What a tough question! (Do cats like dogs anyway? )
Oh well I do...maybe Labradors and Cocker Spaniels to begin with.
Pit Bulls all the way! Out of all the dogs I have owned my APBT picked on the training the quickest. Plus they are a sweet breed, just got a bad rap because some knuckle heads doing knuckle head stuff.
I love many breeds of dog but i would have to say my breed of choice is the American Pit Bull Terrier. In the past i have owned many dogs, My beloved boston terrier, Slade, passed away recently and left a huge hole in my heart. We now have a Pit Bull named Bowser and a Boxer named Joda. They both are great dogs.
I like the Boxer. I have owned two 1 female and 1 male. I like the short hair and their attitudes. They are very easy to train.
As one who was raised all his life with German Shepherds and still adores them some "few" decades on, what other breed could I propose?
Who remembers "Rebel" from "Champion the Wonder Horse?"
"Like a blade of lightning flashing 'cross the sky..."
Think they look kinda funny and cute but not afraid to get down an dirty too

Is it okay to say "mutts?"
The truth is I prefer Rottweilers but I'm not good with dogs. I doubt that I will ever own another dog unless some circumstances change and I can be trained (properly) in how to train a dog. My husband also tends to forget that they are animals and not humans an personifies them in a way that is unfair. I would hate to take on a large and intelligent dog only to fail miserably on my end of the deal. Not fair to the dog.
The Rottweiler, we believe that Rottweilers are the most wonderful dogs in the world. Raising a Rottweiler from a puppy can be a most pleasing experience. NEVERTHELESS, they can be dangerous dogs if not raised the correct way. If you want a good dog and house-watcher read on; if you want a vicious beast that you will have no control over, please do not pick the Rotty as you may have some regrets. You must have a Rotty with the same enthusiasm as you would your own child; give it love and care, with responsibility, and it will repay you ten-fold. In fact there is not a lot of difference in bringing up a young dog as there is to bringing up a human child. Both species can learn to be responsible members of society, if encouraged in the right directions.
Although there are obvious differences here between each dog breed, young domestic dogs and any other young creature are basically all the same. If you go back say 100,000 years, it would not be hard to realize that all domestic dogs come from one genetic source. Go back 10,000,000 years and it would be hard to realize that possibly many species on Earth today share or have shared similar DNA.
You might like to note that humans share 99% of their DNA with some chimpanzees. And if you would wish to note further, humans share 40% of their DNA with the humble . . . . . . . . . Banana. Don't look at me!!! Almost cannibalism!!
Jack Russell Terriers are the best. Smart as a whip and total maniacs. They want to be the only baby in the house though, so if I had children.. I'd still get a golden retriever who will take all kinds of kid abuse.
The basenji. No barking, hypoallergenic, not overly bright -which is very desirable in a dog. The smart ones are trouble makers.
Lab/Australian Shepherd mix. They are so smart, a great size, beautiful. We have a 7 month old puppy who's this mix and he is a wonderful dog. I also love Beagles, Beagle/Lab mixes, German Shepherds, and Golden Retrievers.
I've always been a Border Collie fan. I like Huskies and Malamutes as well.
In the "little dog department" Shetland Sheepdogs were always one breed that seemed interesting as do Papillions.
And of course a Coton de Tulear since Wally's one and he's a good dog.
has to be a pug...we have six of them and one very confused greatdane...
Doberman Pinschers are great dogs. They are not like portrayed in the media...very nice, loyal, and sweet dogs!
Rottweilers: they are so intelligent and sweet. When trained well, they are also extremely obedient and people pleasures. I have two I have trained myself, they are two goof balls that love people. I walk them together on the leash each day and people stop to comment on how well behaved they are. Every time I see any dog, no offense, I think Rottweilers are simply the best!
I love (and have raised) Jack Russell Terriers. Also love collies.
They are wonderful. I've had two. My last one died a couple of years ago, and I can hardly wait to rescue another one or two, when I sell my B&B. I'm afraid to rescue one now because I have so many different kinds of people in and out of my Inn. You never know the background of a rescued dog completely, so I would be afraid they might not like men or women, or maybe they would bolt when I opened the front door to let people in, which is frequently.
