Top Ten Best Dog Breeds

The Top Ten Best Dog Breeds

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.

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 would love to have a well trained german shepard who is very nice and loving!

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

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 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!

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...

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 think all of the breeds in the top 10 are awesome (well except for the pug) but nothing beats a lab, NOTHING!

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!

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!

Yes. This yes. I love Golden Retrievers,I cherish them but I can't get one... - NonBad

4 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!

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. - Mcgillacuddy

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

a husky can be an aquired taste i guess, so full of energy, sheds like crazy, but what a personality, has been great with ALL kinds of kids, new babies, cats, small dogs, always keeps u entertained, and has no problem layin around with you on lazy days, but thats just my experience

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

5 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 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.

I agree with the other people! By the way I never had a beagle but it my dream dog because who doesn't like beagle snoopy is a beagle and they are awesome loyal they care for you they listen to you they are easy to train and they are also good with little children also they are respective so they should be number 1 not number 4

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.

We were blessed to have our beagle for 10 years. He was the most clever little guy and so much fun. My kids called him the son I never had, which was true ;) He passed away in 2011 and I am still distraught. We look forward to having another beagle in a few years, after our rescue love doggy (mixed breed - part being beagle) has lived a full life.

6 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 lots of fun they are funny and sweet and adorable and compassionate if I said all the things nice about them it would take a day they are great working dogs. my dog was funny when she was little when she didn't go to her pen we would run around and bleat like a sheep to get her in her pen. we let my old border collie run around and she came back with a squirrel in her teeth. border collies are great dogs my other one was afraid of string instruments and my brother strummed his guitar and she ran and hid in the drier and looked out to see if it was safe. border collies are great dogs so please please please VOTE FOR THEM

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.

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

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. more.

One of my friends loves pugs! In fact he looks like a pug! Pugs are so ugly they're cute!

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!

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.

Ooh! Pug is flattered! (Blush) - Pug

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 - AbsolutelyDisgusting

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

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.

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

9 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.

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!

The cute lil sausage! The long haired ones look like they're floating... lol...

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!

Love wiener dogs I have two and they are so cute and funny looking they are shaped like hot dogs with really short legs they are close to the ground and they have long backs

10 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.

Oh I love these dogs. One of the older kids at my school has one and they are so nice!

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!

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

The Contenders

11 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.

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

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

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. - IceFoxPlayz

12 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.

A big, sweet, slobbery Great Dane! I would never be lonely and I would get way more exercise!

wish I had one then I could ride it to school instead of the bus - 7beach77

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. - Swiftdawn

I have a little cute girl great dane named Delilah and she is so cute I mean how can you resist a great dane? They are so big and adorable but like most big dogs they don't live that long which is sad

13 Shiba Inu

Not a very common breed, but these dogs are amazing! Not only are they adorable, they are very easy to take care of. Shiba's are some of the best dogs out there! Definitely recommend to anyone. I've had my two for quite a while. one is 15 and the other is 12.

One of the most underrated breeds. They're loyal, sweet, and caring. A little hard to take care of at first, but once they're trained they make the best pets ever! (I have one myself.)

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).

One of the cutest breeds out there are extremely active and playful!

14 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 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).

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

I had a Dalmatian who smiled. She had the coolest personality.

Do they still use Dalmatians at fire stations? - Smash64

15 Corgi

I met a corgi one day at a lake that was frozen over so we skated on it. The dog was so nice!

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.

I got one corgi and then a week lter we got another one. They are always happy very energetic and great to different dogs and humans

Corgis are awesome! I have one at my house. And also, I heard of a corgi who got lost but eventually found its home! I love corgis, they rock!

16 Akita

Trustworthy, beautiful, loving, and extremely smart. Tobi was protective of everything on the property and seemed to know if something was a threat. He once grabbed a census worker by the hand and escorted them off our land.

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. - Swiftdawn

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.

Down our road there is a Japenese Akita chained in the front garden and it barks really aggressively any time anything goes past. It looks like it really wants to bite you. I think it is neglected though because it ALWAYS seems to be out. I'm petrified of it and too scared to walk my Jack Russell Terrier puppy past it in case it escaped.

17 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.

Loyal, better than pug, pugs have breathing problems because they shouldn't exist.

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

We have 2, a 10 year old Male & 1 1/2 Female. Both are great dogs, sweet as sweet can be. Best dogs ever.

I have two of these delightful pooches. They are so funny! And have to be one of the best dogs to live with.

18 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.

Jack Russell Terrier are so cute and cheeky! They are the best dogs

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.

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.

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.

19 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.

One of the best dogs I will ever get but we are going to have to put him down, I'm only 11 and I have had this dog for two years and I will miss him so much

I love you sunny


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.

It is my pet dog and I love it so much if I return from school it comes round and round to my leg and it is very friendly

I think the English Spaniels are the best but American is the second best!

