Arcanine or Growlithe can be good pets as they are very loyal. Arcanine if you prefer a big and strong pet, Growlithe if you want a small and cute one. Chimchar can also be a good pet I think. It's so cute and you can probably have a lot of fun with him.
Them country gals and boys would like to do some horseback riding too!
I personally would love to have a pet Fox, if it's legal, so Ninetales/Vulpix to the rescue!
