I have English, German, French, and Scots-Irish in me, and I'm American. So I can't really narrow it down that much
The way I see it, every life is a pile of good things and bad things. The good things don't always soften the bad things, but vice-versa, the bad things don't necessarily spoil the good things and make them unimportant.

I am right there with you! lol

I am Scandinavian. While I do like old breeds, and some of the Nordic Spitz are appealing to me... I've never found myself in their midst. Probably because coated breeds just aren't well suited for my lifestyle.

I'm American with primarily Irish, English, Welsh heritage (roughly 75%) with a Jewish (heritage) great-grandfather and some Native American, Russian, and French thrown in. So... American Cocker Spaniel lines up with my primary heritage, kind of, maybe. My dog is half of that.

Other dogs I'd consider:

Australian Shepherd
Boston Terrier
Boykin Spaniel
McNab (dog) (love!!!!)
Silken Windhound

English springer (dog is half that)
Border Collie
English Cocker Spaniel
English Springer Spaniel
Field Spaniel
French Bulldog
Sussex Spaniel

Cardigan corgi (kind of want one, anyway).
Welsh Springer Spaniel

I love Irish setters, but they are a little too big for me, though I might still get one, someday. Irish wolfhounds I love, but they are HUGE! English setters are again a little too big, but I love them.

I'm basically an all-American mutt, and a lot of American breeds are ones I would consider, depending on my circumstances at the time: Aussies, English Shepherds, American Bulldogs (although I'm really picky about the type), Silken Windhounds, AmStaffs, Blue Lacys...

Although I'm mainly just a mutt of mutts, my grandma's grandparents (so my great-great-grandparents?) were from Mexico. I don't know much about Xolos since I'm not a hairless fan although maybe I should learn more about the coated variety. I enjoy a Chihuahua with the proper temperament but could never own one, just way too tiny for me.

I like Labs and Tollers and Newfoundlands. I'll probably own a Toller one day.

I've never met a Canadian Eskimo Dog, though they seem neat enough.

Seamus and Paris

& Sally, never forgotten.

I love cane corsos and neopolitan mastiffs.
