The ever loyal, confident and smart German Sheppard makes the list at #2. My boy, Luke was all of the above, plus he was a constant companion and protector for my 2 boys while they were growing up.
My girl, Josie is friendly, active (sometimes too much) and extremely outgoing, all the traits of a lab. She loves everything and everybody, except for cats and squirrels, for some reason squirrels just rub her the wrong way.
