PyrSheps were not love at first sight (or meeting) for me but I'm totally smitten with them now. Corgis - never really liked the dwarf breed look but now I think they're cute...not to mention funny.

Maltese, Clumber Spaniel, IG, borzoi, are all breeds I'd like to own at some point that are fairly new desires.

If I ever get to the point where I want to get a working line dog it'll be a laek. I love their scruffies.

I used to really want a German Shepherd, but now after dealing with so many at my work I'm unsure. Maybe I'm just meeting bad examples of the breed.

Another one I used to really want is a toller. It's not that I don't want one now, but I'm not sure if I would actually want one bad enough to get one if that makes sense.

When I was a kid I always wanted borzois or greyhounds.

I read about Tibetan mastiffs and thought, "I'm NEVER going to get one of those! Too hard!"

And now I'm pining after kuvasz, filas, and TM.

Based on the Border collie we had when I was a kid, I used to think I never wanted one. She was out of control, chewed on everything, herded everything, and we spent all winter chasing her down when she ran off. As it turns out, I LOVE the breed. Our girl was just undersocialized (we got her at 3 months old and she had been tied to a dog house for a month), underexercised (my Mom wanted a lap dog and my Aunt dumped this one on us), and totally untrained.

But I love training dogs, love doing agility, and love taking walks and hikes. I decided a couple years ago that BCs are really the breed I'd like to own someday.

Oops I read this thread so wrong and thought it was about dogs we used to want to own but don't anymore.

I never used to think I would want a sighthound. I was strictly herding breeds for the longest time. Now I'm super obsessed with all things sighthound. So... ibizans, greyhounds, salukis, Afghan Hounds, Galgo, Borzoi etc.... Love love love. I really want a greyhound and a borzoi one day.

Chihuahuas and Sighthounds.
Chihuahuas, I used to think were snobbish and ugly, but now I have grown to love their small size. I'll still always be scared that I'll sit on them, lol.

Sighthounds, I used to think they were 'fragile' and too 'aloof'. But I've grown to love their grace and beauty, and I absolutely love their temperament. I definitely plan on owning at least one in my lifetime.

I NEVER wanted a Malinois. In fact, when I first met my husband, he made the joke that if I ever decided to work a Malinois, he would have to leave me. :P

Now we both have them.
