what is your favorite breed of dog?
http://postimage.org/image/a8sh5xbdl/ I just got a minature Schnauzer 2 weeks ago
The French Bulldog. I used to have one for more than 11 years & I could say it is a perfect breed...
Goldies or Labs. They have great temperaments and are a lot of fun.
I like Newfoundlands.
All thos ones Ive been around were great. They remind me of bigger labs.
2nd would be a chespeake bay retriever. Watching them guys recover ducks in the open water is somehting to behold.
I get to vote twice, once each for my chocolate/white Cocker Spaniel boys. They are the sweetest, funny little companions ever! I am posting as one licks my leg and the other is circling around in search of his racquetball...a tool for attention whenever I pick up a book or the iPhone.
Jack Russel terriers
Lap dog - Cavalier King Charles Spaniel - my parents have two they are awesome.
Sport Dog - German short haired pointer
Big dog - Canis Corso
German shepherds or Siberian Huskies
Shiba Inu. Smallest member of the Akita family
any mix of those breed= smart, cuddly, loyal
PS: when I saw the thread, I thought OP meant of ****ty guys haha
Standard Schnauzer...loyal, smart, and don't shed (much)
My lab was out Sunday picking up a 3 man limit of ducks.... That's 18 birds... She's was sound asleep on the ride home.
Welsh terrier. Smart, fun, handsome, sweet. Singing talent a special bonus.
Thats awesome man.
I had a friend growing that had a CBR. dog got hit by a car crossing the street to bum some fried chicken. Next time it would stop on the shoulder and check traffic before crossing.
We had this other guy that did the rescue excersies with his goldens. He would tell the dog to sit while he walked 200 yards away and placed a dummy on a corn filed. then come back. Dogs woud run out in the field 200 yards away, and look back. The guy would blow his whistle and point his arm ina direction and the dog would walk in that direction until he stopped blowing his whistle. Then look back for more direction until the guy placed him close enough to the dummy. Thats what i remeber anyway I was like 12 at the time watching the guy. It had to be similar to that. pretty incredible
It was pretty amazing
This should be a poll. I vote anything miniature! Or a big ole lab
Which one of you here sleep with your dog ?
Hard to beat Goldens, although Belgian Malanois' are very cool dogs, too.
I like Mastiffs (English, American, Bull). Intimidating and protective of their families but gentle and loving with children. My puppy James showed amazing instincts early. He was very watchful and loving with my youngest son who is Autistic and was very protective of him. My son can be a flight risk and James always stayed close to him.
Laborador Retriever would be my first choice, followed by a Bichon Frise.
Yellow lab or black lab retrievers?
I have to get one someday.....
Beagles are true pals, too.
When my black lab was still with us, she did. Total bed hog, and a great 90 lb. lap dog, as well...she's been gone 5 years, now. Wife and I are finally ready to get another dog.
My Lab/Rhodesian Ridgeback mix in my avatar pic sleeps with me every night. Thank god I have a queen sized bed as his 120lbs takes up about 75% of the bed when stretched out.
I used to sleep with my German shephard mix when I was child. I will
get my dog after I purchase a house soon. Or maybe I will have children first before a dog. I have to wait and see how it goes
My two Cockers let me sleep with them...it sometimes is an adventure getting under the covers!
These are my two GSP sweethearts. They are part of family and I'll be very sad when they go to heaven one day. Best dogs I've ever had.
My Jack Russell X
Dogo Argentino. These are gentle giants.
right now i can't have a dog but when time will be ready i would get a German shephard.......I literally grew up from the age of 3 to 12 with this dog. being together every single day discovering the country side fileds. it was an amazing esperience.
i still miss him
Many, Large Dogs- German Shepards, smaller dogs- Jack Russell
Best answer in the thread except they ain't 2nd...
My favorite breed is Siberian Husky. My wife's favorite is Cocker Spaniel. So, we went out and got one of each. They're both fantastic dogs!
I also love Jack Russell Terriers, Akitas, Beagles and Collies
that dog is so cute
Awesome dog. Im so close to getting one. My parents are livnig with me at the moment and along came two of moms dogs. One was a shepard mix, he passed about 2 motnhs ago. The other is a pitbull mix who is 17 years old now. I dont want to introduce another dog while henessey is still in the house. But as soon as mom and dad finsih the house dads fixing up Im getting a newf. I might get a CBR as well so they each have a freind to go swimming with. I dont why I like dogs swimming so much but ever since I was a little guy I also wanted a dog I could take swimming.
I assume he is great with the little guy. Probably dont let no one get close. If I ever have kids they will grow up togehter with a puppy. Again its me doing what i always wanted as a kid. But so what dogs are awesome.
I have three dogs, and people tell me I shouldn't have a favorite, but I do. My baby Beagle girl is the sweetest, most amazing dog I have ever come across. So Beagles get my vote. They are such a docile, good natured breed, in fact, a lot of companies conduct some pretty horrific tests on them.
Great Danes are my favorite breed.
They are reasonably intelligent, loyal, and usually are good around children. They are somewhat goofy but can also be protective and threatening when needed. The only downside is that like a lot of the large breeds, they don't tend to live very long.
Just about any dog gets my vote but in the end I have to say you almost can't go wrong with a Lab. I'm partials to yellows. They are big but if raised right you just don't have to worry about them with family, friends or pretty much anyone including other dogs. Fortunately we don't need a watch dog so just want an easy going fun worry-free companion.
Smart, keen noses, playful and active but can basically be big lap dogs at the end of the day and of course...they retrieve! They make great hide-and-go-seek buds for the kids too. Our previous did get in the habit of sleeping in the bed, but I put the kibash on this one doing the same. My sleep is more important and he just took up too much room! He sleeps with my daughter...not as much of a space issue. The only bad thing I can think of is it hurts too much when they pass...
Here's Penny. We put her down a couple of months ago when we found out she was in the advanced stages of leukemia.
Here's our other Golden Girl, Darla
Slightly scared of dogs, love the way huskies look, like the Cairn terrier too.
Yeah, Otis is awesome with the kids, a big teddy bear, and he is practically a life guard in the water. I'm 220 lb and he easily tows me in to the shore. We got him here:
I love dachshund. Had the short-haired tan/black one as a kid and currently have the red-haired one.
My dog thinks I'm her pillow. Always sit/sleep on my lap whenever possible (and she has the nerve to complain/growl when I have to move her). Loves to sleep in the middle of my bed and only give me 1/3 of the bed. Always hogs my blanket too! Despite all of this, I still love her so very much *sigh* I guess she trained me pretty well
