Top Ten Best Dog Breeds

The Top Ten

1 German Shepherd The German Shepherd is a breed of medium to large-sized working dog that originated in Germany. The breed's officially recognized name is German Shepherd Dog in the English language. The breed is known as the Alsatian in Britain and Ireland.

I have a mini schnauzer and German shepherd and I think they are both super cute. The GS is called Ollie and the MS is called Sam. Ollie is a lot easier to train but I have to admit, Sam is very adorable! I think if you had a family and wanted te best dog option that would suit a family lifestyle - definitely get a GS because they are super easy to train and a puppy GS is the cutest thing I have ever seen istg! They don't bite or jump (unless there is a burglar, they can bite the intruder) but other than that, they will not hurt you intentionally.

German Shepherds are called mean and agressive dogs. While poorley bred and porrey trained German Shpeherds can be agressive dogs. German Shepherds are very loyal dog and portective but can be so nice and sweet! I have a german shepherd named sadie and she's so nice! Wary of strangers, she always tends to be more friendly when she sees that the person is a Good Person like my neighbors or friends! She only bit ONE person and it was a neighborhood theif and he was out side trying to get in and she barked so loud she woke up everybody and the theif got caught!

My puppy Luna is half German Shepherd and half Siberian Husky, and I love her to the moon ahem, LUNA and back! She has this really cool thing where one of her eyes is brown and the other is blue! It’s called heretochromia. She runs around a lot so me and my family like to call her Lunatic uwu -maddie

I have a German Shepherd dog, and I can tell you, that he is cute, and kind of stupid. He got sprayed by a skunk a few days ago, and he barely knows. He still wants to sleep inside even though he stinks.

2 Labrador Retriever The Labrador Retriever, also Labrador, is a sporting dog bred for aquatic game. The Labrador is one of the most popular breeds of dog in the United Kingdom and the United States.

My Labrador retriever is the sweetest dog ever! If you are feeling down she will come over and put her head and paw on your lap. If she licks you once that means I LOVE YOU. If she does it twice that means DINNER TIME. If she does it 3 or more, that means you have chicken on your face! ;)

I’ve had labs my entire life. A chocolate, a yellow, and a black lab. The chocolate one will forever be my favorite. Her name was dash and she was so sweet, kind, loving, and very energetic. She would always swim in my pool and go down my old slide from when I was little. She lived for 9 years but died from lung cancer. We had to let her down but in her final moments she kissed me, basically telling me everything is alright. The other 2 are also pretty good. The yellow one, cookie is not good around other dogs but loves humans. She loves sleeping with me but is very anxious around other dogs. And the last one is Rocky the black lab. Rocky is so sweet, but is sort of dumb. He will kiss you every second of your life and is so loving but is a bad listener. However I still love Rocky and Cookie and Dash will forever be in my heart.

I had two labs, both yellow labs one died, not because of pit bull, I will tell you story. I used to live in Hampton bays, while I was on vaca with my family, two pit bulls went over to my house and attacked my poor dog who is 14 and his name is Casey. When I went home, it was so sad because his ear was ripped and had old blood, it was extremely sad. He was a lab. My family got Rosie, a dog who is protective and is awesome, but barks at a person if she's unfamiliar with that person. Then I got lucky about a year after Casey died, And Lucky Is Seriously THE BEST DOG IN THE WORLD MEANING CUTE WISE but his eyes are not that good like if I throw up a treat five feet away from him, it takes two to eight seconds to see the treat, I have to point it to him. He is so cute. My family also had a Beagal...

My grandma breeds these! I love them! My favorite is a black lab named Lila! My neighbor had one. A yellow lab names charlie. Loves to eat, but is such a playful sweetie!

3 Golden Retriever The Golden Retriever is a large-sized breed of dog bred as gun dogs to retrieve shot waterfowl such as ducks and upland game birds during hunting and shooting parties, and were named 'retriever' because of their ability to retrieve shot game undamaged.

I loved my Golden Retriever. His name was Lucky Storm, and he was the sweetest thing ever. Whenever I came home from a long, stressful day, he always came up to me with the biggest smile on his face and licked me until I burst into laughter. When I was in bed, he came up next to me and kept me warm. I cannot thank him enough for being my best friend throughout most of my life, and for the one time he did something I can never repay him for. Before I got him, I had a netherland dwarf bunny named Twitcher who looks like a literal angel (he is white with blue, not red, eyes). One day, I accidentally left the door open. Twitcher, like all animals, I believed should be able to walk around the house as he pleased, and this is what he did when he escaped out the front door. The next morning, when he was gone, I went outside and searched the entire neighborhood, finding no trace of my beloved rabbit. I came inside and nearly cried, I was so upset (keep in mind that I had this rabbit for about ...more

I used to know a golden retriever! He was so nice and I liked to lay in the grass with him but he was my neighbors and he moved away so I don't see him. Also two golden puppies come for walks near my house! I love this breed!

