Top Ten Best Dog Breeds


The Contenders: Page 4

61 Welsh Springer Spaniel Welsh Springer Spaniel The Welsh Springer Spaniel is a breed of dog and a member of the spaniel family. Thought to be comparable to the old Land Spaniel, they are similar to the English Springer Spaniel and historically have been referred to as both the Welsh Spaniel and the Welsh Cocker Spaniel.

So flappy and cute

62 Rhodesian Ridgeback Rhodesian Ridgeback The Rhodesian ridgeback is a dog breed developed in Rhodesia. Its European forebears can be traced to the early pioneers of the Cape Colony of southern Africa, who crossed their dogs with the semi-domesticated, ridged hunting dogs of the Khoikhoi.

Ridge backs are great if you like a mellow dog. I have one, and she is VERY sweet. They are smart dogs, and listen to commands well. Not many people know about ridge backs, but if they did, I'm sure ridgebacks would be in the top ten. Ridge backs get along with other dogs well, and my dog does not mind not being alpha dog. Ridgebacks are very loyal and they make great guard dogs, yet they that they shouldn't bark at every little noise. Like I said before they are docile and sweet, so I reccomend ridgebacks.

I had a Rhodesian Ridgeback, although he had fear aggression, he was very sweet. Again, he was diagnosed with fear aggression, so I don't know how normal ridge backs would interact with other humans/dogs

Beautiful dogs that where bred in Zimbabwe to hunt the fierce king of the jungle... LIONS. You will fall in love with these dogs! They follow you around and are a little protective of owners and house.

RIP Stubby

65 German Shorthaired Pointer German Shorthaired Pointer The German Shorthaired Pointer is a medium to large sized breed of dog developed in the 19th century in Germany for hunting.

My cousins have a German Short hair named Cooper and he us amazing! He is very jumpy, but loves kids.

We have one of these right now. Cute dog, and we trained him to do many things quickly. - Turkeyasylum

I currently have one of these. They are so smart but she does whine a lot until she gets what she wants! Spoiled I guess :) She is so funny because whenever someone comes over or we have just gotten home she has got to smell your breath! Just making sure she didn't miss out on anything good to eat I guess! She is one of the three dogs we have so she doesn't want to miss out on her fair share! Ours not only points but retreives as well! Loves to go out pheasant hunting! And she thinks shes a lap dog too! Loves to climb up on my sons lap and put her head on his shoulder and cuddle for hours! Great loving family dog! - Wendyt95

So cute

66 Black Russian Terrier Black Russian Terrier The Black Russian Terrier, abbreviated as BRT, also known as the Tchiorny Terrier is a breed of dog created in USSR in Red Star Kennel during the late 1940s and the early 1950s for use as military/working dogs.

I have a Russian Black; she's the perfect dog! Nine months old but still enormous. She'll spend half her time playing either with you or the other pets, as well as being as gentle as she can; and half of the time she'll rest peacefully and guard the house or rest with you. The other advantage is that they seldom drool and shed fur, unlike similar dogs such as the Newfoundland.

Russian Blacks are incredibly underrated. Probably because they're rare, but I would definitely recommend the Russian Black to someone who wants a large and playful dog who sticks by you 24/7, and copes well with other dogs and children. And if you have cats, get a young puppy who shall adapt well to them like my one did. - PositronWildhawk

My dad's side of the family owned Papillons. Their current Pap is a male named Fizzy, or Mr Fizzster. He's 10 years old, but he has the heart of a pup.

71 Bearded Collie Bearded Collie The Bearded Collie, or Beardie, is a herding breed of dog once used primarily by Scottish shepherds, but now mostly a popular family companion.

Yes bearded collies are VERY great dogs! I have one of these dogs, and she is amazing. (I am a dog lover) She is SO smart, (she is crossed with border collie) and why is it number 47? Yeah these dogs may be rare but that's what make them special. They are a great herding breed. I LOVE all dog breeds. They remind you of The shaggy dog when you go past one of these dogs.

72 West Siberian Laika West Siberian Laika The West Siberian Laika or WSL, is a breed of hunting dog. Russian publications indicate that the term West Siberian Laika loosely applied to hunting dogs originating with the Mansi and Khanty people in Ural and West Siberia, but there were no standards or registrations of WSL as such until 1930. Then more.

Looks like a wolf!

So cute


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

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.

My cavvy definitely is "cavalier", there is nothing that bothers her besides being left alone. They make wonderful pets and are easily trained. We had potty training accomplished in one weekend, but I dedicated my time for only training her the whole weekend. I want a house full of cavaliers they love to love you.

Such cute dogs!

76 Border Terrier Border Terrier The Border Terrier is a small, rough-coated breed of dog of the terrier group. Originally bred as fox and vermin hunters, Border Terriers share ancestry with Dandie Dinmont Terriers, Patterdale terriers and Bedlington Terriers.

Yeah! These dogs are great jumpers, like to run, great with kids, HUGE snugglers, love to play, and are cute on top! Why aren't these higher?

Healthy and cute

Had two border terriers. Best dogs in all ways except one was yappy and the other liked to roam away.

If my dog finds out they are in 65th then it will be angry 😡 🐶

I have one. Love her. First dog I've ever owned and bought the book. She is so very smart. Under rated yes. No shedding no attacking no minding if they think they can get away with it. You always have to be the alpha one inch is a mile for a long long time. They don't like to be alone for long times and definitely have separation anxiety. We got a lab for her when the kids went to college and we worked the same hours. Did much better. But has to be a puppy. They aren't good at accepting adult dogs. She's 11 almost 12 years old and still pulls my husband around the block. Mine is a hugger and I call her glue puppy if I've been gone all week on travel. She puts her head on my leg and walks everywhere with me. Love her, but don't get one if you think she's a dog. She knows the lab is a dog and she is human like us.

So underrated. I used to have one and he was so gentle and never snapped of scratched, even when my sister's stupid friend decided he was a horse and tried to mount him. I have no idea why she did that lol. I love them but (the dogs, not the girl).

Very fast, loyal, playful, strong, a little distracted when there are other dogs around, and so very very smart, if a bit absent minded and unwise. My Weim, Lucy, knows how to open her kennel and sometimes gets out in the middle of the night. And they love their humans so very much.

One of the smartest, and nicest breeds of dog.

79 English Mastiff English Mastiff The English Mastiff is a breed of extremely large dog perhaps descended from the ancient Alaunt and Pugnaces Britanniae, with a significant input from the Alpine Mastiff in the 19th century.

We have an English mastiff and he is adorable.

English MASTIFFS ARE THE BEST DOGS. I love them! They are so fluffy
