Favorite Dog Breed?

I am pretty certian I will be getting a dog when I finish college assuming I get a decent paying job so I thought I'd see what breeds you guys like.

Personally I like Boston Terriers pretty much for their size and personality. Although health problems that I read about appear to be annoying. A mix would be cool if it bred out some health problems. Also a smaller dog seems more affordable with smaller amount of food and so forth.

Anywho what breed do you like? If you have one pics are welcome.

If shedding, money, ethnicity and space were not issues, I'd get a

Labrador
Alaskan Husky
American Bulldog
Most types of retrievers
Samoyed
Any type of mastiff

Some muts are usually really cute too and they're interracial, so they will be more down to earth than other dogs, like a ******* poodle. I'd probably end up getting a mut when I move out so it doeshn't has to die.

Oh, I would also want a dingo, those are badasses.

Labrador Retrievers. They are the best. I do love German Shepherds and Rottweilers too though. I would take any of those three. As far as small dogs go I love chihuahuas!! lol i know gay right? but my friends rescue them and have a whole house full and it is insane! They have so much personality in a tiny package.

I've got a 1.5 y/o Bantam British Bulldog named Rampage. At 30 Lbs he's a handfull. He's very healthy and doesn't have any of the usual problems that Boston Terriers or other mastif breeds (Bulls, Boxers, etc) get -- cherry eye, corkscrew tails, ear/skin infections, bad hips, etc.

Don't get a small dog if you don't want to deal with non-stop energy, and don't get a pure breed if you can't afford the potential medical costs.

Muts are the way to go.

This is true as well. I have one and he is the best dog you could ask for.

I have a Boston Terrier named Jiggz. He's awesome and Cock-eyed. He's healthy and has an awesome personality. I also REALLY like Jack Russell Terriers. I had one and it was the most intelligent adaptable and loving dog I've ever had.

But yeah, Boston Terriers are great.
In fact, I'm gonna take a pic and post it real quick



My Next dog will be one of the following:

Canis Panther


Or Dogo Argentino (Leaning toward this one)


Thanks to