My golden retriever, Jay, always knows how to make me happy, when I come home tired and stressed, he always insists we play fetch or Frisbee or I just rub his belly. He is always very happy and playful and isn't a yappy dog at all! I also have five cats, Daikini, Sandy, Tawny, Storm, and Flicker, and he actually sleeps WITH them! He would never hurt a fly, well maybe if that fly was a steal-hungry burglar, then he would snap that fly in half, he's a great guard dog, and tracker! He could spot Tawny's tortoiseshell pelt in a bunch of bushes. Jay is lovable, playful, cheerful, and will make you happy looking at him.

I have an English golden retriever named Paddy. He is very old and retired from his farm work. In their youth they can make great work dogs because they are so obedient. In fact my grandpa always owned a golden retriever on the farm after the first one he got. Paddy was the last dog in the long line of his goldies and now I own him. He is so sweet and loves cuddles. Paddy has so much personality, would never hurt a fly and looks stunning even at 11 and a half. I have never heard him growl and he knows not to bark and is generally extremely obedient.

4 Siberian Husky The Siberian Husky is a medium size, dense-coat working dog breed that originated in north-eastern Siberia.

My friend has 3 husky’s and whenever I go to her house as soon as I step through the door I get a big ol mouthful of fur and get bombarded with licks and love. Heaven, am I right?

Siberian Huskies are great companions and are very helpful. I know a service dog that is a Siberian Husky and he will tolerate about anything.

The Siberian Husky is a worker dog, meaning that it wants a task to do. Taking it on walks is the most manageable one. These dogs need exercise often, especially if you live in a small house. Huskies also have a high predatory instinct, meaning that most of them will attack any living moving thing that's smaller than them, including small dogs and babies. It will take time for a Husky to get used to a smaller companion around, but to avoid any problems, muzzle it if you have him/her around small dogs or children often and always keep it on a leash. Overall, a Husky is a fantastic dog. They are friendly towards humans, but just be cautious about their natural instinct. You must be aware if they ever feel threatened. Huskies are also very stubborn and hard-headed. Showing them that you are the alpha may take some time.

My grandma had one and whenever anyone or thing came close to me when I was sleeping he would growl at them.

Huskies are an awesome animal, they are everyone's friend! A Husky is a beautiful dog, one of the most if you ask me. They have striking eyes, blue, green, brown or even topaz. They are also one of the few breeds that can have bi-eyes. Bi-eyes are when they have different colored eyes, like one blue, one brown. They come in all colors. White, Black and white, grey and white, light orange-red and white, dark copper and white. These dogs need lots of exercise and space though and need patience to train. They are very intelligent too. My favourite breed!

5 Border Collie The Border Collie is a working and herding dog breed developed in the Anglo-Scottish border region for herding livestock, especially sheep.

these dogs are very sweet and love everyone, however, they have to find good owners, considering that:
-they are the #1 smartest dog breed
-they are also VERY active
they need someone who has at least a HUGE garden. They also usually do not get along with other dogs, considering that they want their owner/s to themselves, but however early socialization can help. when you are thinking of getting a dog, and you live in an apartment, or a small house with a small garden, THIS dog breed is NOT the dog breed for you. they also love agility, herding and more, so if you have a hyper border collie, try teaching them!
-doglover0901

One of the best dogs ever, I love how loyal and friendly they are! I am hoping to get one, and they are the overall best dog if they are mixed with a Bernese mountain dog!
-AnimalsAreTheBest

My friend had this dog and she was super nice, sweet, friendly, fluffy, soft, great with kids, great with other dogs and just awesome.

Border Collies are so intelligent, they make almost every other dog breed seem retarded by comparison. They're faithful & loyal to their families or owner, making excellent "seach and rescue" & "seeing eye" dogs. They're super athletic, unequalled in herding ability and also excelling at every type of dog sport. They are brave and aren't afraid to accomplish dangerous tasks. Having unrivelled stamina, they are always ready and willing to work (even when it involves getting dirty or wet). Yet, no matter what task they're performing, they always retain a distinctive gracefullness in their movement. They are a kind and sensitive breed, yet are not afraid to protect their families if called upon... Oh, I almost forgot, they also make adorable puppies. What more do you want people, vote Border Collie!

6 Beagle The 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.

Beagles are of the following.

Extremely cute.
Loyal
Long living.
Funny
Protective. ( My beagle still barks at people walking in front of our house.)

