Mine hasn't changed much at all.

Previous list:
1) Border Collie
2) Border Staffy
3) Staffy
5) Random Scruffy Mutt
6) Lundehund

I couldn't even get to ten last time, and I'm not sure I could now. The top two would stay the same; I still would love a Staffy some day, but BSL worries me with the amount I travel with my dogs. Small dogs interest me more lately; there's a few toy breeds like Paps or some of the small terriers that seem to be drawing my eye. But random mutts are really the most likely for me forever. Who wouldn't want a Gusto? (okay, most sane people)

Well, this was my last answer

Id say though... And this is in no real order, and mainly admiration over really wanting to own...

German shorthaired pointer (like duh... I can see me owning them a long time)

German wire haired pointer (easy, oh hates wire haired dogs though)

Setters. Any variety. I like their look. Especially English and Gordon.

Giant schnauzer. Fun bouncy dogs.

Boxers (always wanted one growing up)

Mutts comprising most of the above, and collie or bully. Smooth coated, athletic but solid.

Aussies (because of merlin and journey, but I don't do fluffy)

Collie, had one growing up, known a fair few, and they're great companions

JRT, but I'd never own one.

This is hard!!!!!! And it will change tomorrow.....

1) Australian Shepherd (my next dog will very likely be an Aussie)

2) Belgian Malinois

3) Papillon

4) Border Collie

5) Working line German Shepherd

I think when I'm old, Papillons will probably be my "go to" dog, but I'd like to think Cali will live forever as of right now. I think I'll only ever be a one to two dog household though, so it'll be Cali and an Aussie... but I may get another Papillon as well. I like the idea of Cali having a playmate her size to play with all the time.

The two and a half year old papillon. Crazy. Social butterfly. Clever.

Don't know if I can come up with 10, but I will try.

1. Finnish Spitz (obviously!):

2. Norwegian Buhund:

3. Shikoku (would have to speak to breeders first):

4. Papillon (if I ever went smaller):

5. Swedish Vallhund (would have to speak to breeders/meet more):

Ummm... That's about it right now, TBH!

Thanks meepitsmeagan for the siggy!

I don't really have a top ten!
I like fun, interactive, athletic dogs and I don't think I ever want to raise a puppy again - so it makes it easier to find the kind of dog I like.

I used to think Jack was the perfect size at 45 lbs, but I'm kind of loving Crossbone's 22 lbs size. I'll hopefully have C-bone for a very long time, and he'll be an only dog as long as we live in our 750 sq ft house!

I used to want big dogs: Field Labs, Standard Poodle, Aussie, etc

But now I could see myself with a MINI ACDS (haha), Chinese Crested, Papillon, Mini Poodle, Chihuahua, etc.

I didn't post last time this thread was around, and I wish I had now. Here's a list from today. The first three and the last two are in order. The others are just sort of jumbled up.

1. Dutch Shepherd. Maybe a blue one lol

2. Alaskan Noble Companion Dog

3. Collie. Just like this one.

4. Koolie. I like this guy, but know nothing about his kennel.

5. Field bred Golden

6. Fox Red Labradork

7. Flatcoated Retriever

8. Belgian Malinois (huge maybe.)

9. Longhaired Whippet. Unlikely, but maybe when we're old lol

10. Leonberger. This will never happen, but I like to dream lol.

Except #1, not in any obvious order. All are breeds that I've at least considered in passing as a future dog. But I WANT a eurasier so badly.

1) Eurasier

2) Bernese Mountain dog

3) Australian Shepherd

4) Newfoundland

5) Spinone Italiano

6) Greyhound

7) Alaskan Noble Companion dog

8) English Shepherd

9) A good old Fashioned mutt

no tenth at the moment.

All are quite different, but they all share some of the qualities that I would love to have in a dog. Good natured, not off the wall but happy to get up and go, low(ish) barking (with a possible exception to the aussie and I don't know about the ANCD),medium or large size, ability to coexist with small animals/other dogs, generally non-aggressive, a bit gentler and "softer" than your average Labrador, not so stubborn as a terrier (greyhound might be an exception)...

The first six are in no particular order:

1.) Belgian Malinois
2.) Australian Kelpie (veeery picky on which ones I like)
3.) Border Collie
4.) Dutch Shepherd
5.) Whippet (both smooth and long)
6.) Pitties
7.) Dogo Argentino
8.) Beauceron
9.) Anatolian Shepherd
10.) Australian Shepherd

The last four rotate between those breeds, FCRs, JRTs, Dobermans, American Foxhounds (which I adore but I'm not sure I'll own again - who could live up to the fabulousness that is Copper?), Australian Koolie, Cane Corso, Salukis, Ibizan Hounds, Weims, GSPs, Border Terriers.

I very much enjoyed a Toller I lived with, but he was sooo far from the breed standard. I don't particularly like most other Tollers I've seen.

Wouldn't necessarily own some of them, but it's the breeds you're interested in, not that you'd own