Hi our family dog is a Sheltie and she is smart and great around the house. She tends to run away some times. One time she went to a bar and got in some how and hid under under a table. until someone noticed and they phoned us to come and get her.That happened twice the second time the barmaid took her home and phoned us in the morning. I do not understand this because normally she hates noise .
My husband loves the Alaskan Husky, but me I like anything kid friendly and fluffy, maybe a Chow Chow.
Dachshunds....very loyal and intelligent for the most part...
Ooooo, there's only one for me:
The German bred Rottweiler -- intelligent, gentle, friendly, trustworthy, family oriented, dedicated, versatile, willing, generous, big hearted (I could go on and on and on....)
My favorite dogs have all been Red Healer crosses.
I like Great Purines, Bullmastiffs, Newfoundlands, APBT and Huskies, but mixed breeds are my favorites...
My dog is a Great Purines/Bullmastiffs/Red Healer/Lab mix. She is smart to a fault, and very protective. She has rid out camp sites of bear and mountain lion. She has defended my children from stray dogs more than once, and successfully rid herself of every other dog that has wanted to fight.
For an indoor dog, I would consider a Jack Russell.
Golden Retriever, which is what i have. Her name is Lady and she is a dainty, beautiful dog with a sweet tooth. ;-)
I love mutts. I have a beagle/labrador and an australian shepherd/lab. The latter is the smartest, funnest, most obedient, loving dog I've ever had. I'm an advocate of getting dogs from shelters. Plus, I worry about pure-breds health. I pretty much love ALL dogs though.
I adore German shepherds! They are so clever and beautiful! They are my passion.
I love labs. They are sooooo sweet and loving. I had a German Shepard as a kid, and he was the best dog anyone could ask for. Now, my house is too small for a big dog. I have a Shih Tzu, and a Boston Terrier/French Bulldog mix. They are so funny cuz they dont know they are little dogs.
My pet is a Maltese that we call Happy!!!
You probably know why, Maltese are always in a happy mode!!!
i have a few favorite breeds. pittbull,argentino dogo,greatdanes,english bulldog. its funny because i have a poodle,and a shitzu lol.
have had lots of dogs over the years, but would have to say two of the breeds have captured my heart. First are the two yorkies i have now and second is the st. bernard we had when i was a child.
I have a boxer and the breed has my heart. They are the most noble and the most gentle dogs w/kids. Plus they are smart as hell too.
Have always had German Shepherds, but like most varieties, also had Irish Setters, English Setters, harder to train, but well worth the effort.
My absolute favs are however Samoyeds and No 1 Labradors.
I have always wanted a German Shepherd and an Australian Shepherd. They're big, cute, intelligent and loyal. Siberian Huskies are also my favorite but the weather here is not really for them .
My favourite breed is the British Utonagan, they are a fairly new breed not yet recognised by the KC. They are bred to look like wolves but have no content in them. I have 3 and also a Beardie (who I love dearly) and a new Puppy GSD x Malamute who is 8 weeks old and more rouble than the rest ;-)
I absolutely adore the South African Ridgeback (also known as lion hunters i heard) and golden Retreiver. Had the 2 of them the last time i had dogs. Tootsie and Jordan. Went into hospital for a couple of months, and before i came back, they had been poisoned.
Still shed tears when i think about the absolute love and affection i had for them, and miss them so much.
I've been so distraught up till and havent had the heart to get another dog since. I still blame myself for leaving them alone.
Now im crying again.

What is your favorite breed or mix of dog & whyI love Boxers. I have owned two boxers now. My first only lived 10.5 years; his name was Rocky & he was a great pet. My current boxer, named Sugar Ray, is also a great pet. Sugar Ray is extremely loyal, faithful and...

I have had German Shepards, mixed breeds, and more recently a Siberian Husky and Shiba Inu. So far, I am most impressed with the Siberian Husky. She has the nice spitz look, is a nice medium size, and absolutely loves people. When we go on walks she always likes meeting people and gives them her...

7 year old Tanner Monk was killed by 2 pit bulls in Texas last week. Another sad tale in the long history of pit bulls. I just had to write a completely factual hub about pit bulls and their history. Tanners death is no joke, what is a joke is not having laws banning these menaces...
