the anatolian shepherds and the great pyrenees are my two favorite breeds. i love their extreme gentleness with their families .... especially kids .... their complete independent nature ..... their size , looks, their innate ability to think and reason , and their protectiveness when it is necessary.
the breed i would also love to own in the future would be a tibetan mastiff ...... and a chihuahua.
Toy poodles. They are so loving, playful, smart, fancy looking. I love the variety of coat colors and the different grooming styles. I like standards also but I think it would be too hard for me too maintain it well groomed all the time.
English Springer Spaniels. I love them for their goofiness. They are such silly dogs. I love them for their energy.. even in their golden years they are still puppies. I love them for their beauty. Their coats are just perfect to me, both show and field bred. They are not too big, not too small. They love people no matter what, are sweet, loving and gentle. The only thing wrong with springer spaniels is once you own one, you will never own another breed ;)

Pitbull Terriers- The 'triangle-head' and just the sweet personality, its like he knows everything before you do, good kissers and I'm always for the under-dog.
Old English Sheepdogs- don't have an one but I'm going to get one soon- Its seems like I've been preparing forever- I've done so much research on the breed, I love everything I've read!
Bouvier de Flandres- I just love the way they look, saw one recently and fell in love. But since than I've done some research, and that must've been one well-groomed bouvier cuz most of them don't look like that! haha
I like Goldens because they are beautiful adults (and fluffy cute puppies), athletic, smart, sweet/loving, big lap dogs, and multi-purpose...conformation, hunting, agility, obedience, etc.
I like PRT because they are big dogs in little packages, very smart, silly (they love to make their owners laugh), athletic, sweet, playful, and a very handsome breed when well bred (as with any breed).
I have owned Golden Retrievers on and off for 13+ years and currently own two...Kelsey and Hayden.
I have owned a Parson (Jack) Russell Terrier and he was a great dog from great American/English Champion bloodlines. I want to own more in the near future.
Me, I like the "different" looking doggies. I have two English Bulldogs and two Chinese Cresteds. Everyone thinks they're ugly but I don't give a rats a** what they think, they are both loyal, great with my children, playful, very playful. Ever see a smash faced dog trying to ever so gently play with a hairless skinny dog? Very entertaining, I might add! lol They're great, I love my doggies.
