Default The Perfect Breed?

A friend and I took the young dogs out for a romp tonight and the topic of discussion was "finding the perfect breed" and changed to "choosing the perfect puppy/dog."

It was kind of interesting to hear how our dog choices are similar, yet very different. She currently owns a Labrador Retriever and a Flat Coated Retriever. (She's also watching two 9-month old Flattie puppies and a Pomeranian right now.)

My criteria are: people and dog social, longer than lab-length fur but shorter than flattie-length, has a full tail, longevity in the breed/lines, hunting breed-preferably a retriever or spaniel.

Her criteria were: dog and people social (she does SAR), less than 60#, hunting breed. Preferably a low maintenance coat.

It leaves a lot of specifics out but it was kind of fun to see if the dogs we're interested in even fit our criteria. Number one dog on her list is currently a small munsterlander. She's also considered a french brittany, a springer, or another lab.

My #1 is still a toller but I've also considered a springer from the right lines or... a lab... maybe. I really like the super low maintenance coat Amber has!
