    Hmm this is a tough question.. i pretty much all inlove with every dog (pretty much any animal) i see. I don't think i would own any dog that malts ALOT. but i don't really NOT like them.... Don't really like the look of the pitbull, Nothing against that particular dog i think it's great that there are people out there giving them a chance and giving them a new home. I'm a sucker for pretty much any dog. I SUCK AT THIS QUESTION.

    Edit: Well i thought about it more and i don't really like terrier type dogs. Everyone i've come across is way to hectic for me and don't really look good. If you know what i mean. Wire hair dogs also look weird to me. I prefer big dogs. the bigger the better.

    Oh but there's a world of difference between fluffy and scruffy! Scruffy is cool, fluffy is so totally not!

    I don't like any barking dogs, don't care about the pitch. I mean incessant barking. Like the dogs who bark at other dogs at the park. Drives me nuts! It's a treat to hear Banjo bark because she so rarely does.

    Hmm, normally I just like 'nice' dogs and dislike ill-tempered ones - most of the time this is dictated by the owner but I also believe that poor breeding of any breed can lead to poor temperament. When I say nice, I don't mean friendly. I mean stable, manageable and loyal to their owners.

    But having read through this thread, I agree with the backwards evolution thing. I almost cringe when I see and/or hear (usually you can hear them before you see them) pugs and english bull dogs. The eyes that are part-way pushed out of the sockets, the misshapen teeth... Not for me.

    I would have also said that I don't really believe in small dogs - if you're going to buy a dog I say buy something you can ride on. But, I do have a bit of a soft spot for the foxy poms and the italian greyhounds. For the most part though, I have a cat for when I want something that can fit on my lap and hey if I'm really desperate, Sammy will happily give it go...

    Me - well, terrified of Staffies. Hence, I don't think I like them very much.

    I live in a beachside suburb where most of the older teenagers have a southern cross tattoo, wear thongs, have a racist attitude and an aggressive looking male staffy who is off lead cocking his leg on anything and everything. Add a three inch thick collar covered in studs and you know the message the owner is conveying. There is no control and the dogs are so dominant when approaching other dogs. It is almost like they are baiting for a fight. I become one of those scaredy cats who crosses the road!! Lucky my two are so social and charming (biased, I know) so there has never been any trouble. Well, I guess there couldn't be as I take off across the road, breaking out in a sweat and head for the nearest safe looking spot - like in the middle of a bank hold up!

    Again, probably the owner not the dogs fault. It would appear the kids around here need to have a "tough" looking dog so we think they (the owner) actually has some balls! When you look at our local dog rescue/pound sites these staffies are also the most common up for adoption! Dumped and/or surrended and untrained. I actually wish I wasn't so scared of them - common sense tells me I am being an idiot but fear tells me head for the hills.

    Ratbag, no need to be afraid of staffies, they have lovely natures, but I do know where you are coming from. I can not stand wankers who try to look like something they aren't. And, I have tattoos, but c'mon the southern cross tattoo?? I reckon that is the saddest one around lol, and they have an obviously entire dog (if he is pissing every where lol) to make them look a bit more macho lol!!

    Oskar is an American staffy and he is beautiful natured. I suppose I am biased, but I love every staffy I come across (except stray dogs in general. I always am worried around strays)

    Strangely enough, I don't think I've ever met a scary staffy. Even the entire ones with stud collars. They were one of the few breeds I could count on my old anti-social dog not having an issue with. I love the way they lean against you when you pat them. Banjo quite loves playing rough with them too. Give her 5 minutes with a staffy and she will tackle like the best of them. Mind you, I have never owned a male dog, so maybe that is why we've never had any trouble with the un-trained/un-socialised ones.

    Yes, Oskar's mum, I am sure they are nice natured. If I could only stop my knees knocking and my hands shaking long enough to meet one!! Breaking out in sweat as I type! Might even have to wee!

    I probably need help and a lot of it - scared of staffies, emus, my mother in law and terrorists (not sure when I last met one of those). They all need their balls removed in my opinion.

    Right re tats. Southern cross tattoo = lame.

    I am sooo bloody boring I decided at 40 I wanted to do something a bit naughty as apart from speeding occasionally I'm pretty placid and predictable! Decided on a tattoo and piked it at the last minute! Hopeless, hopeless, hopeless.......... I am a lost cause.

    Generally I like all dogs if they're friendly. Having said that, based on looks I'm not a huge fan of long haired dogs, I much prefer short coat, athletic looking dogs. Not a fan of squished faced dogs like english bulldogs and some mastiffs, don't like wrinkly dogs such as neo mastiffs, but some mastiffs that are less wrinkly or don't have as much of a squished face as some I like, such as mojo, he's fine I was of the opinion for ages that I didn't like any small dogs, but now I have a dachshund .. it was about the only small dog that I could find that looked somewhat like a big dog (dobe) in the face/colouring. I don't like drooly dogs either, or ones with droopy eyes. Not a huge fan of english staffies, though some look alright. Wow.. I didn't realise how fussy I am when it comes to dogs, lol. Oh and I don't like cattle dogs, just really don't like how they look. I've had a near miss with a dobe trying to bite me, and I was scared of that one for a while, but now dobes would have to be my favourite breed. As for dogs I do like, I like ridgebacks, dobes, GSP, hungarian vizsla, danes, anything really with a short coat and similar build to these dogs... all of which are probably unsuited to my lifestyle unfortunately
