But I've been owned by Rottweilers for 18 years and just love them.

Another English Bulldog lover here.

I have a 4 year old red named Licorice with a white ring around her neck, and white paws.

I don't really like the American Bulldogs though...

I must admit I am torn. My boyfriend's family was lucky to get a 1 1/2 year-old english bulldog for free last year, and that made me into a dog person. She is friendly, yet pushy, but you can tell looking at her that she's all love!
But now, I have my very own rescued mantle Great Dane named Laurel, and I have to say she is the nicest dog I have ever met. Just goofy enough to make me laugh, but I have never felt safer walking down the street with her!

I recommend both breeds wholeheartedly, if you can take their greatly reduced life expectancies.

Well I must say my favorite is the GSD.I grew up with them.And my 2 current babies are Yukon and Tron.But my second choice is the Great Dane.My aunt bred them when I was younger.And my best friend has one.This is her baby Jazz and her sisters Beagle,peanut.My babies are posted in pictures.:D

What a gorgeous Great Dane, and Beagle is to DIE for!!! I have never seen that colouring before. Then again, I am not that familiar with their accepted colours. I don't understand why some are and aren't. And I also don't know the difference between mantle and merle. oh well, gorgeous pets you and your friend have!!!

Carina

Beautiful Dane!
RuffNTumble, a good friend has a rescue (black) Dane. She really wants a mantle; I understand this colour was only recently allowed as acceptable for showing.
Robbie's Dane is one of my Rottie Cooper's best buds. Makes him look positively small, no mean feat for a Rottweiler.

A friend has some photos of Dana (the Dane, of course) dressed as a ballerina for Halloween. Cooper is dressed as a fairy Rottweiler. They looked just fabulous. I'm going to get my friend Sandi to join up here so she can post photos for me!

Thank you guys.I have never heard of mantle.What is the colouring?Colours for the Dane have changed.The usual colours are fawn,black,blue,brindle and harliquin and boston.Jazz is a big lovable baby.He just loves my guys.Peanut is such a sweetie.It's funny when we have all the dogs together and go for walks.Peanut is an ant compared to Jazz and my guys.LOL.

Carina, I just found this out as well. Most books I read say it is not acceptable, but I suppose they could be dated. It's funny, most of the dogs I have seen that are up for adoption were mantles, or at least described as such. I can't wait to post pictures of her on here, but they are just getting developped!

I can narrow it down to a group.

the group is hounds-the bigger and sloppier the better! I have a Bluetick coonhound and a beagle.

I would love someday to have a bloodhound.

Love the goofy personalities and they are always so loving.

My favourite dog,has four legs,a tail,a big wet nose to kiss and a big "sucky heart"and loves the company of cats and it does not matter if he is a Great Dane/Chihuahua mix.
I do find Dobermans extreemly beautiful though! :p

I have Dals right now....not because I find them gorgeous but because they needed me.

But if I had my choice I would love a purebred German shepard with the gold face and black mask.

Or an Afgan but I hear they are crazy dogs. I would really like a dog that doesn't come with baggage.....but knowing me I will rescue another.....which some how is the best dog?

Firstly because I am no young chick:-) secondly I have 3 cats,one on anti-depressant:-) and our house is not big enough,Shepards are not chihuahuas:-)and under no circumstances would I leave him outside...
However there is light at the end of the tunnel,we will be moving next year to somewhere in the Niagara escarpment area,buy a house with a couple of acre,lots of room for a dog....probably would have to start with a puppy,because of my mentally disturbed cat:-)

If you think your "mentally disturbed cat" would like a puppy - better think again!! :p

Puppies and adult cats (especially if they aren't used to dogs) are the WORST combination.

If you want a dog, I suggest you get a young adult who is already known not to harass or chase cats in any way.

That's what I did!:)

1john44
February 11th, 2004, 10:07 PM
I used to have a normal cat, but my dog changed that. One day the dog will snuggle with the cat, the next he chases it. I think he may have mulitple personalities! Talk about making life interesting!

We will probably stick with the cats:(
My son came over unexpectantly with his Jack Russel when we had the cats out in the backyard and I have never seen the cats climb a tree that fast and that high...
Two of them came down on their own,but my son had to climb up after Vinnie...that's how they feel about dogs:D

My favourite breed would probably be a Golden Retriever, or a Chocolate Lab, but I like Poodles to.