YES! dad wants one, and we are actually thinking about it, so that it can be our dog's (Cookie, the sweet Tibetan Spaniel) (I wonder why you don't have them) friend. they are truly gorgeous and wonderful family dogs.
-Doglover0901

Don't get me started on beagles! They're just the best! I've had many beagles and they're super nice and friendly and cuddly and just AWESOME!

I have a dog his name is Bo he is a beagle mix and he is the SWEETEST he still has his puppy eyes even though he's an adult and so Funny he is VERY fast and when he knows he is in trouble he just walks away. It's pretty funny, and beagles (Well, mine is a mix so not sure) are %100 going to make you laugh. My dog knows when I'm sad and he will just lay his chin on my knee when I'm sad. We found him in a shelter (I don't know if it was No-kill or not) and he was so sad looking out the bars hoping to get adopted and we adopted him. He is so loyal. This may not be completely what a beagle looks like because mine is a mix.

7 Pug The Pug is a breed of dog with a wrinkly, short-muzzled face and curled tail. The breed has a fine, glossy coat that comes in a variety of colours, most often fawn or black, and a compact square body with well-developed muscles. However, Pugs have difficulty breathing, due to their extreme head shape. ...read more.

Pugs are the most adorable things in the world. I would easily pick a pug if I had the choice. Good with kids and great with other dogs.

I have pugs. Absolutely the most gentle loving dog there is. Great with kids. If you want a best friend pugs are it. They do need some extra care due to those folds and larger eyes. I have found they do best in pairs or another dog in the house. Especially while their humans are away from home. The do not like to be alone.

Should be #1 because they are a great pet for the family and unlike 1 2 and 3 they are not big It might be just me but I don't like big dogs I'd rather have them be small or medium than big so yea at least put the pug in the top 5

Pugs are awesome! In the dog world they are usually called "clowns of the dogs." They would totally goof off to get your attention and are super great with kids and the elderly. I would totally recommend this dog for a beginner at dog owning. Pugs don't need a lot of exercise, and eat small meals.

8 American Pit Bull Terrier The 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.

I love most, if not all, dogs for unique reasons for every one.

Pit bull(s) (terriers) are wonderful dogs, or at least the ones I gotten to know.

Some people have good reason to hate these dogs, believe me. Big dogs in general can be dangerous due to weight and stronger, bigger jaws. Pit bulls are no exception.
There's some history to pit bulls. Apparently, there was a kind of blood-sport called "bull-baiting" where this hardy breed of dog was "pit" against bulls for cruel entertainment purposes. That might be where the "pit bull" has gotten its name.
Anyways, breed does not determine temperament. What determines how a dog behaves is training, care, and maybe even personality or genetics, though the last one is probably not true.
Don't blame a dog for his bad or aggressive behavior, blame the owners for their ignorance. Did you know that some people will use dogs merely as an "accessory"? There are people out there who own these large dog breeds and "train" them ...more

Anybody who's never owned one and is scared that "Oh, they're not trustworthy," doesn't even know what they're like and has no right to judge them. The media wants us to think of them as monsters who will hunt you down, but those people act like we never did anything to them. NOT TRUE. Humans beat them into submission for entertainment, and now that we could stop that, people are still doing it, and what do you expect? Them to be completely peaceful after generations of cruel treatment, after people wanted them to be vicious? This war can be ended, it isn't going to be easy, but I think we can do it. Don't believe the rumors. It's a myth that they can lock their jaws. Don't buy into that stuff. SUPPORT THE PITBULLS.
*Drops Mic* thank you for coming to my ted talk have a nice day

I love American Pit Bull Terriers. I probably love them so much because I own 2 and they are both super sweet...but kinda naughty.

It really is such a terrible shame that this incredibly loving and loyal dog has the unfair reputation of being dangerous. At one point in my life several years ago, I had the distinct pleasure of dating a girl who had a pet Pit Bull and I absolutely fell in love with it. Once the girl and I stopped dating, I found myself more broken up over not being able to see and be around the Pit Bull on a daily basis than I was over the girl I just broke up with. From that day on I've quite eagerly desired having a Pit Bull of my own living in my house. Unfortunately however society's unfairly labeled stereotype of the American Pit Bull Terrier has caused my wife to be far too fearful of an incident occurring to adopt the incredibly remarkable breed. For now...

9 Rough Collie The Rough Collie is a long coated breed of medium to large size dog that in its original form was a type of collie used and bred for herding in Scotland.

My rough collie is the sweetest dog ever! She has so much patience for all the kids that come in and out of the house daily. She's extremely smart and loyal. No matter where I go she will follow me. There's no need for a leash with this baby girl! It doesn't matter where we go she stays within eyesight, even at the dog park with all the temptation of the other dogs running and jumping around, she still would rather wait for me to do laps with her then join in with her canine friends and all their antics! I've always loved the beauty disposition of the Rough Collie and have had several own my heart over the years! I don't think my home would be complete without the companionship of this wonderful breed!

