Top Ten Best Dog Breeds


The Contenders: Page 2

21 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.

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 so cute - Lunala

22 Corgi Corgi

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.

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!

I love corgis! This should be higher on the list. They're legs are agreeably weird, but that just makes them cuter due to it making them just look like potatoes. They are playful, derpy, and energetic. Go corgis!

Friendly little loaves. - Sop

23 Australian Shepherd Australian Shepherd

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!

My family has an Aussie. Very sweet and intelligent.

25 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.

These dogs are strong and super SMART my poodle was in her cage and she unlocked her cage while she was INSIDE!

They are the best

26 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.

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?!

My cousins own a St. Bernard and he's one of the dopest dogs I'd ever gotten to meet. - redhawk766

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.

A small intelligent little thing, with loads of heart, and a big bushy tail. Talk about clean, this dog dosen't mult!

Its like a person! they are so cute! it has a lot of personality and it does not bark much!

It doesn't shed so you don't lie in hair every time you lie down on the couch! - booklover1

We have a little shih tzu puppy and I can't say he's well-behaved 😂 but he's adorable and he never causes major trouble. He's fine alone and with other people, though. He's the best dog in the world...Why is he not in the Top 10?!

29 Doberman Pinscher 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.

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!

Gotta love the dobies!

30 Chihuahua Chihuahua The Chihuahua is the smallest breed of dog and is named for the state of Chihuahua in Mexico. Chihuahuas come in a wide variety of sizes, head shapes, colors, and coat lengths.

For all the people who are saying all these terrible things please go back to hell you disgusting people are just jealous. Chihuahuas are friendly just like normal dogs the problem is the owners that are stupid and lazy to train them. I know that some chihuahuas are not the pretties only some not all and are you gonna hate only because of looks.

For those who don't really like chihuahuas because of how aggressive they are, SCREW YOU. They may be aggressive but they're just as fun as other dogs, in fact I find them the best dogs together with pugs as they're relaxed and won't worry a thing.

My Chihuahua is a lot cuter than most because he didn't have his ear docked tail either he's very muscle his eyes don't pop out of his eyes love him to death

They are the best, they are so cute. They're tiny and just so cute! I don't understand how anyone could even slightly hurt a Chihuahua. - Puppytart

31 Irish Setter Irish Setter

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.

So cute

32 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.

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!

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

Amazing dog

33 English Bulldog 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

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.

I have a English Bulldog and she is AWESOME! The great thing about them is only the biggest things make them upset. I highly recommend one.

34 Newfoundland Newfoundland

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

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

Couldn't find Multi poodles, so I voted this one. I have been over to Newfoundland at least 10 times to visit my mom's side of the family. a Beautiful place, even Botwood and Grand Falls. Anyways, I have seen these dogs a lot and they are GORGEOUS!

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

They are so cute they look like wolves - Lunala

Cute and loyal


36 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 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.

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!

37 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.

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.

love them

38 Pomeranian 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.

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...

Why aren't they higher? They are adorable - WinchesterGirl26

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!

Hey Guys, this is something you need to read: My friend is so mean, he said to bring my dog to my house, and he has to fight his dog, but we haven't trained him yet. Sure my dog will get killed, he's only 6 months, now he's not my friend anymore

The name is: Miguel Del Mundo (a filipino)

I have one for an year so far, and I am loving so much - Jukass

40 Bull Terrier 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.

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

Sorry that was meant to be flat,flat faces,I love their flat faces
