Re: first dog

First dog we ever had when I was a kid (it was always cats were OK, but no dog) was a small mix named Charlie. Near as we could tell he was part dachsund and part terrier. Great little dog.

Re: first dog

German shepherd when I was 16. Before that there were 2 other GSDs in the house but he was the first that was MINE. 4 More GSDs after him and stack of rescues. Nothing but shepherds. We used to call our house Heaton's Home for Wayward German Shepherds.

Re: first dog

First dog I owned or first dog I lived with?

My parents got a puppy a year before I was born. She was a mixed breed. They got her from friends who had a "cockapoo" (cocker spaniel/poodle mix) who had a litter. The father was unknown, maybe part terrier. Tansy was about 17 pounds and 12" at the shoulder, she looked a little like a tiny sheepdog except when she was shaved for the summer- then she looked like a JRT/poodle mix.


The first dog I actually owned myself was my stray rescue Golden Retriever.

Re: first dog

As a child, we had a White male German Shepherd.

First dog I personally owned and trained myself, a smart fun-loving Golden Retriever. She passed away at 6yrs, but she certainly made a lot of changes while here.

Re: first dog

The first breed we ever had was a Dalmatian who was rescued from an organization at that time called I believe Adopt a Pet where they helped people rehome their dogs but they remained in the home, we adopted him for 25.00 and he was a 1 1/2 yr old and had been through 2 different homes, we were his last where he passed away too short lived (for me) at the age of 10y in my arms, he was probably a BYB dalmatian he was never the healthest but loved him all the same and he was awesome.

Boxer. Love the breed even though training my shepherd has been so so much easier than any boxer.

Re: first dog

First dog was Natasha a Great Dane, my parents had her about a year before I was born and my mother told me stories about Natasha sleeping under my crib, and when I'd cry in the night she'd jump up and knock the swinging crib door open locking her under my crib until my mother freed her. She passed away when I was 7-8 but I still remember her pretty well considering that was 35 years ago.
