I grew up with Basset Hounds. They are great dogs. Laid back personality, love to be with their humans and they are just all around good. The only drawback I know of really is that their slobber can strip the finish off of furniture.

I currently have a Rat Terrier and a Boxer mix. They are both rescue animals, as are most of my animals. They get along great. They play together and whoever had the Boxer, Moose, first trained him not to put his mouth on humans. He will not bite even in play.

I wish you the best in making your decision. I prefer adoption to buying from a breeder since the shelters are overwhelmed with animals.

My favourite breed is the German Shepherd, but you need a house with a yard, and plenty of energy as they require a lot of exercise. They are intelligent, so you always have to think of new ways to keep their brains working. Loyal, fun and fearsome to outsiders. biggrin.gif

I've yet to meet a breed to match and I've encountered many.

Ahhh . . . the taste of an omnivore. But I have heard or read that wolf is disgusting, so evidently dogs have had more of the plant base added to their diets by domestication.

stoirmeil;

Never ate Wolf, don't think I'd want to, I can see where they wouldn't be to appetizing as they are predomanately carnivores. They few time I have eaten dog it definitly tasted more like Pork.

The greatest dogs are those medium-sized mixes, collie/lab, or collie/shepherd, with the longish silky fur and black-and-tan markings. People often call them things like "Shep" or "Buddy." Their whole soul is in their eyes. They are fantastic companions, intelligent and sensitive to your mood, not too barky, but protective and fine watchdogs, patient with babies and small kids.

Stoirmeil, you reminded me of our own Shep. We got him when he was almost two years old. (The girl who had him, couldn't keep him anymore. She worked with my wife, so we got him) He was a collie /shepard mix. He was very good with the kids and guarded them like a hawk. When the youngest was still in diapers, he would get out and wander down the road (a dirt road in the country). Shep was right with him and would herd him away from anything dangerous. One day we found him dragging our son home by the diaper. The boy had gone to a neighbor's pond and Shep intervened. As the boys got older, Shep went with them to the school bus stop every morning and met them every afternoon.

He was very friendly if he met you on the road or in your yard, but if you came into our yard, you were not to be trusted and were "escorted" everywhere. We lived about a half mile from my folks and Shep would guard their house too. There was a spell of breakins once and my parent's house and ours were the only ones not hit. We chalked it up to Shep. Shep's son, Bear, was half chow and he was trained by Shep to take over, which he did as Shep got too old. Shep trained him well; Bear took right in where Shep left off.

I have a black lab. She is great although can be a chow hound; garbage, crayons, tissues etc. But her gentle nature makes up for everything!

jawdrop.gif eek.gif Mind you, I have a friend that used to indulge in such culinary taste. However, she was quite taken back when Thanksgiving comes around in Canada and we have Turkey.......Apparently Turkeys are their pets in the Phillippines.

I must agree with you Donajhi Rottie's do make great friends. Had at one time a male named Max 165 lb. giant German (my bud) had him for 8 years,at the same time a female named Harlot America Rott and she lived til she was 12 years old. The best house watchers and baby-sitters that I have ever known. Would get another giant German in a heartbeat. Miss them both.

We currently have three Shelties. In fact, we have rescued the Shetland Sheepdog (Sheltie) for 25 years. We keep saying we're going to get another breed next time around, but always end up taking in another Sheltie. yeah, they shed and need a lot of brushing, but they are extremely intelligent and very loyal dogs. They also make great watch dogs. I would not recommend getting one after having children in your home. They are a wee bit neurotic. But when a child is first in the home and the Sheltie comes next, they are extremely protective of the child and family. Family comes first for the Sheltie. They are truly great dogs! We have had seven of them through the years.

I think you should get any kind of dog that you will fall in love with. I believe that if you can love a dog with at least half as much enthusiam as he or she will love you, then life will be good.

I live with two Irish Wolfhounds. A 6 y/o retired puppy mill breeding female and her two year old pupply. Yup two years old and still a puppy. Irish wolfhounds only have two stages of life, puppy and geriatric. They bring me a great deal of joy.

While I like many a dog, our Pomeranian (Little Spitz) has our heart. Her name is Emma. Her mother died at the Vet Hospital when giving birth to the litter. The owner couldn't deal with a motherless litter, so we volunteered to take one - a purebred. She is 2-1/2 years in this picture, attached.

You might not only check the pet adoptions and shelters, but give your local Vet Hospital your name & number and type of dog you would consider taking as a pup - so if they get orpan pups you could help out. At least that is the way they do it in Kintukee...
