    I have a 10 year old male pit bull terrier. We adopted him when he was 1 year old. He loves everybody, very kind, gentle and smart dog. I have two kids and their friends were over all the time through the years.He loves everybody. Sometimes I think how much one should  abuse this dog to make him agressive.

    All dogs are great.  But the best is a rescued shelter mutt!

    One of my best friends has a Great Dane.  He is the best dog- he owned me from the day that I sat down on her couch and Brucie (the dog) backed his butt up towards me, folded one hind leg under himself and sat himself square in my lap.  I am getting one as soon as I am able to!

    [QUOTE]I've been meaning to ask bigpuppy.  Does Bosco have blue eyes or is that the camera?  I have to say I just chuckle out loud everytime I see his face!
    Posted by ambergirl[/QUOTE]

    I was curious about Bosco too.  But maybe blue eyes are common in chocolate labs????   I've never seen it in person but just stumbled on a picture of this cutie at the Northeast Animal Shelter:  http://www.northeastanimalshelter.org/adopt/dog_detail.php?id=5579

    She's quite the little Bosco look-a-like.

    We had a pure bred mutt growing up.  Both his parents were mutts.  We had his mama.  He was a little guy about 20 pounds.  Best Dog Ever.  Smart, liked to play, never sulked, never ever snapped or growled at anyone.  Used to tell him to go find his ball and he'd go off looking for it - 10 15 minutes later he'd come running in the living room with his ball, ready to play.  He was the best dog.

    Whenever my step dad was working on the car and out a tool down, he would pick it up and carry it back to the garage.

    Just a great little dog.

    pg1960:

    Pugs are known to be "big dogs in small bodies".  They have big personalities - my family is overflowing with pugs - my sister, sister-in-law, daughter and niece all have pugs, some of us have two.

    I would think it is not easy to get rescue pugs as they are expensive dogs.  One of ours is adopted because his "mother" was moving to a condo where she could not have a dog. It was by chance that we heard about him - and she was very careful, she came to our house and met us and checked everything out, as a good owner should.

    My youngest child will leave for college in the fall and I am so thankful to have my babies, I think we will have pugs as long as we are able to care for them.  but my oldest is 13, and although he is doing well, I know he won't last forever.

    My next door neighbor has a border collie and he is a beautiful, nice dog. 

    Not sure who said it, but "there are no bad dogs, only bad dog owners".  And, of course, All Dogs Go to Heaven!

    We have a Portuguese Water Dog, but unlike Obama's, Bo, and Ted's late dog, Splash, she is a Libertarian.

    German Shepherds - not because of the NAME - but the actual breed.  I loved my 2 German Shepherds - they were beautiful, tough, and loving dogs.....no dogs could ever replace them.  They are both in Heaven now.

    I love pugs too! Never had one - but they are soooo loving and cute.  If I ever get any dogs again - perhaps it would be a Pug.
    Cats are much easier to have as pets, though.

    Re: Your favorite dog breed?

    Mixed breeds are best. Many purebred dogs suffer from various defects from inbreeding or because they've been selectively bred over the years into something unnatural -- a prime example is bulldogs.

    If you want a dog as a pet as opposed to a status symbol, get a mutt.

    My parents used to have Irish Wolfhounds. They both hoped that IW's would never become very popular, because that always causes the breed's temperment to go downhill.

    We didn't get a lab to be a status symbol!

    [QUOTE]I spent many thoughtful years learning about many breeds.  I was fortunate to be able to experience many first hand.  My choice is a Shetland Sheepdog.  I went to a very good breeder and got the dog that best fits me and my husband.  She is a perfect therapy dog for my Rheumatoid arthritis.

    "Allergen free non-shedding" is terminology that was invented as a sales tool to push the sale of particular breeds. If you experience no allergic reaction to your dog that's wonderful. Everytime I hear those terms used it makes me crazy. All animals shed their hair. It cannot be prevented because it's a natural occurrence. When a breeder tells you that this breed is non-shedding it simply is not true.

    Re: Your favorite dog breed?

    Bosco's eyes are actually gold. That photo was taken in dim light and his pupils were large, so with the flash his eyes look blue. When he was a puppy he was afraid of the basement stairs so he would stand at the top with great curiosity as I would 'rise up' from below. He would have the funniest look on his face so I finally took a photo of it. Even though he's now an 85-lb. moose, he still has that puppy curiosity about everything!

    Bride - it's funny, but I saw those lab mixes on the NEAS website the other day and how cute are they? I'm having such indecision about getting Bosco a playmate. He can still be such a handful that I think I'm going to have to wait a little while longer.


    I think we finally have a consensus with this thread - ALL dogs are the best dogs!

    Re: Your favorite dog breed?

    I've had a German Shepherd/Collie Mix, Pure Bred German Shepherd and Australian/German Shepherd Mix. Also has an English Fox Hound for about three months who ran off after we got her nice and healthy (rescue from Kentucky).

    I love mixed and pure breeds. The three that I did have all came with baggage from dysfunctional homes. With a lot of love, patience all three blossomed into amazing buddies.

    Last year I was very sick and couldn't take care of Sam, the Australian/Shepherd mix. My sister took him in and he is doing great. I at least know he is in a loving home. He is 12.Cool
