Generally herding breeds. Prefer shortish, managable coat, prick ears, athletic build, moderate size, hard feet and intensity. Quinn is my complete ideal as far as type goes. She's just perfect. Kelpies is another big love for me.

If we're talking looks...

Lighter boned, athletic, lithe, well proportioned, nice tuck up, erect or semi erect ears (bigger the better), pointy muzzle with tight flews, feathered to lightly feathered coat preferred although I'm beginning to not mind short coats, tricolor, bicolor, or sable, full tail. Longhaired whippets, papillons, border collies, smooth pyr sheps (kept natural), belgians, Ibizans, salukis, etc.

But if we're talking TYPE like as in a group or family of dogs (shepherds, bullies, terriers, spaniels, nordic breeds, etc), it's definitely collies.

That particular blonde dog was at the same rescue centre one of my previous greyhounds came from Not cat friendly though

I'm also a tall skinny type.

Feral/wild types. Compact, but with leg and a tuck. Short, thick fur.

Dingo:


Certain herding breeds work, some ACDs (some are getting shorter), Buster isn't too bad (a presumed BC/ACD) as well as some nordic types, some huskies and malamutes, though again, show types are a bit worse in general.

I think I like terriers (big and small), either smooth coat or minor scruffiness (no beards please). But I've never actually owned one so I it's just a hunch from what I've read and seen from others' dogs. I like their enthusiasm for life, confidence, energy and athleticism, rough and tumble play style, alertness (which I didn't know I liked until yesterday), and playfulness.

I don't like frail looking terriers though, a lot of rat terriers on petfinder are too spindly looking, but they might be mixes or just poorly bred. Plus I don't like bat ears on small dogs.

Are they spaniels? I didn't know that!

Yup. The little red headed step child of the spaniel family but are most closely related to breeds like Cavalier King Charles Spaniels and English Toy Spaniels. The dropped eared variety look a lot more spaniel like.





There's probably some other types (I've always heard spitz) crossed in somewhere.

when i initially made a thread, i had certain 'types' in my head. then based on replies i changed what i was looking for

originally i meant types that are more like breeds. like Lurchers (best example i could think of) being generally a cross, but a specific type of cross. turned out to be harder to explain than i intended haha.

these are all interesting answers though! i like seeing what groups people end up being drawn to, for whatever reason.
