First post - please help me figure out my stray's breed
Hi folks, I kept trying to google various mixes and always seemed pulled back to these boards looking at photos... So probably time for my first post :-) From what I can tell, I think he is part Malinois but 100% mystery. He weighs about 60 pounds, loves to sniff, never barks, is incredibly smart and...
First Post: What's Zoey?!?
Zoey is my 3 year old rescued mix. For all of her life, I've been trying to decide what exactly her breed is. She's an amazing dog that I would love to have another of. She's energetic, loving, a swimmer, a hunter, a sweetheart. She sheds something terrible, with a water resistant wavy coat...

Soft Coated Wheaten Terriers
Hi everyone! I love my Soft Coated Wheaten Terriers.. Any other "Wheaten" owners out there? They seem to be a pretty uncommon breed, if you ask me. When people ask what kind of dogs I have, they always seem pretty confused after I tell them what I have! (And for those unaware, saying "Soft...

Call me crazy, but I'm honestly thinking about adding a Chihuahua to my family. My best friend just got one and now it's reminding me why I love the breed so much! (For those of you that remember when I had Possum, I know that situation didn't work out as well as I wished. I re-homed her...

We recently adopted this beautiful girl Dutchess from a local rescue. She is 9 months old and weighs 55lbs already. We are thinking that she probably has some mastiff and boxer but wanted to see what you all might think! Thank you!(:

What's your favorite breed? Why?
Everyone has a favorite breed. Tell me about yours.
Beagles, as companions.
What is your opinion of Beagles as companion dogs, pets. Obviously their suitability as a house dog/family pet would probably depend on how far down the line their ancestors were used for hunting. Do Beagle enthusiasts and competitive handlers view dogs not our of hunting stock, as inferior?
