Default Are you a one breed person?

You'd think I am but I am really discovering I'm not. I don't think my perfect breed exists, actually. There are many breeds I like a lot and I honestly want to experience at least 4-5 of them (other than paps) in my lifetime. Each has unique characteristics I want to experience.

Who knows, maybe I'll get stuck on one. It's funny I had always envisioned myself as having papillons and then finding the perfect herding breed and just having those two breeds my whole life. I don't think it's going to work that way.

It's too bad I don't see myself with more than 3 dogs ever.

I'm the opposite of a one-breed person.

As in, my plans for the future and timing of dogs is partially geared toward never having just one breed at a time. I don't even want just one "type" at a time.

I love my eclectic house with my herder, terrier, and retriever. Nonstop hilarity. And that's not even counting the cat . Homogeneity is not for me.

I think I'm definitely a herding and sporting type person (the sporting type was actually kind of shocking to discover for me lol). But within the groups, I like a lot of the breeds. Especially the herders. There's tons of herding breeds I can see myself with and very happy with.

I've never even had more than one of the same breed or type of mix, ever. So no.

Although I may have been won over by Alaskans forever, we'll see if the timing and circumstances are right when the time comes for me to have another puppy.

I don't think so...I think when I envision in the future, I'm a 3-4 dog person, and the perfect ratio of that would be two herders (ACDs I think), a houndy type rescue dog (possibly senior or special needs), and possibly a sporting type breed...either Standard Poodle or English Setter. Rescue would be fine for the latter but you don't find purebred or a heavy cross in the shelters very much. That could always change though...

Nope, I love the variety. I love the hyper juxtaposed with the chill. My next dog will likely be a whippet and then another Malinois down the road.

Nah, I don't think so. I think the breeds might be similar is temperament, but I definitely want to try out some of the sporting breeds.

Sporting breeds FTW!

Really though gundog + herder = awesomeness (or some similar real word).

I think I will have that combination forever.

Most days I think yes, I'll just stick with Plotts... but some days I REALLY want a Patterdale, and I often think about adopting another Basset after Daisy.

When I am old I will have Frenchies & Pekes, but that is a long way off.
