I had a black and tan Doberman Pinscher when I was growing up and then later in life, I had a Cocker Spaniel – Black Labrador mix and both were excellent pets. My ultimate choice would probably be a purebred German Shepherd but I cannot afford one of those and it wouldn’t get along very well with my 5 cats.

I also have a Doberman Pinscher, and I would say they are one of my favorite dog breeds. They are very intelligent, loyal and loving.

Oh Cage, thank you for sharing those pictures.
My favorite dog is a boxer. I have had 3 of them. They were sweet, loving and hardly ever bark.

@chyna boxers are gorgeous. We’re a dog loving family. Not the kind that lets them sleep with us, eat at the dinner table and generally go where they want, we just have a massive love of the species as a whole.

labs and jacks

@steve6 bit common though?

All of you are so, so misguided. The best dog is an Akita-shepherd mix. No question.
Whoa, can’t believe you aren’t aware of this. Perhaps you have been co-opted by the powerful Boxer/Lab/Jack Lobby. THIS is why we need restraints on lobbyists…...

cage's avatar

@susanc I also enjoy Akitas. shame they’re not that great with kids :(

Half pit bull, half poodle.
They aren’t much of a guard dog, but they’re vicious gossips.

The Chinese Shar Pei is my favorite dog- for too many reasons to list.

KingMalefic's avatar

Malamutes, Wolve hybrids. (—My Pyrenees Zeus—) Maltese, cause they are puntable. :-p Asmonet.

All of my dogs are my favorites. However, if I had to pick one it would be our Shar-Pei (see my avatar for her picture), mostly for personality reasons such as her wicked sense of humor.

OTOH, our Pit Bull is great and so is our American Bulldog (she’s a bit slobbery), and all three of our mutts are terrific.

Staffordshire Bull Terrier,all dogs rolled into one.

Jack Russells for sure… but only a traditional JRTCA Jack. It has to have the “classic” head (not the long nose) and have longer legs (not squat). JRT’s are the smartest dogs and they have the biggest hearts. I also love my Wheaten and my Papillon dearly, they are both GREAT dogs, but if I could only own one type of dog for the rest of my life it would be a JRT.

I once crossed a Pit bull with a SHITZU, ended up with a Bullshit.

ravynn's avatar

Siberian Husky, they are a bit of work, but worth it. Intelligent, friendly, chatty (husky talk) and beautiful singers. They love live and show it :-)

I have a Australian cattle dog/sheltie mix. He is really cute. I had him since he was born on my farm. He had 7 siblings and 3 half siblings. Some of hi sobs were short haired others were long haired. My profile picture is of him. His name is puddles. My favorite actual breed is border collie.