20 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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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

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

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. - Smash64

22 Australian Shepherd

Best looking dog by far and not unoriginal like a lab or golden

They're so gorgeous, and are the perfect companion and show dog! They're lean, fast and agile as well. Australian Shepherds may not be as smart as a border collies, but they're just as good workers. I often hear that they're Border Collies, but with an on and off switch, so they know when to tone it down a little rather than work until they drop!

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

They are so beautiful... ever since I was little I wanted one. they are so sweet, loyal, and adorable. they are fluffy and their fur is so soft. my favorite ones are the ones with brown and blue eyes. they are great show and guard dogs too. NEED ONE SO BAD!

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

I have one. My dogs name is Gunner. Look at my profile pic if you want to see mine - XxSEVEREDHUMANITYxX

Oh and my old dog it was this breed he died at 12 because of kidney failure - XxSEVEREDHUMANITYxX

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.

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.

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.

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?

Seriously guys remember, beethoven?!

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.

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.

26 English Bulldog

English Bulldogs have exploded in popularity in recent decades. They are currently the 4th most popular breed in the United States. They are so ugly that they cross over into incredibly cute category! Flat (truck hit their face look) big droopy jowls...oh yes! These dogs are incredibly loyal to & gentle with humans...though they may not be the sharpest tools in the dog shed they are extremely sensitive & easily tune in to owners mood instantly. Most folks that get one become hooked on English bulldogs for life.

One of my cousins is a bulldog breeder and he has an awesome collection of big, rough bulldogs. Bulldogs may seem very menacing and mean, but they are actually aren't. They're nice dogs, and when they get old, they become so worn out to the point where it's just funny looking at them sleeping all day. - Mcgillacuddy

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 three dogs. One is a Bulldog and he is by far the best dog I have ever had, he is so sweet and lovable. My yellow lab and Beagle are great too.

27 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

When I was 3 years old I thought it was a cuss word. I thought it was the s-word and then zoo lol - XxSEVEREDHUMANITYxX

Always had big dogs, then got ziggy, I think he's human, he is so smart, love the little guy

28 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.

29 Pomeranian The Pomeranian is a breed of dog of the Spitz type, named for the Pomerania region in Central Europe. Pomeranian Dogs tend to get sick very often, however.

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.

So cute, very easy to hold into your hands, so many coat colors, and a loveable personality. - Komachi009

I have three and they are the most loyal and lovable. Like any dogs, how they are treated as a puppy determines what kind of pet they will be. They are
So curious and smart that the things they do to entertain themselves is often hilarious.

Little cuties! They're very good with kids. I'm almost 11 and I met one at the dog show and he was jumping on me and licking me...

30 Irish Setter

A great mixture of gentle and fiery. They enjoy solitude and peace and quiet, but if they sense an intruder they are quick to alert, though thankfully there not given to biting so they make wonderful family pets. - Listlover77

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.

31 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.

I met this cavalier named "Rusty" he was so cute! He loved cuddles!

Cavalier King Charles makes so great pets, some people thinks they are very dumb but they are not. I have a cavalier King Charles and she behaves very well. My dogs name is princess. The first time me and my family see's her we loved her. Also my puppy knows how to stand on two legs too. Cavalier King Charles is the best dog breed ever!

I have one, they are simply the best pets ever. My Cavalier King Charles Spaniel is called Charlie, he's 7 at the moment and he had a hip injury about 3 years ago. I love him to bits and when I see another dog this breed, I like that too so that's why I love dem so much.

32 Basset Hound The Basset Hound is a short-legged breed of dog of the hound family, as well as one of six recognized Basset breeds in France.

I have a lazy Basset Hound. She just lies around all day, but she’s very huggable

My Basset is so funny and sweet! Just remember,you need to be patient when it comes to training and walking,they are very slow and a bit stubborn. However they honestly are better with children than Labs. Mine is so sweet to everyone!

I love my Basset Hound. They are the best.

The sweetest and the smelliest of all breeds bar none

33 Bichon

They are so cute I have one myself yes some can cost a thousand euros but those are only for the really cute ones I have areally cute one myself she loves playing with everyone and you only have to groom them twice a month was them every week and brush them everyday which only takes half an hour to dk

I have a Bichon and its very cute.A member of my family is allergic to dogs and has never had a problem with mine. It comes over to me every night and cuddles me.MY best friend has one too and it's so sweet. Bichons are a lovely breed and I definitely reccomed getting one!

Fantastic little dogs, always want to please. Hate being left alone, they have real separation anxiety issues. Quick learners, easy to train and happy little soles!

Love the playful side of them, always happy to please owner and they love the outdoors. Can not get enough of the bichon Blitz!

34 Newfoundland

Best with kids and will protect you and your family! Also loves helping with tasks around the house!

This is a breed that's very sweet and you can play and do a lot of activities with them, especially in the water. They can even save you from drowning. This breed is one of the greatest out there and are probably the best family dog. - zam67

These are the best dogs in the world.
Love kids. Check. Work. Check. Hunt. Check. Cute. Check. Kind. Check. Goofy. Check. Beautiful. Check.

So? Best. CHECK.

The fact is my son has been in a while I can't even believe it he said I have no problem getting it now and now it was just my

35 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

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.

