I was just thinking about this the other day. Usually I wouldn't want the same breed I've already had, because I think trying out new breeds is interesting. Plus I'd do too much comparing the new dog to the old dog, and that's probably not overly healthy. So, likely no more labs or chihuahuas for me.

But collies? I was looking at Keegan the other day and realized I can't imagine not having a collie.

Yes, yes and YES.

The looks, the brains, the drive are all perfect for me. I could see myself with a little female red tri or a self merle in the future.

Hound- Living with Duke has taught me I am not a hound person.

As for the other breeds I have owned: Collie's for sure, without a doubt. They are MY breed. I can not wait until I can add another one. GSD, maybe. I love a good gsd more than any other breed but its rare I come across one I would want to own anymore. BC, again maybe. I like them enough that if the right one came along I would not turn it down, but they are not on my want list.
I feel the same but an even more emphatic YES! to the westie and I can certainly see an aussie in the future.

Yup, still a Malinois girl. I live my APBT/AmStafs, but the breed community and the things you have to deal with when you own one will likely keep me away from them in the future.

APBT - Definitely! I acquired my second last Aug and am just now breaking into showing and other stuff but they are my heart breed and I'll always have at least one in my life.

Yorkshire Terrier - Even though mine is a mix, yes. I find myself looking at rescue and shelter pages quite often even if I can't get another dog for quite some time.

Great Dane - Oh heck yes! I'm waiting to adopt another senior someday. Such an amazing breed!

Well, I don't have a dog at the moment. A long time ago, I did have a dog. She was a Cocker Spaniel. If I could do all the right things now, like go to a breeder who health tested, and took my time, I would say yes. I would definitely own another cocker. Wasn't always that way, though. I was very anti Cocker for a while.

Miniature Schnauzers, Miniature Poodle, Charliedog... yes.
Toy Poodles are really too small for my liking and I don't see myself owning anything smaller than 12ish pounds in the foreseeable future.

I will also not own two terriers at the same time. Though by the time I'm due for another dog I'll most likely be entirely deaf .

The dane, of course I will likely always have a dane. The boxer however, NEVER ever will I own another one of them. They are just well not for me. I've had border collies in the past and would LOVE to own another one, husband's allergies prevents me from doing this though as he has a hard enough time with the short hair ones in the house.

Pembroke Welsh Corgi: Absolutely. I adore Muffin. I'd be very picky about who I bought from though, of course I will be with all my dogs from now on.

Jack Russell Terrier: Although I adored Walsh and I developed a love of the breed, the likely answer is no. I will always be a multi-dog household and with the tendency for DA and even just re-direction spats I don't see it being a good idea.

Collie: Absolutely! I miss Bailey so much! With them it's mainly a size issue, I likely won't consider one until I own my own home.

Keeda was a mix and I can only guess at what she was, so I don't have a breed to say one way or another. What I can say is that I think I am a herding dog girl, and will likely stick to herding breeds in the future.
