which dog do you like best
I like yorkie puppies
Border Collies and German Shepherds(but it is getting really hard to find good GSDs anymore)
I’m not sure if you mean which one of your own dogs you like the best or which dog breed. Anyway, of course Cavalier King Charles Spaniels are my favorite breed LOL. As for my own pack, I love them all but Laverne demands more of my attention because she is a diva!
I’m partial to Shelties, have had four of them.
Dobermans are my favorite, someday I’ll have another one, and Pitbulls are a close second.
I’ve been Pugged!
lol yes you have Sandy!
I think if I couldn’t have a Cavalier, though, I’d pick from pugs, papillons, Pomeranians or Japanese Chins or toy poodles. Can you tell I like small dogs? LOL!
There’s not a dog I don’t love but if I went small, it’d be Boston, Frenchie or Tibetan spaniel!
Aussies and Labs! They are both so energetic and loyal, and labs are kinda goofy too 🙂
Greyhounds of course 🙂 Bloodhounds, Irish Wolfhounds, All American Mutts too
I love Jessie, my blue heeler but…there’s something about a border collie…
I had Blue Heelers before my BCs and I loved them, but you are right, there is something about a Border Collie.
BIG ones 🙂 On my list are Irish Wolfhounds, Great Danes, English Bull Terriers and the rest of the bully breeds, German Shepherds… some day I’d like a well bred Golden Retriever though. I love my retriever mix 🙂
Poodles for their non-shedding abilities! I’d also love a well bred blocky golden retriever. Dare I say a golden doodle?
Well, I am a little partial to the Australian Cattledog myself (we have two of them at the moment, one of whom is also mixed with German Shorthair). They have been the most loyal dogs I have ever had (grew up with a basset/beagle mix, who was also an awesome dog). Ours are actually both pretty mellow for their breed(s), but active when we want to be – though that could be because they can wear each other out wrestling!
I would love a Border Collie, Rottweiler, or German Shepherd someday, though I am kind of sold on the 40lb size dogs right now. I also LOVE any bully-mix, and we would have considered adopting one if we knew for sure where we’d be living and owned our own home (landlords here won’t allow them, and we are early in our careers and may have to move to another city eventually).
Really though, any dog that needs a home.
I am another fan of BIG dogs. Great Danes are my favorite! I love all 155 lbs of my rescued boy, Max. I also like Irish Wolfhounds, Borzois, and Shiloh Shepherds. The only little dog I would consider is a Pembroke Welsh Corgi.
I’m also a sucker for senior dogs. We’ve adopted four senior dogs.
Before this last year I would have said goldens. I’m pretty obsessed with my sheltie now though, so she may change my mind
I’m a fan of a different dog every day of the week it seems. I like herding breeds a lot, but when I finally got one, I ended up with this ultra anxious dog-aggressive critter. I love him, and know he’s not your average example for an Aussie/Kelpie, but I doubt I’ll get a herder again unless I get something that needs to be herded.
Mutts I will probably always have, I’ve never had a purebred (my lab is the closest. She’s half GSD, but there’s not a trace of it in her looks or personality – she just has a not-so-soft bite is all).
I’m ultimately a sucker for bully and giant breeds. I love anything with a square head, loyal heart, and silly disposition (I owned an APBT/Rott/Lab, and he had all those qualities. He only lived to be 2, but he was the most memorable dog I’ll ever have)
Ever since I was little and saw the movie “Fluke”, I have been in love with Irish Setters. I adore their coat color (copper-ish, looks like a shiny Fall leaf, it is gorgeous). Also, as of recently, I like Australian Shepherds – really pretty dogs! I am noticing an affinity in me toward longer-haired, flowy, copper-ish/brown/golden coats. I have never owned a setter or an Aussie, yet, and maybe won’t ever (I would MUCH rather adopt a mutt in need than buy a pure-breed), so I can’t speak as to their personalities, but beauty-wise, those are my picks.
As for character, of course, I love my furry baby (not a baby anymore – he is a big guy at 13 lbs and around 1 year old now) Bruno. I would rarely choose a small breed over a medium or large breed, but he stole my husband’s, and then my heart too. We love his face, muscular body (yes, he is STRONG for a 13-lb pup. One of his nicknames is “muscle-pup”), soft fur, pied pattern, everything about him. Because of him, I notice more Rat terriers/Jack Russells and have a positive view of them. But unless another little one steals our hearts again, I would like a bigger dog for our next friend.
I have noticed, at least locally, when I take Bruno to the dog park, we enter a dilemma – he loves to play and rough-house with big dogs, so we put him in the big dog pen, and sometimes owners of larger dogs get nervous for the little guy and pull their dog away when they start roughing it with Bruno. So sometimes he can’t even play much because of his size. On the other hand, when at the small dog pen, a lot of small dog owners freak out at the slightest grunt (he is a vocal one… Never aggressive, just likes to snort, grunt, growl, and sneeze a ton during play) or hump from Bruno because they fear for their little yorkies or chihuahuas. So he doesn’t get to play much there either… I feel like often he just doesn’t like to play with small dogs period. So thank goodness he has some good small and big furry friends to schedule play dates with and rough-house galore! 🙂
Definitely it’s Shih Tzus. No question!
Boxers, English Staffys, Pugs, Boston Terriers & the Pit Bull they have a bad rap in life, I feel for this breed..
I’m a fan of the big dogs. Great Danes are my favorite. I also would like a Shiloh Shepherd and a Borzoi one day.
Yorkies are my favorite breed and golden retrievers are my second favorite!
DaneMom, giant breeds are definitely my favorite overall (okay, right next to a good APBT or Staffie rescue). I’ve ALWAYS wanted a Borzoi as well! If only I could find a practical reason to get one, hahaha. Maybe one day there will be one as a rescue pup though, never know! 😀
Dobermans will always be my favorite. I miss my Moose, he was the best dog ever! Pit bulls are right up there, but I can’t own one because of the stupid insurance companies. I have the next best thing, my little pittie/border collie mix. Bailey is the best! 🙂
and I just realized I answered this question before, on page one, but I have no recollection of it, lol! Damn it sucks getting old! :/
Rat terriers because i have 2. I like their size and how smart they are. Mine are 5 months old and i have had them since they were 8 weeks old.
Their names are Oreo and Roxie, a brother and sister.
I’ve always had labs and goldens. Love them both. We lost our lab last summer and are finally bringing home a golden doodle May 2! We’re very excited.
I love many breeds and mixes, but Bull Terriers are first on the list.

Rescue is my favorite breed 🙂 I like Labs and Treeing Walker Coonhounds but a rescued mutt is top of the list.
