What is your favortie breed and the best and why!

My favortie is the siberian huskie (even though i've never had 1) i want to breed them! and the best is a german sheperd because my german sheperd bailey is so protective theres only 3 people she'd NEVER bite even if she had to and thats me my mom and my aunt! I wanna hear from you!

Why not get a husky that needs a home instead of thinking of breeding them in the future. So many unwanted dogs that need homes.
And why would you want your dog to be so protective that it would bite other people? It can be good to have a dog that is protective so long as you can control it at all times.
And yes, Siberian Husky is a beautiful dog along with the great german sheperd! http://PetoftheDay.com/talk/smile.gif

The favorite and the best breed (in my opinion) is the beagle, they are adorable, lovable, kind, smart, amusing,..... and my beagle is the best friend you could ever have :0)

I would like to in the future have a german shorthaired pointer.

I love all breeds but I honestly think you can't beat a mutt http://PetoftheDay.com/talk/smile.gif

If I absolutely had to pick, I may pick a labrador because of their sweet temperments but again, I love them all and don't think I could pick just one.

German Shepherd Dogs because they are smart, loyal, protective, loving, fun and beautiful!! http://PetoftheDay.com/talk/smile.gif http://PetoftheDay.com/talk/smile.gif

I'm with Aly. I love all breeds. I have 4 mixed breed dogs and love them all. Mutts are a special breed all their own. Some of the combinations are strange, but still lovable.

BTW, there are purebred Huskies and German shepherd at rescue shelters just begging for a forever home.

This story just goes to show you can never be too careful with who will get your beloved puppies. With so many unwanted dogs and cats out there why add to them??

I have been a "silent" fan of Petwarmers for a long time now, but with
the recent focus on two of my favorite subjects -- Bichon Frises and
rescued pets -- I feel compelled to share my own experience.
Eleven years ago my best friend's Bichon had the most adorable, loving
and amusing little puppies. I desperately wanted one, but being a newly
divorced mother of three young children I felt that the strain -- on both
my budget and my time with my children -- would be too much, and so the
pups were all sold.
Ten months later, my friend received a call from one of the puppy's
adoptive families. They did not want the pup any longer -- if she didn't
come take it, it would be "disposed" of.
I was horrified!
Within minutes we were on our way. I will never be able to forget
this dog's miserable living conditions. She was in a cage, inside a closed
cabinet, under a bathroom sink in the basement! These people explained to
us that they NEVER took her out, and that they left her down there because
she cried too much. She was pathetically thin with a coat that was
completely gray and matted -- if I didn't know that she was a Bichon, I
would never have guessed.
I sat down on the floor and the puppy was placed before me.
My heart broke as she attempted to crawl into my lap. She couldn't
walk properly -- her muscles were atrophied from lack of use, she was weak
and dehydrated, her spirit was all but broken -- yet she was desperate for
love and attention. She wriggled her little body and tail as she fiercely
kissed my face again and again.
I was not leaving her in that place. I was already in love and
feeling so relieved that I had been able to rescue her and save her life.
I didn't realize then that Kimba was also saving MY life...
You see, I was also recovering from long term abuse. Domestic
violence had left emotional scars that were taking a long time to heal.
Trust did not come easily to me, and my self-esteem was at an all-time low.
Financially I was facing disaster. Though a highly skilled college
graduate, I lacked the confidence to attempt anything more than my current
part-time job.
Kimba changed all of that.
Her indomitable spirit and keen intelligence made her the perfect
friend and partner. I have never had to train her. From the very first
day I brought her home she just KNEW what was expected of her. She
responds correctly to casual comments made in a conversational tone. I
know it sounds far-fetched, but it is absolutely true. I cannot explain
the bond that exists between us, but it is strong and it is real.
Her incredible devotion to me, her constant love and adoration, and MY
success in helping her to become all that she is, ultimately had a profound
effect on me. It didn't happen overnight, but I am very proud to say that
with Kimba's help (as well as my children's, friend's and family!) I was
able to pull myself together.
Today, I own a business where Kimba is the undisputed queen. She comes
to work with me every day, has her own sofa in my office, eats lunch with
the rest of us... do I sound crazy? I AM ... about this amazing little dog
who rescued me just as surely as I rescued her.
One final note: Kimba DOES the same "dance" that the Westminster
winner did when he won the award -- most Bichons do, when they are happy or
excited or just want to make you laugh. It's no wonder that most Bichon
owners are labeled "crazy!"
You can't help but fall head over heels in love with these fuzzy
little angels!

3. Miniature Pinschers (don't really like small dogs but I just had to put that one in there!)
4. Collies/Shetland sheepdogs
5. Boxers

What a powerful story! Dogs (pets) are so amazing! I wish the previous family could have been charged with animal neglect/abuse. But the ending was happy. Sounds like Jayne and Kimba were searching for each other. They were meant to be.

Rottweilers I think are the best dogs. I love their personality, and to tell you the truth, the gruesome stories about victims being attacked and injured from these loveable dogs, only happen once in a while. People forget to point out the good in these dogs, only looking for the bad because tehy've heard 'stories.' http://PetoftheDay.com/talk/frown.gif

i like rottwhilers (how ever youspell it lol) Because they are like big teddy bears there was this one rottie (thats what i'm gonig to call them) that was huge he was like 3 and half feet big and wide lol and he slooberd all over me! his name was harley ! and he felt like a lion when he was trying to play with me (at least he liked me) i just thought that was funny though!
