I am mostly German and Hungarian with some heritage coming from Great Britain. And since I live here, I am of course Canadian.

My top favourite breeds are Tollers, Koolies and Belgian Shepherds. One is Canadian, one is Australian (or German, depending on who you talk to) and the other is obviously Belgian.

I do like certain breeds of my heritage though. A lot of the working breeds that I like are German and I do like a nice Vizsla as well. I like a few breeds that originated from Great Britain also. Collies, Border Collies, and probably a handful more. And as far as Canadian breeds go, Tollers are the only one I have any real interest in. I do like Labs nowadays also, but probably not to own. The three breeds above are the only ones I have any real interest in owning at this point.

Meh, not really interested in Canadian dogs breeds or Scottish ones. There are some lovely breeds from both these countries but my interest is pretty much focused on middle eastern sight hounds

I am Eastern European, know nothing of the culture, but I do know all of the food!

And generally speaking, I do enjoy Eastern European breeds and Spitz breeds. I enjoy ranch/farm working dogs, too...but not as much as general working breeds that can do a bit of everything.

I suppose if you don't want to dig back that deep, then the breed is from the UK. But considering they got the original breeding stock from Canada, I consider them a canadian breed. They haven't even really changed that much from the "St. Johns' dog" anyway.

Well my father had a Hrvatski Ov***269;ar growing up (I have no idea what the breed is called in the United States or if it even exists outside Croatia). I like them: sprightly little dogs with a lot of character. But I'm definitely daunted by the idea of importing an animal...and I'm not tremendously keen on their looks.

Dalmatians are the only others I know are from Croatia and I can't stand them!

I like Canadian breeds, but I'm mostly drawn to mutts.

Well, for the most part I'm pure American. For American breeds, well anything that belongs to the herding group really, particularly sharing collie ancestry, not as much of a fan of Catahoulas though with them being more of a hound. If you want to get technical it's pretty complicated, my great grandparents from my mothers side are from Sicily, as far as Italian breeds I really don't know a enough. And then there's that rumor spread through the family about a dirty relationship to the royal family that we're probably related to the Queen, but since no one will talk, yeah, but if you want to go off that, I'm sure I don't have to say anything about that

Oh left out Canada lol - wasn't born here but indeed I am a proud citizen.

Labs I don't mind. I wouldn't own one but I don't mind them. Newfies... don't leave me with much of a impression; big silly dopey dogs. Tollers are inoffensive, really mild mannered and eager to please I've found.

And there is a type of feral sort of village dog from provincial Southern China that my grandparents did "employ" as guard dogs for their properties waaaay back when. I've only seen photos...they kinda look like dark colored dingos. Meh.

I think they're just called Croatian Sheepdogs. That's what I've always heard them called anyways.

houlas ARE NOT HOUNDS, they are cur dogs. a properly bred cur will naturally herd & hunt. they are related to the little cur in your pic.
