Top Ten Best Dog Breeds


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've just loved these dogs ever since I was little. When people come to my house my two German Shepherds sit there and don't let the people out of their cars unless they are familiar with the people or their cars.

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 love German Shepherds strong, fast and highly intelligent this and the Border Terrier are top dogs

2 Labrador Retriever Labrador Retriever The Labrador Retriever, also Labrador, is a type of retriever-gun dog. The Labrador is one of the most popular breeds of dog in the United Kingdom and the United States.

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...

Labs are the best dogs ever!

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

Golden retrievers are the best! I want one so badly! Not only are they cute, they are loyal and playful too! Golden Retrievers should be number 1!

Best dogs ever

Goldens are truly the greatest gift we have ever received. The world is a much better place with these dogs. Absolute angels!

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

To be honest I think huskies should be #1. Yeah German shepherds are one of the best breeds but I think huskies are even better!
Here's my version:
1: Husky
2: German Shepherd
3: Golden Retriever
4: Labrador
5: Dachshund
6: Beagle
7: Border Collie
8: Pug
9: Rough Collie
10: Great Danes
I love all dog breeds (except Afghan hounds) but huskies should be #1 - Peppapigsucks

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!

I love Siberian Husky

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.

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.

One of my teachers have a beagle, he is so chubby and cute! - Peppapigsucks

Beagles are the funniest and most adorable dog breed

Beagles are the worlds greatest dog. There is no way around it. They are energetic and fun, however they read the vibe of the room and if your gonna be tired and lazy then they'll join you happily. If anyone votes for any other dog I'll get real grumpo. Nah but for real who voted for German Sheppard, aren't they the police dogs in underdog who bullied the beagle because he's different.

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.

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.

I love the way that they tilt their heads

I honestly love all dog breeds (Except for Afghan hounds, of course) - Peppapigsucks

Border collies are adorable and so smart!

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. more.

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.

Pugs are my 2nd favourite dog breed - Peppapigsucks

Pugs are awesome

They are just so cute and nice I mean look at the eye's at them

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

This is NOT A BAD DOG! Do you see the picture on there? The last thing that pops in my head is vicious animal. They are loving, loyal dogs and are my favorite breed.

Michael Vick fans can go suck it

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.

Love these dogs. I have one. People always think the worst do these cutie pies. - Gravityfallsfan11

I have a rottweiler and she is so cute so I have voted for them xoxo

So cute - JazzyJulie

I have 3 rottweilers and they are very protective and they can be mean it's just how you raise them. They can also be very playful up until about the age of 6-8 depending on if the dog had a rough life. Rottweilers are known for being protective and having bad hips. - Sharkboy18

They are cute. The are not dangerous if you treat them well.

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. - Swiftdawn

12 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 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!

A great Family pet, loyal. Good as a guard dog also, a scary bark but no bite. Cute as help but ugly. My sort of dog.

Best dog ever

13 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

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 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.

Collies are voted one of the most loyal dog breeds, and for a good reason too. They are geniuses and full of pure energy! I love all dogs, but collies are so awesome! Love them so so so much! Get a collie, you won't regret it!

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

23 Shetland Sheepdog 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.

I got one for my mom years ago, my dad payed for him. His name was Laddie. Beautiful companion. He would never set foot off of the yard, great dog.

Awww I have one tri color she is molly she is 11 she is MINE.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

35 Boston Terrier Boston Terrier The Boston Terrier is a breed of dog originating in the United States. This "American Gentleman" was accepted in 1893 by the American Kennel Club as a non-sporting breed.

The cutest thing ever change it to top ten

I haven't gone more than 6 months of my life without a Boston Terrier. 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.

Friendly and smiley a lot - Jocelyndapineapple

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!

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.

39 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 should be higher on the list.

40 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

They are the best dog breeds in the universe. They are super affectionate and caring!

41 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

42 Schnauzer Schnauzer

I have one very playful

Way better then any dog breed for sure! That is a miniature German schnauzer salt and pepper but there all cute!

Absolutely the friendliest, smartest, most affectionate, least shedding, most easy to housebreak, humorous, loving, spunky, goofball breed ever!

There is no breed as regal as the Giant Schnauzer. With human like critical thinking abilities this breed learns fast. The Giant Schnauzer is loving and loyal. He is protective of those he loves and eager to jump into action should the need arise. Mostly, though, this gentle giant is happiest right in your back pocket where he can be readily available for belly rubs and kisses. Giant Schnauzers love to be outside protecting the perimeter but don't leave them outside. His heart is too fragile to be neglected.

Loud and yips a lot - Jocelyndapineapple

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

48 Wheaten Terrier Wheaten Terrier

That picture looks so cute - Peppapigsucks

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."

The best dog ever so smart so loyal so cuddly

49 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 so adorable! I was originally going to vote for a Chiweenie but...


Going to get one of these soon. - Jocelyndapineapple

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.
