He's still a puppy and we would love to take him but once he grows up he's energic and big. I think a smaller dog would be suitable because my mom can't handle big ones and i was thinking about a pomeranian but my dad only likes big dogs. Our flat has like 95 m2 and isn't that small for such a dog? wouldn't a smaller dog be more suitable? he doesn't like small dogs at all.

1000 square feet doesn't sound that bad. I'd say having a yard would be the biggest factor, unless you're going to train him to somehow use a litter box. Your dog probably doesn't like little dogs because...
-He'll look ridiculous walking around with it.
If you want to skim this thread, probably other reasons.

Golden Retrievers are the most popular dogs, and it is no wonder. They're very lovable and get along well with kids. However, they do require a good bit of space and exercise. If your dad is going to be the one to walk and train him (and that is okay with your mom) in a reasonable amount of space, I do not see the issue. I'm not sure what your mom's hold-up with big dogs is, but if she's scared of them, your dad may want to rethink the size of the dog.1
