    Mutts!

    I also heart GSD's, Akitas, pit bulls, boxers, great danes, dobermans, and ridgebacks

    If i had to pick a "little" dog to like - beagles and JRT's aren't so bad.

    I'd actually say that my favorite breed is the Akita (betcha thought I was gonna say corgis! lol). I LOVE the way they look and their temperment (from what I've read) would match mine fairly well.

    That being said, they would not fit into my lifestyle right now nor could I handle one, the corgi is the best match for me right now :)

    Papillons because they have the most amazing temperaments. They're very sweet, goofy, intelligent, energetic little dogs. I just can't get enough of them!

    If I could only have one breed of dog for the rest of my life it would be a (working line) Fila. We're well suited to each other :)

    I love working line Border Collies. :) I adore this breed because, intelligents, to watch one work is beyond amazing let alone to know you've had the exp. to train one.

    Really just everything about the breed fits me. Brains, Beauty, Working ability, Striving for the best.

    But some other breeds I really admire are the Aussie, Great Dane, Fila, and Golden.

    My all time favorite has been dobes, and I've always liked Mastiffs, too. But lately I've been working with a lot of Bassets-- And I've just fallen in love with them! I just pulled one from a county shelter today, and he's the sweetest thing I've ever met in my life :D

    kelpies
    they're clever, not just smart, but clever. They are problem solvers, i love their activity level and how you have to make them want to work with you. I love their reserved nature.
    I love the way they look, and the way a good working dog moves. They expression in their eyes that makes you know you should watch what you say in case they hear you. I love their looks, their general shape and physical traits.

    Koolies (shorthaired)
    still learning about them, i've read on a few different pages that once someone works with a koolie, they never change breeds.
    Basically, all the same i said about kelpies, plus i LOVE the merle colouring.
    It will either be Koolies or Kelpies that I go on to compete in herding with.

    ACD's
    i can't forget them, much the same as kelpies, ie reserved nature, great workers, endurance and stamina.
    But i see differences in their personality's.
    ACD's seem more smart than clever.
    While kelpies seem sneakier, ACD's are more into being involved.

    I love all 3, still can't shake kelpies from the very top of the list though i don't think, everythign about them just seem's right.
