The Top Ten

1 German Shepherd 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.

German Shepherds get a bad rap because there have been instances of the dogs biting people(they have one of the strongest set of jaws out of any dog breed), but if you take care of them and give them love, you'll find a very rewarding experience. In reality, most German Shepherds are giant puppies at heart. They are also extremely intelligent. My German Shepherd, Gunner, figured out how to enter the house by opening the screen door with his nose!

However, this dog breed is definitely not for inexperienced or busy dog owners. They require a lot of exercise, and they can get hyperactive and destructive if they are kept in a small space for too long. They are especially destructive as puppies. They also shed a lot once winter ends (They need to shed their winter coat to prepare them for the warm summers, so get used to picking up large hair balls around your yard come early spring). And even friendly German Shepherds can hurt you on accident (ex. Stepping on your foot) as they ...more

I have a 5 year old pure bred German Shepherd and he is the smartest dog I have ever seen. I taught him how to shake in 3 days, he learned how to open the door in the boot room, so did my other German shepherd though. I have had 7 German shepherds growing up and none of them were ever hard to train or just didn't listen. The two dogs that we had that weren't German shepherds were the only dogs we did have troubles with so we stick to German shepherds now. Our neighbors had 2 border collies and they always came onto our property, they never listened even when we heard our neighbor calling them to come home. I have seen border collies be hard to train all the time, I mean not all dogs are perfect. One of my friends has a German shepherd who is really stupid. So you can't just judge on the breed, every dog had a different personality. But for me I have had a way better experience with German shepherds. Border collies can be smarter but for trainer German shepherds are less hyper usually ...more

I don't know if this is true but I've heard that they are really dangerous

The german shepherd is very cute and I heard it is a very good guard dog

2 Labrador Retriever 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.

Stayed with a family for 3 years that had 1 each, a black, chocolate and yellow lab! I went into work later than everyone else so after they would leave all 3 would run into my room and jump in bed with me. Nothing like sleeping an extra 3 hours with 300+ lbs of love!

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...

Fun; playful dogs very easy to train

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.

3 Golden Retriever 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

Overrated and overpopulated

They have such sweet dispositions and interact well with people in general, especially children. Definitely awesome family dogs. - Listlover77

Aren't they just the most gorgeous animals ever? How can anybody resist them? - Ambuj904

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

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!

It's a good breed.

I have always loved husky's they are so cute. Also go big dogs. - Cornbreadk

They're SO CUTE AH And every time I see someone walking one I get jealous

5 Beagle 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.

Should by FIRST

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.

I had a Beagle and she was by far the most loving creature I've ever come across. Not only are they loving, but they are also very loyal and charismatic. Beagles have a lot of personality and are very fun to be around. They're very playful and love to please. They also have a great sense of smell which is good for tracking things down and hunting. They're energetic and stubborn at times but are very entertaining and happy animals when given lots of love.

My top 3 favorite dog breeds:

3. Pug
2. Boxer
1. Beagle

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

Collies are another great choice for families. They have extremely even temperaments and are highly intelligent-- which perhaps stems from the earliest use as sheep herding dogs along with Irish setters as well. - Listlover77

Border collies are funny, loyal, trustworthy, and all around sweethearts. My collie is always happy to see me, and always ready for walks. If I were to say all the amazing things about this breed, I would be here all day long. Border collies are always so willing to please, and ready to work or play. Best breed ever if you ask me.

This needs to be much further up the list

I believe that German Shepards are overrated. Border collies are better!

7 Pug 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.

Puggos eyes look weird, helps make 'em cute If I had a dog I would have a pug

PUGS ARE AMAZING! They are so hopelessly stupid that it makes them the best creature to touch the face of the planet. My pug is the best dog in the universe, and he once beat both a German shepherd, chihuahua, and a golden retriever in a fight at once!

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.

8 American Pit Bull Terrier 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 truly do believe "There are no bad dogs, only bad owners". People are afraid of these dogs because of all the overblown BS on the news! A dog will NEVER attack for no reason. People get bit for multiple reasons and in the end, it's the OWNER'S fault for letting the incident happen. All these stories on the news about Pit Bulls attacking people have no backstory. How do we know that half of the dogs that attacked people weren't trained to attack people? How do we know the owner isn't some drug addicted, dog fighter? How do we know the dog was never abused before the incident? We don't! That's the issue! We have no backstory on the dog's past life and instead people just go ahead and judge the entire breed. Think about it. Just because ONE Pit Bull bit somebody, are the remaining 1,000,000 going to bite someone too? No! You can't judge a dog by it's entire breed. I mean you can, you can judge anyone by anything, but that doesn't mean you'll get accurate results judging ...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

Pitbulls are judged because of a few bad stories, but what people don't seem to realize is that it's not the dog breed itself that is bad it's the people who own the dog and raise it to be the way it is. If a pitbull has a mean and hateful owner then, yes, it will be aggressive. On the other hand if the pitbull is raised correctly in a loving home, they can be the sweetest family pet you will ever have. They are great dogs around children and strangers and they actually make terrible guard dogs because they are so friendly.

