That really is a tough question. We've had several purebeds and a few mutts over the years. Most of our dogs have been big, huge dogs until about 8 years ago. The big ones were getting too difficult to handle so eventually we got 2 smaller dogs. Over the years we've had a Hungarian Puli, an English Mastiff, an Old English Sheepdog, an Irish Wolf hound and a Bouvier. At this point we rescued a mix breed that was medium sized. After he passed away we rescued a Chinese Crested mix (a breed I have always wanted), at the same time we also rescued a long haired Chihuahua. They were all great dogs. If I absolutely had to pick which breed was my favorite, I would have to say our Chinese Crested. He's on the smaller side, doesn't shed cause he's hairless and is a real clown. If money were no object and space wasn't an issue, I'd get one of each again. I do love the big ones though.

Siberian Huskies can't be beat.  They are stunners with all the color combos and the killer

blue eyes on many.  Not to mention they just kill with the perfect eyeliner every time.  They

are the biggest goof balls.  They never fail to entertain me.  Love their zoomies and how they

talk.  Just too much fun.

My favorite  dog breeds  are the German Shepherd and the Yorkshire Terrier. 

 

I don't have any dogs, I have a feral Calico cat name Dana. I've had her since she was  a

kitten, she is now 7 years  old.

@Frozenoem  And I have been thinking that your doggie girl has been quiet for quite awhile.  Nice picture!

I also own a pitbull. Today for Halloween I'm going to dress her up as a cupcake.

Still Dutch Shepherds working on 4th, I think I’m wrapped around her dew claw. All rescues!

 

Despite her pulling her 50 pound bin of food, across kitchen floor, through dining room to rest mid carpet, with an additional 50 lb’s of packed laptops (big box).

 

She apparently disliked my going off in search of more food for both of us.

I've got a couple of Beagle dogs, and I just adore having them around. They are such a friendly, good natured dog, and so good with children.

They also get along with all the other dogs in the neigbourhood and I've trained them get along with my cat.

They do occassionaly bark when a person they don't know visits us, but they are easily won over after a bit of a pat - so for that reason the beagle doesn't maked a good guard dog.

The one thing that they do love to do is go hunting, and they love hunting together, bit like a pack, so I plant a few treats in the backyard and then get them to go hunt.

I've had other breeds of dogs before, but for my the beagle is my favourite, they intelligent, very curious and rarely aggresive, not to mention, they have an awesome sense of smell.
