    There aren't really breeds I don't like, there are a fair few I wouldn't own - in saying that I will happily foster those breeds.

    That said, there are a lot of behavioural traits that I cannot stand!

    I'm not fond of dogs that have owners that let them behave badly or encourage bad behavoir.

    I'm not fond of dogs that slobber on me either.

    And I'm really not fond of dogs that cock their leg on my stuff - hence definite preference for girl dogs.

    As a whole breed - I'm not particularly fond of golden retirevers or labradors because most of them have bad owners, so the dogs jump on you (usually after they've rolled in a mud puddle), try to steal your food, hump you and your dog and steal your dog's toys - though my dog does get her own back there. And they're big dogs so it's harder to forgive being bruised, scratched, slobbered on and covered in mud.

    Not fond of beagles - despite my neighbours having them. I know one I like but mostly they're horrid and again - it's usually the owner's fault.

    And I had a bad experience with a cocker spaniel when I was little - very very persistant crotch sniffer. Nasty. So not fond of those.

    Also wary of any dog I think that has the jaws and potential to kill me if it wants. So definitely wary of the Rotties, pitbulls/am staffs, and big dogs that lunge, bark and growl at me. However I've seen what Frosty does to marrow bones - so I ought to be scared of her. I've got a rottie living over my back fence who is alternately a big sook and loves pats but lunges, barks and growls in a most unfriendly manner when I try to leave. Or if I say hello through the back fence. I think I could get away with calling that one's bluff but given the damage she could do if I was wrong, it's a bit of a hard call.

    I did give her a pat at her front fence once and she went off when I left but didn't jump the fence, and she could have. She shouldn't have been out there, and she'd really like to come with me and Frosty - who thinks she's great - to the oval.

    There are some dog breeds that I don't like in the sense that I wouldn't own one, but would still pet them and might still think they're cute. It's mostly small companion breeds like chihuahuas.

    I am not a fan of some bull type breeds. I do however like the Staffy and I like the attitude of the Bully but not their look.

    I don't really like timid and nervous breeds such as Iggy's and I am not a huge fan of most giant breeds.

    If I ever get any more dogs after my boys and Olivia have passed, I will either go for a Toy Poodle or a Griff..... or maybe a little Silky or Yorkie (providing they're not yappers).

    Not a big fan of whippets but like greyhounds, go figure!
    Chinese crested are ugly but I sort of like them- though i don't think I'd have one as a pet

    For a while I wasn't certain about my Gordon Setter, but at 4yo she has settled nicely, especially after her recent de-sexing. The change is amazing. So I would have to say I don't like slow maturing breeds for the first 3-4 years.

    But I have no preference for big or small dogs. My mums L-H Tri-Coloured Chi is adorable. But then she's raised him as a dog. Not a baby. He is a secure, confident little man who gets on with other dogs, kids etc.
