    German Shepard of those four, if only for the possibility of calling it 'Commander Shepard' and training it to heel whenever I say "I should go."

    Never been a fan of greyhounds though. Athletic, but they always look so emaciated. Part of the Irish side of my family keeps greyhounds, come to think of it.

    Did you know that grayhounds are actually one of the oldest breeds? They're present in Ancient Egyptian illustrations as well as those from the medieval period depicting hunting D. Like all sight hounds, they have a really wide field of vision and their lightweight structure is so that they can hunt very quick animals like rabbits. You also need to keep them on a leash, because they will run after that animal and you can't train them to not do it. And when they're not running, they're super couch potatoes.


    Grayhounds are adorable. All these dogs are. I'm sad the Pomeranian gets no love. They're so hyper it's ridiculous

    The Pomerianian dogs are silly. I wouldn't have one, but they are cute.

    I like Pomeranians because they're literally fluff balls with feet and giant eyes.

    German Shepard's are a beautiful dog, but Greyhounds are one of the coolest animals on the planet. I pick them.

    Three of those options, I would kick off a boat. German Shepherd from the list, Bearded Collie otherwise.

    why do you pick 4 of the most deformed dogs breeds?
    the german sheppards backhand is so low that it gives health problems. just a 100 years ago it was a very nice breed untill someone decided that a lower backhand should be it
    the french bulldog with his flat nose. last summer i encountered one of those.. my dog didnt know what to do with the little doggy as he was running around snorting. after a minute it couldnt handle it and puked..
    the Pomerian, as u cute as they are the skulls are so tiny that they always have headaches.

    im not sure about the greywind so ill pick that one

    Sigh...

    German Shepherds represent classic, wolf-like characteristics

    French Bulldogs represent the flat-faced breeds

    Grayhounds are the sight hound representatives

    And Pomeranians represent toy dogs


    I get that selective breeding can get terrible and dogs (and cats) often have to suffer for our twisted wims, but this thread is not about advocating unhealthy breeding habits (my German shepherd was born before that stupid trend and I am very much against it, and I think older types look much nicer), but these dogs exist and I wanted to see what the general tastes are. Might as well use this to spread awareness and encourage people to breed more responsibly.

    That is an Italian Greyhound!

    Also that is definitely a Rottie pup up there too!

    My dog of choice is a Rottie, a Springer Spaniel, or a Bernese Mountain Dog.

    true enopugh, but perhaps with the exception of the wolf-like the rest of the groups are still fcked up.

    My mutts are part GShep so I'll go with that one. They're dorks though. They're shaped like a Gshep but they have the black short hair like the lab they have in them.