What the hell is THIS doing here? They are dangerous dogs and aren't even a real breed. - KalloFox34

9 Dachshund 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.

10 Rough Collie 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 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 - BlueberryCatfish

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! - Listlover77

That is all my family has ever owned... they are wonderful companions.

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!

11 Rottweiler 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.

The most amazing dog breed ever...I don't know what will I be without him...He's the other one looking for me every day after my parents and brother..I believe him all the time...He is that amazing..."Amazing dogs are often judged wrong"...

Rottweilers are loyal and make the most adorable puppies. They deserve to be number five at the very least

They are just so adorable

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).

They get aggressive with age

I think that just because dogs aren't go at times they can be you champions! :):

15 Boxer 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...

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!

I LOVE Boxers they are so sweet once you get a Boxer you won't want any other breed!

They are most friendly and sweet. My opinon they are cutest! - David39

My Cocker is the sweetest dog I've ever had. He is really old now, 16, and has lost his eye sight. But that doesn't keep him from enjoying our walks everyday.

20 Alaskan Malamute 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.

I had one. Last year it died.

Very loyal. They're basically gentle giants.

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.

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!

21 Yorkshire Terrier 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! - Listlover77

My only dog was a Yorkshire terrier. He was a very loyal dog, but very lazy Haha. Been 6 years. He was a good friend.

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. - vincenteho

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, fiercely loyal, and amazingly gentle, these gorgeous dogs protect their animal friends and human counterparts equally well. - Listlover77

24 St. Bernard 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.

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.

So warm

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

Come on doesn't everyone like beethoven?

Adorable

My English Bulldog makes me laugh all the time. She has an amazingly strong personality and is such a character. She demands attention for sure. Lives to eat but is keeping a trim figure with the raw diet. She is also so stubborn so she would never crack under pier pressure. She loves playing in the snow and then runs inside to lay on the radiant heated floors. She snores like a 300 pound person one minute then purrs like a cat the next. She’s extremely vocal when she wants go be. She loves people and wants to be a part of the action. Everyone loves Minnie!

I have a 8 years old bulldog ''dexter'' and he is awesome! Love this race

They're so peaceful and fun. They also are very cute. I highly suggest you get one

26 Poodle 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.

I have a poodle! I think they are beautiful dogs with great personalities! (Most of them anyway,)

I have a 12 y/o miniature poodle named Farley and he is the best dog, and good boi. Poodles are the best dogs, and here are the top 3 reasons why

1. They don't shed
2. They are cute
3. They are cuddly and will protec u but won't attac u

Thanks for coming to my ted talk

If poodles are your least favorite dogs because you think they're suck up and vain, you are 100% wrong. I have a 10 year old miniature poodle at home who I've grown up with. Minnie is super smart, loyal and protective. She may snap occasionally, but she's still my sweet girl. She's a better guard dog than my German Shepard!

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.

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

Why is this all the way down to 28? They are one of the best breeds of dogs. They are not only cute, but are independent, quieter and more intelligent compared to other small dog breeds which are more attention seeking and require more care otherwise they'll bark a lot. Shih Tzu's are one of the most adorable too! They make great apartment dogs, and family dogs if the family has a little bit older children since it's a small dog. They usually sleep a lot diring the day but can be really playful too, it depends on the individual dog's personality which can vary a lot depending on it's character and how it's owner trained them. They are known for living a long life of around 15 years which is a lot for a dog. They are curious and are willing to learn, plus are observant of their surroundings. They enjoy sitting with/or on their owner's lap too!

There's better pictures of Shih Tzu but to the point.
I have a Shih Tzu and they're so cute and playful. Best breed ever his is it 27th

Poms are very smart and loyal dogs. One of the smartest dogs I have ever seen.. They give you eye contact and are also a good working dog. But don't get one if you cannot or will not groom them. They deserve the best care for their faithfulness and love.

Y this sould be 1st

Why so low on the list? They are the best! Very,very, I mean, very cute puppers. They are like labradors and very intelligent. They're just fragile

I am so happy with my new Irish setter its name is Rua I think that Irish setters are the best house dog and hunting dog in the entire world!

