Rottweiler. The wife and I have had two that have come from quality breeders and they have been wonderful dogs. Loyal and affectionate. They were great when the kids were young. I like them from German lines so they are not as big and a little more athletic.

Probably a Black Mouth Cur to do coyote hunting and deer tracking or an English Shepherd...Both are American Breeds still used for work.

Randy Wright had an actual line of working BMC's down in TX. Don't know if he is still doing it as I haven't talked with him for years.

Probably another rescue of some sort or the other. Although I also daydream about an Irish or Scottish Wolf/Deer Hound...have always loved those dogs. Although I think the Wolfhounds tend to have pretty short lifespans. It’s tough enough to loose a dog at 12 or 13, but 7or 8 would really suck.

I'd take a jaunt down to the pound, spend a bit of time with the dogs, see which ones feels right.

Can't bring myself to buy a purebred that doesn't have a job.

Agreed, no free rides. No sporting breed for me = no dog.

I really liked our Beauceron. I would consider another one. Our Great Dane was a very nice dog. I had a rescue Greyhound right out of college, so I like sight hounds. The Ibizan Hound has always caught my eye.

Some kind of terrier. Maybe a Border terrier. But I would feel bad for my griff, because he would probably be dominated by a little 20 pound dog.

I know of at least one guy that does that for squirrel and blood tracking dogs. Its a pet obviously but he does recover a lot of deer with it. Looks to be terrier-ish.

Patterdale Terrier. Have one now and pound for pound have never seen a tougher dog. Only bad thing is life expectancy isn’t very long they will fight anything and will not quit until there dead or whatever they got ahold of is dead. This is my third one and not one has made it past five. They have all been great with my kids also.

Havanese or Shih Tzu. I like a small breed of dog also so that it can be a great buddy to my cat.
