I had two Rottweilers, but had to put em to sleep. I'll probably get some in the near future: I love Rotties!! They've got great personalities, and take pride in protecting their owners. I've had cocker spaniels and Labs but I like Rottweilers the best. I know some guys with Pitbulls, but to me they are ugly, and way to vicious to be safe. What breed do you guys have?

poodle mutt from the pound. She's only 8.5lbs. The wife and I live in a one bedroom apartment so a big dog is out of the question.

I've got a spotted Lab.

LOL, good point QuietShootr.... I meant no harm to my pitbull-owning collegues on the site. Just an opinion.... I just don't like pitbulls, nor do I like those yap-yap Alligator food breeds, nor do I like cats.

Currently none, but in the past I started off with a rescued mutt, a golden lab, and a terrapoo in that order. All had great dogonalities.

I have a Brittany. She is a great family dog. About 40 pounds. Big enough to sound big, but small enough not to get out of hand. She is a great bird dog, and she will run squirrels too. She keeps the Canadian Geese out of the yard, too.

I have a pure-bred lab. Oh bot is he a pin in the ass. I can't shoes on the ground becuase they will end up without laces or the pads will get ripped out of the bottom. He has a great personality.

I have an English/Pitt mix. I used to have a full pitt as well, but I had to give her away when I moved into a townhouse. Once I have a house and some land again, I will own pitts. Although I also like the Rhodesian Ridgeback.

I've got a 1/2 Rott, 1/2 Australian Sheppard. She is a great dog. Mean enough to keep the bad kids out, nice enough that all the good guys play catch with her all day long. Also a Mastiff, Great Dane mix. She is cool too but pretty much a big assed porch dog.

Keep in mind that many insurance companies will not write policies for you if you have certain breeds (even mixed) - like Rotts, Akitas, Chows, German Shepherds, Dobermans, etc.

Two blue eyed Siberian Huskies. I used to have three but My male ran off 0r one of the farmers near by got tired of blue eyed pups every six months. Huskies are the coolest dogs. They dont bark or stink. The worst thing about them is when they shed.

I had a smallish 35 pound Brittany (had to put her down a couple years ago) and she was just about the perfect dog. Never harmed anyone but nobody could sneak up on you either. I use to keep her leash and my hiking gear in this closet and anytime I put my hand on the knob to that closet she would absolutely come unglued with excitement -- actually trembling with excitement. I'd hike with her in the mountains and I would have to stop for a break about every 1.5 hours or so and she would come back to me wimpering as if to say "come on -- lets go -- why ya stopping -- lets go -- come on". I miss her! Later,

Molly is 11 now, and you would never guess she is that old. If you want to get her wound up, just ask her... 'Hey Molly, do you want to go get the honkers?' She will run to the door. I see her getting old and it makes me sad. There was a thread here the other day about putting down dogs when they get old... I do not look forward to the day I have to part with my Molly.

Jack is 5 years old and weighs 35 pounds. I have had many dogs, but my Brittany is by far the best dog that I have ever owned. He loves to bird hunt and is great with the kids. I know what you guys mean about getting excited. If that dog sees his leash or a shotgun (even when I am cleaning them), he goes apeshit! He loves to be outside with me.

My first dog was a blue-eyed husky. I loved that dog but she always escaped and one day never came home.[>(] Now I have the best dog ever. She is an American Eskimo. Beautiful, extremely loyal, obedient, not too big and not too small. Strangers don't understand how great she is because she only warms up to people she knows. She was almost killed by a Rottenwieller yesterday, but lucky for her she's quick and smart. edited to add: I don't hate Rots, but it seems like some Rot owners get a kick out of making there dogs agressive.

We have 3 cockers and 1 springer. Wouldn't trade any of them. The springer is 12 and slowing down, losing his eye sight. One of the cockers whose my rescue and has seizures she's 9, buff cocker she's 8 and the black and tan cocker is 1. She's a handful. They all let us know when some one is around. The springer lets me know when the bear is around. Got to love em.

100 pound German rott. His name's "Kitty Kitty." OK, that's not his name, but it should be.

Shiloh Shepherd - just turned a year old and weighs 120 pounds. They are what you might call a "perfect" German Shepherd, bred for soft family temperament (but still quite protective), to eliminate the hip problems, high intelligence, and to be minimum 120 pounds for males, 100 pounds for females. see [url]http://www.shilohshepherds.org[/url]
