What about Bostons and Pit Bull breeds? Can we vote for mutts? Mutts are the best :D I voted for bulldog though, love them.

My Jack Russell is very calm. It's the training and routine that shapes a dog's behavior, much like with children.

Rat terriers! They are cute and sturdy like Jack Russells but aren't as hyper!

Um, why is portugese water dog not on the list? Also, I kind of hate the AKC for their apparent strong dislike for mixed breeds. I mean who cares if the dog is a "perfect" picture of the breed, really? mutts are the best.
