I'm just going to do this 'cause I watched like a ton of docs and clips on various dog types, and IDK why but I randomly get strangely into odd subjects and I just need to share the information even if no one cares. Going to do it kinda my weird animal thread format since ppl seemed to like that.


So let's see -

Border Collie
Spoiler

- Widely considered by animal scientists and dog experts to be the hands down most intelligent dog breed by a significant margin. Recorded doing varieties of very impressive tricks such as memorizing over 1000 names of toys, doing multiplication math, and bringing some guy on youtube beer from his fridge on command.
- Bred for sheep herding with a few traits that make it stand out for the job - an ability to move quickly in a crouch/stalking position and an intense/intimidating gaze, but also favorite of dog competitions for their athleticism and train-ability
- Not for inexperienced owners, due to their intelligence, curiosity, and high energy they will fuck your shit up if you leave them stuck in a house or apartment with nothing to do especially if not trained well.
- A very healthy and long living breed.

Labradoodle/Goldendoodle
Spoiler
- Kind of a dumb name
- Cross breed of lab(black or retriever) and poodle
- Shares the generally gentle, friendly nature and intelligence/train-ability of the two breeds but with fewer inherited health issues that labs tend to have and generally better health typical of mixed breeds. Also, while labs tend to shed more, the poodle side brings a lower maintenance fur(their fur type can vary from more like lab to more like poodle though) that tends to also bother people with dog allergies less.
- Like both poodles and labs, very popular for above reasons as assistance dogs for disabled people, as well as family pets.

Irish Setter
Spoiler
- Awesome looking
- Bred/used as bird hunting dogs, excellent runners - fast/athletic with high energy, intelligent
- Very people friendly, used as therapy dogs to comfort people with various problems.

Newfoundland
Spoiler
- Giant - up to 6 foot+ long and 200+ lbs, but very gentle and popular as family dogs
- Used as rescue dogs particular to save drowning people as they are a very water loving dog and excellent swimmers
- For same reason as above, popular pets for fishermen

Beagle
Spoiler
- Hunting dogs used in particular for their excellent noses and short legs allowing them to keep their nose to the ground and move through heavier brush
- Very old breed, with most health issues and aggression completely bred out, with a long life expectancy for their size
- Extremely friendly and affectionate with people
- Love food...a little too much and owners have to be careful to feed them controlled amounts as they will eat until they're obese.

Jack and Parson Russell Terriers
Spoiler
- I have a Parson : )
- Renowned/notorious for their playful, feisty, energetic, curious/trouble making personality (Very apparent let me tell you)
- Bred and used for rodent, fox, and badger hunting their bodies are ideal for getting into small holes
- While terriers in general tend to have issues with other dogs, the Jack and Parson are on the less extreme side and should have no issues with proper training and exposure while young, and are also very affectionate and friendly with people.
- Jacks have retained their popularity as a working/hunting dog, while Parsons due to their longer legs and running/jumping ability have become very popular as a competition/show dog.

Pembroke Welsh Corgi
Spoiler
- Corgi is Welsh for "dwarf dog".
- Bred originally as herding dogs, they have become popular companion/family dogs and show dogs
- Very social and affectionate as well as eager to please, they have a tendency to follow their owners around as well as seeking attention from pretty much anyone
- Like many herding dogs, very highly ranked for dog intelligence


If there's any interest I might do a few posts of some of the most weird, impressive, scary, etc. types of dogs too. I've read that dogs have arguably the highest diversity of physical and mental traits within a species and are somewhat unique in how tweak-able they are via breeding. They've been a major part of human affairs throughout history, with some societies being highly dependent on them for protection, hunting, and herding. Even in the modern world, dogs are still better than anything humans have come up with - unless you count them as a human invention which to some extent they are - for many tasks in a wide variety of fields of work.

So yeah, while I've always liked dogs and have had one in my family since birth, I'm on a dog kick right now.

Border collie is smarter than german shephard according to pmuch everyone. This is like that other thread you posted a "huge" cat or whatever and the one I posted was still significantly larger.

Also not a fan of GS' sloped backs and they're one of the dogs more likely to attack/bite humans.

