Well, I already have the breed I want to own.. Haha..

I have never wanted another breed of dog, the Shepherds have always been my choice.

Now if you asked how many of that breed I would want to own.. haha.. that would be a different story!

I already have the breed I love most, Akitas lol but when I'm older I wish I could have a few of them. I would also love hybrid wolf dogs but I know I wouldn't have the lifestyle needed to care for them properly.

Daschund (probably top of my list)

Italian Greyhound
Chihuahua
Blue Heeler
Frenchy's Kelpie :lovestruck:
and any other adorable mutt that comes along!!!

I once had a shep and I would love another one.

Others:
Boxer
Beagle
Black Lab
Yellow Lab

Of course, I would prefer a mix with one of the above...the mutts I have met all seem to be such goofs :D

August 5th, 2009, 10:00 PM
Frenchy's Kelpie :lovestruck:


:laughing: Sienna is still looking for her forever family ;)

I can't list the breeds I would like to get because it's almost 11 pm and I would like to go to bed before 2 am :laughing:

there's so many but ... ok let me try this

- st-bernard
- english mastiff
- pyrenee
- any other breed 100 lbs and up :laughing:

for the smaller breeds :

- irish or english setter
- cocker spaniel

if I had more time , maybe when I retire and have time to train or do agility :

- border collie
- gsd
- Kelpie :D

of course , I will ALWAYS have at least one golden in my house. :cloud9: oh and a great dane too !

and any other dog with a good temperament .... so basicly , I can end up with any breed , any day :shrug:

August 5th, 2009, 10:03 PM

Borzoi
German Shepherd
Staffordshire Bull Terrier
Minature Bull Terrier
Greyhound
American Pit Bull/Amstaff (whoever's looking for a home :))
Australian Cattle Dog
Another mutt
Shiba Inu (already own one, but would definately own another as weird as they are ;))
Smooth Collie
Cane Corso

Chaser
August 5th, 2009, 10:50 PM
Oooooh this is fun! :D Here's my Top 10 - I've even already named some of them!

In order of priority:

1. Bernese Mountain Dog (Bella)
2. Rottie (Jackson) - want to get one through Adopt-A-Rotti here in Ontario
3. Pug (Lexie) - preferably a brindle one - Pugalug rescue has one now that I'm in love with but DH-to-be says no, even though she would be perfect for our family! :cry: Meanie! :yell:
4. GSD - I want another cream/silvery one like Kailey
5. Black Lab
6. Cane Corso
7. Doberman
8. Border Collie - preferably a Nova lookalike!!! But again, DH says no, because he thinks Chase is already too hyper and annoying and therefore doesn't want a purebred BC :rolleyes:
9. Rhodesian Ridgeback
10. Leonberger

A Boston Terrier would be the only other small breed I would like to have. Otherwise I'm a "big dog" person!

If I didn't live in Ontario I would rescue a Pitbull in a heartbeat. :sad:

Want to try (again) to foster GSDs for GSRT once we own our own home....

The above listed would be rescues, except probably the Berner. I think that is the one dog I would go to a breeder for, since they are so rare in rescue. As well, when we have kids we won't be able to have foster dogs in the home for several years and I want our kids to have a puppy to grow up with. I think a Berner would be perfect :lovestruck:

I also want to rescue an exotic (rabbit or ferret), who I would like to call Felix. Plus a pair of goats...as yet unamed.

Breeds that I never, ever want to own because I know they would be an awful fit for us: JRT, Beagle, Hound, Min Pin....great dogs, but for somebody else!!!!

Right now I have a Shiba Inu. He is my first dog I have on my own (had 5 different ones growing up).

When I get a house and a husband, I'd like a German Shepherd. At some point, I really want a cocker spaniel.

Other than that, I'd like whatever little guy or gal catches my love. <3

When I was growing up our family always had a Kerry Blue Terrier. Then in high school I got my first two rough collies. Since then I've always had a collie, plus we've had great danes, border collies, bc mixes, ACD mix and Thunder (whatever he is :laughing: ) Dh has also had a hound and beagle for deer hunting. I have to say that in the border collies I've found the perfect match for me, there is no other breed I'd want to have now. Unless I get sheep and want to also have a livestock guardian dog. A friend of mine has some beautiful Anatolian Shepherds that guard her flock.

I would love another Rottie. I have a feeling it will be a while. This is the only breed I would love to have once again. No other - but then again, they usually pick me and not the other way around.....and I am feeling like I am going to foster fail once again with a mix lab/GSD/husky...:o (I am trying very hard to fight these feelings OFF).

A little :offtopic: but when the jackpot gets really high, hubby and I go out to get a ticket . If we ever win a bunch of money we would totally get a bigger property and rescue more animals. Though, Any future dog would have to be good with cats and kids because I doubt I would be without either in the future :rolleyes:.Anyways, in no particular order (and these would all be rescues and most likely mutterooskies of what's listed):


Newfoundland (I have one and I love her, and to have another would be:cloud9:)
Beagle
Boxer
Standard Poodle
Shih tzu (Have one, their so fun and spunky, I love them :lovestruck: )
JRT (also quite spunky and go go go :laughing: )
Doberman
Pug (If I had one I would totally need to name him Waffles :D )
Cocker spaniel
Boston Terrier
Lhaso Apso
GSD (had one when I was a kid and loved her )
St. Bernard
Min Pin
Golden Retriever
Catahoula Leopard Dog
Rottie
Labrador Retriever (any color)
Min Schnauzer
Sheltie
Italian Greyhound


I'm sure there are more I'm not thinking of. I currently have wonderful mellow dogs right now, so I think it would be fun to have a bouncier dog next for like Agility,Jogging and biking.

