What is the greatest type of doggo and why is it the newfie?
Newfoundlands and all the giant mastiffs cost more in feeding than humans.
Not to mention the grooming and constant hip dysplaysia.
Totally not master race. Just a fashion accessory for lowbrow braggarts with more money than brains
Not even trolling.
I can not recommend a Standard Poodle enough. Especially if you have kids.
>They don't molt
>Very intelligent (second only to Alsatians I think)
>Will literally get up and get down when you want them to.
Poodle could be asleep, and you could wake it up and throw a ball. The dog would fetch it and wait for you to throw it again. If you don't, it'll just go back to sleep.
It's why so many of the hybrids have Poodle in them.
Just don't cut them in that pom-pom bullshit.
Their only use is to survive the cold climate that Labrador (and Newfoundland, I guess) has, other than that just get a Labrador Retriever, they're much cheaper than the Newfoundland dogs
hahaha if you mixed a poodle with a labrador you'd get a LABRADOODLE!!!
Their hips are fucked, though, cos of breeding to get that sloped spine.
If you're gonna get an Alsatian, make sure you get one with a good Hip Score.
I prefer dogs who don't produce gallons of saliva every day.
And yes, I'm being hyperbolic about the "gallons" part, before anyone decides they're gonna look smart for knowing exactly how much saliva whatever breed of dog actually produces. They still drool way too much, is my point.
Labradoods are awesome!
They make perfect guild dogs for the blind, cos of the get up and down trait of the poodle.
And don't affect people with allergies, cos they don't molt.
Only problem with them is, the species is so new, there are no defining personality traits with them yet. It's pot luck what it's going to be like.
I fucking love 'em, though.
That doesn't make sense. I've never seen a stupid Poodle. Did they come with a pedigree?
They could've been a middle piece of a breeding programme, cos people are always trying to get the Standard temperament into the Miniature and Toy Poodles.
Were they small for Standards? Or not a uniform colour all over?
i've only had working dogs as pets and they've been great. some were a bit needy, some a little spastic, but intelligence, obedience, and personality make all the difference in a doge
Forgot pic damnit
My CKCS is 16 years old and has had little to no health problems other that arthritis which is really common for dogs his age. I've had 2 and neither of them have ever had heart issues. Am I just lucky? How common is heart disease in them?
A friend of mine has one of those. You can't leave any paper lying around at all, or she'll shred it.
Can't even leave the bathroom door open or she'll rip the toilet paper to pieces.
White German Shepherd >>>>
never had that issue except with a teething mountain feist pup, who devoured toys designed for pits, i swear he was part hyena. anyway he grew up to be the best dog ever. aussie shepherd was good but a spaz. corgi tried to herd other kids if they ran.. all fantastic pets though.
to your point you should be able to train all but the dumbest of dogs not to shred paper, and any working breed should be half the work as they aim to please, i'd say the problem in that equation was your friend or whoever first raised the dog, or she got one with poobrain
Border Collie/ Shepherd mix are amazing dogs.
had pretty much all the major dog breeds.
Currently have a greyhound and its by far the best dog I have ever had.
Doesnt beg for attention all the time,
Sleeps when you are out/not keen to do anything. Super energetic and fun when you want to hangout and play.
Super smart, super sweet personality.
Has so many facial expressions and is so good at telling me what she wants or is feeling etc.
Only goes to the toilet twice a day, let her out before work and before I go to bed. She doesnt really want to go outside for any non toilet related issue. Never begs to go out by the door or anything.
Has super short hair and never sheds.
Never barks, super quiet.
Doest hwoof her food down so I can just fill it up in the morning and it lasts her the whole day.
Great with kids, never shoes aggression or anything.
Rides super well in my car, I have a 4wd with draws in the back and she jumps straight in and just lies down and looks out the window.
Negatives are, her nails grow pretty quick but I just grind them with a dremel.
She gets cold pretty easy so i need to keep some jackets on her in winter. But its actually kinda fun putting her jackets on and picking out stupid patterns and stuff.
Highly recommend, will only ever have greyhounds for the rest of my life.
Forgot to mention another thing i hate in some dogs and love in greyhounds is you never see their anus, nothing worse than just copping anus from your pet all the time.
