Default What is your secret breed?

The breed you would love to own, that may surprise people? Something not your traditional want maybe, or something you haven't mentioned before? etc.

I am a hound person, and my favourite breeds are all sighthounds. But my secret breed would be Springer Spaniels. Nothing like sighthounds, but I absolutely love them, and would definitely like to own at least one.

I've always wanted an Ibizan Hound.


Not really the typical working dog breed I like, but hey, they're awesome!

Dobermans

I am very often pegged as a toy breed or retriever person lol which I can see why.

but these dogs are really on my "One day.." list. Unfortunately my life just isn't very well suited (renting apartments and all..breed restrictions) for one of these dogs.

In fact, before I was matched with goldens as a service dog, dobermans were my #1 choice. they only were eliminated because of my apartment buildings new management and rules :/

but yea, people often think that I'm more suited for "softer" dogs or something lol so I guess its kind of a secret!

I will never ever own one, but: we had an afghan hound at work yesterday, first time I've ever seen one. And holy cow are they way better looking in person than in pictures. It would make me feel so elegant to have one lol but I couldn't handle the hair. I find them so intriguing now though.

I pine for a Dutch Shepherd. I knew a Dutchie once. She was awesome. Likely I won't own this breed though, it probably wouldn't really fit my lifestyle.

A lurcher. I generally love hounds...from a distance. I don't think I could cope with never being able to let a hound off it's lead but these are definitely on the list for when I get my smallholding.
