The Top Ten
Poodles are intelligent dogs and don't need much work. In my opinion, they are good for beginners but I wouldn't cut all their fur. They are adorable without being pampered. - Spottedleap27
This breed is intelligent and smart. But since they are in the sports group, these dogs need lots of exercise. So if you like to ride your bike or jog every morning, these are great dogs for you! - Spottedleap27
It is a very cute dog
Shelties are kind, gentile dogs that sometimes get along with cats. They have long fur and they don't shed a lot. They love to play but they love soft cozy beds! They don't really need walks either! They just need a backyard! - Spottedleap27
This breed is similar to golden retrievers, but contain a little less exercise. Now don't get me wrong they do need a lot of exercise, but they have less fur. They look the same but just the fur colour can be different. - Spottedleap27
I wish I have one!
These are yappy at times, and take lots of exercise, but LOVE to cuddle! They are snow dogs so they love cold weather. Winter comes once a year so enjoy it with your new husky! - Spottedleap27
I acquired my first German Shepherd dog when she was 18 months old. I was told she preferred women to men. Wrong! She absolutely adored my husband as well as myself. She was a fantastic, loving and loyal dog that rarely barked. Tragically, she died age 4 from a tick. We were absolutely devastated and swore we'd never have another dog. 12 months later we missed her so much that we acquired another German Shepherd - a magnificent male aged 7. His owner was moving into an apartment and not allowed a dog so he was looking for a home for him on large acreage. Very sadly, he died aged 14 from an enlarged heart. Both dogs gave us the kind of devoted love that no other dogs had given us.
These can be big dogs! But they are amazing guards. If you have no man in the house, these are perfect for you! They are gentile but bite anyone that bothers you! Tell them what to do, and they will do it! - Spottedleap27
Very loyal and protective of their masters. - Pegasister12
A German Shepherd dog will be your best friend.
These dogs are small and loyal. They love to know their master, and love to play! They don't need a lot of exercise, but they take lots of toys! - Spottedleap27
Bull terriers pull their leashes a lot but can be cuddling pals. They are active but don't use up a lot of energy. They can be funny, so hold your breath! - Spottedleap27
Yorkies are little adorable doggies! Playful, lazy, whatever you want them to be! Play with them, sleep with them, hide with them. LOVE THEM! - Spottedleap27
Yorkies are really easy to take care of. Since they are smaller, that definitely makes it easier. Plus, they are adorable.
These dogs are not only vicious guard dogs, but they can actually be kinda gentile! It's really the way you treat them. If you are bad to them, they are vicious. But if you love them with happiness, they will be gentile like you! - Spottedleap27
Lovely dogs. They get along beautifully with my rabbit.
They are really easy, especially good for you if you have cats or rodents. Cause I had four gerbils and three cats, my King Charles got along with all of them!
They are amazing dogs for people with kids. Don't need a massive back yard or very long walks. great companions, and amazing personalities