Did you have it from a puppy or is it an ex racing dog?
I've heard that the ex racers make good pets cos they're happy to chill, but have loads of energy when you walk or play with them.
Plus there's lots of charities that deal with them and you're giving a poor dog a deserved happy life.
shes an ex racer.
You can see the appreciation in her eyes.
Everyone jokes that I shouldn't put her near a rabbit but I actually have a pet rabbit and they get along great. Before that I used to have a ferret and the dog used to sleep with it.
Shes just always on my level, thats how I can explain it.
None of those like pushing your dogs snout through the door cause its desperate to come to work with you.
Shes like "see ya later and swings her arm" from her bed while shes upside down when I leave the house. Then when I come home shes all snuggly and pleased to see me.
Another thing I love about them is they dont slobber on shit. Or make loud noises when they sleep or sneeze shit everywhere around your house. SOOOO much cleaner than any other dog ive had.
>not getting the Chad dog which gets you a free gf
Grew up with a Sheltie. Awesome dog and breed, intelligent and fun. Though mind you ours was roughly 2-3 times larger than usual, so at the size of a border. Much better with some size as the usual size is a bit small...
my mom has a jack shitpoo (half jack russel, half shitzu poodle) that we got when i was about 13 and she is one of the most low-key, intelligent, conscientious little dogs ever. and shes lived an extremely long time with little health problems. the only thing is her anal glands get congested in the spring ever couple years.
shes always had a ton of energy, could run forever, and she was a handful when she was young, but after she had a litter of puppies she calmed down.
Ok fellas, which of these 3 is the healthiest and strongest dog? Doberman, rottweiler, or pitbull.
I'm thinking of getting one, but I want one with the best maintenance/health record.
You are missing the two best breeds. These two dogs eat pittbuls for breakfast.
the first one is the turkish Kalgan
the second one is the caucasian ovcharka.
You can't go wrong with either of these monsters
I knew a guy who had a Rotty that he took off a neighbour when it was 6 months (or so) old cos the neighbour was a cunt and my mate knew he'd raise the dog wrong.
He just treated it like a family pet, and it grew up to be the happiest bouncy dog I've ever known.
It looked like a monster, but it was a soft piece of shit. Didn't have a mean streak in its body.
But mate, there is no chance of me getting one of those warhounds where I live. That's why I asked about the pitbulls, rottweiler, or dobermen. Thanks anyway though!
Kangals don't exist here in Malta. You can't even get a Newfoundland or a Saint Bernard here. My country sucks. Being part of the EU dictatorship sucks even worse. Pity me.
That wasn't my main reason no, but it certainly a factor.
I've just long since realized that I have to make it extremely obvious when I'm making a joke and being serious, or else legions of autists get hung up on word choice or something else, and whatever valid point I was trying to make goes completely unnoticed. So now I make sure I leave as few openings for that to happen as possible.
I grew up with a black miniature schnauzer and a mini schnauzer mix. Best little fucking dogs ever. The little mix would pull rats out of the ivy in our backyard, shake the shit out of it, and bark her ass off until you came out and acknowledged her hunting prowess.
All three are loyal. Pits get a bad rep. They are fast and strong. But they are small which means longer life. Rots and dobies live about 8-10 yrs. Dobies are strong but not the strongest out of the three. They are just fast as shit. I have a dobie now. I just prefer the breed. But if your looking for all around strength, intelligence and loyalty I have to say get the rot
If you have the property for it, get an Akbash. They have all of the bonuses of a retriever, but they are bigger, stronger, and super smart.
Don't have kids though, it might kill them.
I've had 2 poodles. Both very smart and knew commands. If I say "slippers", it doesnt matter where they are, she runs and brings them to me one at a time. She will also let the other dogs in and out of the house. My old one would always get a wrapped dog treat at christmas and on birthdays. And she would wait to open it until we were all opening gifts. She knew what gifts were hers, and would wait even if they were under the tree for weeks. Then open them herself and trot off with her toy or treat and ignore the wrapping.
