Dragonboy! The Austrailian terrior as described in my dog book is a lively, impetuous, spirited and dignified dog. Good indoor dog, likes children and is a fox hunter and a great affectionate companion!

Hope that helps!

Well, I've been looking into Brittany Spaniels lately, after seeing one on Monarch of the Glen, and I think they are beautiful dogs. I really think I'd like to have one sometime in the future.

Brian I have heard a lot about Brittany Spaniels, like Useless on MOTG. Here is what it says in my dog book about them.

"Make great house dogs, great with children, love water, great hunters, can do well in the city. Intelligent, trainable, naturally well mannered, very sweet, playful. It can become timid if treated roughly."

Hope that helps.

My favorite breed is the Great Dane (German Mastiff would be more acurate) and I owned one same years back but he died at the young age of 4 after a surprise heart attack.

Great Danes are standing up to their name Gentle Giant. He was my favorite dog ever and I plan on getting me one again after I moved out of my apartment and get my own house. Probably after my husband comes back from his Iraq tour.

Yes, it does. Thanks Rose.

We won't be looking to get one for some time...probably after we buy a house in (hopefully) a few years. We'll also be trying to find one at a Brittany Rescue or Humnae Society. Neither of us feel anyone should ever buy a dog, when there are so many left homeless that deserve a chance.

This is a decision that any wouldbe dog owner should deal with: rescue vs. the trainability of a puppy. Maybe if you rescue a pup?

Very good point, indeed. Personally, I think it would be great to rescue a pup, but I'm sure they are hard to come by.

note.gif
I have a male pug and I must tell you..
This little monkee dog is 25 lbs of muscle..
When my wife talked about getting a small dog I was
apprehensive and really wanted a Lab or a doberman
you know... a man's dog... however I've had "oscar" the pug
for almost 10 years and I look forward to his mush face every day.
He is medium maintenance however I've been fortunate.
I got him from a breeder, He is in great shape for an old dog.
WE never feed him "human" food except for baby carrots fresh out of the fridge
that's his treats and he loves them.
draw backs... If you own a fawn there are some that have a "double" coat
The shedding is intense... I can vouch for this... Ear infections are chronic and occur atleast once a year..
None of these setbacks come close to the pleasure I've had to own this breed.
They have a FANTASTIC determined personality and provide an incredable
amount of affection and laughs... what more can you ask for..

Brendan

A WESTIE, (WESTHIGHLAND TERRIER). This is a tuff little compact dog, lives
12-14 years that I know of. Is always out for a good time and great with kids.
Our 14 year old will be replaced when the hurt goes away now that he has passed.
Right now we have a lovely lady named, Sassy. She is a German Rotwieller.
Sweet gal, they get a bad rap because of censored.gif owners. She is our 3rd Rottie. Royal02.gif

For me, the favorite us the Siberian Husky. Friendly, intelligent, strong, though they are head strong and if given the opportunity will take off and run. (Is their favorite past time) We have had our "Cheyenne" for over 5 years now and I can't imagine our home without her.
They do have a second coat which does result in their shedding heavily in the spring time.
They are wonderful with children and even tolerate a cat or two. biggrin.gif

But if you get one...don't be surprised by the number of people that stop and comment either on how lovely a dog you have, or how much your dog resembles a wolf.

Right now I love Jack Russell Terriers (mine is Mathilda Peabody).

I would love to have a Cavalier King Charles. Found one but couldn't get her because I have Mathilda.
