|Thanks everyone for your input
I've really only had experience with rescued dogs, mostly mutts but also some purebreds. So far anyways. I want to get into showing and performance sports, but the challenge is finding a good breed for me. I don't have a type or a breed that will fit me 100%, and there are several that will fit me in different ways. And a lot of my wants contradict each other; for instance, I like dogs that are big and cuddly, like a Newfie, but I also like dogs that are active and driven, like a Border Collie. I like dogs that can think for themselves, but I also like people pleasers. I don't even know where to begin prioritizing.
ETA: And I know that Cohen, but my point is not that my dogs are very different breed mixes, but they're very different personalities. For instance, Jane is very laid back and naturally well behaved, but she has a huge stubborn streak. Pip is a little anxious, loves people, but isn't so fond of other dogs. Link is still a puppy, but is the most active and sharp as a whip, but has some focus issues.
