Default Breeds You'd Like to Own & Why!

I was quite curious. What breeds do you hope to own in your lifetime, or what are your general favourites and why?

Heres Mine.
I dont think i'll own another Shepherd. No other dog could compare, and I would like to try new breeds.
I would love to own some Norweigan Lundehunds. They are so wonderfully unique, it just makes me wonder how i would ever manage to find one to actually own!
I also hope to own some cockers, springers and definately Irish and English setters. They are beautiful and have such personality and grace.

If I ever have a large enough house, I would hope to own a St Bernard or a Leonberger, and definately in my old age I would love to own a British Bulldog or a Basset Hound. They are small, relatively un-crazy.. And also beautiful animals!

I hope I live long enough
AND I hope the rescue organisations havent got tired of me by then!
Tell me what yours are

I love Aussies I think if I got a second dog it would be another Australian Shepherd or maybe an Australian Cattle Dog

Wow, this could be a long list but here goes:

I've owned a St. Bernard and as much as I loved Corey Dee what a mess she made - slober, slober, slober. I lived in Las Vegas at that time if you can imagine!

I've had a Yorkie - definitely would own another one.

Boxer - one of my top choices to own.

Rottweiller - I have a rott/lab mix but man, oh man, rotties are gorgeous dogs.

King Charles Cavalier Spaniel - never met one I didn't love.

You know what? There's not a dog I don't love and would love to have! Sorry, just couldn't say no to any of them.

The breeds I would own are Aussies, Scotties, and German Shepherds.

My close seconds are Rotts and Boxers.

I would love to own a German Shepherd again. Gorgeous dogs. Very protective, but loving.

There are so many different breeds I like, but if we had another dog "after Amber" which I hope is a long way off, it would still be a Briard. They are such wonderful dogs, I could not image having anything else. Next time I might have two them....

I'd have to take into consideration that we do a lot of hill walking across heather so I couldn't get a toy breed it wouldn't be fair. We also walks for hours so it has to be a dog that has stamina. So


Irish Water Spaniel - I'd own in a heartbeat. They are such clowns and naughty - but not destructive. They just want to keep you entertained. I didn't believe this until I owned one.

Poodles; lovely intelligent graceful dogs

French/Spanish/Portuguese water dogs - as as Irish Water Spaniels

Oh boy, where do I start. The problem is that I have had so much profession experience with dogs that there are very few breeds that I haven't met a represenitive of which that I haven't fallen in love with.

For instance, when I went to the pound to find a playmate for Chewie, I came a hairs breath away from adopting a beautiful little Welsh Terrier, this dog was not only beautiful, but had the cutest personality. And I love terrier spunk, grew up with a cairn, I have always wanted an Airdale, I still wonder if I should have taken that dog, but don't regret the boxer I ended up adopting, while boxers are dogs I'm nuetral on, I do have a thing for the mastive breeds and a boxer more fits my tiny house than the old English mastive or great dane I've always wanted.

Don't even get me started on Borzoi's, not only do I think they are poetry in motion, but I have been in love with a few. Which leads into the Irish wolfhounds, greyhounds, saluki's, and Scottish deerhounds. Again, too large for my tiny house.

Plus I have a thing for the small hairy ones, shih tzus being very much a personal favorite. I have been around hundreds of them and have yet to meet a bad natured one, plus being an ex show groomer of them, it's not a big deal for me to keep them cute and fluffy.

Then again, I find myself without a mix breed for the first time in as long as I can remember, nothing wrong with good old, just a dog, type of dog.

In short, I have a wide range when it comes to dogs I admire and would love to have if I had the time, money and space. But in the end, it's my beloved standard poodles I always come back to. I just can't imagine my life without one in it.

A REAL/standard Poodle.

A pit, rott, or some type of "bully" breed.
