I'm American and I love the American pit bull terrier as well as the deckers line rat terriers but not for any patriotic reason.

My mother is italian and my father is Lithuanian but I've never been drawn to a breed from their countries either.

I love my boyfriend who is Irish but I'll never own another wheaten terrier.

I'm Canadian and Asian.

I don't care for the Asian breeds like chows, Peis, Tzus, etc. either.

Canada..hmm Tollers, Newfies? I like Tollers, am indifferent to Newfies. Too big, too much drool and hair.

I love Papillons and BCs, so French and English?

I'm Korean. I LOVE the look of Asian dogs. I'd even go far as to say I think they are some of the nicest/prettiest/handsomest looking dog breeds.

I personally love mutts though. I'll always be a mutt fan they aren't limited to one country though
Thank you Vivien and Angel Chicken for the siggy! Also I have been frosted!!! And as of 9/13/07 I know the secret handshake!

Canada has some pretty cool breeds that came from here. None of them are breeds I am into though.

OFA Hips: Good, Eyes: Normal
2010 & 2015 UKC Coonhound World Show Qualified

Hermmm... not really sure. Really mixed, and I like a lot of different breeds. I own an eastern European breed and am seriously considering a kuvasz, TM or something along those lines and they are a couple of the few ethnicities NOT in my background, lol.

Although, Greece was the portal for sighthounds to get into the rest of Europe so maybe that counts.

ETA: Not really a fan of most American breeds in terms of owning them, except the American staghound.

As for dogs from Scotland, they are mostly a miss. I'm not too sure on all of them, but there's the scottish deerhound, scottish terrier, Shetlie and collie, border terriers, border collies???, and the westie. I'm sure I'm missing some more, but those are the ones I can recall from my memory.

I'd own a Border Terrier out of the bunch. I do love border collies but at this time I have no intention on going out to get one. If it was the right dog, sure.
i thought labs were created in britain from the lesser st johns waterdog. i know the AKC in the 1920s considered them a short coat variety of the british breed Retreiver (flat & curly were the other varieties).

I don't like most either for this reason. I just do not like their personalities/temperaments. There are of course exceptions. Also, I have a soft spot for Pekingese because my family has always had them.

I'm definitely born to love corgis though. =P

according to the Rev. Jackson's research Johanes (Jonathon) Plott did NOT have any dogs w/ him when he got off the boat in the NE. However after his trip down the Cumberland Road through the Scots-Irish highland communities of western VA, he arrived in NC with several dogs. So the Plott like many Americans are of obscure/unknown ancestry but still outstanding performers.

i like the Plott & most purely american breeds in part because (like me) their ancestry isn't 100% certain and 100% pure anything but 100% American performance at unforgiving jobs in sometimes unforgiving environments.