I love these setters. I show mine and they are very smart and just want to please.

I AM Irish AND FROM WHAT I'VE HEARD THEY ARE AMAZING. I LIVE IN Ireland AND I HAVE GROWN UP HERE ALL MY LIFE. Ireland IS AS BEAUTIFUL as it is supposed to be, hot in the summer but does rain quite often. The Kerry countryside is beautiful.

30 Cavalier King Charles Spaniel Cavalier King Charles Spaniel The Cavalier King Charles Spaniel is a small spaniel classed as a toy dog by The Kennel Club and the American Kennel Club.

I used to have one of these. They should be number 1. My dog was so sweet.
He'd paddle if you was held above the water. And if you wanted to pick him up you'd have to give him tummy ruffles. And he also was playful with my pug. And adorable. But sadly he died at 9 because of heart failure. If your looking for a good dog breed to get try out This dog breed. I'm sorry if this breed isn't good for you. But that dog was a gift from god and is in heaven.

My first was one of the smartest dogs I've ever seen, able to defeat a yellow lab in a fight he got into because he ran off in our neighborhood purely with wit. He wouldn't chew up anything unless you directly put that thing in his mouth with your hands. He could run at almost 30 mph, and lived to 14 years old. He was healthy physically, but he was blind and deaf, so there was no point in him being alive anymore. But, he could smell better than any other dog we knew, and had a stronger bite than the neighbor's black lab.

I have a 2 year old Boston Terrier that is the cutest and funniest dog I have ever seen. He loves to play and never seems to sleep. Thanks to him, the fun never stops in my house!

Not the cutest, but are so close to being the cutest because they are playful and there face makes them look grumpy when there actually cuddly.

You must not have a Boston Terrier, because pretty much everything you said is wrong. - lannypetersong

36 Greyhound Greyhound The Greyhound is a breed of dog, a sighthound which has been bred for coursing game and Greyhound racing.

Greyhounds are LIT. Everybody thinks they're weird because they are skinny and pointy, but they need help! Some people don't adopt them because they think they are aggressive and hyper (being the fastest dogs) but they are really couch potatoes, running for a couple of minutes then sleep.. Also, greyhounds are abused in the racing industry. They are kept in cold cages and often get injuries from racing. They are also killed if they don't win enough. That's why adoption agencies arranged to have some losing greyhounds arranged to be adopted all over the world. They are great indoors too, because they don't need a big house. In fact, greyhounds have been rated the best dogs for small living in some years. They are also the original Egyptian dogs, which is pretty cool. If more people adopt greyhounds, we can end greyhound racing forever. Also, if you get a greyhound, it opens up a new community unlike any other. Greyhound people are very friendly and like to get together with their ...more

They are SO CUTE and are trustworthy and friendly and also most of the time very quiet and calm.

Greyhounds are actually god. I have a Chihuahua mix at home but I'd rather for these (not to hate on my doggo I love him) because they the breeds that ever crossed the earth.

Top breed for racing and hunting

37 Goldendoodle Goldendoodle The Goldendoodle is a cross-breed dog, which is obtained by breeding a Golden Retriever with a Poodle. The name, which alters "poodle" to "doodle" by analogy to "Labradoodle", was coined in 1992.

I have a mini golden doodle named Theo. When I'm sick, he lays at the foot of the couch on my feet and keeps me warm. When my mom or dad tells me to read my book at night he jumps on my bed and rolls around. He was really easy to train, and is mostly well behaved. When a stranger comes to the door he barks, letting us know that someone's there. He never bites or scratches. He loves to be petted on. Theo can tell if your upset by your facial expressions. He loves playing tug of war with me. We don't have to worry about him chewing up stuff. He used to teach up to a Christmas bell on the door and ring it by whacking it with his paw, letting us know he had to go outside. Now that we don't have a chain link fence, we put him on a leash, just in case. If I say" go potty Theo! " he runs to the door and sits and waits to be hooked up to his leash. He never bothered my hermit crab, and likes to meet new people, unless they hurt me. Then he would more than likely hurt them badly. But overall, ...more

They are so cute

I have that dog and they're awesome, energetic and funny too even though they can be cheeky sometimes (my dog steals grandpas shoes), once I tied it to one of my beds legs so that it won't eat my chocolate then it suprisingly untied itself then a few seconds later it accidentally tied itself and got frustrated lol, but even though they can be naughty little ones it good to have a funny little energetic friend by your side 5/5

At laast. I have one at home and she is just the most lovable and gentle dog you could ever hope to meet. Callie is quite large and looke agressive but really, she is just the most loyal, obedient and comforting dog I know. Whenever I am sad, she seems to know something is wrong and come over for a hug. You could not ask for anything more in a dog. She is intelligent and great around people. I really recommend getting this breed, THEY ARE EASY TO TRAIN AND DO NOT SHED. So, golden doodles are my favourite breed of dog and always will be. I am definitely getting one when I'm older, no questions asked. Do yeah, I love golden doodles, there is not much more to say.

