    What a tough question! (Do cats like dogs anyway? tongue)
    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?"

    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.

    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!

    Golden Retriever.   

    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 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.

    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.

      Have always had German Shepherds, but like most varieties, also had Irish Setters, English Setters, harder to train, but well worth the effort.

    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.
