  1. That's why I put it as N/A as I realised it was basically a mutt. You can look it up though, there's plenty of info on it. It's often also called the American Alsatian and they are trying to breed it to recreate a domesticated version of the extinct dire wolf
  2. Thanks for all the info. I'll be sure to add he other health issues and change the name
  3. Thank you for all the help. I think I've narrowed down the list of dogs that I want ideally to the cane Corso, Rottweiler, Scott type American Bulldog or German shepherd. I like a lot of the characteristics of the Anatolian shepherd and the boerboel, however I don't know if I'd be a suitable owner for those breeds. I understand that in terms of both looks and temperament these dogs are all different, however I'm not really using the table too much to choose a breed anymore, I'm more so just doing it as I enjoy making the table and learning about these dog breeds. I really appreciate all the fe
  4. Thanks for the info Anne. On this table I am trying to keep it very factual and measurable. When I first started looking at all these breeds it was around December last year and my first criteria was size, however I have further researched these breeds into areas such as temperament. Whilst there are a lot of dogs on this list, I have no intention of owning many of them, however I still wanted to put them on my table due to similar shared physical characteristics, as I wish to make the table as extensive as I can with these breeds. Do you have any suggestions for reliable websites that have in

  6. Hi all, I have recently been making a table in order to decide what dog breed is right for my family, but also just as a bit of a hobby. I figured I'd share it on this forum in order to hopefully get some info as to what websites are reliable to collect information from to complete the table, or any information that may go well with the table that I have not already put on there, or any dog breeds that are similar to the ones displayed. Any help would be greatly appreciated. :D If you are unsure what all the slashes and N/A's mean, the slashes are for dogs that I have been unable to find an
  7. An Airedale would fit a lot, however not all of your wants. They can be very property protective, however as it is with every breed it varies between individual dogs. The show coat for the Airedale is high maintenance, however if you shave them seasonally and brush them occasionally you will find little to no hair in your house. i have had an aussie bulldog that sheds far more than my current Airedale. If introduced to chickens when they are smaller then the chickens, they seem to get along fine with them and leave them alone, however i would not recommend getting chickens with an Airedale if
  8. Thank you all for the information regarding the horses. I never really considered horses as a problem as I intended to socialise my dog at a young age with a friends horses to get him used to them, however after hearing about all the terrible things that have happened to all of your dogs/horses we may need to think about getting some better fencing
  9. He will be living on a three acre property, however predominantly within the acre and a bit that is fenced. The fenced are pretty typical farm fences, only about 1.2 metres high. There will be someone home pretty much all day, and in terms of young kids there is a 5 yo and a 3 yo that although young have quite a lot of dog experience. In terms of dog training I have never ventured far away from simple commands, eg. Sit, lye down, on your mat, crawl, out and a few more. He would spend most of the day outside with our other dog, however would come inside to sit I front of the fire after dinner u
  10. I'm not worried about livestock as although we have a couple of acres and farm like fencing, we live relatively close to suburbia and the only farm animals are a couple of horses, however I do understand what you mean about how I should never trust a dog alone to stay inside your fencing, especially with farm fencing
  11. I have owned dogs that are curious of what's outside of their homes, however I have never owned one with such a drive to get out. That husky sure sounds like it was an explorer!
  12. The neighbours wouldn't be a problem, as they live on the opposite corner of their block, and are friendly and love dogs. The thing that I'd be most worried about would be that the road we are on is a main road, and they could potentially get hit by a car????. The dogs would sleep in a kennel just out in the yard, however if you think that this would be inadequate for many of these breeds I'm sure we could make other arrangements like building a room/run for them. Also, whilst the puppy is really little, it will sleep in the laundry, however this will just be for the first few months Why c
