    Somebody posted this pic of a dog they rescued on twitter a while back. I asked them what kind it was, but they never replied. I'm getting to the point where I'm ready to get another dog after losing mine a couple years ago. Just looking at some different breeds.

    Looks like a Labrador/Pit Bull Terrier mix to me.

    Hard to tell at that age, but the paws look "medium" 20 lb.s more or less. bit small for a lab, imho.

    It kinda looks like a labrador

    What kind of personality are you looking for in a dog?
    Do you live in the country with room for dog to run or in town?
    Do you hunt if so for what?
    Are you looking for a dog to have a specific job or a companion?

    Answering these questions will help you to decide on a good fit for you and or family.

    Hard to tell from one pic but I see some beagle or hound possibly.
    Cute little fvcker though.

    Personally, I prefer mixed breeds to pure breds.

    I live in the city, but I have a decent sized back yard that's fenced in, so it could run around. I don't hunt, and the dog will be a companion for my girlfriend and I.

    My gf wants more of a lap dog. We had a Jack Russell terrier, so she wants something about that size. I'm on board with that, buy temprament is very important to me. I loved our Jack Russell to death, but there were times when we would go to pick it up and it would snap at us. I'm sure training would play a big role in that, but I had a Yorkie (which is what my gf wants to get) when I was a kid and it was the same way, so I'm guessing that terriers are a little more tempremental.

    If it were up to me I would get a beagle. I also had one of those growing up and it was the most mellow dog I've ever seen. It never bit or even growled at anyone in its life. Those aren't lap dogs though when full grown, so that's a drawback as far as my gf is concerned. I've seen mini beagles, but those are pretty pricey.

    I just noticed that dog in the pic I attached and thought it looked like a good dog if it stayed that size, buy obviously a lab won't!

    You've really got to check out the health issues of the breed too.
    Pure bred will have more issues than a mix for example.
    Chances are the right dog will find you.
    Go rescue.

    I my self have two jack Russell's. The older one is an awsome dog but does like to back talk a little. They both love to hunt rodents and if I lived in town it wouldn't work well as they like to be free. The younger one is an awsome dog but no matter what is very high strong. Will probably have Jack's the rest of my life I just seem to have a connection with that bread in particular.
    Also I have a German short hair that has turned out to be a great dog. She hunts and retrieves almost without training. These dogs are beautiful and fun to watch when they hunt they have great personality and very loyal. The bread in general needs to be able to run free or they become trouble makers. Like I said though I live in the sticks so the plenty of room to run.

    I've had labs, chow, pit bull, jack Russell's, german short hair, colly and several muts. They've all been petty good dogs.

    My dad told me when I was a kid that my dog ran away. Later found out that this one nipped him and well think you can figure that story out.

    From my experience the smaller the dog the more likely they are meaner. Larger breeds are usually more mellow.
    We have had several breeds over the years and now we have a 3 yr old lab. He is half American/half English and is very big but the smartest and most gentle dog ever.
    He also thinks he is a lap dog as well.

    If you do get one from your local shelter, you can be sure they're usually really good at identifying breeds just from examining them (if they don't happen to already know specifically from owners that bring them in). I recently rescued a 6 month old pup and was also puzzled at her make up because she looked like a breed I had never seen before, and that ended up being the case (something called "Basenji"), and though they had dna tests in her case, it was still helpful to have the handler point out the visual qualities for me, she truly knew her stuff.

    Good luck and be sure to share some pics when/if you get one, JimiRules!

    When we first got our Jack Russell we lived in a townhouse with a super small back yard. She wasn't happy with that at all. A few months later we moved to our house and the fenced in backyard was great. She loved running around back there.

    I have nothing against Jack Russells. I loved the one I had to death. I'd get another one, but I think maybe it would be too soon for that breed. I'm still leaning towards a Beagle myself.