Fun but not overbearing. Playful, smart, and obedient. They do not shed normally, and a are more hypoallergenic.

36 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.

I had a Boston who was the sweetest so cute love their smushed faces

WHAT DO YOU MEAN 34! I HAD THIS DOG, TWICE! they where the best two dogs I ever had (because I only had two)

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.

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!

37 American Foxhound The American Foxhound is a breed of dog that is a cousin of the English Foxhound. They are scent hounds, bred to hunt foxes by scent.

I have two and they are amazing and they are very sweet and they are just amazing with children. I would have to say this is my favorite breed of dog.

They look like big beagles

Reminds me of my career somehow... - RevolverOcelot

My dad’s old wife had one named Marty, and he got a lot of ticks due to his coat - Jocelyndapineapple

38 Belgian Shepherd

My pals. Grown with them. Trustworthy, loyal, intelligent, guardians buddies

They are so cute they look like wolves - Lunala


39 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 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.

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

My best friend owns one of these loyal dogs. they are crazy smart and real playful too, you'll fall in love the moment you lay eyes on one!

40 Doberman Pinscher The Doberman Pinscher, or Dobermann, or Doberman, is a medium-large breed of domestic dog originally developed around 1890 by Karl Friedrich Louis Dobermann, a tax collector from Germany.

They are fearless, bold, confident, kind, strong, and loyal! Best dog breed to ever set paw in this world.

people think their always mean but the dogs owners make them that way they are actually really nice check out cwdressen channel on youtube you will see many cool videos of a doberman and a chihuahua (I don't really know how to spell that) -

Bred to excell in protective work, this dog is very strong as well as smart. Highly intelligent likely due to the fact that German Shepherd's genes were used in the development of the Doberman. Very vigilant, and if socialized adequately during youth, Doberman's grow to be very playful and loving. Just like the GSD, Doberman's are as versatile as a canine gets. Give the Doberman a job or it will find a mission for itself... Doberman's have a relentless focus and are very good at isolating whatever is in the way of what it wants.

I just adore these dogs. I know if they have the ears up they look mean but they can be GREAT dogs. I am dying to get one when I am older!

41 Maltese The Maltese is a hypoallergenic, small breed of dog in the Toy Group. It descends from dogs originating in the Central Mediterranean Area.

They are just adorable, hypoallergenic, intelligent, cuddly, and sweet! - Listlover77

Stuoid peole this is supposed to be number 1 stupid english people

Nicest dogs ever! They love to cuddle! Mine is so cute and friendly.

Number one is Maltese, number one is Maltese, number one should be Maltese anyway!

42 American Eskimo Dog The American Eskimo Dog is a breed of companion dog originating in Germany. The American Eskimo is a member of the Spitz family.

Why come, you guys aren't putting him on top 10?

Come on dude, this breed should be in a lot higher place!

This is the top breed. Sharp, loyal, and beautiful.

I had one growing up. Very smart, loyal and caring.

43 Bernese Mountain Dog The Bernese Mountain Dog, called in German the Berner Sennenhund, is a large-sized breed of dog, one of the four breeds of Sennenhund-type dogs from the Swiss Alps.

Adorable dogs. So cute and fluffy and great for families. They save lives too in the mountains

Cuddly soft fluffy and loyal

Best dog hands down

Love cold areS - Jocelyndapineapple

44 Schnauzer

My friend has two miniature ones. Really loving and cute but a bit yappy

We use to have a little schnauzer. They are probably the smartest dog breed hands-down. Also, very sweet and loyal and calm in demeanor. They do really well with very small children. - Listlover77

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.

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

45 Bull Terrier The Bull Terrier is a breed of dog in the terrier family. There is also a miniature version of this breed which is officially known as the Miniature Bull Terrier.

Bull terrier are the most beautiful dogs ever

I have 2 and they don't byte

They should be nr 1

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

Look awesome, strong as a bull but with the temperament of a doll

Isn't this the dog from Target

46 King Charles Spaniel

These are popular with celebrities!

47 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.

LET’S GET GREYHOUNDS TO NUMBER 1 BY 2020! Greyhounds are adorable and it’s unfair how they are so far down on this list because people only like the small, fluffy dogs when greyhounds have such wonderful personalities despite how dumb they can be, my greyhound is called Moses and he is adorable and NEVER barks, he is so laid - back and good with children, even if they are smaller than him

48 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.

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."

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.

If you had meet a wheaten you would get one but there not common. Go to googl images and search wheaten terrier they are so cute and they even have the trademark wheaten greeting.

49 Brittany Spaniel

I have one of my own, Bree, and she is the best dog ever, still a puppy. The only bad thing is that they have so much energy. But they are hands down amazing and very loyal

Most amazing dogs ever! AND SUPER FRIENDLY

Great dog, awesome personality.

50 Samoyed

Wow I love those dogs their fur is so pretty

Once a Samoyed was going psycho he tried to bite me. I love you, awesome reflexes!

These dogs deserve a place in the top 10

CUTE. Looks like Bolt - Lunala
