Default Types!

do you have a favourite 'type' of dog? based on appearance, use, whatever!

i think this thread goes here?


ETA: by types i mean things like Lurchers, Bandogges, farm collies, etc etc
i know there's a lot i don't know the names of. it seems every region has a type of dog unique to them, using various breeds to obtain the perfect whatever-it-is they need!
or just type in general if you don't have a favourite 'breed'.

Collie type/Collie family. I know that sounds weird since I have spaniels. I like spaniels quite a bit but really can't see myself with most of them. And paps are the weirdest spaniel anyways.

Mid-sized, easy-to-care-for-coat, all purpose athlete type dogs. Light but not wispy. Generous but not overdone angulation -- balance above all else.

"...power without lumber and raciness without weediness."

I want a dog whose body can support and compliment the type of drive and activity I seek.

I don't know why, but I'm SOOO beyond attracted to this face!

I saw a "Japanese" Akita inu in a vehicle in a local parking lot, and really questioned getting one seriously for a short while. I do love this look-




But, in the end I really made the conscious decision that their temperament and character was not suited to what I wished to own in a dog. I admire them for what they are, but I stuck with my original breed decision, one made on temperament over looks, I did still have some control on the looks side, and opted for cropped ears-

There really isn't a set look I prefer. I do LOVE the "generic, medium-sized, street mutt" look. A nice, lean, muscular dog is my weakness.

hodesian Ridgebacks, German Shepherds, Huskies, Malamutes, Koolies, Dogo Argentinos, and APBTs are my favorite breeds, looks wise.

I guess what I'm getting at, is I prefer strong, handsome/beautiful dogs, rather than "cute" dogs. But that's subjective in itself, so...I don't know lol

I've posted this pic before, but I think it is the easiest way to describe my "type" LOL



Brown, moderate body type, with pointy ears! (All are herding breeds or herding breed mixes as well)

I love wiry, scruffy Terriers. Thats my Type when it comes to small dogs.

When it comes to big dogs I like powerful looking dogs. Like some of the molloser breeder, some herders, Pitbulls, Dogo's ect.

i have always loved the build of a Mal.

i think, for whatever reason, i am drawn to dogs with a tuck. is tuck the word for it?
and ears. i like bat ears, and ears that don't know what they want from life. like a Greyhound's ears. alien ear syndrome, they have a mind of their own.

Well built, solid herding/protection type dogs. I don't typically go for lighter boned dogs, not because I think it's unattractive (because I don't at all) but because I think they look fragile. Exception to the rule would be the Malinois just because personal experience has embedded that deep, unwavering knowledge that those dogs can take on anything.

I like dogs without any extremely distinguishable features in the sense that they look more "natural". Moderate muzzle length, moderate tuck up, etc.

Sorry, been loving on Beaucerons for several years now - think I've seen you around ProDog. That is a gorgeous dog.
