I personally own Boxers. My mom had one when she was little, I had one growing up, and now I have three, so my kids can grow up with them. They are awesome family dogs, my kids are pretty rough with them, but they never seem to care. They are the best guard dogs you could ever ask for too, someone even gets close to my yard and they start woofing, any closer deserves an all out bark-a-thon between the three of them. My mom told me that when she was little her sister used to sleepwalk, one morning she got out of the house, and all the way to the road (2 yrs old). They found her next to the road, their boxer had a hold of her diaper and wouldn’t let her out of the yard. She probably saved her life.

Anyway, this thread is useless without pics, so here are my pups. We bred the daddy to a white boxer and got two of the puppies. They are 7 months old now.

I have a Black Lab, he's great with the kids and brings back just about anything I send him after. I just wish he didn't fart so much.

WTF are you talking about you worthless piece of crap.

I can see this thread turning into a complete pissing match. 15-20 pages at least.

I have owned Labrador Retrievers for the past 20 years because THEY are the best dogs on the planet.

I've had my nieces pulling on her tail. Jumping on her like she was a horse and she just turns arounds and looks at them like -- WTF?

There are good and bad aspects of all breeds but I've found that, overall, the Lab is the best breed.

ETA: SPECTRE that is a beautiful pup you got there.

Good boxers are probably the best dogs in the world. I've owned several in my life time. But, at the present I own one boston terrior and three chijuajas (sp). Why? Because I love them and they are great friends and companions.

I have an akita. I got her because she looked like an ewok when she was a puppy and I couldn't resist. She is the perfect dog, except she sheds hundreds of pounds of fur every month.

English Springer. Crazy, active, fun-loving, loyal, protective, smart, trainable, and friendly. Too big to step on and small enough to pick up. Not intimidating to anyone 99% of the time, but raise a hand against someone he cares about and you WILL be wearing a 53 pound chainsaw. Believe that. Mine almost ate the arm off an idiot that tried to snatch our cleaning lady's purse. 'Twas a bad day for purse snatching. The only down side is the shedding and, to be honest, some people think a certain intimidation factor is good. I'm not one of them (for dogs, at least) but, to each his own. And they are pure-breds ... if you "work/play" 'em every day, they're OK. If you don't, you'd be amazed at some of the "projects" they can give themselves. Anyway...Is this a great country or what? You get to choose.
Stay safe

Best feeling in the world picking out the GSD pup!!

I vote GSD as well...ours damn near speaks english. Give him any command in any format and he understands perfectly. Keeps the kids in the yard, knows his boundaries, and doesn't beg for food.I've had labs (love em), goldens (nice...but generally breathing furniture) and the GSD wins hands down.

Plus...ain't nobody comin into the house without permission...especially when the trademark wolf ears pop up and you see that imposing shadow in the window accompanied by the glass rattling bark.

Nice Boxers, Dickhead. Our female Boxer is 8 and starting to get a little gimpy. Still likes her playtime with her 2 Newfies, though. They really are great dogs.

Perfect German Shepherd times two. Good with kids, hugely intelligent, good health, large size, great protector.

Here is mine at about 8 months and about 100 pounds. He is currently 160 pounds and three years old.

Cause he was the coolest dog in the pet store, plus we got him when i was still pretty little.

Okay, I do NOT have a dog. BUT! IF I did, it would MOST definitely be a Jindo. Why? Well, they are SUPER smart and about the right size (not too "yippie" little, not HUGE) But I'm impressed with smart and loyal, and all I've seen from these dogs says just that.

Puppy version

Adult Version.

Also, I do NOT like barking just for the sake of barking - these dogs seem to NOT do that.

See avatar.

Black labs are wonderful companions. Very smart, very loyal and great with the family. Best pet I ever had.

I had a dalmations before him, and 2 collie/malamute mixes. All were good dogs, but comparitively were pains in the ass. Dalmations are stubborn as hell, and alot of health problems. The collie/mute mixes were better but hard to train and still more "wolf" than "dog". Killed everything, rolled in shit, you get the idea.

My brothers English Springer, his name is Pike. The other little bastard is my Pal Jug when he was about 8 weeks old. He's a Brittany Spanial

I don't think there is a better pointer or upland bird dog than the GSP (English Pointers are right up there) but I have to disagree on the description "Most Versitile" and give that crown to the Brittany Spanial. Pointing, retrieving any bird it can carry including ducks, and Rabbits. They also make better house pals and (Now this is a matter of personal preference) They range closer, which works out well for my tired legs.

Another picture of Jug when he was about 8 months.

He still thinks he's a lap dog and he'll sleep like this any chance he gets.
