I have a German Short Hair Pointer because they are large and have the most beautiful gentle nature.
I also have a whippet as I think they are cute

I sadly don't have a dog any more.
But! if I was to get one it would be this one....because they are huge, and I never do things in a small way....with pets .Bless the ''Great Dane''
Jona,
They are divine but sadly I cannot handle such a large dog anymore!

I would have to get a second job..... just to feed it!!

I don't own a dog, but if I did own one I would go for a dalmatian. They're lovely and so energetic. Otherwise a collie is beautiful. Also like labradors.
Gosh, so far -I am the only dog owner!

I have a rescued mixed breed which my vet spent 4 and a half months bringing back to health after shocking abuse put the breeders behind bars.She is the sweetest gentlest dog I have ever owned in all my entire life.She is aging terribly quickly though,due to the severe malnutrition as a new pup. I also have a shar pei who is joined to the other one at the hip.We did not realise until we had had her for nearly 2 months that she is 97% Deaf,hence the closeness to Georgie who is like a mother hen with her!! I have had shar pei's before and always found them loving and just wonderful in every way for a real dog lover.They do need a lot of loving work as babies,just like humans,really!! And since my new neighbours arrived a year or so ago,I have been adopted by THEIR rescued dog,who decided that the grass is definitely greener on MY side of the fence!! She was just lonely,and seeing 2 dogs to play with,she thought she would visit. She has been here ever since,though she does go visit her other family occasionally.She prefers the boys to come HERE!! Theeir mum pays what we call Doggy Maintenance by way of her vet bills,medication, registration,etc.After all,I did not choose her,She chose ME!!! TOO FUNNY,but I would not be the same without her here! We do not know what breeds are in here ancestral records,but she looks like a dingo/corgi/chihuahua!!!!
I have always owned at least 2 or 3 dogs.I lost my 15 year old Tibetan Spaniel ,2 years back,and still miss the cheeky little ratbag!!!
I have had up to five and once, for ten years, just one . . which was astonishing, but we took her to work and it would not have been possible to have more. I was such a mess after losing her it took me five years to get another. That was the longest time I was ever without a dog. I have two at present. If you don't mind getting the tissues out . . this is beautiful beyond words and shows why we love our dear fur babies. . . . :-))

I don't have a dog, but if I did, I would like either a miniature pug or a dachshund because they are small and can sit on your lap.
We used to have staffordshire bull terriers. I personally would want a British Bull Dog....but right now we are not allowed pets as we are renting.
I don't have a dog at the moment, but if we got one it would be a golden retriever because of their gentle nature and the ones I have known have been very good with kids.
Hi Sarah, we have 2 golden Retrievers and I can't recommend them enough as family dogs. they love human company (sometimes too much!) and are very easy to handle and train. They're very approachable and I'm constantly stopped when I take my two out for walks. They're beautiful dogs from puppies through to old age and can live up to 15 years + if you take care of them.

Thanks Steve, you've made me want to adopt one even more!

Labrabor - because of his beautiful temperament. He is great with the kids.
I have a Boxer x Staffy, because she was the saddest looking dog in the pound. She's fantastic, playful, energetic, and learns quickly.

I always take the saddest one too :-) Gosh, I have had some fantastic dogs . . . how people can throw them away and/or abuse them is beyond me. Kudos to you for adopting! (ᵔᴥᵔ)

thanks yello-what an odd family -i have glaucoma, young dog going blind, old dog has something wrong with stomach........
by Finy
My pug, she is gentle lovely warm and grateful, the perfect dog
I have a male Papillon dog. He is called Max and is quite small weighing just 3 kgs he may be small but he has a big charecter and is just full of love for myself and my husband. He was " rescued" from a breeder who was taken ill and needed all the animals rehomed I am very grateful to our son who brought this wee dog into our lives as he has filled the " empty nest syndrome" we have felt since our son left home. Thank you son (and Max) lol.....
yes, they sure can fill a "void"!
by Finy
I have a rescued Papillon also. The sweetest little dog I have ever had, so loving.

One of the guys from my ex-work had a x-collie/kelpie and wasn't interested in her any more because of his lifestyle, he was young and always going out and couldn't put the time in to walk her. I was looking for a pet and when this offer came up I took it. Jessie was a large dog with a huge coat of hair, she was 7 yo and looked like a rough collie with kelpie markings on her face. She loved kids and snapped at water and loved going for walks which were frustratingly slow as she stopped and sniffed everything. She was a lovely dog and we were so upset when we had to have her put down. She was 13yo. I feel that she is still with us.
that is the horrible part of owning a pet.
I was once told while on a farm, "livestock, dead stock" -unfortunately the two go hand in hand eventually and it is heartbreaking.

I have a 5 year old Australian Bulldog who even after going to puppy school then having one on one lessons by a personal trainer still hasn't learnt all that much so he isn't the brightest dog I have had however he more then makes up for it with his kind heart and loving nature. Despite his breed he is extremely energetic, plays like a puppy and thinks he is small enough to sit on peoples laps. He is my beautiful baby boy who I would not trade for the world.
i also have one who thinks he is a lap dog and tiny! sometimes hurts when he jumps up!

I have a Rhodesian Ridgeback. This is our second one and we did go back to the same breeder. They are a large dog but are very laid back, gentle and loving nature. A very beautiful natured dog :)
We have A Shi-Atsu / Bichon Frise cross.
Like all Shi Atsu crossed dogs he is smart and affectionate, with The Bichon Frise in him he is slightly bigger than the usual Maltese that are crossed with the Shi atsu's, it also gives him a small snout rather than a flat face.
And less breathing related problems.
We love him dearly and named him Oliver

Two. They are that awful word . . bitzers. They look almost identical and yet have no breeds in common as we had them DNA tested. They were both rescues, different ages and hundreds of miles apart. We adore them, we spoil them and they are just wonderful companions. Our kids.

Finy, what a gorgeous pic! I have one nearly the same of my two spooning but they are facing the opposite way to yours. LOL

Sadly I haven't replaced my beagle who had to be put to sleep as at 15 human years she could no longer even get up on her legs to walk. She would drag herself out of her kennel and slide down the side passage on her stomach. It was heartbreaking and I had to get hubby and daughter together with grandchildren to take her to the vet. They cried all the way there and back. We miss her hi-fiving the kids in the street and the other intelligent things she could do.
I have 2 maltese x poodles, they don't shed hair which is better for asthmatics and hayfever sufferers,and they weren't as expensive as a full breed, and our last one being a full bred she had a lot of health problems.
