Big...i've grown up with big mixes AND, i'm rather tall, and am very limb-y (think baby giraffe)...i'm constantly terrified i'd trip over toddlers or anything smaller thn knee height....

Besides, the bigger the dog, the better hugs i can give it

Big dogs!! I have a Great Dane, 2 GSD and a little GR mix thing. I find that bigger dogs are easier to potty train, get tired easier on a hike and are more fun to wrestle with lol

I had a little cocker spaniel once and I swear she had no idea when she was pooping! she would turn around looking like she was so surprised that fell out of her butt.

plus she would steal money out my wallet it and eat it, it was crazy.

When I am old I will only have Great Danes cuz they are super lazy LOL

Since you're posting this on a GSD forum, the answer should be obvious.

BIG!

You dont have to bend down to pet them.

You dont have to worry about stepping on them.

They are more intimidating.

They are not as fragile as a little dog.

They can protect you better than a little dog could.

Little dogs are usually yappy and annoying.

Big dogs give better hugs!

I would feel a heck of alot safer with a German Shepherd than a Toy Poodle.

I actually prefer a little of both. We have always had one of both at least one small dog(min pins) and the rest larger dogs. The min pins can always hold their own with a big dog. They are not easily intimidated so we have a preference for the breed. They are like a big dog in a little body. As far as large breeds go we have always had a large breed dog also so a little mix of both types works out well for us.

I LOVE Min Pin's! Great little dogs! My friend has 2 of them and I always tell her I am going to stick them in my purse and take them home with me!

Min Pins are great little dogs and they get along so well with big dogs. They do not know that they aren't big dogs too.

We have owned three in all over the years. The next small breed will be a another min pin also when we are ready not right now, but in the future.
