Anything smaller than a heeler.

Except maybe a mini-australian shepherd... but I'd trade it in for a fullsize any day.

Probably anything other than belgian malinois and working line german shepherds from reputable kennels.

Edit: Well maybe too strong a statement. Ive seen some shelties that were cute and drivey I wouldnt mind keeping around.

I'd probably "own" any dog as they are all of interest to me...but if I could opt not to own one based on pure aesthetics...I'm thinking I would never own a Chinese Crested Dog. If the choice was based on too "vocal" of a dog, I probably wouldn't own a beagle....they sure do like to make noise all the time...but they are as cute a puppy as any breed.

But at the end of the day, I love 'em all and certainly understand those that own the dogs I would choose not to own.

pit bull
pit bull mixes
bully breeds, like cane corso's, doggo argentina's, presa canario and the like.

Sorry, I just don't like the way they look.

Neapolitan Mastiffs, chows, akitas,

any hairless breeds

Any tail-less breeds

Any corded breeds

Any with wire-hair breeds

Any breed that needs extensive grooming

Any breed that doesn't shed

Any breed that has to be docked or cropped to look like the breed standard

Any type deliberately mixed to produce a silly name: sheperdoodle, puggle, shih-poo


Northern dogs: huskies, malamutes, samoyeds, newfoundlands

pack-hunting dogs, hounds

terriers (unless I do not get my rodent situation cleared up)

toy dogs

It would be probably easier to type what type of dog I am willing to own.

Dogs I'd not be interested in owning:

Shi tzu and similar toy coated types - Maltese, Yorkie, etc.

Doodles of any sort

Golden retriever


Not a fan of most of the look of a lot of the squished face dogs - bulldogs, boxers, etc. My parents have a pug and she's really smart, sweet, and healthy, but I'd never own one.

Nothing against any of these, I know lots of people who own them and love them, just not my type overall!

I would not own a beagle (too loud, and puppy sat 2 and they were TERRIBLE) or a rottie (beautiful dogs, just not for me) as well as toy breeds, just nto a small dog person.. I would love to rescue in the future so I can't say I would NEVER have one of them, just not my first choice..

Labs, I feel bad for some of them, the majority around me are just terribly fat.
