What's your fave breed of dog and why?

Mutts don't count, though I know they are very loving. Give me a specific breed and the reason why. I have too many to count. I tend to like larger breeds that are gentle and wise like collies, eskimo spitz and golden retrievers and I like a lot of mid-size dogs like beagles and cocker spaniels. The little dogs tend to be irritating for the most part but there are some exceptions.

  • I've always wanted a cocker spaniel because they are so cute! But I also love golden retrievers because I had one as a kid and she was the best dog I've ever had.

  • I like golden retrievers. They're just very good and loyal dogs IMO. I also REALLY love pyrenees. I had two at one point and they were the best dogs.

  • I love my Boxers. Before knowing anything much about the breed (one was just dropped off at my back door) She is now my best friend, comforter and greatest joy! We have two and this breed is amazing! They are truly great around kids (especially babies) and I can take food right from their mouths without so much as a blink of an eye!~

    They are now being used as guide dogs as well - and I can see the potential! They are amazing!

  • My favorite breeds are: Great Pyrenees. They are SO gorgeous. I owned a male, raised him since he was 5 weeks old and the size of my foot, and he was just a great big lovable teddy bear. He was so mellow and loving, trained easily, very faithful. He passed away in June. I'll probably get another, some day.
    Newfoundland - they're just like the great pyrenees except they love to SWIM.
    For small dogs, the Coton du Toulier (sp?)....supposedly they are not as hyper and yappy as most small dogs, and they are just so stinkin cute. Like a great pyrenees immortalized as a puppy, almost.

    Right now we have a Shiba Inu - far from my favorite breed, as a whole....the breed has tendencies to be aggressive if not cared for properly, can tend to bark a lot, and they're runners. Easily distractable and will just run off to investigate things. Ours, though, NEVER barks, and is very sweet, mellow, and well behaved.

  • @ Razelda: As I kid we had a pyrenees and he was very agressive. He attacked my dad pretty bad once and we ended up having to put him down.
