    Zeus, blackmouth cur:

    Steady, sweet, good-natured and insanely quiet. He is usually pretty dignified, but is always ready to indulge in a little cuddling. I call him my "perfect dog." While he is obedience trained, he certainly wasn't a natural at it. It took a lot of work and patience. He's not a stupid dog; he's great at problem-solving and is very willing to work with you. I just don't think that blackmouth curs are "tuned" to obedience like working/herding breeds are. He has a very high prey drive towards small animals, so I can never let him off-leash.

    He's the most mellow dog I've ever had. Zeus can run and play for long periods of time if he's in the mood, but is just as happy to curl up on the couch and sleep all day. As one of my friends said: "He's like a giant cat!"

    Voodoo, catahoula leopard dog:

    Oy. *sigh*. We call him "The Catahoula Terror." He's active, sneaky, egotistical, mischievious, has a stubborn streak and is frighteningly intelligent. Everything is bounce-bounce-wiggle-bounce-wiggle. He learns obedience at an amazing rate: I taught him "sit", "stay" and "leave it" in less than 20 minutes...total. Voodoo is still a pup, but is already protective of our house and yard. He doesn't usually like dogs of the opposite sex, but I hope that will get better with training.

    Aside from his activity level, he's actually a very well-behaved pup. He doesn't do any destructive chewing, barking, dumpster diving or any other inappropriate behavior.

    He gets cheeky with Zeus every now and again, but Zeus will not hesitate to put him in his place if he gets too annoyed.

    Daisy - Athletic, strong, loves to place fetch with frisbees, intelligent, easy to train - these she gets from the labrador. Stubborn, loves to go for sniffs, aloof with people except immediately family, shy - these characteristics come from hound (most likely redtick coonhound).

    Benji - Energetic, high prey drive, very intelligent, sweet, bossy, loud, funny, stubborn! He is a schnauzer/dachshund mix and has a lot of traits from both breeds, including a heart murmur, which dachshunds are known to have.

    Andy is, in my opinion, the perfect sheltie. He is very smart, willing, and affectionate, but he is also brave. Not much startles him, and those who know shelties, know that this is a great attribute. He will play forever, but he also senses if I want to cuddle and he'll crawl up in my lap and go to sleep. He's the perfect dog for me :)

    Dakota is, in a word, responsible. When given the choice to do what he wants, he will choose to do the "right thing". He is somewhat bipolar, going from serious and stoic to rowdy and playful in the time it takes for me to whip out a tennis ball. He loves work and learns very quickly. He isn't the kind of dog that I have to train using "traditional" methods... clickers, treats, etc. are all secondary to praise and a cuddle. He actually learns by example, which makes teaching tricks very easy.
    He's super drivey and very intense when we are working but he is very easy to live with indoors. He spends most of his time sleeping or watching TV when I am too busy to pay much attention to him.
    He is very friendly and likes the company of people and other dogs alike, but has proven on numerous occasions that he will do all he can to protect me if the need arises. He lives to make life easier for me. :) I just cannot say enough good things about him, I looove this dog.

    Ripley is brilliant. Brilliant, and evil. He loves the thrill of crime and will do the wrong thing repeatedly just for the hell of it. He's extremely active . . . No, beyond active. He's insane. He is impossible to wear out. I have let him run for hours on end in the yard, and when I bring him in he still wants to play with his toys and wreak havoc. He only sleeps when I put him in his crate.
    He's truly dominant. Most of the things he does ARE an attempt to overtake someone. He is constantly trying to "take over the world".
    Ripley is not friendly. He generally doesn't like people, though he tolerates other dogs as long as they aren't too pushy. He will warm up to a strange person and allow them to touch him after a while, but doesn't enjoy a lot of attention from them until he's positive that they are a "friend". He likes to scare the crap out of people and has to be watched carefully to make sure he isn't going to spaz out on an unsuspecting guest.
    There are some things that he absolutely despises. Things that set him off into a growling/snapping rage include plastic grocery store bags, the pool skimmer and a certain blue coffee mug of mine. He's honestly afraid of them, but won't show it.
    Despite the fact that you really do not want to live with this dog, he is one of a kind and life with him is never dull :D

    Gunnar- GSD- real intelligent, aloof towards strangers, playful with people he knows, off the chart ball/toy drive, very very vocal when he wants something or when he is in "patrol" mode in the yard. Velcro dog (he's never more than 10' from me), super athletic, finicky eater, likes to cuddle but on his terms- he will come over a few times a day and put his head on your lap, then gradually climb up into your lap for some hugs, then he gets down. He has to be in charge and be aware of everything that is going on, and he'll let you know when something has changed.

    Bruzer- Pug- probably smarter than he lets on. A ball of energy, can be cery playful when he wants to be but is always active and moving. Another velcro dog, he's literally under my feet all day. He's a cuddly love bug who enjoys getting up in the chair with you and having a nap. He snores like a banshee. Tons and tons of personality- big dog in a little dog body. He'll play tug w/ Gunnar and when he lets go, he prances over like he won the battle, waiting for praise and petting. Great watch dog- he barks at the slightest noise. Athletic for a toy dog, but he doesn't have much stamina especially in the heat. Scared of stuff, he will jump at the slightest noise. He was even scared of his metal food bowl because it would make noise when he went to get food out of it and it moved. I had to change him to a plastic bowl or paper plates, but he' s scared of those too.

    Midnite- GSD/Golden mix, 12 years old. The queen of the house. She is a wonderful loving dog. She sleeps and rests a lot nowadays, and her favorite thing to do is lay on the deck and sun herself. She's very intelligent but doesn't like to show it. Set in her ways. Calm and submissive, yet for a long time was the top dog out of the 3 of them. She can get cranky with Gunnar because he's a big oaf and bangs into her, and she's arthritic so she can't take any kind of physical play like Bruzer can. We're going to miss her when her time comes.
