      I have four dogs, an old lab, a young lab, a rescue German shepherd and a leonberger (think huge and hairy).  The leonberger, Alex is a certified therapy dog.  Our children are grown, and we would be lost without this mongrel horde that keeps us busy.  Love them!

      I actually like dogs, but our neighbors do not welcome us to have one, as for most of them dog is a "haram" animal.

        Probably they are Muslims. Tell them that you know me. I am a Muslim and love dogs, have always kept dogs, have dogs now, will always have dogs. From religious point of view, only their saliva is considered "haram". So if one thinks that he / she has touched by saliva, wash that part of the body before prayers. It is as simple as that. What is the fuss about?

        If dogs were "haram", why would Muslim holy book of Quran mention the story of the people of the cave and their faithful guard dog.

        And btw, how can your neighbors influence you so much?

      I have 2. Both old and both rescues by me and both living happy contented lives. One is a Yorkie and the other is a black lab. I got the black lab last year and he is called Dan and he is a sweetheart.

      Just one.  She's a rescue.  Not quite sure what happened to her in her previous life, but it couldn't have been good, seeing as she's got a BB lodged in her back, and is afraid of almost everything.

      We have the one also and like Maddie's she's a rescue/rehome. Had her since last summer. Been through a lot of training with her. She's full of quirks, some irritating beyond reason (like the way she wanders round and round dragging her feet - sounds like an old woman in slippers) and some are down right endearing.

      Wouldn't swap her though. She's beautiful smile

      I have 1 dog named Chloe, a maltese.  She's a good little dog, very timid though since she came from an abusive background.  But she's getting better and better every day.  I also have 1 cat who doesn't like Chloe at all.  But they do well as long as Chloe keeps her distance, which she does.

      They never hate me or not like what I say. They forgive everything and always love you unconditionaly.
      They never want for anything but your love. They never judge you.

      We have two boisterous, affectionate, and well-behaved (most of the time) golden retrievers.  Here are Kosmo and Kramer (aka "the boys") on our farm in Missouri.  The other dog is Sabrina; she is no longer with us.

        But good news now, my daughter is moving in with me and we will have her macho but also loving mixed breed (Shar-Pei, German Shepherd, Chow). It will be nice to have a dog in my house again.

      I have two Shih-tzus.  Angel and Coco.  I know their names are generic but Angel was a shelter dog and Coco was a friend's dog that was moving into a no pets allowed apartment.  They are lovable and keep me company while I wait for my kids to come.  They stay with me 1/2 the week so Angel and Coco are my buddies!

      My mom has two dogs, Bonnie and Clyde. When they were puppies I could hold each of them in one hand. I actually have a picture of me holding them floating around somewhere.

      They are both quite old now, and Clyde is blind in one eye. So, sad to see how frail they become. I had two cats (Natasha and Koska) and they both died of old age. Natasha was 17, and Koska was 19.
      cats actually live a lot longer than dogs.

      I used to have a dog, but i had to put him to sleep last year, due to a lot of health issues.  Now, I don't even want another dog, as I would hate to replace him.  It's a real shame to, as I love dogs.  just not sure if i want another one again.

        Aw, so sad. My husband said the same thing as you when he had to say goodbye to his beloved Arnold. But the house was so quiet. We ended up going to the animal resuce shelter and found a dog who needed us as much as we needed her.

      I do not have any dogs at home, but I have about 30-40 "adopted" pets that I take care of at the local Humane Society. Because I cannot own a dog at the moment, I live with being able to care for many at a time and get my canine "fix" once a week. Of course, when they get adopted out it is a mix of emotions, but I am so happy when I know they have gone to a good home! And when one leaves, I always get more new ones coming in!

      I have 2 dogs.  Both of them were rescued. 

      Rio, a mixed breed (Catahoula Leopard dog and pointer)is 13 years old.  We found him in north Louisiana at my Dad's house.  Someone had dumped the litter of puppies in December.  He is kind to most other animals (including cats) and is protective of his family group.

      We adopted 2nd Chance the Cocker Spaniel after our First Chance (Cocker Spaniel rescued from I12) was killed.  2nd Chance spent the first 8 months of his life locked in a cage/carrier.  He was seized and the woman was committed.  He's still maladjusted and has arrested social development.

One is our adopted foster (that we will never give up to anyone) who is a lab and american boxer (per the vet)and she has more speed and energy than a high-speed rail train!

      Two Jack Russell Terriers. They're pure energy. The one the left has been my friend for 11 years now, so he's slowing down a bit. He's a real guy's dog, if there is such a thing. The younger one (right) seems frozen in puppyhood and irresponsibility, and he only wants to be kissed and fussed over. He doesn't seem to make good decisions, but we love him anyway.

      3 dogs - my first ever dog for myself (outside of the ones my parents always had) is Romulus - a 90+lb red Doberman who is the prettiest dog I've ever seen, if a bit of a goofball. My fiance has a border collie/spaniel mix, Dora, he adopted as a puppy, and we recently acquired another border collie - Doc. They are quite an entertaining group.

      I personally don't have a dog as with work I don't think we are home enough to give it the best home life.  However saying that we do have a surrogate dog which we have for weekends and sometimes even at Christmas.  She is a lovely old Golden Labrador called Poppy who belongs to friends.  We have her when they go on holiday.  It works really well as she gets our full attention at weekends when we don't work and we get to give her back when we go back to work.  Brilliant.

A few we purchased.  I love Golden Retrievers of which we have 2, but we have a Chow, Beagle, Lab Mix, Wheaten mix, Collie, English Bulldog, Shiatsu, and a couple of Heinz 57.

      I know this sounds REALLY bad, especially coming from a dog lover and  obedience trainer, but my family has one dog, and I can't stand him. I absolutely HATE him. And it is totally my fault. He is a German Shorthaired Pointer, and he has way too much energy than my family can deal with. He gets his walks every day, and he gets to go on runs all the time, at least once a week, but he still has more energy than we can handle. We got him so my husband can go hunting, but then, I trained him in obedience, but not in hunting like I should have. And now he doesn't point anymore, or has any interest in hunting. He just wants to run. I don't have adquate facilities to use for him to exercise or for me to work with him properly. He's just so super annoying! Maybe it's because I am used to dealing with and training Pit Bulls that this super high energy dog gets on my nerves. Anyone have any suggestions for me. Can't give him away, he wants to keep him.
