My favourite breed of dog is the Collie because they are very intelligent and can be well trained plus they look really nice. My least favourite used to be the Yorkshire Terrier because they always seemed to be yappy and badly behaved but then my Mum got one and she is well behaved and adorable. I guess my least favourite now is the Great Dane and that is because they are so BIG - they must be hard to control and I wouldn't want to clean up after them!

Great Danes tend to be pretty docile and easy to manage really. I love sighthounds, like Greyhounds and Deerhounds (we have a Greyhound, a Deerhound and a Lurcher) I'm not much of a fan of spaniels.

I guess they have to be well trained - if they wanted to run away you couldn't stop them by force and their bark is very loud. A Greyhound, Deerhound and Lurcher! Do you have a big house?

nope. we do have a fairly big orchard they get to run in though, and they curl up quite small when they're sleeping. the Lurcher likes to sit on my lap with his head hanging across the back of my neck.

I'm with you Galena. I love the sighthounds. I've had both greyhound and whippet. Right now I have a whippet and a sheltie.

yorkshire terrier - they are so cute!
Well I have to agree with your mom on this one because Yorkies are my favorite also! They are so cute and cuddly and you can take them anywhere without them taking up a lot of space. Chiuaua is my least favorite they just remind me of rats!

So your favourite dog is a small dog and your least favourite is also a small one. That seems to be rare.

My favorite is the German Shepherd. They are very handsome dogs, and very smart, and can be good guard dogs. I had one years ago who was very friendly and would not hurt a fly but people would ask if it was safe to get out of their car when he was loose! My least favorite is the chihuahua because many of them are nippy and yappy, and have those buggy little eyes.

My all time favorite dog is the German Shepherd. They are intelligent as well as beautiful. I don't have a least favorite. I like all dogs.

They must be pretty good as the police pick them for their dogs.

I pretty much love all dogs. I must admit though that I prefer large breeds. My favorite is the Saint Bernard (I own one), followed closely by Newfies, Bernese Mountain Dogs, Mastiffs, and Boxers. I have to say I dislike yappy Pomeranians. My parents have one, and he is honestly the worst dog we've ever had.
