Go, on be honest!

From Websters:

Main Entry: snob Pronunciation: \ˈsnäb\ Function: noun Etymology: origin unknown Date: 1781 1British : cobbler2: one who blatantly imitates, fawningly admires, or vulgarly seeks association with those regarded as social superiors3 a: one who tends to rebuff, avoid, or ignore those regarded as inferior b: one who has an offensive air of superiority in matters of knowledge or taste

so, you would regard your collie as a superior dog over a collie x as it is a pure bred, and not a mere mongrel

I like any dog, regardless of whether its a pedigree, a mix, or a complete heinz 57, apart from a few types of dog which is one another thread, but I still like them dogs, just not as much as other dogs.

I think I am. Aussies just do it for me. Herding dogs are great but Aussies are tops.

Anything else is just a dog....

Yes , but not from attitude I'm a Rott guy but it's more for the size and markings . We picked our pup a GSD/Lab because the markings were very close to that of a Rott . I think all dogs are too close mentally and I'm a fan of them all , but when i am looking for a new family member it's balck and broze the whole way .

Even though I'm stuck on the shorthair as the perfect breed for myself; I don't think I'm a breed snob. It's just that I know this breed best and they're the ones best suited to my expectations of a pet and companion.

IMO if an individuals dog has captured their heart like each of my shorthairs have captured mine over the years; they have the second best dog in the whole wide world. JK

When I'm at the dog park watching the interactions of dogs and owners; each dog seems to me to be the best dog for that owner whether mixed or purebred.

Come to think of it; I may be a breed snob in the sense that I seldom recommend a shorthair as a pet. I'd hate to see the breed go the way of the labrador retriever!

I don't think that anyone wants that to happen to a breed that they love, as with that popualrity comes a whole host of problems.

I don't give a stuff what ''breed'' a dog is or isn't, I prefer to see the dogs personality, that's what pulls me towards them.

Im a big dog fan any dog whatever size or shape think they are all fun to see and learn about and hear of thier story's, there are breeds that just dont do it for me and I wouldnt want to own one but each has a place with someone and I think mixed breeds are great and often much more healthy than pure bred dogs but I am hooked on the schnauzers especially and obviously as I have 4 the standards Im a bigger fan of the pepper and salts than the blacks but thats due to thier differing charachters greys more mischievious lol Im not too sure about some of the designer breeds am yet to be convinced this is being done in the dogs best interest but have an open mind
