Question - Breeds? Breeds?

This may have been covered all ready, but I can't find it in my most recent

What breed (s) of dog do you own?
Do you have a preference on males vs females? If so, why?

I will start.....

I currently have 4 Shiba Inu.

I love this breed for it's intelligence, intuitiveness, independence, sense of humour, and of course, look. They are a very proud breed which is so endearing.

I do have a slight preference of males vs females. I love male Shibas. They are much more in tune with me, especially when I am not feeling well, or need a dog-hug! Males are more loyal, and would not take a cookie from JUST anyone. The girls are more

Cool - Breeds? Breeds?

I have one male Jack Russell Terrier, called Billy. He is so loving! I didn't mind what sex, but my DH would only have a male dog. After next doors dog being in season 2 years ago, I can see why! The dogs were coming up the back lane from miles away, and my dog was going beserk!
Now he's "done" it isnt so bad! (& their dog was the daughter's boyfriends, and he took her with him)

We have two dogs. Both shelter puppies. One one's record, the breed is listed as Chicockapoohua (Chihuahua/Cockapoo mix) and the other is listed as a Chishi-tzuhua (chihuahua/shi-tzu). We have one of each as far as sex. The first, Honey, is a boy. The second, Penny, is a girl. They were from an animal shelter that works with a retirement home. All those little lap dogs breeding with each other! We got them both as puppies. Their birthdays are tomorrow and the tenth. One year! No more puppy chow!
Take care,

We have boxers. One male, who is all white except for a brown patch around his right eye (he's not deaf as some white boxers are), and a fawn colored female.

We love the breed for their personality, they are the biggest clowns. They actually have a sense of humor as strange as that sounds. Our female likes to tease people.

I don't really have a preference of one sex or the other, they both have different, equally neat qualities.

They are very very good with kids and are very protective. Loyalty to the end.

Our white boxer we call the "mutant boxer" because he weighs 95 lbs. which is way over the standard for a male dog (they should be 60-70 lbs.). The female is about 55 lbs. a nice sized dog. They are very athletic and muscular and have abundant amounts of energy.

Lot's of fun!

I have had male & female Border Collies. They are extremely smart. I also had a female Carolina dog and a female Bouvier. With Border Collies I don't have a preference. I would rather have a female Carolina dog and Bouvier. Bouviers are one person dogs and the females are more sweet matured.

I have 2 dogs. The female is a yellow lab mix (I don't know what she is mixed with). The male is a chocolate lab/rhodesian ridgeback mix. Both are fixed (or broken as my husband says). They have been great dogs, esp. with the kids. The female is getting older (10) and has horrible hip dysplasia and arthritis. I don't think she'll be around much longer as she is in alot of pain. The male is only 2 and drives the female nuts (although she lost 20 pounds after we got him). I don't think I have a gender preference; they are both great dogs. The female was definitely easier to housebreak though.

I have been a "cat person" all my life, but last summer my DS's and I adopted a pit bull mix (one vet says he's 100% pit bull, another says he's an American Staffordshire terrier, and I've also been told he's half lab, but given that he avoids the swimming pool, I don't think so).

Beau was found wandering the streets of Modesto, CA, at about 9 months old, with foxtails between his toes. He was taken to a shelter, where he was spotted by a representative from a rescue group. She couldn't resist his charming personality and snatched him from the jaws of death ; then took him to her vet, who did several procedures to remove the foxtails, cleaned him up, wormed him, microchipped him, gave him his shots, snorfleed him... basically turned him into a "new" Beau. Then she put him up for adoption on the internet, where my DS spotted him.

He has become a delightful member of our family. He loves everyone - people, dogs, even cats... it took ours a while to accept him, but they now consider him part of the family just as we do. He's a 'couch potato', content to hang out on the sofa with me and watch chick flicks all night, but he also has tons of energy if the kids want to go out and run around with him. He's great security for me because people who don't know him assume he is 'dangerous' but in reality he's a softie.

I have a lovely collie named Angus. We love to take him out and about. Kids say "look Mom/Dad ... it's Lassie!" People actually slow their vehicles to get a good look (DH sweetly says the men are really looking at me, nice). Anyway, Angus is prettier than Lassie but I understand the comparison.

He is named for the guitarist of AC/DC, Angus Young. I chose the dog, DH got to choose the name!

He's matured into a wonderful family member. Warning for anyone thinking of a collie, they are incredibly smart and are people oriented. So don't get one and expect it to sit passively alone day after day. They will get your attention even if it takes trouble to do so!
