Other than GSD, your favorite breed of dog?

Doberman! Its a goal to have 2 or 3 GSDs along with a Doberman. All in time. I love the look of the Doberman so much that when i was 18 I had a doberman tattooed on my chest. Never owned one...but have two GSDs. Guess I need to have one of my GSDs tattooed on me now too?

I also have interest in wolf dogs and Huskies.

Well, my other favorite dog of all is the American Pit Bull Terrier. Amazing, amazing animal and I can't imagine my life without them.

But after them comes the Caucasian Ovcharka, Native American Indian Dog, Kurdish Kangal, American Bully (well bred, correct ones), Bully Kutta, anything Wolf (be it pure or mixed with dog), Irish Wolfhound, Greyhound, working line Bull Terriers, Patterdale Terriers.. The list goes on!

I don't really have a favourite breed other than GSD's and Shiloh Shepherds but I always wanted a Beuceron and a Leonberger.

What are you talking about? There are other breeds

I think GSDs are the only breed I will ever have. Maybe if a rescue/foster situation came about and I had time I'd have a Malinois or Cattle Dog

I am a Rottweiler person. My next dog will be a well-bred Rottweiler from a breeder for showing in conformation and obedience/rally.

I also wouldn't mind a Doberman. This one would likely be a rescue.

For littles and shorts, I like the Swedish Vallhunds, Italian Greyhounds and Papillons. If something happened to me where I could not have a large dog it would be one of these breeds.

I love my lab, she is the best.

I have great interest in the Airedale Terrier, or Giant Schnauser(need spellchecker).

I like most breeds, for all their different attributes.

I like Livestock Guardian breeds like the Pyrenees, Anatolian, etc. Currently have an Akbash dog and I LOVE him.

I am interested in Standard Schnauzers, might own one someday, except I like TAILS on my dogs.

I like sighthounds, for their beauty, their gentle temperament, and their sense of humor.

I like long-legged terriers--don't know if I'd want to own one, but I LOVE grooming them.

I like a well-bred Doberman. Loyal, loving dogs.

I admire any breed that still does the job they were originally developed for, and does it well.

I'll have to speak up for the Australian Shepherds. They have a good mix of intuitive and intelligent. However, they CAN be psycho, short-tempered, or hyper. If you choose wisely you can get rock solid animals. I have loved mine. Not all of them shed profusely -- in general it seems merles shed more than the tri-colors.

I'd consider getting a border collie if I couldn't get a GSD.

Love to watch the doberman move...so graceful!
My next dog (when I am retired) will be a Cardigan Corgi.
...a GSD in mind/ a small body of energy!
