My cat, who's a year and a month old now, but he can't meow at certain times. Like if he's really trying to scream, he makes like a squeak-meow, but if he's not, only his mouth opens. Is there a reason for this? He's my other cat's kitten btw
Wally Whoever said that is dead wrong. Goldens are actually pretty loyal. Not as loyal as the German Shepherd, but still loyal.
super micheal Poodles and Goldendoodles are hypoallergenic so you can try them.

I was thinking of getting Golden Retriever, but I read that they're not very loyal. 3: I sorta want my dog to always be by me. Not like my(my brother's, but I take care of it. >.>) current dog, he's such a traitor. XD Is there any dog similar to the Golden Retriver(playful/cute), but loyal like a German Shepard?
Wolfdogs are a hybrid that occur as a result of mating a wolf and a dog.
It is difficult to say how friendly and loyal they are as a lot of the time it comes down to the individual wolfdog, as a whole they are considered to be rather unpredictable. They are very intelligent, but there have been a number of problems with the levels of aggression shown by them and there is quite a lot of controversy regarding the ownership of wolfdogs. As they are a genetic mix of both wolves and dogs, they have a wild pack mentality which can cause confrontations. It is generally advised that only very experienced and knowledgeable dog owners should have wolfdogs as they have the potential to be extremely dangerous and unpredictable.
Lastly, they are not even close to being as physically strong as a Tiger.
This paper will provide you with more information if there are other questions that you want answered.

I have a few question about wolfdogs, 1. what are the difference between a wolfdog and a pure wolf? 2. Are wolfdog as friendly and loyal as any other dogs? 3. Are wolfdog as strong as a tiger or pure wolfdogs?

Make sure it has a bit of space to run around and be free. That's always good for all dogs, but it's more important for bigger dogs because of their size.
German Shepherds are excellent guard dogs, and are used all the time in law enforcement. They're very loyal and intelligent, so you've picked a good dog.

I forgot to mention this I have two things allergy and asthma. I take allergy tablets prescribed by the doctors but it still affect both my allegy and my asthma when I am near pet. I haven't tried using injection though.
When the doctor read my allergy test, he said I shouldn't be near to any animal like cats, dog ect with hair and fur.

In many cases, young people outgrow allergies, generally by their mid-20s. If the allergies are severe enough, there are prescription medications and even injections that can sometimes control them.
If those options aren't realistic, you can try over the counter anti-histamines. Some work, some don't, and they're not generally recommended for younger people.
If you're okay with turtles, you're probably also okay with other reptiles. Snakes and lizards make interesting pets, although they do require an investment of both time, money and effort. You need to learn about them before going out and buying one.
Another option is a tarantula. If your parents aren't terrified of spiders and you can handle their unconventional way of eating, they are another aquarium pet option.

I have a question, is there anything that could help with allergy pet? I have a lot of allergy and one of the things I am allergic to is pets with hair, fur, feathers ect.
I had to get rid of my cat because of my allergy, we gave the cat to the vet.
The only animal I know I can have are like tortoise, lizard, ect those with no fur or hair or feathers.
I hope there is a cure for allergy though.
