I've posted before that I want to get a collie, but as far as the sight hounds, I would like to see a silken wind hound! I have read about them, but never have seen one! They sound like a nice energic companion, nice family smaller size dog, but like you said, don't know how they would do with a shepherd! I saw a Weimaraner at a pet expo, he was there with a rescue group and I have to say I was drawn to his personality! Got to walk him around just a little! Pretty dog, lots of energy you could tell! Then at the summer dog show last year, we were sitting on the ground watching dock diving and the sweetest Aussie slipped beside me and put his paw on my leg! He was wet, his owner was like oh I'm sorry, but that made me kinda be lookin at Aussies too! Lol!
Just some of the ones that's stood out to me, but I'd still like to have another GSD too!
