Its just a question that came across my mind. Like, having special survival foods, and having all this special gear, and portable stuff, its practically like having a portable house, in a back pack. BUT, how about in a situation when you might actually need it. Like if a plane crashed on an island as in Lost show, or if you accidentally get lost in the wild, who is going to have all this stuff, like 90 days worth of friggin cave food? I get it if you have a bunker in your yard or something, but what else?

Been reading on forums online, there is a talk about the best survival dog. Now that is almost an oxy moron, since a dedicated survivalist would (usually 99% of the time) say that a dog brings you down, since you have to feed it food that a human could take. But amongst dogs, (if you are going to get one anyways) whats the best for a SHTF/ TEOTWAWKI situation?
Survival Dog requirements:
NOT A BIG DOG: In a survival situation you want a dog that is smaller so you don’t have to feed it as much, and so if if gets hurt your can carry it, so MAX weight 60 pounds, for most 30-40 pounds. A lot of people say big guard dog types, but in most situations a small, brave, vigilant watch dog will do. Something to let you know that there’s, say, a mountain lion near your camp, or a person giving off bad vibes nearing you, then you can deal with the situation yourself.
The dog has to be double coated, good/decent in winter, rain, and summer.
NO selective hearing, when the SHTF you don’t want your dog running out on you cause its curious.
NOT a constant barker. Some say that a dog is a good watch dog because it loves the sound of its own voice and barks all the time, but thats just like the boy who cried wolf, if it barks simply because its bored, then you’re not going to trust it when something bads headed your way.
The dog will be a female, so you can figure that into the weight and personality, also, less wandering.
The top said no mutts (mixed dogs of more than two breeds), but if you have a CROSSBREED in mind that you have OWNED and experienced enough to trust, feel free to answer.
Otherwise, just name whatever breed comes to mind and why.
Personally, I was/am thinking the border collie, cause they’re intelligent, small and double coated, but I hear they might have selective hearing (owners this true?) and that they like to bark at everything since they are so sensitive, so I could be wrong.
Let the answers flood in.
