I own and show an American Staffordshire Terrier. This isn't a common breed and many people have never seen one. I have been involved with animals all of my life and have been showing dogs for nearly three years.

Don't get me wrong--I love mixed breeds too. As a matter of fact, my last dog was a mix. I was curious though: what breed do the rest of you like and why?

I have a dog that is part Jack Russell and part Dalmation. But, I would have to say I really like Jack Russells. We are thinking of getting one so that Madison has a playmate and will leave the cat alone.:D

Love My Beagle!!
He is a perfect fit for our family, big enough the kids can't squish him but small enough he doesn't take to much space in the house. Beagles are known for being barkers/yowlers but we either trained him well or got lucky and he is really quite.

Now we are looking for a bigger dog to live outside/in garage when we move to more land. Thinking a mix but not sure what mix would be the best for us.

great thread, one of my favorite subjects...

We have two dogs (Fergie and Di). Fergie is a black Scottish Terrior and Di is a blonde American Cocker Spaniel. Di is my "baby" although she's 11 now. She is so gentle and loving and is so willing to please. Now Ferg, my scottie (12) .. she's my manly girl LOL Scottish Terriors can have quite a reputation for being ornery, but I took the time when she was a puppy to socialize her well and train her properly and she has been a fabulous pet. She's friendly to everyone and totally loyal to us. I love terriors for their spunk and energy, and spaniels have a special place in my heart. Before these two, we had an English Cocker Spaniel. Hard to pick one favorite...they all have brought such pleasure to our lives and have been great family pets.

I love my black lab. He's perfect for our family. He's just so much fun. If I could have a small dog, I'd like a papillion (sp?) They are so smart. My husband knew a guy that had one and he would take it to school with him.

We don't have a dog right now, but we plan on buying a Weimariner (sp?). We think they are gorgeous. Besides those, my favs are golden retrievers, and collies.

Well I'd have to say American Eskimo Spitz, we have 2 of them right now and they are so cute.

Even though they are pure white they are not hard to keep clean, but the hair sure does drive me nuts. There isn't a item of clothing or blanket in this house that doesn't have some white doggie hair:(

We have owned 3 of these dogs now and all 3 have had different attitudes, they can be weary of strange people so they need lots of sociallization when they are young.

Keyshound's (sp?) my mom had one and he was wonderful- he died of old age last summer. Great dog and wonderful fur to spin.

We have a mutt- part black lab, part Brittiny, part Dalmation. He looks like a Holstein cow and is nearly as big as one too. He has a black patch on his right hip, that when he sits on his haunches- it makes a perfect heart shape- that's how the kids picked him out of the litter.

I also love collies- had a pure bred one when I was a kid (age 2 til he died when I was 18)

We raised and showed rottweilers when I was growing up-love them, loyal and smart.Problem is they have a short life-only about 9 years. We had a weinmeraner-chocolate with yellow eyes, she lived to 11-she was beautiful, but more loyal to mom rather than the entire family like the rotties. Most recently I had a beagle/jack russel mix that was an incredible little dog. I adopted him as a companion for my aunt who was in a wheelchair, he was perfect. When she had to move to a nursing home he lived out the rest of his years with me. Playful til the day he died-at about 18 years. I miss having a dog so much.