My absolute favorite dog breed, I own Smooth Collies currently, but in the past I have owned a beautiful, sweet sable girl named Avalon. And my grandma has always owned tricolor males. From my experience, they are very patient and sweet dogs. When Avalon was middle aged, my cousin was around 2-4 years old, and Avy would love to grab a toy, and run in circles around the table in the middle of the living room, enjoying my cousin chasing after her. She would also stop every once in a while to let her catch up. My sable Smooth that I own right now does the same thing, yet unfortunately there is really nobody young in the household that will play with her the way she wants to play, except for me and my other tri smooth, Starla. It is generally very unlikely for them to have aggression issues, yet they are often shy towards strangers. They are good in households with small animals such as cats, rabbit and chickens, enless they are a working dog living on a farm. But, they are vocal breeds, ...more

My rough collie is 4 years old now. He has many many dog friends, walks off leash 99% of the time, never has a problem being alone in the house, stays off the furniture, is extremely friendly, children and puppies love him. He talks a lot when people first come over but he settles down quickly. He's the best buddy. Collies are vastly underrated. They are without a doubt one of the best breeds to own, loyal, friendly, perceptive, and gentle.

Just have to give a shout out to "Lassie" counterpart; all breeds of collie are amazing in general, especially this regal-looking breed and they love people!

10 Great Dane The 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.

These dogs are do cute no one wants because of its huge size but it act like it is as smal as a pea and sit on your LAP! They curl up on their beds in winter and stretch out on their beds in summer they get so cold in winter we have to put on dog jerseys and they look ADORABLE! They are so protective over you and their house and of course their beds and is unlikely someone is going to burgal your house with dogs the size of horses because they don't realize that these dogs are so scared of everything even WATER! These dogs should be higher up the list like first. I have two Great Danes and the one,Portia,we got for free because she was a rescue her owner was murderded and no one realized,so the 15 Great Danes had no food or water and Portia's granny jumped over the fence and brought chickens for the dogs and they finally got rescued! One of the dogs were pregnant at the time and had lots of babies, we bought one named Django (we named it) but he had an auto immune disease and died at ...more

The 1st Great Dane I can remember having is when I was 6 years old, he was a handsome black Dane with a white chest. His name was Sampson. Standing 40 inches at the shoulder and was well behaved. since then we have gotten more Danes and bred them. A few years later we got a two fawn Great Danes named Trinity and Thor. They had beautiful brown coats and black masks. A few more years we had gotten two harlequin Danes: Shadow and Doodle. Shadow was a hyper dog and Doodle is the sweetest dog ever! Very graceful too. I had other Danes but these are the ones I wanted to tell you all about.
I want to say sorry for taking so much of your time but I love my Great Danes and wanted to tell about as many as I could:)
If you'r looking for a Dane make sure the breeder is an honest and trustworthy man/woman. Hope you have fun looking for a dog! :DDD

Don't get me wrong, I love cats so much! But, my golden retriever, Daisy, and Great Dane, Joker, and they are both two, they are amazing! Joker is a great guard dog, but he's also super gentle with Coca, my cat with weak motor skills, the disease is called Cerebellar Hypoplasia, and he's fun and playful with Daisy, my lovely golden retriever.

My brother has two Great Danes and the boy, Nacho Is super hyper, and the girl Valeria is super mellow. They are both really nice and sweet though. I am a little upset that I don’t have any Great Dane patients 😔 💔

The Contenders

11 Dachshund The Dachshund is a short-legged, long-bodied, hound-type dog breed with floppy ears, and short fur. Although, this Dog, which comes in a variety of colours, is not hypoallergenic.

Loyal, loving, intelligent... they do get lonely and really relate to their own breed. They’re great in pairs
Abraham Lincoln, David Bowie, Marlon Brando, Clint Eastwood, Audrey Hepburn, Elizabeth Taylor, George Harrison, Marilyn Monroe, Pablo Picasso, Kirsten Dunst, Christian Slater... the list goes on and on ...all these people owned Dachshunds. Best dog on the planet

Best dog breed in the world! They are loyal, funny, kind, and like to burrow in whatever they can find. Dachshunds will always be my favorite dog breed!

I have 1 year old mini dachshund I've had since she was a teeny pup. Let me say this: SHE'S the BEST. She's loyal, and is always at somebody's heels and never leaves your side. She doesn't tolerate being alone for long periods of time well though, but she doesn't chew thankfully. She's so hyper that she runs around the couch like a madman for fun and is constantly jumping around. No, she doesn't bark at all unless there's a stranger. Trust me, wiener dogs are the way to go!

