If you could not own a sporting breed, what would be your breed of choice?

I had two German Shepards when I was a kid. Took the second one through some OB training. My first foray into dog training and it was a great experience. I was 10 years old and the dog worshiped me. Once he understood what I was asking he was very happy to do it for praise and a pat on the head. If I could find a healthy mentally stable GS I could get a lot of enjoyment working scent work, OB, maybe some agility stuff.

Probably a terrier of some sort. Maybe a Norwich, Irish or a Kerry Blue although my mom's boyfriend has two giant schnauzers, one is gray and one is black and they are as cool as the other side of the pillow.

Actually, I’d go for the Wolf Hound too. Just the right amount of ugly to satisfy my personal taste.

Rough coated collie...

Not one of the pointy nosed, beady eyed AKC types but a German bred working farm dog like my dad brought back after the war.

Scottish deer hound. A coyote has a real bad day running into one.

Border Collie. We used them to work cattle with when I was growing up. Smart as a whip. I think they were the most trainable dogs I have been around.

Cane Corso. athletic loyal really great retrievers. As long as you aren't to particular about what they retrieve. Like that 4 year old buck you have been watching on your trail cams that next year would be a shooter. Maybe the bumper of your mother in laws car after she showed up unannounced. My last one Grizz brought me my neighbors pit bull that ran around off leash. Skills like this aren't trained they are born with them. :D

Case in Point. I could easily go down the JRT road in the future. This dog is also a good blood tracking dog. Calm as can be in the house. Needs to be cloned.

I had a JRT that was a great blood trailer, fetch doves, great little dog, her dad got killed by a bear , they all think they are as tuff as a bear, more grit than brains. Forrest
