I love little Fox Terriers and Jack Russels.
Used to have a black and white Mini Fox Terrier. geez he was a good dog! Great size, full of energy. Was always keen to hang out but if he couldn't he'd chill at home till we were ready to hang. Really miss that dog.

Other than that I love the look of those grey staffys!
The grey Stafford are called Blue staffies for some reason mate.

If I had to have 3 different dogs I’d probably go with Rhodesian Ridgeback, German Shepherd, and a Rottweiler.

My cousin has a fucking massive Rottweiller. There's no way you'd go through the door of their house without her or her husband being there given the size and scariness of that dog. Once, however, when you've been given consent to enter the dog is as soft as fucking shit with you. He's often been trained very well, to attack when a stranger enters the property, but to love when someone comes in who's allowed in. Love 'em.

A guy I worked with many years ago asked me to stop by his house and give him a hand hanging sheetrock in a room he tore out to make into a game room. I knew he had a pair or Rotts in his yard but had never interacted with them. As soon as I pulled into the driveway both those massive beasts were at the fence eyeing me like I was a pork chop and they were starving.

He let me in the house to check out what needed to be done and it happened to be the room in the back of his house that led outside to his storage shed where he was keeping the sheetrock. Out we go, and of course he's not concerned about the dogs, but my asshole was cutting buttonholes. The two dogs ran up and he "introduced" me to them and all was fine.

Couple hours later he had to run off for some supplies he forgot to get and I went outside to smoke a cigarette (I had that nasty habit at that time). The big male that had to be 140 lbs. came up to me as I was sitting on the back steps and walked right up between my legs and plopped his head in my lap. He wasn't showing any signs of aggression, but he sure didn't look like I was his best friend either. I smoked and stroked his head, almost resigned to the fact if that animal felt like it, he could castrate me in about .02 seconds. My buddy finally showed back up and when he saw the dog he busted out laughing and saying the dog must really like me to get that close. I felt I was lucky to not have to change my shorts.

That's such an ace post. Dogs aren't stupid, on the contrary. I guess that dog knew you were a good fella and that although he wasn't going to kill you he wanted also to let you know the boundaries (him not looking like your best friend) despite being soft with you.

Once you're on a dog's property and an owner is with them then if it's been trained well it'll be all fine. It's when you get meatheads with no idea who've dragged their dogs up that you get the problems with.

My little Staffy dog was soft as shit and she wouldn't have bitten anyone, but she was the best burglar alarm I ever had. She'd growl/bark to let you know someone was close by in the dead of night (or in the daytime), and she thought something might be amiss, that's all you need. She saved me £800 on a burglar alarm.

Yeah I’ve just met a few really nice ones. Ridgebacks are my favourite dogs, all in all.

I've always loved German Shepherds as I grew up with many of them during my life and contrary to what some will say they were always good with kids.

My dad had a Malinois (the dog passed on a few years ago) that was probably the most intelligent dog I've been around and just straight up cool as fuck.

I do like Spaniel's another breed I've grown up with. The one I've got at the minute is a bit of a dick but a loveable dick I suppose.
Malinois are like slightly modified German Shepherds, right? The Belgians being cunts and wanting to deny the Germans credit for breeding a great dog or something?

I’m pretty sure it was @RDJ , if Bart’s files are correct, who had a pretty cool story about going to deliver something at a house and their Ridgeback was on guard.

I did some reading up on them after reading your post earlier. Apparently they're supposed to be really intelligent, very perceptive and really loyal...they're also dead good looking dogs.

The standard schnauzer. Mine was the best. Passed away earlier this year.

Me Doris didn’t want a new dog, doesn’t care for the stink & shedding. Managed to convince her to get a non-odorous and non-shedding Australian Labradoodle.

Still the standard schnauzer is best, giant schnauzer also cool. Stubborn, cocky & independent. And not as mean or feisty as a terrier.

Favorite small dog: Dachshund - the size of the dog is not indicative of the fight those little fuckers have in them, they can be downright vicious

Favorite big dog: German Shepherd - good balance of intelligence and protective instincts with the size to intimidate someone breaking into your house
I have had a dachshund. IT was a funny beast. They are also very intelligent.
He always Made me laugh his caracter was a bit like a clown. He felt somehow when i was down. Then he always acted xtra funny to cheer me up

This is like someone asking what your favourite breed of human is. You don't want to say, because it's racist, but you definitely have a favourite. I mean, keep it to yourself, by all means, but we all know you have a favourite.
