So many . . .

Scotties and Shibas of course, and all the bully breeds, all the mastiff-type dogs (I'd be here all night if I listed the breeds), Shih Tzu, GSD, Rottweiler, poodles (especially the standards), Cavalier Spaniel, Brittany, all the sighthounds, the herding breeds. So, really, all sorts

There certainly are a lot of BIG dog lovers out there. I am not a fan of small dogs, I am always afraid of steppping on them, or loosing them on our property. But my pick would be...

1. Vizsla
2. German Shorthaired Pointer
3. undecided, maybe a Springer Spanial, or American Cocker, but I dont like grooming, takes too much time, something I never have enough of.

Since attending shows I have seen and met a lot of really interesting looking dogs, and everytime I go I think maybe someday I would like one of those, but I think I will ALWAYS be a HUGE Vizsla lover.

hmmm. everybody loves my beanies yet not one single person has mentioned "akitas" as being in their favorite dog breeds... or is the breed just not common enough? (which i really don't mind at all, LOL)

seriously, imo a lot of people love the looks of certain dogs, the way they are kept their beauty, size, magnifecent but are not the right dogs for them. your dogs ARE magnifecent and people love to look at them.

well they're a hard-to-handle breed, definitely not a dog for most people... but so are great danes, mastiffs, malamutes etc and people LOOOVE them, ha ha!

on the other hand, haven't seen alot of irish wolfhounds on the list or afghans, rhodesian ridgebacks, african boerbeols, argentine dogos... all on my favorites

I really shouldn't adopt a dog that weights more than me. I would make an exception for a Pyrenee. Or maybe an Akita that doesn't pull on his/her leash

1. Border Collie
Although I am not in the position right now to give that breed the amount of mental/physical exercise they need, I love their personalities and would love to own one in the future to promote in agility and herding trials.

2.Australian Shepherd
Again, another breed that I love for their personalities, in addition to their "looks". I'd want to stick with a puppy from working x show lines for this breed, but I'd love to own one for conformation/agiliy.

3.Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever
When the time comes, this will be my next purebred dog. I've actually picked out a breeder already... I love this dog's 'looks', work ethic and temperament. They love to work, but have a definate "off" button.

4. Shih Tzu
The only breed that I own now that I would love to own again - I just love everything about them.

My all-time favorite, no one comes close, is the HOVAWART in black-and-tan. Not only is it a beautiful dog to look at, it's also a wonderfully intelligent and intuitive dog. Originally bred to watch the farm (hof = courtyard/ farmyard + wart = guard) it would stay home and watch over houses, equipment and people while it's cousin the GSD was out watching the sheep (Schaefer = sheepdog). The breed almost disappeared, but some smart soul managed to get it back up, and I will never ever have another dog as wonderful as Rafal!

It's not a very well known breed, and I can't see them ending up as rescues, but maybe the Hovawart Club has some for rehoming, it is a large dog after all, and some people may not be able to keep one that size for different reason.

Second? Do I have to? OK, the Husky personality is terrific, if they could stop RUNNING AWAY all the time and break their collars, harnesses and leashes!

I also loved my brindle Great Dane, she was adorable.

Buzz's Mom swears by golden, but they get adopted so quickly at the SPCA, I was thinking maybe a black lab.



My husky is only 2, unless there's some type of miracle in her personality where she can get along with NEW dogs not only dogs in her pack, I will only be having one dog in my household for the next 13 years.

Well of course Mastiffs and Great Danes and any giant breed. But those I said before but I have to add American Bulldogs and English Bulldogs. Those are my smaller breed choices.

1. Cocker Spaniels. I love the expresive faces, silky fur (yeah, I know, lots of grooming!) and the way they follow you around the house just to soak up your vibes.

2. German Shepherds. Intelegence, loyalty and beauty, all in one package. My best friend when I was growing up was my GSD, Maxi.

3. Bichon Frise. Who could resist those black eyes and button nose. The name says it all "curly haired lap dog". Une boite de tissue, bien sur!

I guess I'm in the small dog camp. I like to get cuddly with my pets. The GSD was my childhood pet and my parents still have pictures of me as a very little girl taking a nap with my head on Maxi's flank.
