The first dog we had was a GSD and a mixed breed. When I was 6 or 7 they were stolen. The next dogs we had were two golden retrievers (I loved them) and an old English sheep dog. I really did not care for that dog. These were my parents dogs. After I moved away they had a yellow lab another old english sheep dog (still didn't like it), 4 scottie dogs, a shepherd pit mix and a dachshund. I didn't live with them, but I was around them often.

My personal dogs were a Siberian husky. That is not an apartment dog or it didn't get enough attention, but it tore everything up. We found it a good home. We have a house now and have two mixed breed (shepherd, chow, poodle) and the GSD. We also had Riley. He was a GSD with health issues. Unfortunately vet care, specialists and love were not enough to save him. . I still miss him so much every day.

I forgot, the parents also had a golden retriever pit mix. He was huge and very protective. They also had several pits used for wild bore hunting. A couple of them were ok, but most of them would fight at the drop of a hat. I don't care for pits.