HOW IS THIS NINE!?!? THINK OF ALL THE FAMOUS DACHSHUND MEMES!
Mini-Dachshund in hot dog bun
Dachshund stuck in sweater
Dachshund that poops in house after a one hour walk
THEN VOTE! The glory of dachshunds is at stake! DO IT FOR THE TINY WIGGLES!

12 Rottweiler The Rottweiler is a breed of domestic dog, regarded as medium-to-large or large.The dogs were known in German as Rottweiler Metzgerhund, meaning Rottweil butchers' dogs, because one of their uses was to herd livestock and pull carts laden with butchered meat to market.

This is without a doubt my favorite dog breed. I personally wouldn’t want to own one, but I still love it. It really doesn’t deserve a bad reputation. And some people say it LOOKS scary, but in my opinion it doesn’t look scary at all. They are cute, and I love big dogs. And they have really awesome looking colors to! People love chihuahuas and stuff, but chihuahuas are actually much meaner than Rottweilers. Most of this applies to pit bulls as well.

If a dog is mean the person raising/training them taught them to do that. Rotties are so sweet and caring, mine named Sypher means the world to me love him with all my heart

I have a rottie and they aren't as mean as they are said to be! I have 2 cats and my rottie finn loves them and guards my cats with his life, just like me. Rotties can be nice dogs, like finnie. I love them

Rottweilers are so nice they should be number one because they are sweet, funny, cute, very, very, smart. And any on that doesn't agree are big fat brats who don't have a life who is a loser they are also hobos. People think Rotties are mean and scary. Well guess what they aren't they only are if they're owner teaches them to they will. And why is that well here because they are LOYAL here that LOYAL. OH and they are the best in the world. Well my dog Xena is she is hot.

I'm sorry, but I don't agree with you because my grandparents have a Rottweiler named Bear, who attacked me when I was younger, and he still hates me very much, due to his old age.

13 Shiba Inu

I’m a veterinarian and there is a lady who has three Shiba Inus who come in every Saturday because they all have a genetical problem that makes them need to come get medicine every Saturday, and I can tell you that they are such sweet doggies! They act a lot like cats. The boy, Marky and the two girls Maisie and Maddie love playing ball!

Shiba's are my favorite dogs ever! I have a a black and tan shiba named jamie and he is really good at tricks loves cats but always sneaks things! Then I have a sesame red shiba named opal. she has a black muzzle and she is only 2 years old!

They may be expensive but they are very loyal but independent as they don’t do things that is no point to them. They are also related to huskies which means they are just as ada-yada-bang-bang(adorable).

Shiba Inus have always been my favourite dog breed, I love them! My Shiba puppy Mitzi is so loving, playful, protecting and cute! Shibas are pretty much half-cat, because they are so intelligent, clean and don't stink at all! Everywhere you go with a Shiba, you get positive comments from passers-by because they are just so beautiful.

14 Corgi

I had a corgi named Congo and he was so well behaved. He ran away a lot, but He came when I called and learned tricks so well. He always came back when he ran away within 5 minutes. He loved everybody he met and my family loved him for 13 years until he got hit by a car when he ran away and now I'm so sad Congo is gone but he was a cardigan welsh corgi with a brown eye and a blue eye and I miss Congo so much but corgis are great and I got another corgi before coid-19 pandemic and his name is Rider and he is a pembroke welsh corgi and I love him so viva la corgis.

They are so cute. My grandma has a corgi and his name is basil. Corgis have short little legs. Whenever Basil's legs are behind him when he lays down, we call them "drumsticks." I don't know why they aren't on the list. Especially since beagles are on the list. I mean, I like all dogs, but beagles just aren't that cute. At least when they grow up and are an adult. Black corgis usually have little "eyebrows" that are the cutest things ever! Overall, corgis are the best dog breed even when it isn't on the top 10.
-Pink

By far my most favorite dog, smartest as well. So loyal and able to do so many tricks at your command! I have had many breeds including huskies which I loved but never found one this smart and loyal, never need a leash, will follow you everywhere to the ends of the earth, by far #1 in my book. To say they ROCK is an understatement!
Frenchy

Why place 20 there cute little paws and short legs, pointy ears are to die for and there so active and calm at the same time, believe me, I have one. Also they are good with families and children and they look so cute when they land on there little backs and sleep. They should be in 1 st place! Corgis!

