when taking Duece (almost 6 months) for walks he pretty much ignores all dogs except for a beautiful GSD which he just wants to stop and stare at. Can dogs recognize there own kind and if not why is he so fascinated with this dog?

I can't help but think so. Gracie is the same way. It could have something to do with my reaction to seeing another GSD. Who knows but it is pretty amazing. At training, Gracie will be quiet in the car but when her half brother is working, she is all barking and squirrley!!

I'm inclined to think so. Morgan loves the boys, will smile and shake her tail for any old mutt. Females, she won't talk to them unless their GSDs and they'd better not get snippy with her or she turns her nose up and walks away!

You know, I can't make sense out of it, but Annabelle always does the same thing. When I take her to the dog park she always ends up ignoring all other dogs but the GSD's.

My beagle tends to hang out with the "bigger dogs". He won't play with the small dogs at the dog park. He has a Mastiff friend, a Doberman friend, and he ran around with a 3 pack of wolf-hybrids last time we were there. He wouldn't leave them! It really looked funny!

Maybe they remind them of their littermates or parents? Not so much knowing 'hey that's a GSD like me!', but seeing the resemblance to what they knew as pups.

Reich is dog aggressive, her only doggie-friend is a male GSD, my mother's.

It's funny because when Chevy was in puppy school, there was a long coat GSD in the class and they became buddies. Chevy would sniff the other puppies in class but only played with the other GSD.

Have not noticed it with my sheps but it was VERY pronounced with my adopted greyhound and noted by many other grey owners that greys were greys and therefore friends and dogs were dogs and had to prove themselves.My grey would go nuts if he even sighted another grey but pretty much ignore other breeds.