1john44
February 13th, 2004, 10:28 AM
LABS! We actually went looking for a golden retriever. Our son wanted one, so we did some research and decided it was a great dog to have, so we went hunting! They were running more then what we had hoped to spend, when one of the breeders told us another option was the lab. So we looked into that, and it didn't take long, before we had a yellow male puppie! And I was hooked. I am sure that if something happens to my boy we would be okaywith getting a goldie as I am told they personality wise are just like the labs, but I do LOVE my lab.

Spoiled
February 13th, 2004, 07:23 PM
I like the gentle personalitys of Labs and Goldens. They're supposed to be wonderful with kids. Sometimes I visit one, and he's gentle, except he jumps up. How do you stop a dog like that from jumping up? He's to big to ignore like some dog trainers suggest.

1john44
February 13th, 2004, 09:03 PM
You can't ignore them. That just makes them more determined to get your attention! My labs are the best with kids! My kids use them as pillows and the labs now expect it. If the kids are laying on the ground away from the dogs, the dogs move over and shove their nose under their heads, until they wiggle under them!

Rolex
February 15th, 2004, 10:25 PM
I love all dogs. But my first would be the lab. I now have a black lab/border collie mix. Roxie's beautiful and I love her to pieces. She's a bit on the 'rascally' side but she's only 10 weeks old. Before that we had a sheltie/poodle mix and she was the most lovable dog I had ever known. Unfortunately she passed away last September at the age of 18 years old.

Nothing beats a four legged friend who loves you no matter what.:D

Anita... there's always dogs who's temperament is much more relaxed & calm... ones that dont get as anxious around a cat that others do... maybe even an older one.

but what I'd worry about is whether that dog will get enough attention. if 1 cat wont go near the dog, and the other two dog find him all that interesting since they got one another. YOU will be that dog's ultimate companion. and you're going to have to divide yourself btw him AND the three others who've had 1/3 of your attention already... taking a bit more away so that you can show the dog how much you care may create hostility... or it may not.

that depends on our other 2 cats and what they can handle.

good luck :)

Aggie,I wrote that post a while back and had to back-track to check:D
Any animal that would ever come into my house would be loved and cared for.
I would LOVE to have a dog especially one of those poor dogs in a shelter,but common sense tells me,it's not a good idea:(
Yes,you are right,my cats would put up a fuzz,they are incredibly spoiled(loved)we almost live our lives around them and their time-table:D
We also go away a couple of times a year and one of my sons stay here at the house,I don't even leave the cats alone for a week-end:o
He,however is terrified of dogs,any dogs.
Even if we do move in a year or so,it would be very difficult to get a dog with my cats and I think I am too old for the stress it would cause for me,the dog and my cats.
So even though I would love to have a dog,I don't think it will happen:(
We've had dogs before,in Sweden we had a Chow/Shepard mix,a wonderful dog and here in Canada we had a Collie/Shepard and a Cockerspaniel.

My favorite breed tends to be whatever I have at the time.

During my teen years, it was a Pleasantly Plump beagle named Charlie:

During my college years, it was a Divinely Debonair Doberman named Duke:

Today in my 30's, it's a Masterpiece Mutt, named Loki! (Well, Pit/Boxer cross):

http://www.babayaaga.com/images/Lokicomic.jpg

Lately I've been developing an interest for BullMastiffs. We've been debating getting a "friend" for Loki, and recently moved to a house where we have a lot of room! I have read that they are massive couch potatoes! Loki herself is a couch potato, and something similar is what we're looking for.

Hi Waggie, yes, they are mine. You want me to tell you about my dogs?? We could be here all day!!!
That's Wilson on the left (german shorthaired pointer) and Isabella (Izzy) on the right (Weimeraner). Wilson is 10 months old today, and Izzy turned 1 last month. They are the BEST of friends, all the do all day is sleep, eat and play! They have never had an argument and fingers crossed it stays that way!
They have the loveliest nature's, although they can be very active, they both love jumping on the bed in the mornings on the weekends for a sleep in!

I just love them!

Hey Waggie,
We got Izzy first, we got her by accident (well, kind of an accident). My husband has ALWAYS wanted a German Shorthaired Pointer,and when I called around looking for puppies, one of the breeders also bred Weimeraners and she just happened to have 2 litters (one longhaired and one shorthaired)that were ready to go, so I begged my husband just to go and have a look at them, he didn't have to get one if he didn't want to. But they were all so cute, he just couldn't help himself. Weimeraner's are the most beautiful puppies, I've attached a pic of Izzy when she was about 10 weeks old. The reason why we got Wilson soon after is because we felt bad leaving Izzy at home by herself when we were at work. She hates being alone and started to become very destructive, she ate ALL my plants and was digging holes next to the house (I think she was trying to get in). Now that we have Wilson, we have a running track around the outside of our yard!!