Not that they're a bad breed, they're awesome for quite a few jobs, but they're not somehow the golden standard of what a dog should be.

I didn't say they were the smartest, I said they're smart as fuck. It's the perfect combination of the attributes I listed that makes them master race. While border collies are very intelligent dogs they are harder to train and lack the discipline that GSD have, you can't leave them inside the house while you're out because they get bored and are likely to ruin shit. They also don't do well around children because they try to herd them.

Any dog that isn't trained and socialised properly is more likely to attack humans, that blame falls on the owner not the breed.

This is James Joyce. James is my Jaguar. Did you know their bite is twice as strong as a lions bite? They can crack even a turtle with ease, they don't need to go for the throat, they can just open up your skull. Now why pick a Jaguar and not a Tiger? Or a Lion? Tigers can swim. Cheetas can run very fast. Leopards are really great at climbing. Jaguars can do all three. There's no way to hide, nowhere to go. He's an ambusher, that's why the natives literally called him 'one jump death'. He's more muscular than other cats, just look at those solid and thick legs. He's the alpha predator in his environment, other than Lion or Tigers who are bigger, but they're threatened by spotted hyenas who usually hunt in packs. I've read a shitload about big cats and made the informed decision that if I were too keep one as a pet, this one would be it.

German Shephards also get bored and destructive when not trained early/well and exercised/given a job. Maybe to a lesser extent, but they have other problems.

And no, some dogs are more prone to aggressive behavior even though obviously all dogs can potentially be aggressive if treated poorly. Sometimes, the owner isn't at fault either - there can be factors outside the dog-owner relationship that cause a dog to react aggressively. German Shepherds are used in police/military/guard dog work to some degree because they can and will assault humans and of course, due to their size and strength, can fuck people up rather than just scare them like many other breeds. They're considered one of the most dangerous breeds for good reason. Just like Border Collies, if you don't need them for a job they're not the best choice as just your average house pets. There are other breeds that are loyal and intelligent that aren't as risky(and live longer, as german shepherds have a spotty breeding history and are prone to health issues).

Mainly though, none of the dogs I listed are "poverty dog breeds" just 'cause you have some different favorite that happens to not be that special.

No shit, they're being trained to do that. They're called a working breed for a reason.

That's why you go to a breeder with a good reputation or have a vet check them out before adopting

That's the thing, if you train a gsd properly they are the perfect dog. A border collie on the other hand will always require mental stimulation.

Dangerous =/= aggression, statistically speaking the breeds that are most likely to be human aggressive are the dachshund, the chihuahua and the jack russel terrier.

You're right here, refer to the above quote.

The owner is always at fault if the dog hasn't been trained and socialised properly, have you ever even owned a dog?

There is no breed as faithful and smart as the German Shepherd. It's their unyielding faith towards their owners and desire to please that makes them the best at just about everything they do. If you train your dog to attack, guess what, they're gonna fucking attack. It goes for all breeds.

There is no perfect dog, it depends on what you want. A german shepherd will not match other dogs in what they were bred for. If you want loyalty, yes a german shephard is one of many options. Loyalty+intelligence and trainability, that narrows it down more but they're still contending with labs and dobermans who also combine those traits while also being more affectionate.

Aggression + size/strength = dangerousness. For a large breed they're one of the more aggressive, and they also have one of the more powerful bites. That's why they are one of the most commonly reported.

Smaller breeds do tend to bite more, but it's more often out of a fear/defensive mindset due to their small size and thus people being relatively larger and more intimidating. So it's not only less lethal due to their size, but they're usually doing it more to keep someone away and not as an actual attack on the person.

I didn't say the owner wasn't at fault if the dog hasn't been trained and socialized properly. Dogs are still animals with strong instincts, even with a good owner shit can happen. Some dog breeds, aggression has been intentionally bred out, others it's left in or even bred for.

I've owned many types of dogs/been around a shit ton of different breeds,  And I found german shepards to be one of the most aggressive by quite a margin.  They are extremely loyal but they do require more training than your typical dogs.

Also they shed like crazy which fucking sucks.  Which is why I like my current dog most, no shedding (except it's a bit of a pussy).  Portuguese water dog.
I'm always right.