39 Keeshond Keeshond The Keeshond is a medium-sized dog with a plush two-layer coat of silver and black fur with a ruff and a curled tail.

I am getting one, and guys, before you think about having a cat and three dogs, get a rural house with around 50 acres of monitored farmland, but Beauty is amazing. - Swiftdawn

Beautiful so pretty - Jocelyndapineapple

I dare everyone to Google 'Keeshond puppy' and to not fall in love. They are a medium sized breed, whip smart, loyal, fun loving and hug better than any teddy bear. And they are empathetic. Yes, they shed & you will need to brush or have them groomed. But, they will only need one bath a year or not. They have no doggy odor. I've trained mine to do all sorts of tricks. Go ahead, Google it.

So fluffy and cute

Best dog hands down

These are by far the best dogs on the planet! They are big dogs with big hearts. They are good with kids and are very strong. They can jog with you when you go on your daily jog. They are very pretty and very soft. I don’t have a dog but if I get one then I hope it’s this one.

Bull terrier are the most beautiful dogs ever

They should be nr 1

Target dogs are the best. - Smash64

Bullies are the best.. Kind, loving, playful and loyal.. Amazing with people, even with strangers..You just have to show them who's in charge and socialize them so you don't have to cope with aggression against other dogs.. Bullies are just the best

Bull Terriers Are Loyal To Their Owners And They Love Goofing Around To Make Others Laugh

43 Australian Cattle Dog Australian Cattle Dog The Australian Cattle Dog, or simply Cattle Dog, is a breed of herding dog originally developed in Australia for droving cattle over long distances across rough terrain.

This is a blue heeler right? My dads cowdog is a cross between this and a border collie. His name is Bo and he is a great cowdog for never being trained. He is also very nice to people and never annoyingly barks at night like most border collies.

My Aunt owns an Aussie Cattle dog. She is great around kids, although, not all dogs of this breed are, her father owns one that's a younger cattle dog and she is horrible around new people, she'll either bark your head off or hide. Carly, my aunts Aussie, is still very athletic and loves to mess around with my aunts horses and she is an extremely loyal guard dog.

I have a cattle dog mix at home! He's adorable!

Did you know that both the Australian cattle dog and Australian shepherd have the wild dog dingo bred into them?

Australian Cattle dogs are the best! My old one named Ruby was my lifeguard. My parents would place me in the middle of the yard and Ruby would just sit there and not let anyone near me! They are also VERY smart.

46 Wheaten Terrier Wheaten Terrier

Wheaten terriers are one of the most underrated dog breeds, probably because most people have never heard of or seen this dog breed. Basically, Wheaten terriers are just the terrier version of the goldendoodle. I'm getting a wheaten terrier puppy soon and I totally recommend this breed.

That picture looks so cute

I don't have one, but the profile picture looks so adorable. I want to hug it and kiss it. I WANT ONE! I have a schnauzer and they are adorable but I want a wheaten Terrier as well.

Wheatens are soft and fluffy. They don't shed and hypo allergenic. Not to big or too small 35-45 pounds. Love to play and are really smart. This breed is the kind of dog that when we go out with him people can't stop touching him, I often hear the words "my next dog will be a wheaton, I can't believe he doesn't shed."

47 English Springer Spaniel English Springer Spaniel The English Springer Spaniel is a breed of gun dog in the Spaniel family traditionally used for flushing and retrieving game.

These dogs are the greatest! They aren't "wired "like other dogs. You have to own one to know what I mean. I love them. I lost my first one at the age of 15 3/4 years old. and was sick over it! So we bought 2 more and they are the most entertaining dogs you'd ever want to own. Loyal, interactive, greedy with their toys and people, have to be involved with everything you do. I love them so much! But if your looking for a dog to just lay in a corner your looking in the wrong direction here. LOL They even sleep with us!

These dogs are so adorable! I was originally going to vote for a Chiweenie but...

Yes

Our home has an English Springer Spaniel. They are very obedient, not at all stubborn, and some of the sweetest dogs on Earth. My springer is very sweet and whenever I have a mental breakdown, he always sits right besides me and allows me to pet him. They are also very, very adorable.
