    Another site for names is www.babynames.com type in german girl dog names, etc. You get all kinds of names, like this litter now I just had born is the M litter, so type in M female or males, get some good names.

    Also www.dogbreedinfo.com is good site.
    Look on my site Favorite Links, alot of dog sites for information of breeds etc. I found alot of them and put on Favorite Links page.

    Though I have Labs by choice, I still have resqued other pure breds and mixed breeds to find them good homes. I strongly recomend anyone looking for a new dog to visit your local animal shelter. I can not express that enough. I have even driven 4 hours away to resque a puppy. Sheplovr, You are so right on your quote!!!!

    Hi, I'm familiar with bulletin boards, but brand new to this one. I will soon be moving to the country, where I can once again have a dog (dogs). I really don't care about a pure breed, or should I say I don't need "papers".
    I have had: a dalmation, beagle, cocker, ex-racer greyhound (adopted), in my lifetime. I want a dog for the following:
    Companionship/pet, and security. I'm not looking for a heavily-armored guard dog. Just one that will bark when something is wrong. I'll be in a very rural area and would like to keep thieves/tresspassers away without having a problem with a "biting dog".
    I am more than willing to go to a shelter and get a dog; even mixed breeds are fine. I am leaning toward a dalmation and a beagle.
    Any input would be appreciated.
    Thank you'

    I have one pure breed and 1 mix that I adopted from the Humane Society and the mix has been wonderful. She has such a great temperament and has been much easier to train than the purebreed. I am def. going to adopt my next dog from a shelter. I got my mix jada when she was very young so I was able to work with her and train her from the beginning. There are lots of wonderful dogs at shelters and rescues that need new homes. you just need to find the one that fits your lifestyle.

    great idea Dax!!! I help with fostering and rescue in Missouri. We recommend also petfinder.com and shelterfinder.com. It is amazing how many purebreds are taken to the dog pounds and shelters.

    beagles are great little country dogs!! I love them. Just watch for thieves. I have a german shepherd (he looks scary and barks) and two chihuahuas. LOL the five pound chihuahua is the biter!!
