I'd love to have a groenendael one day. I'm fascinated with herding dogs.

When I was growing up (and not allowed to have a dog) I used to read the books about the different breeds. I knew them by heart. I wanted each and every one of them all for different reasons. THEN I started to work with dogs. Today the list of breeds that I would actually want in my home has shrunk considerably. Too many breeds have been ruined by popularity and therefore over breeding (BAD breeding). Your average mutt is still the way to go (IMO). But then again, I don't have a dog.

If I was to have a rarer breed, I'd probably have an ibizan hound. LOOOVE them! :D

But I'm still having a Catahoula leopard dog and a German shepherd dog. I guess you can classify a Catahoula as rare, right? Humm.

I only want a few special breeds when I get older and even then I will rescue them all.

I want Pitt bulls.
I want Newfoundlands, although I'm not sure if this will happen they are my fav breed, I'm in love with them.
Dobermans, I love them so much.
and Shelties, I hope to MAYBE be a breeder, but that would take ALOT of research on the breed and stuff and is WAY down the line.

All the rest of my dogs will be mutts.
