    I grew up with dobies, beaucerons, a bouvier, and a golden retriever (not all at the same time, haha), as well as a variety of mixes that came to us as strays.

    We currently, besides our APBTs, have a retriever mix, a beagle/chow mix, a cocker spaniel mix, and another mixed breed. I lost my boy, Ben, in Nov. of last year, sadly (looked to be a shepherd mix, but I dunno)

    From age 5 to 18, we had a long-haired German Shepherd, Baron. Within that time was another coal black German Shepherd, Rip; and a Doberman - Arco - that I put a CD on.

    Then we had a Rottweiler, Dieter, which ended up being my dog. Put a CDX on him. After that was the Am Staf and there have been several since that first one.

    Grew up with shelties, a collie, a black lab, and a husky, got my first bulldog when I turned 17 and haven't even considered owning another breed in almost 20 years. Doubt I'll ever own another breed, you never really know for sure but more than likely not...lol

    We haven't owned all that many that I can remember. From what I can we have owned some sort of black herding mix breed, Spike. Commando, a Red Heeler. Toga, Ollie and Guage, Ollie was a American Staffy and the other two were SBTs. I did own Leo for a while, he's recently found a new home, a SBT.

    So, not a whole lot! It seems like a lot but none of these dogs were kept till a old age except for Toga. She lived with all these dogs at one stage except for Guage and Leo. She had passed on by the time Guage came in to my life.

    Now I just own a Kelpie x and a Lab x and I'm quite happy with that.

    Growing up we had Maxi. We were told she was a Schipperke Chow mix...while I definitely see the Schipperke traits, I'm not convinced on the Chow part...I think we were told that because her tongue was black and until recently we thought only Chows had that trait.

    My parents made the decision to put her down in November of 2011-she was almost 17.

    When I moved to Florida my husband reacquired a dog he'd previously rehomed. Sidney was his before he left for the military, when he left he gave them to "friends of the family". A family with kids, other dogs and huge backyard. The family completely fell apart. Husband ended up in rehab. Wife's new boyfriend wasn't keen on dogs. Kids had grown up. Sidney was a special dog, that sort of "old soul" kind of dog. He was some sort of Lab/Setter type dog. All black with little tuffs of red hair here and there (loved the ones on his ears). We had him PTS in 2009 for throat cancer. I'm not sure how old he was.

    My husband rescued/adopted Bailey in 2006. She was running around with her sister in someone's yard. They took both dogs in, looked for their owners and then started asking around to see if anyone wanted a new dog. Another set of friends took her sister-Tiki. And we ended up with Bailey. We believe she's a PB mix. She turned 7 this month.

    Very shortly after moving into our house I wanted another dog. So in April of 2008 we adopted Trooper. We also believe he's a PB mix. This past December he turned 7.

    Had to split it into two post, because it wouldn't let me upload any more pictures.

    In 2009 we were pretty heavy into volunteering at the shelter. Eventually it wasn't enough to go there, we wanted to foster. We fostered Resi for more than a year. Her previous owner had beaten her to a bloody pulp and tried to choke her to death. It was a roller coaster year that ended in his death (a drug deal gone bad), obviously the case against him went away, a couple homes that were interested and then returned her, until April of 2011 when she found her forever home. We guessed she turned 5 in December. We think she's a PB/BMC mix.

    It took me sometime before I could foster again. I swear a piece of my heart went missing when Res left. I knew she was in a better place than we could offer her, I knew her family loved and needed her, but it didn't stop the sadness I felt. In the beginning of 2012 I started talking to my husband about fostering again...this time had to be different. It had to be a dog I KNEW we couldn't keep, so we decided to look into fostering for military members who get deployed. Around the end of June an ad on our work classifieds popped up-looking for just that. We took Harley in July of 2012 and his family will be picking him up on April 13th! He's an English Bulldog-who is not neutered, came from a breeder, is a giant pain in the ass, is too too cute and is 7.

    He's loving it. He's honestly got a great home. Very dog/Staffy savvy so I was comfortable placing him. They are fitness freaks so he gets a decent amount of exercise appropriate for his age and I'm sure he'll get even more as he grows. He's obedience is coming along great! There other dog is really well trained. I see updates of how his life is so I'm happy. I'll get to see him in a month or two which will be nice. I hope you're settling in to your new house! I've been following your thread. Thanks for asking.
