Okay, so this one probably belongs on the rpd.breeds, but I thought y'all might enjoy it.
Went to the vet today to pick up something really quickly, and found one huge, hairy beast all sprawled out on the floor. After I was done, I asked the owner if I could pet him, and she gave me permission. I got a very nice kiss on my nose in return.
Looking at him, he seemed a bit like a Saint, but the wrong color, and with tight flews. His coat was long, dark tan, a little red and black, with lots of black. Had a black mask too. His owner said that the coat on the breed is generally not that black, and that the black tips on his coat are just really prominent.
Turns out, he's 11 1/2 years old, and absolutely wonderful with all living critters. He gave me a couple more kisses right before I left, and gave me that 'Hey, where are you going? Pet me some more.' look.

My last bad breed misidentification: I identified some dogs as Irish Wolfhounds. Turns out, they were Scottish Deerhound.

I would say anatolian shepherd but the friendly with all wouldn't apply to that breed in most cases. The size the coloration sure fits the bill.
I guess I have to wait until tomorrow to hear what he was?

sounds like a Leonberger

Yeppers. Though frankly it is one breed I have really rarely, rarely heard of. I have heard of it mentioned but never have seen one to behold.

I REALLY like them. I have known a few and when we were in Italy this summer, we had a pair in a yard adjacent to our parking area. They would greet us with play bows every time we arrived - very charming.

This was my first Leo, and gawd, he's a love! So mellow and sweet, and just beautiful. If the he is a good example of the breed (and it sounds like he is), I just might have to add it to my growing list of 'Dogs I must have some day'.

I know what you mean. I big, soft, huggable dog with a lovely personality - what more could anyone want? I think they are very attractive as well - that color, that mask - just gorgeous. Wasn't there a TV dog named "Dreyfus"? I thought I had read that he was a Saint/Golden mix, but now that I think about it, he did look like a Leo..
