Question What breeds like company?

It really depends on the dog its self.

Yeah it may depend on the dog, but i guess all dogs like each others company really, and many dogs are kept as the only dog in the family.

There are some breeds that are more prone to dog aggression,but as the others said it really depends on the individual dog and how well he/she was socialized as a puppy and brought up around other dogs.

Well, I'm no expert, but my Boston Terrier (Scooter) and mini Dachsund (Tinkerbell) get along wonderfully. They're best friends!

my dog is a yorkie schnauzer, they are prone to be very protective. but with socialization from the start my dog is dog and people friendly, but does bark and growl to guard the house and yard and me (we are working on that)

However, my roommates girlfriend has a toy poodle, they are normally quite easy to socialize and get along with everyone, but she never walked it or socialized until it was 1 year old, now it hates every one and everything.

Keep your dog from little dog syndrome which is treating it like a little person or accessory it is all about socializing.

Ugh...I hate when people do this.They think their dog does not need exercise or training,because it is small and then carry it everywhere and don't let it walk or act like a dog...drives me crazy!

The only breed I know that likes dogs - especially its own kind are Italian Greyhound. Beyond that, ya got me. But dogs in general are pretty social.

I totally agree with this. My uncle's girlfriend has a little dog that doesn't get along with other dogs and when she's around new people she pees and poops on the floor (out of fear I guess, it's not because she's "excited"). Her dog is the reason why I asked my aunt to take care of Killer for me.

I have found that after having mice and rats, then Killer and my brother's cat that animals like to have companion. Like everyone else said though, it depends on the dog and they need to be socialized!

most all dogs love having a dog buddy to live with. but no breeds require it.

Being that dogs are pack animals I would think the majority would enjoy the company of other dogs.

There's always exceptions of course.

It's totally on dogs behavior. Some owners made a mistake thinking their original dog needs companion, and getting another dog without much study if it is feasible or would help, sad but some case ending up giving up both dogs.
