Depends on what I need the dog for. If it's hunting, I am all for a pointing lab. There are better upland breeds but that pointing lab is also an excellent family dog and a fairly calm companion compared to others. All in all, even if you don't hunt them, a lab is a lab. They're incredible dogs and very loving.

My second choice for a dog would be a German Shepherd. Why? Because they are incredible family dogs and are extremely intuitive. They're great guard dogs and most can ascertain whether a new person is a threat or a friend. Some of them can be rather aggressive in some circumstances though, so take care to maintain control of any breed of dog that has been placed in an unfamiliar situation.

I like big breeds, like Rottweilers, Dobermans, Pitbulls, Boxers, Mastiffs, Cane Corsos, and the like. They're such big sloppy babies that are good for walking in shady areas. I love it when my dog jump kicks guys that try to come too close.

I get nervous around toy-sized dogs. I feel like I'd crush them by accident or trip over them because they're so tiny.

English Greyhound and deer head Chihuahua are my top favorites, because I've lived with both. My first dog was a mellow and quiet Chihuahua, and I've had English Greys for the last ten or so years.

so long as the dog is nice, i really don't care much about the breed. i can find cuteness & loving behavior in most dogs i meet, i like them. as someone who's worked at a shelter some of the nicest dogs you'll meet are rescue mutts. i mean, there are a few i find to be particularly adorable, but not that much over others: goldens, shepherds, shiba inus, akitas, pugs, corgis, pitties and pyranees, but they're not much "better" than any other breed in my eyes.

my pup is what's presumably thought to be shepherd-mutt and i wouldn't have her any other way.

I've had dogs all my life, mainly pitbulls (which despite the public opinion) are all loveable and not ferocious at all.... out of the 4 we've had over the years, they'd sooner lick you to death then bite.

However, I've always liked the husky, just didnt like that they grew so much. So I love the newer breed the pomky (pomeranian/husky. Sadly not all of them look like below but thats the look they're trying to breed them as) those are full grown, Height: 10-15 inches Weight: 20-30 pounds)

border collies had one (mind you it wasn't a full border colie was mixed with something dumb most likely) had 1 for 15 years was a good dog

white German shepherd. had one for 4 years very nice but also not the most obedient dog,t wouldn't hurt anyone purposely but still would get into trouble without someone strict. developed serious epilepsy likely was a pure or mostly German shepherd.

a mut. generally healthier, though i would want to know which breeds are in the mix to try and get one that's more likely to not have behavioral issues or overlapping health risks.

worker dogs. their generally healthier then their show dog counter parts plus some of the things people do to/breed into show dogs is just dumb and even outright animal abuse.

Agreed. People don't realise working dogs like the pitbull aren't for the average dog owner. You need to assert yourself and have it exercising or the dog will become destructive. Also no matter what kind of dog it is, they shouldn't be left alone with small children and infants. It's not the dog, it's generally the owner.

Yeah I can agree with that. There isn't a dog breed I hate, dogs are great creatures! Also thank you for working in a shelter, there's to many dogs being abandoned out there.

Big breeds are great (Especially for protection), the two huskies my auntie owned would howl at anything that looked at me when I walked them alone as a small kid.

I had a Maltese Shih Tzu Bichon Frise mix for a good portion of my life and I did occasional nearly step on him.

Interesting choice, unfortunately I don't see any Dogo Argentino's around here since they're banned in Australia.

Exactly, people only see Pitts as fighting dogs that just want to attack and kill whatever they come across. If you dont let the dog know you're in charge and take good care of it why would it listen and be the pet that youd want? Also yeah, no matter what breed the dog is dont leave it alone with a child, its still just an animal and anything could kick in at any time.

On another note, you're lucky as hell ive always wanted a husky or even a wolf but im pretty sure no house in the city would allow wolves and theres never been enough space for two bigger dogs. Pitt & Husky.
