My favourite breed the Boxer.

We have had 6 over the years (all bitches)
Delightful breed and so good with our children when growing up.
They are faithful, loyal and adorable imo.

We had a Yorkshire Terrier (not one of those rat-on-a-rope types, a full size one). Not popular over here I see.

Argumentative so and so's with plenty to say from my experience.

Jack Russells here and 'Jack is our third, he's adorable, friendly and feisty. Smooth haired black/tan muzzle and white coat. I notice JR's don't even make the US list. Their loss. ;)

I have only ever owned one dog, a border terrier who died last year. I miss him dreadfully. I won’t be getting another dog as I am not fit enough and it wouldn’t be fair. Border terriers are great fun, great with kids, loyal and love a fuss.

although years since I enjoyed my two pet dogs, that is because now I am a dedicated cat person,
but my two loved breeds were German Shepard and Springer Spaniel :kiss:

I have 3 Labrador Retrievers, Peter, Henry and Donald. My goal is to get a Australian Cattle Dog soon, to rip robbers a new one. My dogs aren’t property as defined by law, they’re like my own kids. (Sorry human kids)
