I'm another undecided! I feel like I can't really say a breed that I haven't owned, and I've really only ever owned corgis in my adult life. And I know they aren't the breed for me, so I DON'T KNOW!!!

Chloe

But really I don't know. Whippets sound like the perfect breed for me, and will hopefully be my next dog, but since I haven't owned one, I don't know. If Whippets are the way I think they are (just a bigger version of Chloe ) then Whippets. (Shorthair AND Longhair)

If only they came with less floof! lol Merlin's light hair shedding on my mostly black wardrobe.. not cool haha
Someone should "invent" smooth Aussies!! (Or do they exist?)

I would say Izzies forever. She fits me like an old shoe and I adore her.

But since that's not possible...

I think i would have to say FCRs. I adore them and they can do almost everything I'd want to do (boo no herding) and they have a personality I love. I haven't had one yet but I've tried to drown myself in them and I came out wanting more.

Truly smooth aussies are not possible as smooth coat is a dominant trait in double coated breeds so in order for any offspring to be smooth coated at least one parent must also be smooth coated and Aussies are homozygous for longcoat gene.

Ignoring any health conditions (such as allergies or mange) that may cause hair loss in any dog, my Lark is as short coated as they come. What you see in these photos is a perfect outline of her body her coat lays slick against her body only her neck and britches have any considerable fluffy right now.




Tho she will probably gain a little more coat as she ages she will never be super fluffy.

If I could only ever own one breed, I'd have to say a Blackie. LOL Loyal, intelligent, biddable, large, short thick coat, protective, not overly barky, good with family animals, stable, confident, trustworthy, athletic, playful, loves to wrestle and be physical and food motivated/willing to please.

So, either a good Lab, a good Chessie, or possibly a good Rottie.

If I could find the right Lab breeder in my area, I'd say Labrador all the way.

I love Lark's coat actually. I have no idea if it's the desired Aussie coat but I'm a big fan of a tight weather-resistant coat with some trim. She's a pretty girl.