Although I'm a "cat person" now, I do love dogs and had some as pets or a close relationship over the years: Rough Coated Collie, Collie/Shep mix, English Cocker Spaniel, Walker hound, Chow Chow, Saluki and Papillon. If I were to get another dog it would be probably a fairly small, long coated one for the cuddle factor! Also don't feel I could handle a big breed now. I don't like the wirey terrier coat nor the terrier personality so that would cut out a lot of breeds. Likely it would be, in no particular order of preference, a....

Papillon
Minature Poodle
Shih Tzu
Havenese
Cavalier King Charles Spaniel or cross
English Cocker Spaniel
Sheltie
Italian Greyhound (even tho they're shortcoated)
Whippet (someone mentioned a "longhired whippet", oh gr8! didn't know there was such a thing.

August 6th, 2009, 01:15 PM
Two breeds have always held a spot in the "I want" part of my brain, the Newfoundland Dog and St. Bernard. If I ever get the chance to get one it'll be from a rescue, but I'll always have myself a rescue mutt or two. :thumbs up

No I think it would be called a 'Speciale Dogue de L'age D'or pour la French'. Yep - that's the dog she is thinking of....or maybe it's called 'chien avec trois patte sans voix, sans nez' - oops nope that would be Lucky Penny's!:D

It's not a program though, it's just a website. All you'd have to do is erase any history of going there on that computer. :D

But, I totally understand about work. I used to work for a woman who drove me nuts about stuff on the computer. And most of it was stuff I needed to do my job!:frustrated:

Okay, I can't remember their breed either, but Lukka (RIP) and Mishka would be a fav for me, and just about any other large breed dog.

Have always loved
Borzoi's
Bernese Mtn Dogs
St. Bernards
Newfs
Danes
Pyrenees

But I've always had pure bred mutts, which I've loved just as much.

Ok, I am not even allowed to visit a shelter anymore or else hubby said were getting a divorce. But I have a soft spot for chi's. They always end up in shelters around here as being vicious and children haters and I have adopted some that are now my sons best friend. I would have more labs, greyhounds, hounds, whippets, oh basically anything that would give me the puppy dog take me home eyes.

This is my little list...

Bloodhound (I want one real bad!)
Basset
Staffy
Bull Terrier
American Bulldog
Doberman Pinscher (I have a soft spot for them)
English Mastiff

I would love to adopt these breeds, however I just know that I will eventually have another Bullmastiff and more Miniature Pinschers when the time comes because I cannot be without them. You never know though what kind of dog will steal your heart, and should I enter a shelter all this could fly out the window! :shrug:

Dog Dancer
August 7th, 2009, 10:33 AM
Oh I forgot Mastiffs too, but note that I did not include several breeds, I didn't list Pit Bulls or Staffies because I know that I am not disciplined enough to own one of them. I love them but know they'd walk all over me and end up being a bad example for the breed because I'd let them get away with waaay too much and it would be bad for them. Bad me, but good me because I know my limitations.

August 12th, 2009, 11:25 AM
Huge dog breed the one like to own one of that is the Bullmastiff. Huge size a natural protector with a strength like those with the bulldogs. Great Dane are also a good dog breed, but sometimes tend to have some problems.

SnowDancer
August 12th, 2009, 11:31 AM
The breed of my life - an Alpha mini Dachshund (benevolent though) - without the dreaded back/neck disc disease. Since I have already had these darlings and been through "h" and back with their horrible surgeries - I will just have to hope there is a Rainbow Bridge. I just can't go through that again - or put one of them through it.

We now have an American Eskimo - we love him dearly, but it is different - and I would never have 2 of them - the word is MES - Multiple Eskimo Syndrome. So we are now down to one dog - and since I am now 59 and my husband is 60 - and our dog is 5 - he will probably be our last dog if he lives to his expected age - I would be afraid to get a dog at age 70 - am worried enough as it is in case we die together - our will providing for our guy notwithstanding - you really have to rely on your executor to follow your wishes in Canada with dogs being chattels.

One day I will own a scottish deerhound. I have to wait for no cats or small dogs first as we don't wish for them to be considered live snacks! and then of course, it's a rescue so that can take several years.....

I see myself with more and more Tibetan Mastiffs,

I would like to always have a rescue Am.Cocker Spaniel

Love to one day have a Great Dane, bulldog (french or english), Caucasion Ovcharka and thats all I can think of right now.
Other than TM's, I would rescue all the others

erykah1310
August 13th, 2009, 02:38 PM
That sounds bad, I would rescue any TM that crossed my path as well, but as for the other breeds I wouldn't seek out a breeder for them if I wanted them, with the exception of the CO, I don't see many of them in rescue

August 13th, 2009, 08:49 PM
ooo my turn! I always dreamed of a well bred reg. Lab and i have her so all others will b the most desprate rescues. BUT if rescues were no longer needed i would want an english setter, havenese, chessie, std poodle, gsd, coton, pbgv, uhmm. .i know there are many more?

I'll have both Tollers and Dobermans forever. They're both perfect for me, but in different ways.

Other than those two, I don't have a big desire to seek out any other breeds. I used to think I wanted a Belgian Shepherd or a Border Collie, and still love them, but I've since learned that herding breeds aren't for me. Leonberger are beautiful as well, but I'm not sure I'll ever be in a position to own a giant breed. I'd love to have another Dalmatian someday though. Whether that'll happen or not, I don't know, but I adore them. :)
