The breeds I would never own...
After these four Labs, I won't have a Lab again..
I saved three of the four from being euthanized and that was basically the only reason. They're good dogs, but we could find breeds that fit our lifestyle better.

Nor will I have an Afghan Hound, Chow Chow, Bichon Frise, Lhasa Apso, Shih Tzu, Chinese Crested, Toy Manchester Terrier, Italian Greyhound, Golden Retriever, Brittany, Poodle, Mexican Hairless, NEVER will I own a "Bulldog" or so called. I do not plan to own a Boston Terrier anytime in my life, but that may change. I may own a Chihuahua, but it's quite unlikely.

And I will never,
EVER,
EVER
own a Pekingese in my lifetime.

Any bully breeds, don't want to be persecuted and blocked from renting places to live.
Jack Russells , just too hyper for me.
Chihuahuas, I have one now...and I love him but they are terribly difficult dogs!
Bulldogs, health problems even though I love their personalities.

I think poodles would get a different rep if people didn't groom them as they did. Shave a poodle completely and what do you have? A 'normal' looking dog that doesn't shed and is smart as a whip! Who wouldn't want that? (Big poodles that is, small ones are different)

I said the exact same thing about a Lab. Oops.

I thought I had responded on this thread, can't seem to find it though...I will try again.

I would most likely never own a Chi or any very small dog like that. Nothing against them, but I do like something a little larger then that.

I would not look for a dog that needs constant trimming and/or clipping.

I would never actively look for an APBT or any of the Bully breeds.

I have to say i agree 100% with this! My poor boy looks like this at the moment because of bad allergies.

Honestly.....I would not ever "no offence" take home or even consider a poodle....I honestly don't understand the appeal of them......Every single one i have met has been out of control and didn't get along with any other dogs....and i heard they are very stubborn and hard train. I am sure that for some people they are the perfect dog but not for me........Anything else im up for.

I Also wanted to ask what was with alot you guys saying you wouldnt want a Lab or Retriever?!? I am sure i am being by-est But Honestly i have never met a lab with a bad attitude......When we brought Tater home he was "sitting" in 2 days on command.....They are super smart and All they want to do is please you......Easy to train and love......But i guess that is not for everyone.

HAVE A GOOD DAY ALL!

I am not going to say I will never own a particular breed because I know if I do, that is exactly the breed I will wind up with

I dunno, I would never want a lab either. I've actually HAD a lab before and yes, still don't want one. Nothing against them, but they just aren't the right fit for me temperament wise. I think that's what people need to remember about this thread. Everyone has preferences and things. Just because you can't/don't want to live with a breed doesn't mean you don't like the breed or something. I mean.... I like pit bulls fine enough but can't ever see myself actively looking for a pit bull for my next pet- they just don't fit my lifestyle well. Same goes for lots of breeds like labs, terriers in general and sight hounds (unfortunately).
