Re: what breed of dog should i get?

It depends. Do you have kids? How big is your place? Are you looking for a company dog or a guardian dog?

Anyway, my favourite breed is the boxer. They're playful, great with children and cute as hell.

Re: what breed of dog should i get?

I like West Highland Terriers and the Black Scotties. They're wilful and tend to take over the roost and think they are the kings/queens of the castle, but very loyal and very intelligent. I love Labradors, but they are dustbins when it comes to food, not quite as loyal as my faves in that they'll go to anyone who has food and can pong as they really are roll in the muck dogs!

Don't get a pug. Health problems. But also my elderly neighbour had one for years. When she died the dog didn't give a sh@t and happily went off to live with another neighbour. I want my dog to be loyal!

Dogs are too fragile. You need a Maine coon.

Schipperke

We lost our beloved dog a couple months ago. Schipps are a wonderful breed!

that's hilarious. but even less loyal dogs are more loyal than any other pet. i wouldn't mind if my dog wasn't sad if i died.

Re: what breed of dog should i get?

What do you really like in a dog? How do you like to interact with the dog? There are too many factors to ask for suggestions without giving details. Space (as another poster mentioned), time, who you live with, etc, etc. I like big dogs so . .. .

Re: what breed of dog should i get?

I love my lab, I have a pure bred black lab and he's just sooo cute! He sheds like hell though, which I don't like but it's fine because he makes up for it

So out of that list I would say golden lab! Although my opinion is a little biased.

Golden Lab I used to have one for 13 years

Now I have a mini Schnauzer, they're cool too. But from the list you have I would totally pick a golden lab.
