Just wondering what breeds you guys really like out there. I'm a dog lover and it's rare that I meet any dogs that I seriously dislike.

My favorites are, in no particular ranking.
German Shephards - A well bred GSD is regal and a powerful working dog. There's just something about german shephards that project power and dignity all at the same time.
Labradors - I haven't met a lab yet that wasn't a totally affectionate tongue machine.
Doberman pinscher - Dobermans are the F-16's of the doggy world. They are sleak and always ready for action. I like the temperment in a well bred/obedient doberman as well.
Mini pinscher - I would have never have known about this breed if I didn't adopt one by chance myself. These guys are little clowns that get into trouble a lot. Anyone that owns one must have a sense of humor.
English Mastiff - something adorable about a 200lb lap dog. greyhounds - They run real fast Emotion: smile
Dogs I dislike..
Depends on the individual dog but i've had bad experiences with chow chows and chihuahuas. I tend to avoid both breeds but i've seen some gems.

Just wondering what breeds you guys really like out there.

What an irresistable question.
I like friendly dogs. Shy dogs. Exuberant dogs. Gutsy dogs. Affectionate dogs. Playful dogs. Relaxed dogs. Regal dogs. Zoomie dogs. Busy dogs. Concentrating dogs. Con dogs scamming me for some attention or a treat. Superior showdogs, Earnest working dogs. Loyal family dogs.
Of all breeds. I've never seen a dog that
didn't appeal to me on some level, never seen a dog that I found ugly.
I don't like aggressive dogs.
Breed - doesn't really enter into it, though I admit I am wary of pit-bullish and amstaff-ish looking dogs. Hanging around this newsgroup and getting to "know" a few PBs vicariously has been useful.
But I HAVE an Airedale Terrier because my husband
is hooked on the breed and I enjoy working with a
dog with a mind of her own.

I've never met a dog I didn't like for one reason or another. I know that when I was a kid I used to get chased and bit in the ankles by a couple of Poms but I've also met nice Poms... Our old neighbors used to have a Rottie that used to terrorize our dog, but in general I love Rotts.

I think the thing that makes me love certain dogs (like my dachshund, Rusty) is if they have spunk. Rusty is a little 14 pound dog with tiny little legs, but when he sees a greyhound at the dog park, he will chase it like he could keep up any day! That's what I love about my pup (among other things - he's just an awesome dog!!!).

American Pit Bull Terriers are my most favorite, but Also I like many Hunting breeds bred for confidence, working and companionship. Like Redbones, Blueticks , Blackmouth currs even Daschunds

Dogs I can't stand are small useless foo - foo types.

I have to agree with this, i'm naturally and maybe stereotypically suspicious of pit bills I meet. Mainly because the people that often have these dogs are "tough guy" types who don't have a clue. These pits end up being ill socialized and unpredictable but i've also met the gentle pit raised by a caring owner. I guess it varies quite a lot.
Another "breed" I like seeing but would NEVER own one is a wolf-hybrid. These dogs are so unpredictable but if socialized/bred right they combine the looks and intelligence of a wolf with the better qualities of a dog. Ethically speaking, the world probably needs less of them because they are so unpredictable and people have them for the wrong reasons.
