This is such a great topic for Fiance and I. He’s a dog lover, I’m an avid dog trainer, so we’ve discussed this in detail! It’ll be a few years before we can have a dog, and I will only adopt rescue dogs so we’ll probably end up getting a lot of big mutts or unexpected breeds, but we really enjoy speculating.

We will definitely own a Rottweiler at some point. They are my favorite breed, and because I’ll be the one in charge of selecting and training, I get the most say. 😉 Plus, you can always find plenty of rescue Rotties to choose from.


Fiance loves Malamutes and Samoyeds. I love them, too, but as they can be considerably more difficult to train, we probably will not get one of these breeds as our first dog.

And I have a not-so-secret obsession with these four breeds – Bernese Mountain Dogs, Great Danes, Dalmatians, and Pit Bulls. (The picture is a Staffordshire Bull Terrier, as “pit bull” is not an actual defined breed.) I’d be overjoyed to pick up any of these at a rescue center!

 But until we can get a dog… We are looking forward to rescuing a cat or two! 🙂 A house just isn’t a home without pets, as far as we’re concerned.
