It depends:) Masi is fine with her doggie friends and dogs in her pack,,she likes small dogs OUTSIDE her pack, is neutral to others unless they get in her face and then all bets are off:)..so not sure how to vote:)

Molly loves meeting other dogs, although they sometimes get intimidated by her. Here's a couple photos of a recent event:

Delgado is great with all dogs in his pack, which includes dogs which belong to family and friends and even my parents fosters. He knows which ones to submit to and which ones he can play rough with.

Outside his pack, it depends on the dog. Just walking down the street on leash he's still learning to ignore them 100% and on playdates he can play with most dogs and will adjust his play but he prefers the more rough and tumble/chase me type of games.

Dakoda is good with SOME other dogs outside of her pack. It's been a life-long struggle with her, and right now she generally just tolerates strange dogs. With other females she can be VERY nasty.
Nashoba and Acheron LOVE other dogs, pack or not. They do prefer to stick to their pack, and ignore/move away from dogs who are rude, though.

Our pack is a nice size, though. Acheron, Dakoda, Nashoba, Sir Nicholas, Klause, Schatzi, Bella, Leo, Thor and White-Cloud. Lol!

Titan doesn't like nor dislike other dogs. If they come in our yard he will alert me but that's about it.. haven't tested to see what he would do. When we are out and about and we meet other dogs he sniffs and is done.. really just wants mama time. :) I like it that way. When we go to the dog park, same way, he will always want to sniff every dog then play with mom. He rarely plays with other dogs the way most dogs play.. and other dogs can't play fetch with him. lol.

So far so good, although he's not even 2 yet so things may change. Only 1 of my previous GSDs has been good with unfamiliar dogs, but the other 2 weren't. They've all been good with those inside their pack though.

Before Ollie turned 1 a couple months ago he was always fantastic with dogs in and outside of the pack, he especially loves little dogs. Now that he's 14 months (and still intact) he's starting to change a bit, becoming more dominant, less tolerant of dogs approaching me, and more protective of his pack. We know longer do off leash around other dogs. Now on leash is a whole other matter as we've been dealing with leash reactivity towards dogs since he was 6 months old.

Sinister is 4.5 years old.

He gets along great with other dogs outside of his pack and he has several dog friends including a 11 month old male Doberman, a 2.5 year old male Doberman, a 3 year old female Doberman and until recently a 14.5 year old female GSD/Husky mix.

He is also great with his pack which temporarily includes a female ACD mix, a female Min Pin and a male Dalmatian.

I didnt vote, because although Dexter is good with both big and little dogs, hes only 9 months. Im sure this may change as he gets older. Im hoping it doesnt.

He might have a few changes - maybe 6-12 months of bad adolescent behavior and then a change for the better closer to 3 years old.

Wylie is good with dogs in his pack and outside, but he is only 6 months and still very much a puppy. (He likes everybody.)

Wait... what's the difference between option 1 and option 4?

It's multiple choice.

Some dogs might be good with the dogs in their pack but they are not good with other people's dogs that are not in their pack.

Some dogs don't get along with their pack.
