Obviously the BEST pet in the world 🌎.

A cool looking worker dog

I have a cocker but this is much better

8 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.

I said the truth about this dog and my comment was removed? I didn't use foul language I just said this dog can't be washed so it stinks (most people say they don't stink because they are used to it) and makes you and your house stink too. Also they are stubborn and barking machines. Double standards.

9 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.

German Shepherds make the most fabulous pets. They're so loving, devoted, kind, loyal & great with kids. Once you've brought a German Shepherd into your life, you'll never want another breed of dog.

10 Croatian Sheepdog Croatian Sheepdog The Croatian Sheepdog originated from Croatia, and is not hypoallergenic. It has curly fur, and is most often black, but can, however, be a mix of black and white.

29 Shiba Inu Shiba Inu
30 Jack Russell Terrier 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 Terriers are the most loving dogs ever and I have heard that many of the people who dislike them say they are ankle biters, but really it depends on how they are brought up. I have met many Jack Russell Terriers and not one of them has been an ankle biter. I also grew up with one of these dogs and it stuck by me as my best friend for the first 11 years of my life until he unfortunately passed away. These dogs are perfect for basically anyone, with training and attention they can make the best companions!
