Looking for breed suggestions?

I am wanting to get a puppy. I live on 200 acres. With cows, chickens, horses, pigs, ect. We have a yorkie, border collie, dacshund, and terrier mix. I am looking for a large breed dog with short hair. I've thought about wiemeriner, catahoula, and German short haired pointers. I want a nice looking dog to ride around with me in my truck. Thanks for suggestions.

    Large, farm type dog with short hair.. Maybe a Rottweiler? They were originally bred as herding dogs. They are also loving guard dogs who can protect your animals and home. The dogs you mentioned are all hunting dogs. If that's your thing then the Catahoula and GSP are good, but when I think Weimaraner I always think of them as dogs who would be happier around water.

    Catahoula's are gorgeous. I love their markings, the variety of colors they come in, and the possibility of having one or both eyes blue.

    Pittbulls are awesome dogs!!! I used to not like the breed but now I do!! I have 3 myself they are all very sweet to each other and everyone the meet. They play with neighbor dogs and cuddle with my cat

    They are pretty

    Loyal

    Protective of the home

    Actually used to be nicknamed the nanny because they are so good with kids

    Research them!! If these dogs are properly trained and socialized they are amazing dogs

    Bad owners make bad dogs. Regardless of the breed

    IMO Doberman Pinschers are a really nice looking dog, large and with short hair. They're loyal and fearless, so I'm sure they'll love to ride around in your truck with you.

    German Shepered

    Golden Retrievier

    Giant Shnousar

    Japanese Akita

    I love the look of Japanese Akitas and it really matters on how you raise the pup, so dont loose hope, if you like the look of this breed, on getting one because of the sterio types labled on them. Best of luck :)
