Hello everyone, I have looked and looked and found a few compatible breeds
Austrailan Shepherd-I love these dogs they have this puppy forever personality not to mention a great size.
Boston terrier-I am not sure I keep getting recomended them they appeal to me but they seem sort no sit still
Papillon-well they have a great look little hair can go anywhere,smart
Staffy-well I love bully breeds they are clowns,gentle short hair

So do you think these breeds fit me?

I really think going to an all breed rescue and getting the DOG who fits your lifestyle (not breed) is going to be your best bet. The dog's you're suggesting all vary wildly with their temperaments and traits, in general. There are individuals who vary, of course, which is why meeting individual dogs seems like the best fit.

Bully breeds tend to be dog aggressive. Are you prepared to deal with that?

I have a shelter mutt, and we take agility classes together. We can't compete in AKC agility or dog shows, as she's not registered in any breed, but there are plenty of ways to train and play with your dog that don't require kennel club registration.

You seem to be all over the place with your breed choices. I worry that you're picking them based on one or two traits you like. For me personally, there isn't a single breed that has every trait I like in a dog. I could never say, "My breed is xyz" and be happy with every dog in that breed. I think you'll be MUCH better picking out a specific dog from a rescue based on its personality and disposition, without reading anything too in depth about it's breed(s) (especially since a lot of rescues are mixes where their breeds are just guesses anyway.

You can do almost anything you could ever want.

Agility for all breeds and mixes includes NADAC, USDAA, CPE, DOCNA and as of next year AKC (though it is up to a club to decide if they will offer classes for all breeds) and if you have an under 16" dog TDAA.

All breed rally- APDT, though hopefully AKC clubs wil offer mixed breed classes too.

AMBOR offers all breed obedience, though AKC may be a soon option depending upon the show.

Flyball doesn't care about breeds..

In Canada we have a few more options.. but there should be more than enough if you wish to get a mixed breed dog. In the end it is your choice though. I prefer the hopeful predictability of getting a specific breed, though that can be a bit of a toss up too.
