lots of info on their rescue dogs up for adoption. Check it out:)
