Honestly, I can't think of anything. I plan on having multiple dogs to fulfill multiple purposes, and I don't have a "breed." I much prefer mutts and the surprises they offer

Oh yeah, and any dog the size of a horse! j/k, but yes, any dog of hugely proportionate size, anything that weighs more than myself! And nothing bellow my ankle, or that fits perfectly under my foot.

Dog aggression: been there done that. Never want to do it again. Any breed that I would have to worry about not being able to walk in the city or would have to crate and rotate with the others is off of the list
Tolerant of strangers- I live in the city right now so I need a dog who is able to walk past strangers of all shapes and sizes on the sidewalk.
Serious- I am not a fan of really derpy goofy dogs. A dog with a sense of humor is good though
Size: I want a dog that I can physically control/lift if need be.
One person dogs: I prefer a dog that loves me more than everyone else and is not throwing themselves at everyone for attention
Energetic: I need a dog that wants to go on adventures with me and is built to do so.
Not brachycephalic: I worry about them in the heat.
Attractive: I like a dog a find appealing.
Smart/biddable: I do not claim to be a fantastic dog trainer, I need a dog who is smart enough and willing to please enough that they can work with me.
Off switch: I need a dog that is not going to go batty in the house or if I have to skip their run for a day.

That actually might be one of the top things for me. I don't know why it bothers me but it does. One of the first things I do when looking at a breed is look on youtube and try to see how fast they typically move/react.

- DA is a main one. Not something I want to deal with.
- Heartbreak breeds. Don't want to deal with that at all.
- Curly hair- texture issue for me. I dislike the feel of poodle hair immensely. I can't tell you why
- Dogs that require clipping or professional grooming
- Anything over Aussie/Belgian in size (even those are pushing it)
- wrinkles
- extreme brachycephaly
- drooling (ick)
- super independent breeds. Nothing about that type of personality appeals to me

I used to say beards but then I am now looking at a breed that sometimes comes with a beard. Originally I said it would HAVE to be a smooth but now I'm starting to like the scruffy look just as much.

Sorry, you don't know the back story and I don't mean to tick you off for that. He was inherited from family, shortly before his owners died, morbidly obese. All he does all day is sleep under a blanket on the sofa, well he looks like one so I call him a slug, it's a joke. I also call him Stinky Mushroom, it's kind of funny when he "sprouts", lol. Here's a picture:

Essentially though, he isn't mine. The two in my sig are mine. Oh, here's another pic, doesn't he kind of look like a slug? (we're still working on his weight, and the odor problem, he stinks like nothing you could ever imagine)

I am sorry you lost 3 dogs. That is very sad. However I don't think their post had anything to do with you or your dogs.


That fat slug is adorable, I would use it as a pillow. LOL
