Does shelter dog count as a breed? Cause they are my favorite. We have had, a shih tzu/something, two shepard/pit/lab/whatevers (biggest cuddle bug ever is the one who looks like a whole lotta pit) my spazzy little terrier mutt and most recently my parents new german shorthair/blue heeler/whatever girl who is smart as a tack, all mostly just mutts from the shelte. Also our labradoodle that was an uh oh littler from a friend of a friend. Ater getting him specificaly for breed traits he totally doesnt have (low shed? If low means a small terrier worth every week! and swimming/fetch? Good luck!) i would never intentionally buy a breed from a breeder because I have seen how much of a toss up it can still be.

Weimaraner! Our weim is the happiest, go lucky dog on the planet. He’s a big lovey cuddle bug and so loyal. He’s goofy, fun, energetic, and just a joy.

I have a Shiba Inu mix and she is an amazing dog. She learned very fast and has always been really good.
My favorite has to be Pit Bull though, I have never known a more loyal dog than my boy, Max.

English Setter. By FAR!
As my husband puts it, he’s “usefull” (he uses him to hunt), but he’s also a big, cuddly, affectionate pile of love. He’s so cuddly, his fur is SO soft (a lot of people comment on that) and he is amazing with our 20 month old daughter.
Rufus was a handful for the first two years.. they have a bit of an extended puppy stage, and training is essential.
While English Setters are usually clam inside, the NEED to be able to run around outside, off leash to burn off steam.
I will have an ES for the rest of my life now. They’re great dogs.

My favorite breed is the Irish Terrier – although I love all dogs!

I have always loved Huskies. I had a full one when I was 15 and me and that dog were inseparable. Sadly after I’d had him about a year he was dog-napped and we never found him (We lived in the country and there were people arrested for dog-napping and selling the dogs to research places or some such).
Now I have a husky/coyote mix (She’s 19months old, 40lbs and tan when her mother was a silver/white husky. Our vet has been dying to do a DNA test to see if she really is a coyote mix) who is both the most amazing and stubborn dog ever.
DH loves German shepherds and when we finally move out into a house with a yard we plan to go through a GSD rescue organization and adopt/help rehabilitate some.
We’re both “big dog” people.

WESTIE!! I may be a little biased though 😉 I know everyone says they have the best dog ever, but I’m pretty sure she actually IS the best dog ever!
We also have an Australian Cattle Dog puppy… they’re supposed to be really smart and great dogs.. can’t wait to get out of the puppy stage! Haha!

@MichiganGirl24: We love boxers too, and that is largely due to us having one. We also like pit bulls, but they are banned in Ontario. I grew up with labs, so I will always have a fondness for them too because they are such great family dogs and so good with kids.
Please feel free to include puppy pictures 😀 lol.

Ah! Dog napping is my biggest fear. I have heard of folks breeding shepherds with wolves, but never coyotes! I am not a fan of mixing species like that because it is hard to honour both when raising the animal. A lot of behavioural issues can arise.
