Re: What's Your Favourite Breed of Dog?+Which Breeds Have You Owned or Currently Own?
I always thought Bull Terriers were the coolest dogs. I only found out recently that there is a smaller version of them, I've seen a couple of those recently.

I've never owned a dog. When I was a kid I read a lot of Albert Payson Terhune and loved collies, but I feel like the breed has been so run down. Anyone want to comment on that, I'd be interested. Anyway I could probably skip dealing with all that hair. As a kid it appealed to me, hours of grooming.

If I lived where I could have a dog, and wanted one, I would look for a Bull Terrier I think, but whatever I got, it would have to be a rescue, too many need good homes.
 Quoting: Vision Thing


I would have gotten into collies but the show dogs don't really look much like Lassie now. I have read that a lot of them have had their brains bred out, like with GSD, even though my dream as a kid was to breed collies. There are farm collies, which are supposed to be the kind that don't have the elongated head, though honestly I prefer a larger dog but they look nice -

We had a really loving German Shepherd who's father was papered, but he had to have Golden Lab in him past the 7 or more generations. So our dog, Buffy, was a Golden German Shepherd and she was wonderful loving soul.

Abby (border collie) was a rescue from an animal shelter. I got her when she was 6 months old.

I never buy from stores, only adopt through shelters but that's not likely anymore since they don't like single males adopting animals and are becoming complete nazis about it.

I tried to adopt a husband for Abby recently and was turned down because of "suspicious neighbors" (I live next door to an Arabic couple who are the most wonderful people you'd ever meet.)

We have 3 American Bulldogs, and a Boxer/English Bulldog-Hybrid. i will never get anything else than a Bulldog. Amazing characters, absolutely loyal, protective but nevertheless friendly to visitors, they are clowns, best friends, bed-thiefs, family-members, snoring like a chainsaw, drooling like a waterfall but so fucking smart that you think they are more like humans than dogs. Thats my statement anyways: It's not just a dog - it's a Bulldog! They live all in the pack with us in the house. And if the SHTF i have even kevlar-vests for em with some other little gadgets on em - so they are my personal defense-army....lol

I love almost all dogs. It's hard to say favorite- I had a chihuahua love child for 18 years named Squanto... he was beautiful.

Now I have a rescue chiweenie named Echo. He's totally different- and now I love him!

Then there is Budly, my yellow lab- who couldn't love a yellow lab?

We have a blue heeler cairn terrier mix rescued a few years ago. She is the best dog we ever had. She is not much of a looker and suspicious of strangers, but so gentle and obedient.

My daughter's blue heeler is the greatest dog ever. He is super smart and fun. We adore him. We had cairn terriers before that were great snugglers and clowns but quite stubborn.

I am also caring for my mother's papillon. He was spoiled rotten and thinks he owns the joint already. We are trying to teach him his place in the pack but it is no easy task.

I will probably look for more rescue dogs in the future. We also have had two brittany spaniels and a german shorthair pointer because my husband loves to hunt. They were a bit harder to train but good dogs, especially because we had small children at the time. Cairn terriers are not super great with little ones around.

I LOVE labradors. I owned two of them when I was little (or my family did, rather), but unfortunately don't have one now :( I also really like the Great Pyrenees, but have never interacted with one. The place we live in now doesn't allow pets, but as soon as we get the chance to, I'd love to get a lab. Any color :)

I have a boxer/shepherd mix. His mom was rescued from the pound and gave birth at the shelter. He is the best dog I have owned yet. All he wants to do is play. He gets along great with other dogs and loves my 2 boys.

My other dog is a cattle dog/ basset. He has the coloring of a cattle dog but is short like a basset. He's pretty smart and is definitely a lap dog. Both my dogs are great and they both love my boys so that's a big bonus and they are both from rescues.

I've had a German Shepherd that lived to be 15yo and currently have a Border Collie. Both are awesome dogs but the Border Collie is extremely smart and is very protective.
Both were rescues BTW.

Re: What's Your Favourite Breed of Dog?+Which Breeds Have You Owned or Currently Own?
I absolutely love my beagle. She is loving, loyal, and incredibly smart. She loves to play ball, cuddle, and be ineteractive in general. Beagles are medium-sized dogs...about 40 lbs. Mine has a beautiful coat of swirled black, brown, and white. Her ears are long and feel like velvet. However, I will warn you. DO NOT GET A BEAGLE UNLESS YOU HAVE A BIG BACK YARD. When they are puppies, they go through a terrible chewing phase. You will not want them in the house. Mine used to howl alot...made a protective guard dog..until the neighbors complained and threatened to call the police. We tried the shock collar and it didn't work. We wound up having to snip her vocal chords. Our neighbors are just not nice people at all. But anyway, she's a great dog.

Re: What's Your Favourite Breed of Dog?+Which Breeds Have You Owned or Currently Own?
Dachshunds are fun. We have a smaller one, not a mini but smaller. She is a few years old, but still acts like a puppy and just loves to play. She is affectionate and will follow people all over the house. She'd like to sleep in the bed with us, but she does have a tendency to chew when bored.

For such a small dog, she can generate a lot of heat. This is good for in the winter to snuggle with her, but she is too hot to snuggle with in the summer.

She loves a squeaky ball and will play with it by herself but likes to have someone throw it. We had another Dachshund that had learned to climb the steps, drop the ball down the stairs, and then go after it. He'd go up and down the stairs all day and amuse himself with his ball. He'd like a person to throw the ball but if you got tired of throwing it, he'd just use the stairs. She never learned this although she saw him doing it. The male would bring you the ball and let you take it from him. She would bring it to you but drop it before she got to you. I can't get her to actually give it to me. She just runs to me with the ball and then drops it near me.

We have a dog run in the yard and she goes out to use the bathroom and chase squirrels. We have moles in the yard and she likes to try to dig them up. She is just doing what she is bred to do, go after small rodents.

When we go to bed at night sometimes she gets to sleep with one of us, but mostly she has to go into her kennel. She doesn't like it but doesn't fuss to much. She only whines if she has to pee, then someone has to get up in the middle of the night to let her go out. It isn't every night though. She can sleep all night without bothering anyone. Someone is usually up in the morning early to let her go out.

She's a good dog and doesn't really shed. She does get an odor sometimes and needs a bath.

I have heard that Dachshunds can be aggressive and I can see this is true. She is a little thing but will aggressively bark at other dogs or any strangers that come near our house. She loves all the family and people that she knows.

If you are ever mean to a Dachshund they will not forget it.
If they love you, they won't forget you either.

Can someone who has a wolf hybrid talk about how you get dominance over them? How do you know when they are starting to try to test you? What do you look for and how do you respond to it? It sounds very challenging and not for everyone. I don't think I'd ever have a large dog unless it was a laid back one like a lab or golden retriever.

I currently have a neurotic Malinois (ex police dog). My favorite, though, was an Austrailian Cattle Dog I had named Spot. Loved that dog.