I would love to introduce my two to Chocolate and Honey, I think they would LOVE chasing eachother!! But I don't think I can bring my puppies to Toronto for a holiday from Australia!!

However, I must say that no dog has ever made me laugh like my American Pit Bull Terrier... especially with all they go through- they are very special to me. I am so happy I ended up with this breed, I really needed a 60lbs. and growing pup who thinks he's a lap dog, makes me laugh and smile constantly, loves to do tricks, and is a well rounded sweet baby boy.

I wish they could have met :(

my favorite is an English Cocker Spaniel I actually met some the other day and they were so sweet I just know it is the right dog for us. I do also like the big dogs like golden retreivers, newfies and saint bernards.

WOW This is an old thread from 2001! Somebody's been doing some diggin'!

Well, I'd have to say my favorite breed is the Pit Bull but only because I own 2! But before I ever got my baby boy, Copper, I really loved Great Danes! Some day I'll probably have one but it won't be for at least 12 years(hopefully more which means my dogs will live longer)! I also like the standard poodle and Weimeraners(sp??). I also like Mastiffs too! Oh and Afgahn Hounds and Grey Hounds and Italian hounds!! I have too many favorites!! I love them all!!

I have a huge list of dogs that I have researched that I would LOVE to own. But seeing as I think this thread is more directed at a breed you have had some experience with and therefore dubbed your favourite, I would have to say: American/English Foxhounds (surprise, surprise!! ;) )

Although sometimes I do wish I had a more responsive and attentive dog, like a Beauceron!

But how could I live without a goofy hound!??

That is HILARIOUS, Lissa. xD

That's why I like hounds. Crazy, funny, cute, affectionate, lovable...and hard to train.

Newfs, dobies, Weims (they're so stubborn though), huskies, pugs and anything huge (with doggies, I feel the bigger the better). I also have a soft spot for labs and lab mutts.

I grew up with dobies, a newf, a lab, and for a tiny period, a pom. I love dobies, but I could never have one again. I'd spend all my time comparing it with my beloved red dobie. He was my soul mate and I never want any dog to ever remotely be compared to him. They all deserve to stand on their own.

I really want a newf, but I can't buy from a breeder as long as there are doggies to adopt...

With Boo, I get all the good personality of the newf (and the hugeness), without the hair. But he's got the Weim stubbornness and goofiness. A friend of mine saw Boo tired for the first time yesterday. She was stunned-- he gets the newf eyelid-droop when he's tired. It's really gross. With Jemma, I get all the good parts of the husky-- she is the reason I like huskies. She showed my what people see in them. The lab part takes the edge off and makes her swim.. :)

Here they are last Christmas. (jemma is being very submissive-- she doesn't like to be placed... :o )

Kissmutt- I always thought the technical name for that breed was Fruu Fruu dogLOL!
Anyway, although my favorite breed now would have to be my own "pit bull" or Staffy Bull. Before I actually owned a dog my Fave was Newfie and St Bernard, I now really like Burmese Mountain Dogs too. Big and Fluffy thats how I liked them! Rocky was an unplanned parenthood situation, he has no fluff, but I wouldnt trade him for all the fluffys in the world. :)

I have never had a BMD or a St.Bernard yet. But I love the look and feels of them too. Great Pyrnese (sp??) facinate me as well. I can just imagine the hair on the couch !

There isn't any breed of dog I don't like. When I was a kid I was bitten badly by a Bouvier. To this day they intimidate me, and I just can't help myself. When I walk up to one, I just know I am giving off nervous vibes, and that is not a good thing to do to a strange dog! I think I need threapy from a Bouvier Pychiatrist :)

I would have to say my number one favourite breed is the "Levi" breed. Haha!

But I do have to say that I love Pugs, English/French Bulldogs, APBT, Vizsla (the correct spelling slipt my mind), Boston Terriers, Cao De Fila De Sao Miguel, and all the hounds are gorgeous...

Okay I know you all have seen this one already and I will have more soon, but once again my favorite is the English Cocker Spaniel. Although I do like all dogs once we get Joey all settled we may consider getting a nice mutt too.

I'm a sucker for the scruffy mutts of the terrier variety. Always amazed at how much high energy badness can be jammed into such a cute face.

I have too many faves to pic just one... or two...Australian Shepherd, Husky, Borzoi, Standard Poodle, Papillon, Boston Terrier, Weimeriner, Dalmation, to name a few.

The red Border Collie looks a lot like my Aussie, no wonder people get her confused.
