  • My most beloved dog was a rescue Maltese. His name was Wuzzle (he picked his name, I swear!!!). We found him as a tiny pup twisting in circles at a busy intersection, brought him home and he instantly became part of the family. He was adorable, and smart. I don't have a favorite breed. I think if you have the opportunity to take an animal into your home, always consider rescue. Some people get sick of their animals and literally just throw them out. Can you imagine living in your home, being fed, loved and taken care of, and then the next day, you are thrown out to fend for yourself without any warning??

  • I have had many many mutts, and I love them. Right now I have a dachshund, a silky terrier, and two cavalier king charles spaniel. They are all rescues and I did not really go looking for any of them. All of my dogs seem to find me. I have to say my absolute fav has been my good ol hound mutts. My fav of current pups are the cavaliers, they are so sweet and cuddly and love everyone.

  • *shakes head at self* "what is you favorite?" That SHOULD say "YOUR"

  • Right now I have two Australian shepards. I prefer big dogs so that is what I always have. Breed is not so important to me, and they are all rescue animals because that is important to me.

  • I currently have a mini pug, she is adorable and so loving, also very smart. She is the best dog I've ever had. Pugs are great dogs, but they tend to have a lot of breathing problems due to their smushed in noses. Other than that I would definitely suggest getting a pug if you are looking for a loving,cuddly lap dog. I also have a Siberian husky, she is also very smart and is also a very loving dog, she was a inside dog until her size made it impossible to keep her in any long. Luckily we live in a place where she can run free. The only thing that I do not like about her is that she kills birds, rabbits, ground moles, squirrels and other small animals. I know it is only nature, but I love all the little animals.

  • We have 3 rescue dogs, 2 German Shepherds, and a Siberian Husky. Mutts are great dogs but so many people buy dogs and then don't want them anymore or can't afford to keep them, dump them or just give them to shelters, so we rescue them.

  • I love rottweilers, but I don't think they're a good dog for small children. Mine would get excited when you played with her and if she knocked into you, you could fall. I have been doing a lot of research and I've decided to check out a cockapoo(cockerspaniel/poodle). I don't want to deal with the shedding, poodles are smart, and cockerspaniels are great family dogs. I do not plan on getting one until my kids ask me a billion times.

  • Chows, LOVED her. Pitt LOVED her as well. Boston terrier PERFECT! But PLEASE do your research BEFORE dog comes home. Diet unforseen vet issues health issues. The "type" of dog HAS to fit the type of family. You dont want to bring one home just because I like the breed, or you like the colors of the dog. lololol

  • I've had an Old English Sheep Dog, Eskimo Spitz, sooner, German Shepard and an Australian Shepard. I loved every one of the dogs over the years. I really like my Aussie though. She has such a personality.
