If you give a quick description of yourself, the person has to say what breed you are!

I would be a soft, huge dog, who is unaware of how big I am. I would shed A LOT. I would be hyperactive, and would need a lot of exercise. I would like certain people, and be very wary of strangers. I would also be scared easily!

I would be a chow...fiercely loyal and unconditional towards the few I love, wary of strangers. Somewhat a clown at times. Quiet, distant, soft, inactive, hard to read, alert when need be, pretend I don't love someone more than I do, but give them those 'moments' that are so great in gesture, they make up for the times you don't. Misunderstood, disliked/assumptions, but seen as more by those who just take the time to really look.

A Fila. HUGE. Kinda cute in a drooly, mastiff-ey way. A moderately socialized Fila - maybe okay for taking places and leaving in the car, but a little on the "lunge first, ask questions later" side.

I disagree with this. I think appearance-wise you're more of an Irish Setter, gorgeous but also capable of derp.

I'd be some sort of herding breed, I think... smart but not always easy to handle, not typically very social but very bonded to "my people", always needs to be busy/doesn't handle idleness well, prone to being anywhere from a little neurotic and reactive to having more serious issues. I'm just not sure *which* breed. Working-line Aussie, maybe? Kelpie?

During my "good times" I think I'm kind of like a Toller. Still prone to being a little weird, but with some of that retriever bounce and fun.

I vote Toller, personally. I can see that.

Also I'm leaving you with this.

I am very active and need plenty of exercise every day, but settle well in the house. Smart and pick up things very easily. I am a rule follower and need a job. Very eager to please but have the capacity for great stubbornness if pushed in the wrong way, and can shut down if pushed outside of comfort zone too quickly. Bond strongly to a few individuals but am slow to warm up to strangers. Not reactive in the slightest; very even keel most of the time.

I'd say definitely a herding breed. Maybe an ACD?

I am basically my dog, except he is more social than I am and less stubborn. So pretty much a better version of me :rofl1:

Something lazy and reserved with strangers. Might work for food. :p

I'm like the exact opposite of the type of dogs I own/like.

I once took a quiz version of this and it came back with OES and said something like "energetic and a lot of fun, but a little exuberant for some people", which is pretty spot on. So I'll say Old English Sheepdog.

A poorly socialized, slightly nervy German Shepherd. Companionable with people I know, but entirely uninterested in making new friends. Easily motivated by things I like (toys, food, and games) and wants to bite things I do not like.

I'd probably be something akin to a Curly Coated Retriever or similar breed.

Politely reserved with people I don't know, loud and boisterous with my family and friends. Happy to hang out all day, but in need of mental stimulation or I can't settle. No desire to really socialize outside of "my group". Will work for food (OMNOMNOM) and for the approval of loved ones. Trainable, but with a stubborn streak. Need force free training or I shut down. Not prone to aggression, although won't hesitate to bark (and potentially back it up with a bite if pressured) if my territory/people are threatened. Not sound sensitive, but prone to some anxiety. Wash and wear coat, minimal upkeep required, although there is heavy shedding.

And I have dark, thick hair, so definitely not a flashy breed. haha

So I came to post something, but this basically describes me, so there :p

I'd probably be a poorly bred, neurotic border collie. Anxious, flighty, and anti-social.

I have no idea what I would be! Probably a mixed breed lol. Maybe a herder mix because of the sensitive-ness and "barky-ness".

Something that is loyal to a fault to her family, sometimes a pushover until I'm not. My bark is worse than my bite. Sensitive. Good in calm environments. Low energy, but will go if I have to. Reserved with strangers, uncomfortable in large groups but great with those in the "inner circle". Good with other animals. Food and praise motivated. Balks at negativity. A talker. Low maintenance appearance, but needs high quality kibble for allergies. Doesn't wander (lol). I am the type that you tell once and make a rule to myself never to do it again so you won't get mad.

I'd be some kind of herder. Closely bonded with "my" people, polite but not overly social or outgoing with strangers, some anxiety/quirks, likes to hike and swim but happy to stay at home on the farm for the most part. Bonds closely with stock. Active but has a good off switch too. A nice balance of independent and biddable - but if I think you're being foolish I'll make my own decisions. Silly moments but overall pretty stoic.

I think I just described Quinn, give or take, haha! So I guess I'd be an ES or a farm bred BC.

My guess would be some kind of primitive-type dog with herding tendencies, like a Canaan dog. Cautious and self-preservational to the point of shyness and hypervigilance (at least in unfamiliar situations), highly independent and aloof but capable of being protective, intelligent and can excel in a variety of things but leans toward being un-biddable, self-motivated, circumstantially quite vocal, sometimes bossy, reacts badly to being strong-armed, occasionally may pick fights, can handle and enjoys a lot of activity but may remain stationary for long periods, prone to wandering.

When I put it that way it makes me sound horrible but it does seem right. :rofl1:
