Default What are your favorite and least favorite breeds?

Just wondering what breeds you guys really like out there. I'm a dog
lover and it's rare that I meet any dogs that I seriously dislike.

My favorites are, in no particular ranking.
German Shephards - A well bred GSD is regal and a powerful working
dog. There's just something about german shephards that project power
and dignity all at the same time.
Labradors - I haven't met a lab yet that wasn't a totally affectionate
tongue machine.
Doberman pinscher - Dobermans are the F-16's of the doggy world. They
are sleak and always ready for action. I like the temperment in a well
bred/obedient doberman as well.
Mini pinscher - I would have never have known about this breed if I
didn't adopt one by chance myself. These guys are little clowns that
get into trouble a lot. Anyone that owns one must have a sense of
humor.
English Mastiff - something adorable about a 200lb lap dog.
greyhounds - They run real fast

Dogs I dislike..
Depends on the individual dog but i've had bad experiences with chow
chows and chihuahuas. I tend to avoid both breeds but i've seen some
gems.

I've never met a dog I didn't like for one reason or another. I know that
when I was a kid I used to get chased and bit in the ankles by a couple of
Poms but I've also met nice Poms... Our old neighbors used to have a Rottie
that used to terrorize our dog, but in general I love Rotts.

I think the thing that makes me love certain dogs (like my dachshund, Rusty)
is if they have spunk. Rusty is a little 14 pound dog with tiny little
legs, but when he sees a greyhound at the dog park, he will chase it like he
could keep up any day! That's what I love about my pup (among other
things - he's just an awesome dog!!!).

There are a lot of breeds that I couldn't live with, not because I don't
like them, but because they wouldn't suit me.


Breeds I like:

Gsds.
Rotts.
Dobies
Boxers (see they have made they list
(Bf wants Newfies and Saints)

Breed - doesn't really enter into it, though I admit I am
wary of pit-bullish and amstaff-ish looking dogs. Hanging
around this newsgroup and getting to "know" a few PBs
vicariously has been useful.


I have to agree with this, i'm naturally and maybe stereotypically
suspicious of pit bills I meet. Mainly because the people that often
have these dogs are "tough guy" types who don't have a clue. These
pits end up being ill socialized and unpredictable but i've also met
the gentle pit raised by a caring owner. I guess it varies quite a
lot.

Another "breed" I like seeing but would NEVER own one is a
wolf-hybrid. These dogs are so unpredictable but if socialized/bred
right they combine the looks and intelligence of a wolf with the
better qualities of a dog. Ethically speaking, the world probably
needs less of them because they are so unpredictable and people have
them for the wrong reasons.

My favorite breeds:
Pug - Sawyer was DH and my first pet together almost 9 years ago.
Rottweiler - Intelligent and intuitive breed (Maxy)
Pitbull - I would have never though I would fall so hard for this breed
because terriers are the one group of dogs as a whole I couldn't own. The
breed characteristics of the Pitbull when properly directed and socialized
make it a truly remarkable dog.

Breeds at the lower end of my favorite list:
Almost All Terrier Breeds - WAY TOO MUCH ENERGY!!! They are like little
sugar rushes. I love to exercise my dogs but I need at least one hour of
sleep a night.
All Other Pugs - I have come to realize that my pug (Sawyer) isn't a pug,
he's a very short human. All other pugs I've met (there are 6 in my family)
I couldn't live with and neither could he.