A hound that whispers eldritch riddles to you while you slumber is good for every home
I love me a mongrel with definite traces of collie.
we have no idea what else is in him though, anyone any ideas?
one more for good measure
he's such a funny shape though
I could definetly recommend a Rhodesian Ridgeback very loyal dogs, very stubborn though. Mine is really socialized I can literally stick my hand in her mouth when she stole a sparerib and she doesn't even keep biting. Mine is currently 10 this foto is from 9 years ago when she was about to turn 1. She is a livernose with small ears.
The best dogs are mutts of the best breeds. I have a husky Labrador mix and he's so smart.
>doggo has previously taken a bowl outside for whatever reason
>be outside chilling with my gf and friends
>doggo wants food so he brings us a vessel used for food.
>gets super excited when it's clear we understand him and get him food
>eats it all
>doggo stares at gf who is holding water bottle
>makes a noise somewhere between a small howl and a whine
>give him water from another bottle and he gets all excited again then just chills with us outside
I don't understand what keeps people from drawing parallels to animals like their pets and animals that they eat everyday. It's an uncomfortable thought but you're a pussy if you refuse to think about stuff because it's hard to
we thought so, like my mum is convinced he's corgi because he's got short legs but that's definitely not right
i've thought jack russell before, also maybe staffordshire bull terrier because of his weirdly shaped head
>friendly towards other dogs and humans
>loves being outside
>doesnt drool as much as other big dogs
Short life span 6-11
Train at young age
Nah. I just think awoooo~ is cute.
Cropped ears is the only way to go.
My German Shepard is a fucking moron who chases shadows, flashlight beams, and her own tail and has a innate capacity to get bladder infections. Fuck if I don't love her though.
If the dog looking exactly like that is important to you then go for it. My dog is half German Sheppard half newfoundland. Both parents from good stock. He's far and away there best dog I've ever been around. Don't buy for breed.
He hunts with me, he can kill rabbits and bring them back with no damage. Hell chase until called so I can shoot. He's fearless. Will literally face down a bear
I have a cockapoo, very similar specs stupid name though
As someone who works at a dog kennel, I have to say that the breed of a lot of dogs don't really matter, as long as it's a good dog. My personal favorite dog was a 16 year old chihuahua, who never barked. She just wanted cuddle and be held.
This is my dogoo!! Shihtzu x Maltese, best little guy ever
Want to get a dog badly, don't mind adopting a matured dog (2 yrs+) that's largely worked out of its energy since I work minimum 8 hrs a day (though I would definitely run/play with it in my off time). Only worry I have is cost, and even then only really vet visits. Any anons have any advice to confirm/allay my worry?
Caucasian ovcharkas are awful pets. I know a family that got 2 and didn't train them right and they now have a 160 pound dog that gets aggressive. These dogs are big enough and tough enough that there is actually a concern that the male could kill you or at least other dogs that get too close. Unless you want a guard dog then I don't recommend it.
You should consider a small dog, they are low energy and dogs like shihtzu a don't shed so you won't have to worry about cleaning up much. Posting another of my baby since he looks like a toy when he's not shaved
Doggo thread without best doggo? Dogo Argentino is here now. All is well. Good with kids, intelligent, sturdy, no hip dysplasia like other big breeds, no shedding, the only downfall is late life pigment related deafness. Neither of my Dogos have gone deaf though. Literally the perfect doggo.
Mom used to have a mastiff, I fucking loved that dog. Loyal as fuck and listened to you. Pic related, same breed
Don't underestimate this fella, tfw he would tear the balls of anything posted so far.
I was sitting in the car one day, waiting for my wife to come out of a shop.
Saw this movement out of the corner of my eye, and turned to look.
Saw a face like your pic looking at me. Thought a dog had jumped up at my car window.
Doggo just walked off at the same height. Thing's head was level with my passenger door window.
I know someone with Cockapoo. He's awesome.
They've also got a Poochon and the two of them are crazy.
Don't know for sure she was a lost with her sister when she was rescued
where are the damn aussies in this thread
Karelian Bear Dog is epic but it's not suitable for everyone. For regular people German Spitz is pretty easy.
I found this stray can anyone tell me what breed he is
TAKE IT EASY MAN, it's not that this is a competition or something.
