Well I just look up the breeds of Poland and quite like the Polish Tatra sheepdog and the polish hunting dog looks like something I'd be drawn to if I saw it in a pound.

My moms side is Indian(American) and from Europe somewhere. I know it's not Germany but my love for the dobe came from somewhere lol!

No sorry, nothing to do with "character" or "Temperament", just stating the fact about how they look, too houndy for me, sorry for the confusion, but no they are by far not related to my guy in anyway, but if you mean the girl in my siggy, why yes I do know that story and most people speculate that's where they got their "spots".

in the January 2001 issue of Full Cry, David Carr wrote an amazingly detailed entymology of the word cur in literary english. the word originally comes from the celtic languages of britain & ireland (when written in latin alphabet the welsh is usually kyr or cyr and the irish is cu but all are pronounced cur). corgi in english is a corruption of cur gu, which translates to little cur. the curs in the USA are not pure descendants of the british & irish curs the colonists brought over (yes many mt cur enthusiasts will make this claim). but they are descendants, so are the stumpy & queensland heelers, by way of the smithfield (vairously claimed to be either a cur or a curXcollie). by the time the word cur enters the written english language it means a specific type of dog kept by the celtic commoners to herd stock (especially cattle but also swine & equines) AND to steal game & fur by silent tracking and baying, treeing or killing depending on the game.
now the houla, the red wolf claims are mostly nonsense, the houla truely originates by the anglo-celtic pioneers crossing their curs w/ the french equivalent that we know as beauceron (historically a strong hunter & cattle herder). so while distant the relationship is there.

the american eskimo is one of the original doodles. it was created mostly from the pomeranian, hence germanic breed.

I always wondered about that.

*sigh* "Cur and Ci, Ci being the Welsh name for Dog somewhere along the way getting changed to Gi"
It's pronounced like "Key".

And no, that still does not make them related by BLOOD. Name, "work style", and "group type", sure, but I'm truly plain and simple a Collie/Shepherd person, so that is the kind of dog overall I prefer, plain and simple. Yes, I do find myself attracted to the Akita inu by looks, sure, but would I own one? Absolutely not, so no I don't really like them as a breed either because I know they don't suite my life style. Same with Catahoula's, overall, I don't find them as attractive personally, doesn't mean I don't like them in ways, they're just not my style.

And to keep on the subject, of other American breeds;
*American Bulldogs - No, not my kind of dog at all!
*Am Staffs - No, again not my kind of dog
*Coonhounds (to many varieties to remember them all) - Most certainly not, way beyond my kind of dog
*American water spaniel - Again, not my kind of dog, although I admire the water dogs more so than other hunting breeds
*Chessie - No again
*Blue lacy - Oh! another of these "stock dogs in a hound suite", no thanks although they sound a little more "fun" to me as a smaller breed
*Boston terrier - Oh I love these guys! But wouldn't own one, to...gassy
*Alaskan Klee Kai - These I do really like, fun breed, but I don't think I'll ever own one, just a big dog preference
*Australian shepherd - I would possible own one, someday when I have the time for grooming, or rescue a less dense coated individual.
*English shepherd - Again with the coat, but I think I'd go for one over an Aussie actually, they remind me more of my preferred "Farm collie" dog
*Mini American shepherd - eh, it's a tough one, I wouldn't be opposed to taking in a rescue, but I wouldn't go out of my way to buy one! And again I do prefer larger dogs, so for now no.
*Feist - No, to much "terrier" for my liking!
*Rat terrier - Again, not really a breed I would consider owner

Out of the breeds that originated in England/Ireland/Scotland/Wales, the ones I would possibly maybe own are:
Border Collie
English Cocker
English Springer Spaniel
Sheltie
Welsh Springer Spaniel
Whippet

Apparently, I was supposed to be born in Scandinavia, however, as all of the dog breeds I love originated from there
