My Favorite Dog Breeds

3:16:00 AM

Here are three large dog breeds that I would love to have. I know, they're all big and active dogs and right now, I'm just not ready for them. But when I get to live in a bigger house, it will have a spacious lawn and I will have a Labrador Retriever, a Golden Retriever or a German Shepherd!

Golden Retriever

Golden Retriever

The Golden Retriever is the second most popular dog breed (next to Labrador Retriever) in the world. We are all familiar with popular movie heroes like Shadow (from the movie Homeward Bound) and Air Bud (from the movie of the same title). When I saw Homeward Bound, I instantly wanted my Golden Retriever puppy. Do you remember that scene when Shadow almost didn’t make it?

Golden Retrievers are gentle, friendly, handsome, intelligent.  The breed is a hunter’s loyal companion and a genuine family dog. However, they are energetic dogs who crave for physical activity. They don’t like to mope around doing nothing. They yearn for company, for something to do.  Golden Retrievers can get bored very easily and boredom can lead to behavioral problems.

Because of their affectionate temperament, Golden Retrievers are extremely friendly even with strangers, so if you want a dog who will protect your home, you may want to get another breed. If you want a loving companion to spend most of your days with, a Golden Retriever will never disappoint you.

German Shepherd

German Shepherd

Our neighbor has three German Shepherds and each time I pass by their gate, I dare not breathe. Such big dogs! Such commanding presence! Oh, how I’d like to have one of my own.

German Shepherds are intelligent, active, sociable and loving breed. Because of their size, appearance, strength, and intelligence, this breed is usually used for police and rescue operations but they are also great as family dogs. 

In fact, they are ideal as family protectors especially when given a professional training. However, they need to be trained early, starting in their pup years.

Labrador Retriever

Labrador Retriever

The Labrador Retriever is the most popular dog breed. Back in the 17th century, Labradors were used as fishermen companions. They are big, strong, and fine-looking dogs that will capture anyone’s attention. 

Labrador Retrievers are instinctively fond of water too!  They love to swim so it’s best for them to live near the water. They are very playful and have lots of energy.  Just like Golden Retrievers, Labradors are gentle, friendly, kind and very generous. Because of their loving nature, they are affectionate with everybody- children, other animals, and even strangers.
