|" ... So my "dream" dog breeds are: American Staffordshire terrier, American Bulldog, Black Russian Terrier, Bull Terrier, Borzoi, Boxer, Black and Tan coonhound, Greater Swiss Mountain dog, German Pinscher, Hovawart, Ibizan hound, Irish Wolfhound ... "
Depending upon how much value you place on your basic "wants", your list will eliminate most of your dream breeds; it will also eliminate most of the breeds suggested by the dog selectors. As I mentioned prior, you're actually off to a decent start...
The more specific and determined you are with what you're looking for, the easier the selection process will become. If you're not all that picky, a rescue dog would seem to be in order!!!
For whatever it's worth (and I'm not suggesting that this is a good choice for you), if you decide to look more seriously into the Black Russian Terrier and need more information, feel free to PM me. Be forewarned that, according to your list, there are 2 immediate caveats:
1) Although the BRT will be very "low shedding", he is certainly not considered to be "low grooming" (and, by the way, one does not normally see "low shedding" and "low grooming" together in a given breed).
2) Also, although a well-bred, well-socialized BRT will be quite comfortable to "be around people", should the need arise, he will be considerably more than "slightly protective".
Again, keep looking,
and best of luck in your search!
