    I have English, German, French, and Scots-Irish in me, and I'm American. So I can't really narrow it down that much

    I am right there with you! lol

    I am Scandinavian. While I do like old breeds, and some of the Nordic Spitz are appealing to me... I've never found myself in their midst. Probably because coated breeds just aren't well suited for my lifestyle.

    I'm American with primarily Irish, English, Welsh heritage (roughly 75%) with a Jewish (heritage) great-grandfather and some Native American, Russian, and French thrown in. So... American Cocker Spaniel lines up with my primary heritage, kind of, maybe. My dog is half of that.

    Other dogs I'd consider:

    American
    Australian Shepherd
    Boston Terrier
    Boykin Spaniel
    McNab (dog) (love!!!!)
    Silken Windhound

    English
    English springer (dog is half that)
    Border Collie
    English Cocker Spaniel
    English Springer Spaniel
    Field Spaniel
    French Bulldog
    Sussex Spaniel
    Whippet

    Welsh
    Cardigan corgi (kind of want one, anyway).
    Welsh Springer Spaniel

    I love Irish setters, but they are a little too big for me, though I might still get one, someday. Irish wolfhounds I love, but they are HUGE! English setters are again a little too big, but I love them.

    I'm basically an all-American mutt, and a lot of American breeds are ones I would consider, depending on my circumstances at the time: Aussies, English Shepherds, American Bulldogs (although I'm really picky about the type), Silken Windhounds, AmStaffs, Blue Lacys...

    Although I'm mainly just a mutt of mutts, my grandma's grandparents (so my great-great-grandparents?) were from Mexico. I don't know much about Xolos since I'm not a hairless fan although maybe I should learn more about the coated variety. I enjoy a Chihuahua with the proper temperament but could never own one, just way too tiny for me.

    I like Labs and Tollers and Newfoundlands. :) I'll probably own a Toller one day.

    I've never met a Canadian Eskimo Dog, though they seem neat enough.

    I love cane corsos and neopolitan mastiffs.
