• I have alot of different breed dogs in my neighborhood. I have noticed that Lillie seems to show a preference for shih tzus! She is very friendly to most dogs but for some reason or other, the 3 shih tzus plus 1 bichon frise (who looks somewhat similar to a shih tzu) seem to interest her more. Has anyone else found that your dog shows a preference for a certain breed?

    Just curious-

  • I do not have this experience, but all I can think of now is a white Lilly. . 😃 How cute that Lillie she's attracted to the white color. I wonder if she'd be attracted to a Spitz. Between my two, I don't notice they have a preference to any type of breed - yet.


  • Gezzzz. mine are attracted to white fluffy dogs… but as Prey...gggg They would love nothing better then to be able to "pluck" them bald!!!! My guys likes other sighthounds, but they grew up with them at lure trials... and one of mine fell in love with Silkys... One of mine took issue immediatley to dobes from across a field at a dog show.. and Rotties too.... and she was only 9wks old.... My Mickii thinks that P.Water Dogs are pretty cool and love playing with them at shows in the evening when everyone was out socialization (those of us who stayed on grounds in our RV's)..... She would chase this pup like crazy... and be chased until he would get to rough then she would turn around and scream at the top of her lungs at him... scared the poor thing half to death..... and of course people came running from all corners thinking that some child had be run over by a car...


  • Zahra really likes Siberian Huskies. When she sees one anywhere her tail spins around like a propeller, her ears go back and she jumps up in the face of the Husky. Really weird, this is the only type of dog that I see her do this with.


  • How funny mine likes Siberian Huskies too. At the dog park he loves to play with them and pull on their hair. He also gets very excited when he see's other basenji's at the park, he spots them right away from all the way across the park and goes running.


  • Well, good….at least someone does 😉

    Huskies are shaped just like Basenjis….maybe that's it?


  • Most of my dogs are only excited (happy) about seeing other basenjis. Bella was raised with a black lab as a baby puppy, and she does seem to be attracted to them.

    My dogs really don't like Boxers (too bouncy), or Bulldogs…too much snorting I guess.


  • Mine kinda liked schnauzers. Maybe cause of the size. They definitely don't like Spaniels.
