Spinoff-What type of dog would you LOVE to own (besides GSD)

I am an animal lover (not a fan of pet birds though), I would love to own a Cane Corso Mastiff. I am in love with them, but they are so HUGE! I would love to have a Rottie and a Doberman as well!!

I will probably only ever have GSD's since that is what I have always had.

But lately I have been admiring the ACDs/heeler type dogs.

They are often nasty pieces of work - sneaky, snappy and aggressive - at least the working ones here - I'd NEVER have one as a pet even if it was the last dog on earth.
Having said that one of my work mates has a little bitch, she's sweet as but has been raised in a shop so really used to people (she's terrible with other dogs tho)

I'd love to own an Irish Wolfhound

A dry mouthed English Mastiff?

I'm counting down, 3 more years at least before I can get my Rottweiler (unless a miracle happens and I find a landlord that will rent to me with one before then).

There are lots... Right now I'm interested in Beaucerons and Hovawarts but I'm not sure a Hovawart is really a good match for me. I also like Swissies but same thing, and Leonbergers.
I love big dogs, but I also like some terrier breeds like Border Terriers.

I love them too and have always had them. My last dog was a border collie x red cattle dog (red heeler) and one of my current dogs is a GSD x kelpie.

I love the cattle dogs...some of the most intelligent dogs around. Incredibly loyal and a beautiful personality...so trust worthy.

I live in sydney (city), Australia so obviously no cattle to herd around here but lots and lots of walking and exercise. Especially with kelpies...they can go from sun up to sun down and never drop.

Hmm...

I'd really like to own a neapolitan mastiff, a big wrinkly, drooly dog lol. Also a bloodhound, which me and my boyfriend have already agreed will be our next dog.

I would really like a Border Terrier but the main thing stopping me is this "has to be on a leash" thing. I enjoy our offlead walks in the woods immensly.
