Well, I liked mix-breeds like Collie Husky mix. I had border collie as a pet---- Not recommended they get seizures and must be run like 40 min 3 times a day. They are best on the farm and many get put down since people cannot handle them.

Please do your research before buying a dog or pet. we bought Toby who lived 15 years and died of old age. I will miss him.

I thought you might add pit bulls, boxers and bull dogs since they're good breeds... Well bull dogs are like us. Lazy all around but likes to cuddle like many people. Pit bulls doesn't get enough love as they should be. Pits are very protective of their owners like Boxers. Boxers are by far most beautiful creature! Had one who passed away over a year ago, now we have another one. Anyway, thy are all beautiful animals anyway depending on their characteristics and skills. <3

In my time I have had 3 great dogs, only 1 are on your list, that's the Ridgeback. His name was RIDGE. Then a Wiermariner, his name was Cozzie. Now I have a Staffordshire Bull Terrier, named Ghost. Had them all since puppies .
Ghost is the best so far, very loyal and loving , and as meek as a Hindu Cow.
Merry Christmas

How could you leave out the Border Collie? They in my opinion are the best dogs around. My first pet dog was a Border Collie cross, and he was the best. Very smart and intuitive. I miss ole Devil wine

Heyyyy,

Well I have noticed that someone called few breeds deadly? Seriously? I had a doberman pincher and an english cocer spaniel, and cocer was more "deadly" breed than a doberman:) Thinking now about a doberman again, I have never ever met a dog with such a character and such a big heart! No wonder why dobermans are no 5 in the most clever dog breeds.

P.S I love your list! Rodesians are amazing too!

Love that list......I grew up with 2 dobies(we used to push them around in my baby brothers pram lol),my mum and brother and me have/had Rotties(talk about teddy bears),my best friend has a Schnauzer,true what you say.....its not the breed its the bringing up that counts.

I have had German Shepherds on my 3rd one and he is a white German. He lives with 2 cats. I would say that it is how they are raised. Any well bred dog with proper well balanced owner makes a great dog.

Has anyone seen Skitboot? check out on UTube.....

Awww, what a cool topic!

I'd have to think....

My most favourite breed (MY breed laugh ).....#1...... is Weimaraners, hands down.... Looks-wise I prefer the shorthairs, but one day I'd love to have a Weimaraner longhair as well.

So, #2.... Norfolk Terrier (a dream, some day...)
#3... Border Terrier (a dream, some day...)
#4... White Swiss Shepherd (White German Shepherd in the US)

(the above three I could easily see in my home some day)

#5... Bracco Italiano
#6... probably Border Collie for their amazing working ability
#7... probably Belgian Malinois, same reason as above...
#8... Pharao Hound (Kelb tal Fenek) - would like to get to know them better and seems I'm in the right place to do that, LOL!
#9... mixes and mutts... the reason it's down on the list is because it's such an unpredictable bunch, LOL, but I've had the pleasure of knowing some really interesting ones... (and own one at the moment)
#10.... really struggling here.. I can't say something is my favourite breed if I don't know enough specimens personally.... but let's say, based purely on the looks, anything that has long enough legs to move well and just flies on the trot taking my breath away....

I am a dog lover and I have an English bull terrier I am annoyed that this type of dog is classed as possibly dangerous.I have met big and little dogs and feel that an animals personality,living conditions and environment whether it be a toy,working plays a huge part in reactions.I have been bitten by a chiuahua and jack russel and my dog is the softest natured dog I haave had.
KajunQueen
I had a Ridgeback once,but he was the most useless dog I ever owned,lol.
The best dog I ever owned was a mixed breed!
Part Bulldog,and part Cur. Very smart dog!
Dogs are like people,they all have their own personalities!
Thanks for the list!

How could you leave out Golden Retrievers!! Love the American Cocker Spaniel though - I have one living next door to me who wears a little green cardigan when it's cold....unbelievably cute!!
stareintospace
You left out Pomeranians!
But I get it, you're not zooming in on the 'cute' factor.

Why is your list a nix between the deadly and the freindly?



Used to breed and show dogs at one stage a few years ago and certainly could not afford to have a deadly dog in the ring .... I don't believe there are deadly dogs, Just bad owners !! So a mix of deadly and friendly, no .. Just a list of my favourites although i do generally like bigger dogs and dogs that have a purpose other than to be a fashion statement !!! banana dancing banana
