My favorite has always been the German Shepherd but I've recently taken a liking to Standard Poodles. I tend to go for the smartest dogs. Had a border collie years ago and she was the smartest and best dog ever. Currently have 2 wolf hybrids - great watchdogs and they sing beautifully. The male is super loveable; female is tougher than nails. While "mutt" isn't exactly a breed, I believe that is the best choice since you often get the best of each breed and usually fewer health problems.

Any rescue dog. So many unique mixes and most of them smart as a whip once they know they will be loved and treated well.

I've owned several dogs of various breeds and have loved them all, but my favorite, for their intelligence and loyalty, has to be the Border Collie. Mine is lying by my feet as I type. Within two weeks of rescuing him from my local shelter he was alerting me when my blood sugar levels dropped dangerously low. Then he started picking up everything I dropped, which was a considerable amount due to a tremor in my hands. Finally, he began to recognize when I would get down in the dumps and he would let me have a day to feel depressed, then he would jolly me out of my bleak mood by licking me, starting at my toes. By the time he'd reach my face, I'd be laughing and ready to get up. I did not teach my boy any of these things. He simply recognized a need and met it with intelligence and compassion. I love all dogs, but there will always be a special place in my heart for the Border Collie.

All our pugs we found as puppies at the flea market. I'm sure they came from puppy mills. Out cats came to us a little kittens whose mothers were strays in our neighborhood (we found out later) we took them in and fed them and adopted them.

Sheltie - Any dog with a Collie mix

3,039 Views
Message 110 of 228

First dog Collie/Beagle mix. Lived 16 yrs never a health problem. Protective when he needed to be.  Taught himself to grab the back bottom of a pants leg to jerk people down going thru our yard.

Second - Samoyed Extremely loving and dedicated.  Gorgeous dog. Loved to

howl and sing.  Developed large tumors in her tummy. Put her down at 6.

Third dog my Sheltie- Puppy from Shelter.  Quite independent where she always

didnt have to be beside you as long as you were in view.  Protective when needed.  Walked the property line when we moved to a new place and she'd never leave the property.  How did she know?  Was never trained to know and no electric fence.  Quickest to learn common commands. Smartest ever. Lived to 14.

My fourth and last as I'm a older senior now and not as mobile as I used to be.

She's a rescue Collie and what looks to be a Corgi mix with shortened legs.

Looks all Collie but the legs.  My what an unexpected handful!!  Outside the nose

of a hunter and brings me a mouse, vole, baby gophers that came into her domain.  Due to her abuse she wants to attack every dog or person that goes by.

Protective of me and our property.  Three months before I could pet her head bc

she thought she'd be hit.  Tail between her legs for three months.  Always on

point like a Sentinal.  She can scent an approach at an unbelievable distance.

Indoors clingy like Velcro and a shadow everywhere I go.  Never had a more loving attentive dog.  When I first brought her home she ate all my fast food lunch

i put down for a moment and took my seat.  Think she had to fight for her food out on the streets. Never did it again once she realized she had a forever home of food and love.
