This is an experiment–I’ll be creating a database for my puppies.about.com site with some basics about the various breeds. My colleague at the dogs.about.com site already has wonderful breed profiles and I don’t want to duplicate her work. So instead, I’d love to get your input–and please SHARE SHARE SHARE this over the blog-osphere and Facebook and Twitterverse to get pet people’s input.
In the comments section, I’d love for you to state your dog’s breed — if s/he’s a mix, and you know the combo, include that. And then please describe your dog’s personality. Finally, say whether this an expected personality for the breed.
So for Magic, I’d say he’s a German Shepherd. He’s confident, cautious of strangers, incredibly devoted/bonded to my husband and me, and driven to fetch and sniff. I’d say that all but the last (fetch and sniff) are considered German Shepherd traits. For an example of Magic’s single-minded focus on fetch (and STACK) check out the video, below.
Your turn! Oh, and if I end up using your quote I’ll include your pet’s name (and yours if you like) in the article!
I love hearing from you, so please share comments and questions. Do you have an ASK AMY question you’d like answered–post in the comments.
