My dogs are like this. Border Collies are their favorites.

Eve tends to get lip-lifty with new, pushy dogs at first, but she's always been okay with every Border Collie she's met, despite their behavior.

Our Newf's love other Newf's the male HATES other male Newf's as they are competition. Our Newf's love all other dogs, my Dobe mix loves all other dogs, my Rottweiler loves Shepherds, Lab's, Newf's but she gets very aggressive towards other Rotties.

For myself I believe it's what the pup imprinted on during the critical period of socialization. You may find dogs from big breeders who don't get their pups out in the "real" world these pups may find comfort in their own breed as they imprinted so only on their litter mates and Mom.

I don't know if this has been posted, but do you think it could have anything to do with the dog being raised with their littermates (of a similar breed to that dog.)

You never know how strong you are until strength is the only option you have left.

I will go you one further S& red Beagles always prefer to be with other Red's if given a choice...and my Tri's...with other Tri's. When I had a litter of 2 red and one tri girls...the 2 reds almost NEVER interacted with their sister...I always felt rather bad for her.
Oh so its NOT just my beagles! haha. I always tell people I got Kody when I lived in an apartment so I requested a "stackable" dog lol. I have noticed when I bring the beegs to the dog park if there are others, they all group up. Sometimes they even bring in a bassett or two. Until they see how long his ears are and then they SHUN him! Just kidding.

She's much more reserved around most other dogs.
My dobes have always recognized and acknowledged their own breed. Ilsa loved other dobes, Ronin loves all female dobes, and Kaylee gets all moon eyed and giddy around others of her own breed.

Morado Dobermans... and Talla the Mexidog too! (group photo pending)

My guys all love each other, and I definitely see a connection between all my dachshunds, and between my beagles Bo and Katie, and especially Bo and Sam who is a beagle mix. Not so much between my Shih Tzu's, but Denver (foster pittie) and Blue have a very special bond, they absolutely adore each other.

No idea why they like their own breeds or how they recognize them, but it's something I've definitely noticed.
