I love a dog that is toy driven and food driven. A dog that is not rude (dogs annoy me that have no respect for space, slam into you, etc). I love a dog that fetches, loves water, loves being active. I like a dog that is very into me, but also independent enough. Also athletic but not bouncing off the walls constantly. Intelligent, eager, desire to learn. Not noise sensitive or very fearful. I prefer dogs that aren't darters, and at least somewhat trustworthy off leash. Goofy yet serious when necessary! Doesn't have to love every one (actually would prefer not to) but at least be friendly with people and other dogs. Jackson is almost all of these things - the main thing I'd change is his fears and sound sensitives.
