6 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.

Sadly I only have 1 at the moment, but at one time I had 3. They may shed, but they are great. Kid friendly, love other pets (we also have 2 cats and a Pug) They will protect you, heard you, love you, snuggle with you, and play with you. Training is all they need. They are so smart that they need to be trained or they will get bored.

Can do everything and is the most loyal and beautiful canine by far and let's not forget intelligence and extremely stoic. But to get the best of your GSD you need to give the best part of yourself back... Do this and you WILL I believe earn these traits unconditionally for a best lifetime gift any human can receive from the best dog on this or any other planet!

They are awesome! We have friends with Shepherds and if it weren't for the shedding we would have one. I want to get one as soon as I can. They are beautiful, playful, strong, loyal, protective, they are great dogs.

Love 'em - groveofcats

My dachshund name is ching n he is the best dog on earth

This reminds of all those times we looked after my other neighbors dog! We lived somewhere else at the time and our neighbor, who happened to my school's librarian, asked us to watch her dachshund, Zoey. When she came in, she'd get so excited and jump everywhere. My littler brother thought it was funny so he always called her Hot Dog. Best. Nickname. Ever.

10 Chow Chow Chow Chow The Chow Chow is a dog breed originally from northern China, where it is referred to as Songshi Quan, which means "puffy-lion dog".

I am an extremely smart chow chow and I should be in top ten! Top fifteen isn't so bad.

The most loyal dog to the family. Best breed ever to be made.

The Contenders

11 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.

After working with animal rescue for many years I have worked with most all different breeds and mixes. The only ones who have ever drawn blood are the little yippie dogs. The pit bull however is one of the most lovable animals I have ever been around. They have funny little personalities and are quite loyal. They at one time were known as "The Nanny Dog" because they were so good with children. I do find this to be true. We rescued a pittie several years ago and she has been one of the BEST dogs we have ever had. She is good with children, other animals (dogs, cats and even rabbits) and will even stand back when one of the other dogs comes and takes her food. I would have expected her to at least be more aggressive with food because she was starving to death (only 24 lbs) when we found her. She lived in the depths of hell before rescued and has been the most wonderful, loving and grateful girl I have ever seen. They are not for everyone - but that goes for any breed. They are ...more

Pit bulls are the most misunderstood dig of all time, the reason being their strength. Because of how strong they are some people decided to train them to be mean. But naturally they are very loving and kind. I have met numerous ones at shelters and dog parks, all they've ever been is gentle and loving. They are trained for illegal dogfights and if they lose, sometimes the trainer/owner will tie them to train tracks are just kill or starve them. It is really awful. PIT BULLS ARE GENTLE BY NATURE AND ARE TRAINED TO BE MEAN FOR ILLEGAL DOG FIGHTS. THEY ARE MIDUNDERSTOOD! - groveofcats

They are not mindless killing machines, they are a normal dog that has been trained to do some bad stuff. It's not in their DNA like everyone thinks. And it's a myth that their jaw can lock when it bites on to something, its jaw is like any other dogs jaw. They are funny and always ready to play or snuggle,there are so many in shelters and they need homes as much as other dogs out there. THEY ARE MISUNDERSTOOD!

Oh great, out of all the dogs to choose from, you chose these vicious, mindless, killing machines?

How I ended up with a shih tzu is a long story but she is adorable, sweet, and gets along with my 60 pound boxer, who knew - Maya159610

Love love love a Shih Tzu. A Shih Tzu belongs in the top ten breeds. Probably in the top 3.

These dogs are incredibly smart and equally beautiful. With white, orange, and smoky colorations and black splotches. They are great at farm work like herding sheep or watching livestock. They live best in a big space.

The coloring is weird but the dog itself is actually not hard to look at.

It looks like one of those weirdly coloured beanie boos
