What makes it the best. Does not matter what breed ,cross or mutt. What is the dog used for. Size or even color. What do you guys think. Don't say any dog you all have a favorite. So share.


Mine is so far out of all the dogs I have had is a german short hair. The smartest,kindest easy to train and loves my kids.

So lets hear it.

I have a 2 year old McNab right now that has changed my entire perspective on what a working dog can do.

Never gets tired
Very fast and athletic
Great on a bay
Very fast learner (found his first cripple at 3 1/2 months old)
Not agressive with other dogs
Great with my kid

Only downside is he couldn't cold track like other dogs can, but for what I need his nose have never let me down. I don't see myself ever getting another type of dog.

When it comes to hounds its all about walkers for me.

For a companion/pet/kindof do it all dog dog its a tie for me between the a pit and a heeler. The heeler is definitely more versatile though.

Ford ,Chevy, Dodge. It really depend on what you are going to do with the dog and what is expected. Because what you like in a dog I might hate and what you I like you might hate.
When someone tells you they have the perfect dog....Run and run fast, no the other way.

I took the question as best dog for you, not best dog for everyone. There is no such thing as a best all around dog, that I agree.

Guys that hunt, and by that I mean really hunt, will typically breed what characteristics they prefer into a litter. Now this being said, some types of dogs work great for some, and not so good for others. I know that Duanne has had some good success with his dogs for his style of hunting....and will have a test litter to see if the new pups turn out to see if they're good or not.
Devin has bred similarity to his preferred liking as well.
Trapper2 has done the same thing as well.

Now these are just the tip of the Iceberg. I hope I am not stepping on any toes here. I have never had the pleasure of hunting with any of these guys from here. I have seen videos of Duanne's dogs at work, Ryan's dogs at work as well. Hopefully one day, I will get to do more hunting than typing...lol.

There is no best breed out there. I have had a Mt Cur( loved him), and now I have a Kemmerer cur( love him too). Both are great with kids and mild temperaments. I wish I could have used my GSP to decoy coyotes, he was a machine in the field, never got tired. I'd like to get a GSP/ cross someday to see how they'd work. The guy I sold my GSP to has a wirehaired dog that I think would be an awesome litter, but I doubt he'd think so....lol

Gonzaga, the guys who run hogs in Texas use a lot of bird dog and bird dog crosses, mostly GSPs x with BMC.

I have had a couple GSPs and several Plotts that would qualify for a favorite, but my old lead dog right now, Plott hound Bullseye, would be my all time favorite. He is a great hound and so laid back around the yard. He is all out on track and at the tree, but isn't obnoxious in the box or on the chain. Well mannered and easy to train.

I've got two dogs, both mutts. One is 1/2 pit bull 1/2 mtn cur. He's good with the kids, smart, obedient and loves to hunt but can't hold still to save his life unless he's sitting on stand or sleeping. We let him in the house sometimes and he just doesn't know what to do with himself. He also needs a shorter tail ;-).

The other is 1/2 German Short Hair Pointer 1/2 ? (the owner said he thought it was Border Collie) She's 5-1/2 months now and I had her hunting quail this year. She retrieve's and 1/2 points birds. I've been nothing but happy with her and how fast she's picked it up. She's great with the kids and just loves the attention and being around people. I'd definitely get another GSP for a bird dog/family pet.
