Default Superficial Reasons You Would Own a Breed

My secret superficial want is one of those puppymill rescue cresteds that look like goblins. Because goblins.

Either that or a well bred hairy hairless, because my little pony dog.

Or standard poodle so I could groom it to look like a tiny camel. TINY CAMEL.

Xolo. Because they look cool. Duh.

Sighthounds. I like reliability off leash. I have small dogs. I have chickens. I don't like thin, easily torn skin. I don't like the long toes. But holy freaking stunning.

Bull Terriers. I just think they are adorable/handsome. That head. Such a bad match for me.

Also anything really tall...Danes and Irish Wolfhounds. Love the size, I don't know why, but they don't suit me well either.

Terrible match for me, but I love boxers. I love their crazy butt wiggles, and big wide happy faces.

I love poodles because they're all I've ever had, and I'm scared to change! I also enjoy giving them fun haircuts.

I love merle and brindle patterning, and have to resist getting dogs just because of that.

Any dog that swims. I will take it. I want a swimmer so badly.

Border Collies with really pretty, balanced markings and a nice lean agility structure. I will pick a breeder with structure and looks in mind (as well as everything else), because there are some homely BCs out there.
Oh and I got Rigby entirely 100% based on her ears. I did not care what her problems were, I needed the ears.

As for dogs I wouldn't own but think they're pretty...

Dobermans so sleek and shiny, with nice structure and cropped ears. And Pharaoh Hounds.
teh prettiness.

A pinto American Akita. Because they look awesome. If they could be household animal friendly (pocket pets/livestock included), strange dog polite, and polite with strangers (both on and off the property), I totally wouldn't turn one down. I actually kind of wish they were more suited for me, because I bet that would be a breed DH and I could agree on.

Most Mastiffs type breeds. I've come to the conclusion that a giant dog that drools and isn't the most athletic animal I'm the world, with DA/HA tendencies, would be a horrible fit. But I love them anyway and if someone said, "take this mastiff puppy!" I wouldn't be able to walk away. Lol

And I totally must have a dog that likes to retrieve and likes to swim. Cynder does neither and she is boring. At the very least, a dog that likes to swim/play in water is needed for the ultimate dog experience.

Bullmastiffs and Rottweilers. I've seen some lean, functional looking ones and they're just so pretty! And totally the wrong dog for me.
