    I'd get another Yorkie I lost my Yorkie last year to pancreatitis and I have missed him so much every day since I'd always adopt, I'd never buy from a breeder. "Adopt, don't shop" as they say

    German Shepherd of course - best dog on earth imo. I couldn't get a small dog.
    Don't mind where from.

    German Shepherd the best dog breed.

    If not a Belgian Shepherd one of the black fluffy ones

    Golden retrievers are pretty amazing too

    Don't care about the breed. Always rescue. :closedeyes:

    I have 2 cats and they're both from an animal shelter. If I got a dog I'd probably get one from an animal shelter too, but not in this town. I live in an area with a lot of pitbulls and the vast majority of shelter dogs are pitbulls.

    I prefer mix breeds, because they look awesome, are generally more loyal, and live far longer.

    And your evidence for this rather sweeping claim is?

    It's usually true that mixed breeds live longer & are healthier as many pedigrees are highly inbred & suffer from health defects accordingly unfortunately .
    I know that a lot of German Shepherds in the UK develop hip/back leg problems after a few years because of inbreeding.

    As for the rest of his post - I'd say it comes down to personal preference. I've got no idea if mixed breeds are more loyal but they do say that rescue dogs are because they're grateful to be given a home (I suppose a lot are mistreated unfortunately). I haven't noticed much difference personally though.

    ...what breed would it be?
    Would you buy from a breeder or get from a rescue/rehoming place?
    Get one that doesnt have tinnitus. My dog barks completely randomly and frequently which is hugely annoying.

    Ideally, a wolf/huskie, but you'd need to walk it miles each day and keep it cool/deal with all the down :beard:

    Alternatively, something like a red setter, would be nice

    1) Everyone has a lab these days

    2) Rare types are often the result of inbreeding, and I've known a few lab owners whose pets have had health probs anyway

    £170? For a reputably bred puppy?

    Over £500 I'd think.
    You're right.
    My bad.
    Thought I was in Bosnia...
    £450-£750 in UK depending on how posh the lineage.
