I like mini pins because they are so intelligent & clever.. & I love their markings.
I like dobermans because they are so graceful, beautiful, smart, & I remember when I was young, my neighbors had 2 dobies & they were soo calm & let me pet them for hours lol!
I like great danes because they are so humongus(sp) but they are so gentle & kind. I love playing with my next door neighbor's dane's (same one with the dobes but they both passed away). They just got a new harlequin pup & he is just the cutest thing..
BUT...Golden Retrievers are my favorite! I like them because they are beautiful as adults, cute as puppies, smart, gentle, willing to please, athletic, loyal, loving, and versitile...they can hunt, be pets, service dogs, show dogs, obedience dogs, etc.
I would have to say labs. My lab was the most mellow and laid back dog I've ever seen. I once had company stop by with their 2 year son, and she just laid on the couch while this little boy crawled all over her , hugging and kissing her like she was a big stuffed animal, not mention my lab was never raised or around children of any age, let alone a toddler.

But I am partial to my Alapaha Bulldogs. They are wonderful with my children easy to train, great friends, they love to be with us. They hate to be alone. They shed very little and are easily house trained. They are kind of cute also.
I get a lot of pit bull questions. "Is that a pitt bull?" I usually just say no and keep on going. No one has ever heard of an Alapaha. So I get a lot of funny looks.
But I love them. They are so energetic. Which for our family is a good thing, we are all pretty hyper alos.
