Our dog is old 11 yr old over weight lab , He has a hard time getting around, he has arthritis really bad and if the SHTF and we had to leave I would put him down before we leave . I grew up on a farm and we had to put animals down all the time when I was a kid from being hit by cars on the hard road to getting into rat poison . I would not be taking him with me . I wont be looking for another animal in all honesty it just another mouth to have to feed .
I know I sound like a hard ass putting my own animal down but sometimes its just the right thing to do it a particular situation, and with his particular situation it would be best .

I've got a 90lb boxer. He's an awesome watchdog, as he barks loud and deep and looks scary through the window. Gentle as a bunny with my 10 month old son, too. Not a good attack dog, though no dog is a good attack dog unless trained as such.
His problem in a SHTF situation is that he needs a coat during our Maine winters, otherwise he'll freeze to death.

That being said, i can't see myself with any other type of dog besides a boxer.

Ive had lots of dogs. Missin my last friend but wont get another one for a while. Been looking at plott hounds. They seem to be a good shtf dog. Somebody mentioned em on another forum I think. 70 pound brindle hounds used to hunt bear and hog. Seem like the ticket.

I have a st Bernard that would be good to strap light supplies on her. And my corgi-chihuahua would be able to hunt rabbits but he prolly wouldn't share. And I'm pretty sure my dogs would give there life to protect me.

I have a Labrador and a Miniature Pincher. Between the two of them nothing goes unnoticed! The Min Pin has a nose that is unbelievable. She also thinks she is a monster. She ran the neighbors 150 Rottweiler down the road her first day here. Luckily Oliver (The Rottie) decided to run instead of getting bitten in the sensitive areas. "LOL!" That is all I can figure out? And both senses people and animals before they get close to the house when they are even inside! And although the Lab is normally very friendly she stands the hair up on her back anytime there is something strange going on or someone comes to the door. So big dogs little dogs! All have an advantage over us when it comes to smell and sensing things.
