Default My breeds

SO just for the fun of it lets see what dog breeds would be good future dogs (when I'm moved out and living on my own). I'll be getting shelter dogs but you see many dogs that are pure or close to it in shelters so even if it's a mix I want to know what breed mixes I might like.

I like active dogs, ones who like to play and will hike with me.

I don't care if he can guard or even bark to warn me

I want a friendly dog who likes people, they don't have to make immediate friends with strangers but I don't want them to be hostile towards people I allow in.

I plan on having more than one dog.

I will have cats (the same I have now assuming they are still alive).

They need to be good with kids.

I don't mind heavy shedding or the need for professional grooming but I don't like the long hair (Shih-Tzu type hair, old engish sheepdog hair etc.) (I don't like hair in their faces).

I'd like to have a large fenced in yard.

I like large dogs, I'll take anything 40 pounds and up.

if you need more info I'll give it to you. Try to think outside the box, do a bit of research for me into less common breeds (include the common ones too though).

I'd love to know what you think.

They were my favorite breed for the longest time, they might still be but I have to learn more about that before I can say for sure.

Labrador Retriever!

Very active, love to hike and always up for playing. Excellent with kids, cats and other dogs. Good with strangers. Shed but require little grooming.

A Boxer?

In my experience the ones that are properly bred are active, friendly, and great with kids and other dogs. Of course, I've seen really badly bred ones that are none of these things. But they can be really great.

So far I like what I hear. I like Aussies, Boxers, labs and don't know a thing about Dobies I'll have to look into them more.

My cousin had a Boxer but he died when he was five. She called him for a treat and he came walking in then just dropped dead. The vet said he had a brain aneurysm.

my thought was also a boxer--but there are other dogs, higher energy--Viszla, Weirmeraners, greyhound just to name a few.
