I’m definitely an animal person and I LOVE dogs so it’s always hard to narrow it down! 

I currently own a Pit mix (we know she’s half pitbull but we don’t know what she’s mixed with. And there’s actually about 7-9 breeds categorized as Pitbulls but we don’t know what specifically she is). I love how loving and loyal pitties are. They have such a bad rap and it’s so sad. My beagle growing up was more vicious than my pitbull lol. So probably Pitbulls would be my top breed. 

My second would probably be beagles. I grew up with one and she was one of the smartest dogs I’ve ever met. Like a PP said they are food motivated so they’ll do anything for a treat. Our beagle was sassy and had so much personality. 

Im not a huge small dog person but I do think Pugs, Corgis and Shiba Inus are cute. 

I love big dogs and I would love to one day own a Rottweiler or German Shepard. But when it comes to larger breeds there aren’t many dogs I’m not completely obsessed with.

 

Here is my current pit mix:

Shelties!  I absolutely love them.  They are so freakin beautiful and sweet.  Here’s a pic of my beloved Mochi.  Just one look into his eyes and I’m like melted butter.

Greyhounds!! My grey is the most beautiful, loving, sweetest dog I’ve ever met!! She is loved by everyone who meets her. She is so well behaved, she is better behaved than my other half haha! She has a daft little run around and then walks alongside us and when in the house she just sleeps in which ever room we are in 😍 

she’s literally a dream boat!!

Miniature Schnauzers, particularly ones that think they are a human baby.

We have two Aussie mixes – one is mixed with a collie, and given he is a tripod, is really super calm. The other is mixed with a spaniel and has the sweetest heart. I couldn’t believe how sweet she was. Generally, we like aussies because they are wicked smart, but the spaniel mix is just SO sweet. She’s great with all people, with kids, and with other dogs.

coffeeeee :  Rottweilers. They’re intelligent, gentle giants, protective, loving, and beautiful. I’ve had three throughout my lifetime, including my current rescued angel who reminds me a lot of my childhood rottie. I’m glad that their reputation has improved in recent years, but there are still lots of stigmas around them and I love that our fur baby defies the stereotypes that some people believe to be true of the breed. 

Here’s our little girl:

This was my second rottie, my puppy brother. We lost him in 2018 to bone cancer, which is unfortunately common for the breed. He is pictured here with my husband.

While I’m a lover of most dogs, Great Danes have my heart.  I first became interested in the breed years ago, simply because of the book, The Guardian, by Nicholas Sparks.    Years later, Darling Husband and I adopted a dane mix from a local shelter.  Freakin LOVE her, but she has NO dane personality.  She has our heart though (just had her 8 year gotcha day).  

Two years ago, we adopted our first full dane and it was instant love.  All the dane qualities we were interested in:  affectionate, follow you everywhere, playful, lounge dogs, etc were very prevalent and he was a dream.  Sadly and tragically, he passed away at 18 months.  It nearly destroyed us.

This past August we adopted our first rescue Great Dane from a rescue I had been following for the last 8 years.  She is so precious and MASSIVE.  Holy cow she’s huge.  We love her and her typical dane personality.  She is insanely mellow and so loving.

With all that said, owning a dane is SO hard and I do not recommend it for the faint of heart.  I have had dogs my whole life and Danes, by far are the most work and anxiety inducing.

Just for the looks, I really like chow-chow but I don’t know how they are behavior-wise.

Shih Tzus!!! I have 2 and they are the sweetest, easiest, most loving companions ever. The only thing high maintenance about these dogs is their coats, which must be maintained – usually in a “puppy cut.” But they do not shed. Unlike other small breeds, Shih Tzus are not yappers. They can be stubborn and hard to train (they are not the rocket scientists of the canine world – but with patience and repetition, they can be taught tricks and whatnot. They make very good apartment dogs because they need little exercise (not to say that they don’t love to go to the park or for a walk) like a large breed – they are perfectly content to snuggle up on the couch with you and binge watch Netflix. 🙂  Honestly though, I am a huge dog person, so I love all breeds, even pitties.
