This is too funny! I was going to suggest a labradoodle but all the lab owners I meet (hunting dog owners) about have a coronary when you mention them.labman said:I hope she didn't read that if so (Duck) :victory: seriously think about the fostering. I hate to say it you sound like a possible goldendoodle or labradoodle owner I have met several people with them and most have been very happy it's a great idea in theroy. you take the great personality of a lab or a golden combine with smarts and non shedding of poodles and you have the perfect dog problem is science doesn't work that way it takes many generations breeding the best to the best to secure a breed. so in the mean time they are high priced mutts if you can get passed that they might be worth a look. there are so many excellent dogs out there right now in shelters one positive or negitive result of the current forecloser situations.
I will most definatly go with what fits best for us. I dont belong to any other site to discuss with people and being on this one the past couple years it seems like a pretty goo group. I see Deb and Labman helping people all the time when I have become a snob and rarley visit the noobies section. I look and see fish has ich Help and I go man how many times have I seen that when this group will always chime in to help out the new guy. If im going to trust peoples opinion this is the group I trust (even know i have never met them) thanks for the input just bought a book how to pick your dog. Not that I havnt been on every website out there but sometimes books are nicer. Anyway the quest continues and from someone who misses his old dog. Dont forget to pet your dog today. Our is that hug your kids....Oh welltanglovers said:I won't get into the 'oodle' breeds other then if you decide on one of these research their breeders even more then you typically would any other. Tons of problems with these guys, because many people who have a lab or golden breed it to a poodle and charge alot.
The nicest of these I have seen were 4th generation imported I think from Australia, they were nice, healthy dogs.
Like labman said, figure out what you guys like and feel comfortable with. Everyone will tell you get this or that but when it comes down to it, you guys are the ones owning it.
Sounds like my Boxerzrack4 said:I dont want to have to worry about any bad behavior towards people main thing. I travel sometimes so I would like one that you may think twice about entering my house but if you really know the dog you would laugh at people who are scared of it. I would like a smart dog that is very trainable and likes to go for walks.
straight from a breederRemingtion said:I never had a Weimaraner but they are suppose to be great dogs.. Loyal and smart... That's going to be the next dog I'm going to buy.
The kids found a guy in my backyard last night at around 2am. I just fell asleep and heard "the bark". They will bark at people walking by, but this was a deep growl. So, I jump out of bed, and grab the quick release leashes.... We did a check of the house, then went out side to walk the perimeter. The lead me right into the backyard, and cornered a suspicious looking fellow. I have never seen someone climb a wooden privacy fence so fast. Walk soft and carry 300+ lbs of dog.aquanewbie said:I want a bullmastiff sooooo bad! I say go for the bullmastiff!! :victory:
