I never actually know what kind of dog I want, and I waffle heavily on where it'll come from (rescue/breeder/rehome/other?). But I'm curious about what other breeds people think may fit me based purely on cosmetics, ahahaha.

Wants
30-50 pound average
"sturdy"
drop ears
medium (lab is considered medium--I don't want GSP short) to long hair

Don't Wants
drooly
brachycephalic
dwarf
facial hair

Sounds like a springer. ;)

Also small lab or golden. Toller. Brittany or French Brittany. Large Cocker spaniel? Field Spaniel. Pretty much spaniel sounding.

I was gonna say that sounds pretty Spaniel-ly or small retriever.

OR

Beagle :D

Yeah, this.

Kind of random, but Polish Lowland Sheepdog fits. I met a couple last week and they were adorable, but lots of hair to care for.

Hmmm.... I had to think really hard on this.... But I think the best answer is Springer. ;)

Seriously though, based on cosmetics you already sound like a spaniel person. HaHa.

Haha, in the past I've seriously considered most of the dogs listed!

NSDTR-still wishy washy
English Shepherd-still wishy washy
Goldens/Labs-have very seriously looked at, like I was looking at a Golden litter last night
Other spaniel types-I like them but I don't know the lines as well

I would take Middie in a heart beat!

I don't think I'd love a Beagle. I like a quieter dog, haha.

French Brittanys have intrigued me for a while now. I actually convinced someone to get one recently (instead of a variety of other leisure hunting dogs). I have to say that I LOVE the black tri/roany colored dogs. LOVE THEM.

And I've honestly never looked twice at a Powlish Lowland Sheepdog! Now I want to go look!

Golden Golden Golden!

Because I want one. And I won't be adding another dog for (hopefully) quite a while. So then you can help me get my Golden fix.

Or a Cocker Spaniel. Because they're awesome.
