Sorry red,they dont interest me one bit,bloke down the road had the most beautiful,friendly american staffy,went mad one day and attacked him out of the blue,i was there,he had to shoot it out the window with a 22.....beautiful dog,i agree with that,but some,especially crossbreeds,have some emotional issues and can react quite aggressivly if scared when woken,ie kid stepping on him in a dark hallway.....something which is basicly the most important thing for me planning on bringing a large dog up with kids as an inside dog......dunno how many times ive heard the greyhound yelp at 2 in the morning with one of the kids accidently kicking him in the dark.....

dobermans are beautiful dogs... but need training... as long as you train it up you should be fine

oh I saw a Aussie bulldog as a very small pup in someone arms a couple of years ago, I remember comparing the differences to the Britsh Bulldogs that we bred when I was a kid, beautifully natured dogs.

Terrible for medical issues thou :( - stupid inbreeding. The Aussie one seem to be helping those issues thou

Sorry to hear about your greyhound mate, I have them myself. Best natured dogs I've ever had.

Not keen on another though? Or just a change?
