Great suggestion. Good foster homes know their dogs, and it allows an older dog to get adopted. I always go for the older dogs, less trouble, and they have less opportunity for a second chance.

The Akita! I am now privileged to own one! Our pup is simply darling, but exemplifies the Akita's personality perfectly.

There are so many favorites for so many reasons: of course we are partial to English Springers: they are great all around dogs, and will do almost anything to please, plus they are the perfect size. We bred them for years.

Now, we have a little Shih TZu, which was a tramp dog, so we are not sure if he is pure or a mix, probably a mix; anyway, for a couple of retired people they are wonderful. They are happy just to sit on your lap, sleep with you and get a little love now and then, plus they are good with other dogs and kids.

Of course, like many, I have a place in my heart for mixed breeds but sometimes they do not turn out to be right for everyone. Among other favorites: any hunting or hound dog, especially German Short haired, and Britany Spanials. There are a few I do not like: Chows, little yappy guys, and for some reason dogs like Wolf hounds, they just don't seem to have much personality.

Boston terriers are my favorite!

They are also the perfect dog for the living quarters my girlfriend and I are in. Being in an apartment in NYC doesn't cater to a bigger dog and also not one that requires a lot of exercise.

He's a perfect size that the 3 of us can sleep together and not have to worry about losing the bed. And the faces he makes put me in tears because of how cute he is

English Mastiffs have always been my ffavorite. However we now have a St. Bernard elkhound mix and he is awesome. Great Danes are probably the coolest looking, but they tend to be a bit high strung (at least most of them I have encountered).

I had a cocker I loved a lot, a bichon, shi-poo, and a chihuahua.....a GSD when a kid, and loved my grandparent's corgi mix and springer spaniel....I just love dogs! Each breed or mutt has something special, but I've found my best boy ever....he's a shih-tzu I adopted from a rescue and is wonderful! I love him and love looking at his pretty face and long, flowing tail. Such a sweet little guy and very mellow. I'm lucky to have been able to have loved many dogs in my life. I enjoy seeing my sons' dogs, too, when I visit and actually miss them for a while after I leave. my little guy is right here by my feet and is the light of my life----don't know what I'd do without him!

Although I love my mixed breed dogs that I have now, Rhodesian Ridgebacks will always be my favorite. They are beautiful, athletic, powerful, smart, loyal and protective. They seem to know exactly what to do and when to do it. I've had two Ridgebacks in my past and will be my next dog.
