We really like dogs, too. So. We compiled the following:
The Doberman Pinscher is known to be energetic, watchful, fearless and obedient. Elegant in appearance, of proud carriage, reflecting great nobility and temperament. The breed is notably determined, alert, fearless and intelligent. He is ready to give prompt alarm (and back up that warning) but is also affectionate, obedient and loyal. The breed requires regular exercise, but needs only minimal grooming for his short coat.
This dog looks like Kirk to me. It is a mutt and that seemed to fit. I found it on a site for runaway dogs and I was like, "wow that's appropriate as well." In the pictures he seemed to be wiggling around a lot which also seems appropriate. Look how he is smiling. I put it next to a picture of Kirk to emphasize the similarities.
Although a loving companion, the Greyhound possesses the typical independent spirit of the hound, so patient training is necessary. She enjoys the company of her family as well as other dogs. Due to the Greyhound’s athleticism, she needs daily exercise, but should be kept on leash or in a fenced area due to her tendency to run. Greyhounds are very good-natured and gentle with people of all ages. She is an intelligent breed and uses her own initiative, especially if she believes she's been given pointless instructions.
The Border Collie is prized for its intelligence, extraordinary instinct and working ability. This high-drive breed is extremely energetic, and thrives when he has a job to do and space to run. He uses a direct stare at sheep, known as "the eye", to intimidate while herding, which he does on instinct. He notices every movement of the livestock, and reacts by moving, at times almost imperceptibly, to take advantage of or counter it. Movement of both dog and stock should be calm and steady. He loves his family, but may be somewhat reserved with strangers. When approached, the Border Collie will stand his ground. He will be alert and interested, never showing fear, dullness or resentment.
HOLY CRAP THIS IS A CUTE PUPPY DD:
He's an apricot poodle! Thank you riicchan!
The Poodle, though often equated to the beauty with no brains, is exceptionally smart, active and excels in obedience training. Lively, intelligent, devoted, and obedient, they are good with children and other pets and are often shy with strangers. The miniature poodle is easy to train and enjoys entertaining with tricks. He's often recruited by the circus because of his ability to learn quickly. He wants to be the center of attention and has an amusing personality. He is eager to please – so much so that many owners feel like he understands them when they talk.
He's known for his gait, which is a straightforward trot with light springy action in a sound effortless movement. He is dignified and cheerful, although can get lonely when left alone and should be included in family activities.
True Labrador Retriever temperament is as much a hallmark of the breed as the "otter" tail. The ideal disposition is one of a kindly, outgoing, tractable nature; eager to protect his family and non-aggressive towards man or animal. The Labrador has much that appeals to people; his gentle ways, intelligence, protective nature and adaptability make him an ideal dog.
The Airedale has a sweet disposition, but when challenged, is not afraid to stand up for himself. Obedience training is important for these quick learners, but make sure to keep it interesting – they can get bored easily! They also thrive with daily exercise. Although relatively easy to maintain, the Airedale coat needs regular brushing and stripping.
