Not looking for anything in particular in the dog. Completely open to any breed. Thanks.
" @SuperTide: How much room do you have? Do you have a preference between large and small dogs? Purebred or mutt? Any small children/babies around? How much time are you willing to devote to training? How about walking? "I have a ton of space on my land. I'd prefer purebred and large. No children/babies at all. I have at least 2 hours per day for training/walking. I own several restaurants so have quite a bit of free time.
Get a Mongrel, less expensive and sadly there are so many issues with pure breeds.
"I don't know why people are saying German Shepards, that is the only dog I have been attacked by.. "
Sounds like the owners messed up but be glad it wasn't a Pitt, when owners screw up with this dog and they bite the only way to end it is by shooting or stabbing the damn thing....and I hate to stereotype but the majority of Pitt owners are low income, no brain morons. Don't bother hitting off a mauling Pitt with a big stick, they won't even feel you try to hit them off. When the Pitt sees red the only thing that stops them is a fatal shot.
Pitts... One of the few times I support extinction in the animal kingdom.
" @cpt_linger: huh?! when ever i read a top 10 smartest dogs list, labs are always on the list. being a lab owner myself, my dog is to smart most of the time. "Yeah they're rated for their emotional intelligence. Very protective but they're the sort of dog that runs into a glass sliding door, but knows exactly how to push your buttons.
You should get a dog that fits your lifestyle. If you are an outdoors person and enjoy cross-country runng then a Rhodesian ridgeback would be idea, but if you are a homebody then the ridgeback would be a bad choice as they love to run and walk long distances and like to be outdoor a lot.
research the various dogs and their temperament and personality types. They vary greatly from breed to breed.
either a boxer or a harlequin great dane I suggest female either way because males can be real bastards as in they are hard-headed, difficult to train, and think they run everything unless you are really strict (which can take some of the fun out of owning the dog) Oh yeah weimaraners are also really smart, easily trained, and incredibly loving but really really really really really don't get a male.
" @SuperTide: not true! I have had three different beagles over the last 15 years and they don't howl all night. The breed in general does, but it is how you train them. Get them while they are under 1 year old and it will be fine.ohok My bad.Come on, how can anyone resist??:D"
