nice looking dog :-)

Right now I'm mostly pulled between going for the adorable, or adorable and dangerous :-)

Any specific reason why a Staffordshire Terrier?
just_ruth From: just_ruth Date: November 16th, 2010 07:11 am (UTC) (Link)
it's a misunderstood breed (better known as "pitbulls") frequently bought for all the wrong reasons and often in need of rescue.

In the right family, they are awesome.

cool, kinda like Rotweilers then? Those also seem to be often misunderstood and misused.

I'd say either border collie (they're working dogs, intensely loyal, and he's been herding Sam his whole life), or pit bull for the reasons listed above.

Yeah border collies both fit the adorable label, and are able to protect their pack. Not so sure on pitbulls. Trying to go for a face that says "I'm adorable"

The more I look at that Rotweiler puppy, the more I want one. My cat would disagree though.

Border collies are awesome dogs, loyal, smart, and protective. And handsome. But the rottweiler does convey the menace that Dean is capable of pretty well too, though.

Exactly, adorable and menacing. Just look at that face...

I say a German Shepherd. Not only are they police dogs and trained to protect and hunt down the bad people, but they are also adorable and loyal. Perfect for Dean!

Or you could go for a Husky. Since they are such beautiful dogs! And normally very pack oriented.

:)

they are kinda cute.:-) Must admit I have a soft spot for Rotweilers. Intelligent, capable of being dangerous, often misunderstood, very protective of their owners and when properly trained, good family dogs. (that and they can look both utterly adorable, and very very dangerous at the same time)
jensenlover89 From: jensenlover89 Date: November 18th, 2010 08:15 pm (UTC) (Link)
I'm all for German Shepherd's mostly because I just adopted one a couple weeks ago!

This is my puppy Sadey :)

Well, while I was looking for dogs, German Shepards definitely came up on the list for most intelligent dogs (starting to think I should have put up on of those as an option on the poll instead of the second breed of beagle. (honestly, though beagles are adorable and they are hunting dogs, I'm not sure they fit the idea I had in my mind for the fic. A German Shepard on the other hand would.

Looking for a breed that not only represents Dean, but that on top of that is both adorable and potentially dangerous. (want a kind of dog that could take down a grown man when needed, but is trustworthy enough to leave to play with a young child)

Oh I didn't mean alone alone, meant, letting the dog play with the kid, while you're close enough to intervene if the dog yelps in pain cause the kid accidentally hurt it and before the dog retaliated*g* But without you sitting practically right next to them.

(in my experience most dogs hurting children, not all, but most, are caused by the kid hurting the dog in some way, which is why it's up to the owner to make sure the kid doesn't do any such thing)

Border. The last one could be Sam.
liliaeth From: liliaeth Date: November 18th, 2010 07:29 am (UTC) (Link)
nah*g*, If Sam were a dog, he'd either be a St Bernard or a Great Dane ;-)

Rottweiler!

Nice to see I'm not the only one who thinks Rotweiler*g* From all I've read they're really misunderstood and the victim of bad publicity.
tracys_dream From: tracys_dream Date: November 18th, 2010 09:03 pm (UTC) (Link)
I agree.
I was attacked by a rotweiler about 10 years ago but in general I still think it is a lovely breed of dog.

A border collie is perfect.
liliaeth From: liliaeth Date: November 18th, 2010 08:29 pm (UTC) (Link)
They did come up as the most intelligent breed of dog, on a list I found.
aerithqoc From: aerithqoc Date: November 18th, 2010 12:39 pm (UTC) (Link)
I would say either a Rottweiler or a Dobermann. I've always thought if the boys got turned into dogs Sam would be a Rottweiler and Dean a Dobermann ^^
liliaeth From: liliaeth Date: November 18th, 2010 08:30 pm (UTC) (Link)
Yeah, but Rottweilers are prettier*eg*
aerithqoc From: aerithqoc Date: November 19th, 2010 10:25 am (UTC) (Link)
No doubt! I bloody love Rottweilers! Got one of my own ^^

I voted for the Tibetan Mastiff.

Here is a paragraph from the American Tibetan Mastiff Association
"This is a highly intelligent breed which has the ability to adapt to a variety of functions, but it is a breed which has been making its own decisions for thousands of years. The Tibetan Mastiff by nature is a guardian dog, and is used in livestock-predator control by some. Their natural instinctive ability makes them an excellent home protector. They are patient with children, when children and puppy are taught to be
considerate of each other."

Check it out and look at photos :)

I voted for a border collie. I did read some comments about pit bulls. Either a border collie or a pit bull. Because I love me some pit bulls. <3

I'm a little late to this party, but what about something mixed breed? The best dogs I've ever had were the one I've got now (lab/husky), who absolutely loves people but defends her territory from other animals ruthlessly, and one my roommate's family had that was german shepherd/collie. That one was very easy to train and incredibly loyal to the family.

I suppose if you went with purebred, I'd go for something in the working dog class. Husky or collie, which are adorable and smart and pack-oriented.
