Great white shark. What better way to deal with your enemies than feeding them to your pet shark?

People have never successfully kept great whites in captivity... Good luck

Ah yes, I forgot one! Axolotl of course!
The dream pets I already have are
All of my fish. I've wanted fish forever!
My German Shepherd, and my pitbull puppy!
My cats. I'm so thankful for them, I almost lost all 4 this spring. I only lost one. He got viral feline leukemia, and my other cats weren't vaccinated. So so lucky that they didn't get it, too.

I’d want a tamed eagle that will come to me when it’s called and will sit on my shoulders to guard me. Or maybe a blue tongue skink. I’ve been wanting one for a while

That would be really cool. I'd get a toucan for protection. Honestly, who's gonna mess with that beak?

Great pyrenees dog
I used to foster these, and love them. Awesome dogs, definitely in that "nothing on the counters is safe" category. The one I had the hardest time sending on to their forever home (Ben) and I would go out on walks every day. If I kept him out longer than he'd want to be gone for, he'd stop and lay down. He was done. I had to call my wife a few times to get her to bring our FJ and pick us up, cause that pup was not budging.

As for dream pets. My 2 year old Schnauzer, Maxx. I've had 4ish dogs (there was a Samoyed that I took on from somoene who wouldn't care for it, but I wasn't set up for a Sammy myself and couldn't keep him long) not counting the ones I grew up with, I've never had a dog that I feel about the way I do Maxx. Closest thing I'll ever have to a son (my baby making years are behind me). We've hiked up 14,000 ft mountains together already. He "helps" me do water changes, and I'll sit him in my lap and we'll watch the fish. We have play time every day on top of going for 3- 4 mile walks. I understand his body language well enough that we can "talk." He's pretty much the best version of having a 4 year old boy.

A dream pet that I already have - my cat Simba, he's so low maintenance, so loving, constant source of joy in my life, I'm really so lucky I got him. So many cats have behaviour problems, health problems, etc., especially when you get them as adults as I did with him. I'm so greatful for my intuition or just plain luck that day when I was scrolling the ads for cats being given away and I stopped at this rather unassuming cat and thought, yeah, this sounds like my type of cat .

Realistic ones that I'm actually planning to get in a forseeable future - a nicely scaped cube tank with red plants and blue shrimp, and later some Otocincli; I'd like to get O. cocama, but it seems it's not an option in my country, pity, those are pretty.

Unrealistic one that would require owning a home big enough for me to avoid the noise caused by such pet - a talking parrot, the more intelligent the better. I just find it so fascinating, but I hate noise so I'd probably go insane .

I would really love a horse. Besides aquatic critters, I currently have 3 Hog Island Boas, 4 Burmese pythons (2 caramel, 2 het caramel), leopard geckos, and an American toad.

Yeah, I love great pyrenees. When I was little, my dad brought one that he found abandoned at work.
She had a lot of issues, like a sezure condition, as well as not being trained at all (as you probably know, it's super hard to train adults)
I loved that dog! If I ever have enough room and money for one, I would love to have one again.
I think the hardest thing is grooming. They have so much hair!!

About the closest you can get is a black throat monitor. They get utterly MASSIVE, but they're much more friendly (and available) than a komodo. Forgot to mention a BTM on my list!

I got chased by a bengal Monitor one morning in Afghanistan. It wasn't too long after sunrise, and I assume it was sunning itself on the step right outside where I was working. It didn't appreciate me stepping on it, and I had to high tail it for about 100 yds before it let me go.

My Dutchie's mom was a GP. His dad was a pittie. That boyo is spectacular. Biggest doofus in the world, cries when I leave home, has to be with me whenever I'm outside, will scootch himself into being the inside spoon at night lol. But, he also stands strong when I need help getting up (I sometimes tumble) and NO ONE gets out of their vehicle without asking me if it's ok lol. His coat is medium so don't have to deal with long hair but it is a double coat so there is still lots of hair floating around lol.
My dream pet has been such since I was 8 and read "Misty of Chincoteague". Bucket list item is to go to the swim one year. And fulfilled dream would be to buy one of the foals. Maybe my grandgirl will get herself one as I sent her the book last year. She's just 7 so there's time for her.

My dream pet that I have had was named Yogi. She was a cat that went hiking with me (backpacking technically). Best cat ever. Very adaptable.
Dream pet that I would want is probably a trained falcon or a tame raccoon lol

Has anyone seen the tame foxes from Russia? They've been effectively domesticated through decades of selectively breeding for friendliness. It was initially part of a behavioral study but now some of them are available as pets, depending on where you are and what your wildlife-owning restrictions look like. They also come in beautiful colors because of some strange mutations that popped up while they were breeding for behavior.

Probably a Bearded Dragon, and a Dwarf Caimen. A Bird-Eater Tarantula would be pretty cool too. Dream pet I already have are my Budgies.

A fluffy cow! One that stays smallish and can be house-trained though. They are the cutest!