15 Akita

Have you even read the book Hachiko Waits? Well if you haven't it's about this Akita that waits at the train station for his owner to come back from work everyday. Even after his owner died he stayed at the train station waiting for his owner for years in the same spot he never left, that shows how loyal an Akita can be. People would bring him food and he would greet them, but he never left the spot were he patiently waited for his owner. He even died were he waited.

I have a lot of Akita patients, and I have noticed that they get health problems a lot more than all my other dogs I get in. All of them are super nice dogs, but if you have kids I wouldn’t recommend getting one.

If you're into Pokemon... This is the Charizard of dog breeds. Highly independent and naturally territorial. Simply put, if you want a no funny business attitude and fearlessness from your four legged companion... Look no further than an Akita. Also understand these dogs are very trainable as they are very smart. To put their IQ into perspective, these dogs are one of the few breeds known to remain quiet when there is an intruder on it's property and Akitas hold no prisoners. If you want peace and prosperity, don't tread on an Akita's turf.

I've had an Akita with me for two years now, she is loyal and protective and I love Ikea so much! Once a person was trying to break into my house and Ikea legit just calmly padded on downstairs while I was upstairs trying to find scissors or something, the doors were open I saw and she picked him up by his "scruff" and dumped him over the gate really hard. HE RAN AWAY FROM HER! Ikea is wonderful and I recommend Ikea to anyone who wants a dog.

16 Dalmatian The Dalmatian is a breed of large dog, noted for its unique black or liver spotted coat and mainly used as a carriage dog in its early days.

I work with Dalmatians a lot and a lot of them can be very aggressive, but also a lot of them are super gentle! I have to admit that they aren’t my favorite dog breed because they are very stubborn, but a lot of my Dalmatian patients are great!

I had a dalmatian once called Marie (Born 26 Jun 2009 - 29 May 2012) who died at the age of 2, I still can't get over it, (Crying).

My favourite dog. They have discipline and they are brainy. I love them so much.

They are cool because they help fireman's and other stuff like that.

17 American Cocker Spaniel The American Cocker Spaniel is a breed of sporting dog. It is a spaniel type dog that is closely related to the English Cocker Spaniel; the two breeds diverged during the 20th century due to differing breed standards in America and the UK.

I work with Cocker Spaniels a lot, and they are super sweet puppies! They are usually great with kids and cats. If you live in a small apartment or have a full time job, Cocker Spaniels are for you!

I love these dogs, and personally, they are one of the cutest dog breeds in the world. reason? look at that characteristic peak on his/her forehead!
-doglover0901

My cocker spaniel has just turned 2, I was bought him at a birthday pre stn for my 17th birthday and at 4 weeks old I fell head over heels, after picking him up a few weeks later we have become the best of friends. The most caring, loving and family friendly dog you could ever come across! He is great with children, the elderly and everyone in between! I was distraught when I moved away to uni this september and I couldn't cuddle him everyday, but it makes every time I come home just that more special! I grew up with my grandparents labradors, and I never thought I would love another breed of dog ask ugh.. until I met to cockers! Such fantastic dogs!

I have a black American cocker spaniel and is by far the most loyal, caring and lovely natured dog! If the front door is left open he will just sit there and it won't even cross his mind to run away. We also have lots of friends who have young children and we have had occasions where the kid has lifted themself off the ground by grabbing our dogs ears, which the dog just moaned a little but didn't bite (as other dogs would probably do). Great with my kids and a fantastic family pet!

18 Boxer The Boxer is a medium-sized, short-haired breed of dog, developed in Germany. The coat is smooth and tight-fitting; colours are fawn, mahogany, black or brindled, with or without white markings, and white.

My vote definitely goes to boxers they are a great family dog just so tolerant so good with any and all ages of humans. They are great with humans they require a larger amount of energy than some dogs but they do have a couch potato side to them. They are great jogging buddies. Proper training is required. Boxers tend to get over excited when new people come around the jump up and throw their paws almost boxing! Luckily Boxers are not hard to train just do it while they are young they are great dogs. Boxer come in many different color varieties including fawn brindle and sometimes white. When I was younger and sick my boxers would sit by me the whole time. Boxers may get a bad rap for their intimidating look however they are the sweetest dogs a human could ask for they are great guard dogs when my kids are home alone they go bonkers if the mail man is in front of the house if just they are home they could care less boxers are the amazing! They should be # 1 on this list no second ...more

Boxers! Also known as the German Boxer a highly intelligent breed that can hold its prey very well due to there underbite. These dogs are playful a great family dog! I know from experience I am a proud Boxer mom! Best dog by far I very much think these dogs should be much higher on the list higher 12 although that is very good considering there is hundreds of dogs on the list. As stated earlier boxers are great family dogs they are awesome with kids and are very tolerant weather its tail pulling ear petting (sometimes dogs don't like there ears pet) they are great dog I may post more later but right now I need to go! Again please vote for Boxers!

