4BeagleThe Beagle is a breed of small-sized hound, similar in appearance to the much larger foxhound. The Beagle is a scent hound, developed primarily for hunting hare.

I just got a beagle and if you think they howl, they don't. My beagle is so loving and only barks or howls when he is aggravated. Beagles deserve to be #1 on this list.

Beagle are the best dog for family with kids. I love beagles! I have 2 beagle their names are River and tank.

5German Shepherd

Sadly I only have 1 at the moment, but at one time I had 3. They may shed, but they are great. Kid friendly, love other pets (we also have 2 cats and a Pug) They will protect you, heard you, love you, snuggle with you, and play with you. Training is all they need. They are so smart that they need to be trained or they will get bored.

Can do everything and is the most loyal and beautiful canine by far and let's not forget intelligence and extremely stoic. But to get the best of your GSD you need to give the best part of yourself back... Do this and you WILL I believe earn these traits unconditionally for a best lifetime gift any human can receive from the best dog on this or any other planet!

They are awesome! We have friends with Shepherds and if it weren't for the shedding we would have one. I want to get one as soon as I can. They are beautiful, playful, strong, loyal, protective, they are great dogs.

These are amazing dogs and they will play snuggle and protect. - Jackjack

11American Pit Bull TerrierThe American Pit Bull Terrier is a dog breed. It is a medium-sized, solidly-built, short-haired dog whose early ancestors came from the British Isles.

After working with animal rescue for many years I have worked with most all different breeds and mixes. The only ones who have ever drawn blood are the little yippie dogs. The pit bull however is one of the most lovable animals I have ever been around. They have funny little personalities and are quite loyal. They at one time were known as "The Nanny Dog" because they were so good with children. I do find this to be true. We rescued a pittie several years ago and she has been one of the BEST dogs we have ever had. She is good with children, other animals (dogs, cats and even rabbits) and will even stand back when one of the other dogs comes and takes her food. I would have expected her to at least be more aggressive with food because she was starving to death (only 24 lbs) when we found her. She lived in the depths of hell before rescued and has been the most wonderful, loving and grateful girl I have ever seen. They are not for everyone - but that goes for any breed. They are ...more

Pit bulls are the most misunderstood dig of all time, the reason being their strength. Because of how strong they are some people decided to train them to be mean. But naturally they are very loving and kind. I have met numerous ones at shelters and dog parks, all they've ever been is gentle and loving. They are trained for illegal dogfights and if they lose, sometimes the trainer/owner will tie them to train tracks are just kill or starve them. It is really awful. PIT BULLS ARE GENTLE BY NATURE AND ARE TRAINED TO BE MEAN FOR ILLEGAL DOG FIGHTS. THEY ARE MIDUNDERSTOOD! - groveofcats

They are not mindless killing machines, they are a normal dog that has been trained to do some bad stuff. It's not in their DNA like everyone thinks. And it's a myth that their jaw can lock when it bites on to something, its jaw is like any other dogs jaw. They are funny and always ready to play or snuggle,there are so many in shelters and they need homes as much as other dogs out there. THEY ARE MISUNDERSTOOD!

Oh great, out of all the dogs to choose from, you chose these vicious, mindless, killing machines?

12Shih TzuA shih tzu also known as the Chrysanthemum Dog, is a toy dog breed, weighing 10 - 12 pounds when full grown, with long silky hair.

They have too much hair. How can that one see. And they sound rude. I don't hate them, they're just not my favourite

Love love love a Shih Tzu. A Shih Tzu belongs in the top ten breeds. Probably in the top 3.

I wonder who came up with the name... - DapperPickle

I mean talk about cute

15Great DaneThe Great Dane is a large German breed of domestic dog known for its giant size. The German name of the breed is Deutsche Dogge, or German Mastiff.

Great Danes are defiantly the best they are so smart but they can be a bit lazy but my Great Dane "perdita" is just a baby and she always used to run away when we first got her but now she won't pass the property line without us

16Saint BernardThe St. Bernard or St Bernard is a breed of very large working dog from Swiss Alps and north Italy and Switzerland, originally bred for rescue.

My beautiful st Bernard was the most loyal, friendly, beautiful dog I have ever had. They are great with children. And also st bernards are great friends. My st Bernard was my best friend. And I hope you consider getting one. You won't regret it.
