We have a little terrier mutt, we think cairn and some others, he is a sweetie but ALL terrier personaility. DH wants a giant too, but I am less inclinded that way. I don’t do drool and those dogs have giant drooly jowls. I do want a lab or retriver mix someday when we have a yard, big enough to satisfy DH but not so big it out weighs me.

I am going through dog-itis right now.  I left my 15yr old chihuahua with mom when I moved with FI.  I want a new dog so bad.  We are definitely small dog people.  I want another chihuahua.  He wants a dachsund.

We have a siberian husky, she is amazing – insanely friendly and playful and very smart. Since we live in an apartment, we take her running and to the park everyday to make sure she gets enough exercise. 

ETA: We definitely want more huskies, once we have a house with a yard we will get her some siblings!

We have a German Shepherd/lab mix.  She’s a 90lb beast, but totally runs away from tiny lap dogs.  It’s hilarious.

@houstonwhodat:  Those large breeds, especially a great dane, don’t  need a backyard at all! They’re actually great apartment dogs. Just a thought 🙂

I’ve always wanted either a rottwiler, german shepherd, or a doberman. I let my FI pick out of the 3, and he chose rottie. We got her four months ago! I already want another.

@chasesgirl:  I grew up with a Cairn! I love terrier personality 🙂

We have a golden/lab/french bulldog mix. He looks mostly like a lab (maybe some visla) with a golden’s tail. He’s big and he thinks hes a lapdog.

DH’s brother’s ex moved to an apartment and is looking for a home for her beagle mix (orginally DH’s brother found it as a stray and they nursed it back to health – when they seperated, she kept him) I’m trying to convince DH that we could take him. (He’s mostly convinced – just need to work out logistics!!!) 

I love mutts! I would love to have a scrappy terrier mutt or border collie mutt.

If DH would let me, I would be a crazy dog person with 50 dogs.  

@houstonwhodat:  I would love a giant dog too! But I bet they are messy!

We both always wanted a lab, so we got a lab!

Our first ” child” was a German Shepherd 🙂

Love him, his attitude, his intelligence, his obedience and his personality!

I would also love to get a ” big” dog next. Not that our Shepherd isn’t big but I mean like 100 lbs plus 🙂

Have a female German Shepherd! I love her so much! Best dog ever. We got her when we started dating 4 years ago.

We have a Brittany Spaniel and will be adding a German Shephard to the family in the next few years. I love having a dog again, though the cats have still not made peace with the new addition.

@Crabbabs:  He is great, just slightly more crazy than I was used to, growing up we ahd the most chill Shih Tzu ever then had (well, my parents now have) two shepard/lab/pit mixes that are the laziest snuggle bugs ever so this little fuzz ball of energy is super different. We think cairn for size and coat and he has floppy ears like a border terrier. He is a sweetie but I’m not sure I would get another terrier as a puppy again, he mellowed out a lot since we got him but he has some seriously terrible twos.