-A proud Boxer mom!

I love boxers they are great breeds wish I had one the are amazing but sadly my sister is severely allergic to dogs and I met one once he was a stray and fell in love but sadly I never saw him again I went home to my mom so we could take him to a shelter but when we came back he was gone I was crying and well I've wanted one ever since and I will remember that dog for as long as I will live I decided to call the dog boots because all of the dogs paws were white I wish you would love boxers like I do because they are amazing and I love them so vote for boxers not for them but for me...

Boxers...

Are sweetest
Most friendly
The most sweet
The most affectionate
The cutest
Animals that ever walked the face of this big Earth.
Boxers are a shoulder to lean on because in the midst of everything going on in our small lives Boxers are always there we are so so small compared to everything in this earth we are small compared to this earth alone and earth is on the smaller side of planets.

Boxers are a gift from our Lord Jesus Christ! Thank you Father!

19 Alaskan Malamute The Alaskan Malamute is a large breed of domestic dog originally bred for hauling heavy freight because of their strength and endurance, and later a sled dog.

Malamutes are just like huskies only a more strong-willed, intelligent, dog who's capable of moving 2,000 pounds... WOW... Malamutes are beautiful, striking dogs and many people want to have one for that reason alone. They are also very friendly, energetic, athletic and independent. Their colours are: Black & White,
Brown & White, Gray & White Sable & White, Seal White, Red/Copper & White... They are magestic! VOTE!

Best dog ever they are very loyal and look like a wolf. They are so beautiful. They also love kids. Unlike the husky they will listen to what you say instead of finding the point of it. I have a Siberian husky and a melamine and the melamine is a much better dog. Malamutes are definitely a good dog breed they also do well with cats.

They are very loyal and playful dogs. Unlike his kids they listen to what you say and are easier to train! I have one that is 1 month old and he is so lovable and loves to play. I also have a husky but he just never listens but he is very nice and loving. I love them and they look like wolves!

They are the sweetest, kindest, most devoted dogs and they are capable of incredible things. They are so beautiful and great with kids and other pets. They are so intelligent and trainable, if you want a dog, get an Alaskan Malamute and I promise you won't regret it.

20 Jack Russell Terrier The Jack Russell Terrier is a small terrier that has its origins in fox hunting. It is principally white-bodied and smooth, rough or broken-coated.

If you want a long living, fun, caring and sweet dog than this is the choice, my family jack russel is 16 years old and she is still alive and kicking, yes she may have hearing problems and she does have Blatter problems and can't walk up the stairs very well but she is still alive.

Yes yes yes best dog ever! Even though Ronnie is jumpy and energetic he is so fun and although he is only 6 months he's really clever and comes when he's called. He does try to snap sometimes, but it is mostly accidental, and he's really good with strangers.

They are the greatest camping/hiking companions! With so much energy and an amazing sense of adventure, as long as they come when you call them, they're the greatest little friends and will follow you anywhere! The greatest friends you could have!

If you want an incredibly smart dog who makes you laugh all the time, get a Jack. They usually live long lives and are a very energetic breed. Most are sweet and love to cuddle. Although I have other breeds, I would not be without a Jack in the house.

21 Yorkshire Terrier The Yorkshire Terrier is a small dog breed of terrier type, developed during the 19th century in Yorkshire, England, to catch rats in clothing mills.

Though expensive and prone to health problems, these wiry canines steal your heart and are paradoxes as they can live a 20+year life span. They are intelligent, loyal, intuitive (truly), and among the most expressive of any breed (both emotionally and physically); watching them romp and play is so much fun!

I have two and they are like big dog in small body. Always try to act fierce and scary but they are just too cute that they end up being cuddled. They are not meant to be left alone at home cause they'll be sad and when you get home they'll be like so crazy for waiting too long.

I study dogs for a living and I work at an animal shelter, and I know for a fact that they will bark at anything that moves. Unless they are trained and treated with proper care. Small puppies, get bigger. (Not too big)

They are so cute! Smash64 doesn't know what they're talking about. Maybe because they're so jealous they don't get one.

Nice comeback dips***. I have a Siberian Husky and am very happy with it.

22 Australian Shepherd

My Aussie lived to be 16 and she loved everybody from complete strangers to other dogs and cats. Jenna was her name and she was so so pretty and nice she died from old age but 'she had been around since I was 7 and I loved her so much and when my dad couldn't take are of her anymore she moved in with me to the city when she was 11 and we stayed in the city for 5 years with me but she was amazing and she was so loved. I'm still crying but Jennna is forever in my heart

I love all dogs there my favorite animals. Like come on I've been wanting one since I was 2. But I'm getting one for me and my brother's birthday! Its going to be a Mini Australian Shepard ( because we don't have the room for a orignial one) And I'm SOOO excited! I know someone who has this adorable dog. Their so smart, playful, Lovable, Adorable, and family oriantated! All in all I can't wait for my baby to come in June!

