    We have a Blue Healer, Zoey. She is probably the smartest dog we have ever had. And I've had many. She looks kind of like a Dingo. Fabulous breed. What a great dog.

      Here's an example of a half-grown (8=9 month old) border collie, Dylan. My parents' dog, playing with my son, and gambolling in my parents' bluebells in April, and an an 8 week old puppy.

        Oh my gosh youre son is way too cute and the border collies are beautiful. They are known for their high intelligence.
        I knew this guy once who bred them for shows and man are they ever smart. This one dog he had would go get the mail, open the fridge for a can of beer for him and everything!

    My favorite dog is a Siberian Husky, had one for 12 years until he passed. Now I have 2 fence jumpers, one is a Spitz/Chow Mix Zoey and the other is a Border Collie/Pitt Bull Mix Sasha. Love both like little children, between my dogs and my 3 grandsons who are Fernando 6, Miguel 4, and Jadyn 20 months, I have my hands, my heart, and my house full wink

    If you want a Real Party Hard mate.. it's only a Tibetan Terrier that fits the keg.

    My all time favorite breed is a Great Dane.  They are wonderfully loving, well mannered and funny.  Right now though I have a happy Jack Russell terrier.  She's a good dog with my kids and is small enough to fit in my vehicle.  That's a must for me.

    Since first reading Albert Paysen Terhune as a kid  I've been a Collie fan. However, I consider the Sheltie to be a small Collie

    I have a Black Lab springer spaniel mix, when people ask what breed he is a say a spanidor alot of times people will nod their heads and say " oh ya, I've heard of them" LOL.
    He is a wonderful dog. He's definitely a lover not a fighter He is a great family dog.
    My very favorite breed though has to be the Pug, they are little dogs with a big dog attitude, and so ugly they are cute smile

    1. LondonGirl profile image86
      LondonGirlposted 8 years agoin reply to this

      I'd never get a pug, or ridgeback, though. Far too over-bred, and both (among other pedigrees) far too prone to dangerous, painful genetic problems.

    Akita...they look all cute and fuzzy, but deep down they just want to kill you plus they speak Japanese.

    My favorite breed would have to be an english sheep dog. I think they are so adorable when they are puppies and when they grow up. But I would never own one, their way too high maintenence with all that hair! lol

    Dylan doesn't do anything useful like opening the fridge (-:

    He does, though, know who everyone is - so if someone says, "Where's Lily?" he rushes over to her and barks. He knows my parents, sisters, brother, me, and my son, Isaac. He also knows the two cats' names and can find them, too.

    I just got a new pup at the weekend, a cross between a black labrador and a rotweiller. Its a female and the daughter has called it Ruby after the female character from Supernatural.

    Shes really friendly, tis the training that's a bummer though smile

    This isn't fair.  I like most dogs.  Cairn Terrier, Australian Sheperd, Goldens and Retriever mix, since I have two of those now.  My boys, Strider (Aragon, King of Gondor) and Salem.

    Personally I've always been partial to the big hounds such as the Redbone, Walker Coonhound, and Black and Tan. However, I just adopted my first small dog ever (I haven't even gotten to bring her home yet!) who is a miniature schnauzer/miniature pinscher cross that I absolutely adore. I've never been a big fan of min pins, but I do like schnauzers and the cross obviously did well for her, she's a very smart dog who learns quickly and only barks at disturbances until she sees me and knows I've been informed.
