Five Dog Breeds (Never want to own)
#11
Again....very difficult......

I would always have said poodles.....till I had to look after one and got to know them better.....
then staffies.......same thing happened.......

With the work I do with my dogs I need something fairly trainable and athletic, but I don't get on well with Gundogs, especially Spaniels.

Its much more individual dogs I don't like as opposed to breeds.

The only mistakes my dogs make are the ones I've taught them!

Yeah, that was a month or so before he died at 10 y.o. He was about 25 " at the shoulder maybe. They tend to be all legs. Maybe it's the angle of the pic, he was bigger than my BFs female BC (the dog that got me hooked on these darned border collies!) Here's a pic of them together, but she's not really good for size comparison since she's lying down.

Hmmm, just checked the breed standard. Males are 23" at the shoulder which is less than Woobie. But the kids were always talking about how Woobie was so much smaller than Rush, so I'm not sure. I always remember his shoulders being right about at my knees. /thinking

Anything with 'oodle' in the name
Chihuahua
Chow
Shar Pei
Any Hybrid, I'd NEVER purchase a hybrid, they make me crazy! No standards no breeding guidelines you never know what your gonna get. If I want a mix I'll go to a shelter.

I know its more than five, but I'm just not a fan of small dogs either. The only small dogs that are ok are terriers, they actually can do a job. The yippy little toy breeds and spoiled little dogs aren't real dogs to me. Real dogs should be able to do something. I know most were bred for jobs, but now all they are is house pets. They're cute for other people, just not me. I like my dogs with a little substance. I also agree about the bully breeds, they tend to be unpredctible.

I am not sure I can come up with 5 but I will try it.

Kangal
Fila Brasileiro
Caucasian Ovcharka

Pretty much any breed that is from another country bred to kill intruders. I really dont feel they have a place in our society here and would always worried they would hurt someone.

He does have a cute face Smile My Grandmother has always had toy poodles. They are always old though and I've never been around any active young toy poodles. I have met some standard poodles that were cool though.