Australian Shepherds are really sweet dogs, but they can be very shy. My friend has one and she has to lock him in her room whenever they have a party because he gets anxiety. I work with one named Ray and she is really cute but boy, is she a piece of work 😂.

They are so cuddly when you get home they give you a big kiss I have had other dogs in my life but I truly think this dog was the one for me he has been my best friend for a year and were already so close but a heads up not a good breed for begginer trainers once they are trained there the best if you have these dogs don't give up on them all they need is trainer exercise and most importantly a FRIEND SOMEONE TO LOVE THEM! this is a great breed your life will be 100 times more happy with this breed make them feel wanted hit vote for them they would love it if you did thanks for reading hope you vote lets bring aussie to the top

23 Shetland Sheepdog The Shetland Sheepdog, also known as the Sheltie, is a breed of herding dog. The original name of this breed was Shetland Collie, but this caused controversy among the Rough Collie breeders at the time, so the breed's name was formally changed to Shetland Sheepdog.

Extremely intelligent, my dog is a whippet x Shetland sheepdog and she is the smartest thing around. I have researched the Shetland sheepdog more since my dog is a crossing of it. It’s extremely loyal and cute. It’s smart and energetic and extremely athletic and great for agility, it makes me proud that my dog is a crossing of it.

My beloved little Shelties, they are conveniently-sized, beautiful, and come in several fancy colors. Shelties are very sweet, gentle, and obedient. A dignified and sensitive breed. They have impeccable house manners. Shelties get along wonderfully with other pets, and they're remarkably polite when meeting other dogs, cats, and people.

I was never really into dogs much, was always more of a cat person until my mom got a sheltie. She was nothing like other dogs I've met. I've always found dogs in general to be kinda stressful to be around but the sheltie is so sweet and gentle. She never even chased other animals but tried to take care of them. They are angels.

I'm more of a cat person from my perspective cause you don't have to take them out in a snow storm so they can go poop but one of our neighbors has one collie and she is GORGOUSEand beautiful! She's been here as long as I can remember and she is so sweet! After being with her for so long my fave dog breed became a collies!

24 St. Bernard The 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.

This is a very sad story, so brace yourself! On Christmas Eve, I got the cutest St. Bernard puppy ever! Hans on the other hand, is a German Shepherd who is very sweet. Sadly, my puppy loved to chew on things and so only one hour after we got her, Hans killed the sweet puppy.*SOB* I have never ever cried that hard in my entire life! In my opinion, St. Bernard’s are the best type of dog you can ever get! They are incredibly underrated because not that many people want a dog that big. Every single dog list I go on, Golden retrievers or German Shepherds are always number one! St. Bernard’s RULE! ( that story might not of been that sad to a lot of people, but it definitely was to me! )

Great dog, especially for families.. Although not for everyone. Shed a LOT.. Need a lot of attention from their family, and moderate activity. Need to understand that you will be wiping drool and hair off of everything. Not a big deal after you get used to it. Also, have a reasonably large appetite. All worth it because of their loving, protective nature.

A famous story states a boy starving and freezing to death, a saint Bernard saved him and many other people in need! they are also adorable and very loyal

Its absolutely the best breed, great with children and old people. These dogs save many lives in the swiss alps.

25 Poodle The poodle is a group of formal dog breeds, the Standard Poodle, Miniature Poodle and Toy Poodle. The Fédération Cynologique Internationale recognizes four sizes of one breed: standard, medium, miniature, and toy.

Poodles are one of my very favorite breeds because all my patience who are poodles are super nice! They get a bad rap because people think that they are mean and sassy, but they can actually be super nice!

People thonk poodles are fancy suck up dogs but by standard poodle Jack and I love meeting people and playing outside for hours. I hated the show clips for a poodle so I gave him a sporting clip and he looks good and he was super nice!

I love these dogs, and 1 of our family friends has a black toy poodle called Gummi. she is pure gorgeous, and loves everyone. however, she is scared of a lot of things, so do be very careful before picking one out.

Poodles are the most amazing dogs ever! They have the astonishing athleticism, are extremely affectionate, incredibly intelligent(it is not uncommon to feel they are smarter than you) and they are quite silly and know they are the life of the party. I wish the stereotype that poodles are snobby would end because they are quite the opposite and are the most down to earth dogs ever. Also an interesting fact:poodles were actually from Germany where they were used as hunting dogs.
