I am considering getting a mascot for my papillons and border collies. I want a tall athletic dog. Somewhat built like a whippet, working line border collie, or kelpie (No mastiff, pitbull, or golden ret. builds). Medium length thick hair (I LOVE to groom). Very high toy drive. Can be corrected without getting it’s feeling hurt (No labs or goldens), in other words no soft and submissive dogs. I do not want a lovey dovy affectionate puts its ears back and rolls on its back when you talk to it, but more a dog that when petted and praised stands solid and holds its ears up. I want a dog that can work all day. Easily trained. High energy.
I am considering DDR german shepherds and 3 of the AKC belgian shepherds. What do you think?
I have talked to people at shows when i am not too busy showing my own dogs and everybody says the breed they show is the absolute best and sweetest breed on earth. My problem is I don’t want a too sweet dog.
In other words:
solid temperment.
Does not get feeling hurt.
Medium length thick hair.
High toy/prey drive.
Athletic appearence.
Size between a border collie ans doberman.
