What dog breed is your favourite and why?

It's just that certain dog breeds pull at our heartstrings a tad bit more than others. And your choice tells a lot about your personality, studies show.

Mine is AKITA INU. What's yours?

I have a fondness for Rat Terriers, but I love them all. ♥

Meet Max, a male Gerberian Shepsky. That's a German Shepard/Siberian Husky mix.
Yes, it's a real breed catagory. This was taken in March when we first got him at 9-10 months old. He weighs in at 50 pounds right now. He looks mostly shepard except for his eyes. But his brain is all husky; smart, quick to learn, demanding, persistent, loyal. We love him but he's such a prima donna pain in the butt. Lol. He's not our first dog, but he's quickly climbing the chart to our favorite. Have to go now. He's telling me his food isn't warm enough so I'll have to reheat it.

@Qualia. Yes, he is. Unfortunately I think he knows it.

When my youngest daughter was 4, and her sisters 7 and 11 we got a Golden Retriever puppy. His puppy and adolescent days were hard, but he grew into the BEST DOG EVER! I loved training him. My troubled and troublesome child told him all her secrets, he was better than a therapist for her and I so wish I could have planted a recorder on him. He was the son I never gave birth to, and the best brother the girls ever had. I'd like to get another dog one day, but not something that big.

I have had two Pit Bulls in my life and love the breed. They're accused of ever type of heinous behavior, but are just big love bugs in reality. Sunny the pit I grew up with would get excited by us boys playing football and occasionally grab the ball so we would chase her and tackle her. The football often didn't survive her jaws. That was her worst crime.

I had a sheltie. She was wonderful.
I also like the hounds.

I like sled dogs, like the Siberian Husky and Alaskan Malamute. I've always loved German Shepherds too. My current dog is 75% Husky, 12.5 Malamute, and 12.5% White Swiss Shepherd (similar to a German Shepherd). She's practically perfect in every way.

WSS are badass. I'd love to meet one sometime. Nice to see old school conformation on them vs what's gone on with GSD today.

I love them all.

Jack Russel, it's a 50 lb dog in a 12 lb package.
Papillon, she's adorable, fast and crazy.
Golden doodle, fun to say, also smart and cuddly.

I fell in love with two … because I had blends of each: Border Collie and Black Lab.. One appeared to think she’d eventually turn into a Human … the other was more than happy being All-Dog smile001.gif

Love Akitas!! We used to raise them when I was a child. They are a wonderful breed.

I don’t get that breed. They fight with other dogs right? I can’t take that dog for a walk off leash or to the dog park.

@Sealybobo They aren't for everyone. They have many positive traits and have a bad reputation like pit bulls. People use them to fight but they were also used to babysit children. Ours were extremely gentle with all us kids an anyone else. They are protective of their people and can be dangerous.
I wouldn't consider them a "dog park" type of dog. Probably not in the city at all. I wouldn't even consider it without a large.well fenced in yard.

I like my small dogs more than anything. Especially with little hair. I also like Rottweilers. My brother has a 130 pound Rott that is the sweetest dog I've ever known.

I grew up with beagles & gun dogs. I love labs. My last dog was a rescued pit/lab mix. Had him 16 years & just lost him last May. I haven't even taken his crate down yet. I am far from ready for another dog. I've decided when I can watch a puppy video without sobbing, I will volunteer at my local animal shelter. My schedule doesn't allow the commitment for a dog at this time.

I hate it when busy people get a dog and walk them for 15 minutes in the morning, go to work for 10 hours, come home and walk the dog for 15, then leave the dog and go out with friends, then come home and go to sleep. Don’t get a dog, My dog gets 45 minutes in the morning and 2 hours of exercise at night. Maybe walking, maybe at a dog park or maybe at a friends playing with her dog. After work is the dogs time. You are all they got. Don’t get a dog unless it comes first.

@Sealybobo Puck went everywhere with me. When I got him as a pup, my sons were still at home & my mom was there. He was alone all of 45 minutes, if that. When I traveled, he went with me, staying in hotels & going to conventions, camping, fishing, you name it. I feel like a part of me is missing since he's been gone.

@SallyInStitches when I got my dog I quit the gym. How am I going to go to lifetime fitness after work for two hours when he’s been waiting for me all day? So now I either go to the dog park where I’ve met tons of new friends or I go to these trails and I let him run in the woods as I walk on the trails. Good exercise. Or in the winter I arrange doggy play dates with this girl I met at the park. Point is anything I do now after work has to involve my dog.

Rott/Lab mixes or in the case of Phife Dawg, a Rott/Lab/Pitt mix. Tosh, in the second photo, is the Rott/Lab mix.

Mine is a tie between pit bull and Bernese Mountain Dog. My Berner was like a pet bear. 130lbs of fuzzy love. The pittie I have now is the most lovable dog in the world. He just wants to snuggle and give kisses all day.

The good old Aussie Blue Heeler Cattle Dog comes first on my list, a close equal place goes to a pure blood Australian Dingo, they are great for keeping Seventh Day Adventists at bay...LOL.
My old and very best Mate, Charlie, died in his sleep aged 15 years, stood beside through the thick and thin of things no matter what.

My bluey, inherited in Thailand when she was ten, name is Beer. Great dog, just a bit stick happy and hates thunder/ fireworks

@powder That seems to be a standard trait with 'blueys' a fear of thunder, fireworks and other extremely loud noises, I think its because they have extremely sensitive hearing. Charlie hated thunder, fireworks and loud noises such as over-loud car exhaust but he loved getting a ride down the driveway on the pillion seat of my Suzuki GS850S motorbike, he'd sit up like a professional with his front paws on my shoulders.

Cairn terriers, and westies. This is the late, great Chopper.
