Favorite Purebred Dogs? - Page 2

post #31 of 52
Although I like the way MANY of the breeds look, I will limit my list to those whose temperments would actually work for me...
My family owns a mutt now, but I will most likely be going with a purebred next time around as I want to know what the temperment will be ahead of time.
I have always loved the working breeds, so the list reflects that somewhat.
Doberman Pinscher
Chart Polski (but there are only ~3 breeders in the US so probably not a possibility...sighthound temperment with just enough "guarding instinct" to warn off robbers, etc.)
Smooth collie
Whippet or italian greyhound
Boarder Collie (if I could get a less energetic one)

Once I get in a house with a nice fenced in yard (and can afford it) I plan on getting either a boxer or doberman
Although I LOVE everything about greyhounds, they will be relegated to a "second dog" unless I'm living with someone, because I really want a dog that will at least alert or preferably act if there is a home robbery, etc. A chart Polski sounds perfect for me, but due to unavailability, not an option.

I am a big fan of mutts but I would love to have another doxie someday.

I love collies (my first dog ever)
Great Danes
Dobermans (my dad has one and she is a big sweetheart)
King Charles Spanials
Cocker Spaniels
Golden Retreivers

If I ever live in the countryside I'll get a Weimaraner

Huskey or Malamute - both so pretty, smart and sweet dogs.
Great Danes, not sure if I would want to own something that big myself but the ones I have been around have been soooooo mellow and sweet . Of course one that was almost 190 pounds did try to sit on my lap once.......
Corgies - you can't look at them and not smile.

Oh, there's so many great breeds!

Chinese Shar Pei (the most loyal, devoted dogs I've ever owned, or known)
Bulldog (they will always keep you laughing!)
French Bulldog
Bernese Mtn Dog
American Bulldog
Gordon Setter
Giant Schnauzer

I am just longing to have a dog or two in my life again, but DH and I agreed we'd wait until we have a larger house with a fenced yard.

I have a Golden and two OES right now - a great combination.

I can't imagine not having one or more sighthounds in my life.
What are you doing with my list????

IMO Nothing as beautiful as a Saluki in action...any sight hound actually! My sister had a Saluki, but then she lives on just under 5 acres!

My sister has two, Oscar and Frankie (she wants to get a third "Beans")

My Fave breeds:
Great Danes ( I have had 4 during my 21 years alive. I am absolutely in love with this breed!)
Basset Hounds (they just make me giggle)
Afghan hounds (they are sooo pretty!)
Irish Setters
Black and Tan Coonhounds
Springer Spaniels

I think I have a thing for dogs with big ears!

I work at a doggy daycare so I deal with a lot of breeds and a lot of them I used to like but now that I have had to deal with them!

And yes I have a long list of faves!

i never had cats until i had moved out of my parents' house... we had dogs growing up, mostly collies & dogs that had been dumped [lived in the country]. but i've always been drawn to small dogs - probably because i'm actually more of a cat person, & they're closer in size to cats! before i moved out, i had 2 different 1/2 poodles [mutts - moms were poodles, daddies were 'traveling men' ]. my tastes in dogs hasn't changed, altho i'll probably never get one [too much work!] here's my list, in order:
1. Brussels Griffon
3. Papillon
4. Pomeranian
5. Poodle

Border Collie

I also like Malamutes, Brittanys, MUTTS....I just like dogs, if they have a good personality and they're cute I'm sure I like them!
