Aussie collieish kind of dogs I suppose

I like the medium (wash and wear) coats, the color variations, happy expressions, non extreme features, compact builds, average size (40+ lbs)..

Herding breeds.
The hair, the drive, the energy, the loyalty, the loveableness (yes thats a word lol). Everything about them.
Especially merles <3

I'm really drawn to the "Farm Collie" type, the very utilitarian shape, moderate coat (I love being able to dig my fingers into a dog's coat) and attitude.

I still have a dream that I'll find the perfect shepherd/collie cross one day and he will be named Spike after one of my favorite books as a kid. One of my former clients had that dog, but obviously he was taken, so I'm hoping for a repeat.

Oh if that's what you mean, I'm sort of a working collie-, working retriever-, sporter bred-type person.

I love sleek and smooth (or fringe if that's an option). I love longer legs, nice tuck up and giant up ears (or fringe).



or this


and this


and to be quite honest pretty much this

i think it's really interesting that those of us that choose that particular build seem to focus in on the tuck up!
dunno what it is, just love dogs like that.

if i could, i would have an Azawakh or Sloughi in a heartbeat. i suppose that's the most extreme breed i can think of with that trait. i'm always hesitant to post pictures on non-dog forums of these breeds though. every single time, without fail, i get horrified replies about the dogs being emaciated, so i just don't do it anymore, lol

on the complete flipside, my ultimate favourite breed is the Chow Chow. i think because of how similar i am to them. i've owned one, and i thought she was one of the best dogs ever. she had DA issues with dogs that got too close and flirty with me, and she was not at all fond of any human that looked like they were hurting me, but beyond that i loved her. i think we are so similar though that if i had another, it wouldn't compliment me so much as mirror me almost entirely. i don't know how good or bad that can end up being. thus, i've decided to wait until later in life for another.

my ultimate Chow, a smooth cream.

I don't really have a specific look, because the few breeds that I admire (lookswise) are all so different. lol. So, no, I don't really have a general group of dogs that I admire such as herding, terriers, sporting, etc. But I do have very few breeds that I will actually take a moment and awe at and be like "wow, gorgeous" and capture my attention.

An English Mastiff such as this would get my attention:


A GSD like this:


A Border Collie:


Aussie:


Any scruffy Benji looking terrier always makes me "awwww!"
