Top 10 Friendliest Animals

The Top Ten

1 Dog Dog The domestic dog is a wolf-like canid in the genus Canis, and is the most widely abundant terrestrial carnivore.

If they could talk they would always say "hi friend"

While some cats can be friendly, most dogs are more willing to trust strangers. Dogs are friendly in the extremely annoying way. They will run up to strangers, sniff at their crotches, lick them, jump on them, and sometimes even hump them. There is a point where friendliness is no longer a good thing.

They are friendly down to the bone

Dogs a very kind they show love and compassion even after being abused - Toptenanimallovers

2 Dolphin Dolphin Dolphins are a widely distributed and diverse group of fully aquatic marine mammals. They are an informal grouping within the order Cetacea, excluding whales and porpoises, so to zoologists the grouping is paraphyletic.

I love dolphins, second after otters. They are brave, loyal, and especially friendly for wild animals.

The protect us from sharks!

Nope, I love dolphins but they're very dangerous, they kill for no reason

I've seen Dolphins real life but Dolphins in other people perspectives are life savers from Sharks and orcas sometimes

3 Cat Cat The "House Cat", also known as the Domestic Cat or the Feral Cat, is a small feline, a good hunter, and comes in a variety of colors and fur patterns. Contrary to popular belief, however, they are not truly domesticated. They are highly intelligent and good at problem solving.

This is for Ugly the cat

At least the black cat I have is nice and she chats a lot to be honest I like all animals but cats and reptiles are my top but other animals are cool too

I have a cat and while she may act like a brat sometimes, it's all part of her personality. Most of the time she just takes naps on or near me and she is so sweet.

My old cat used to come up to me when I was sad and look at me as if to say,'what's wrong? ' He was so cute...

4 Rabbit Rabbit Rabbits are small mammals in the family Leporidae of the order Lagomorpha, found in several parts of the world.

6 Manatee Manatee

My grandparents live in florida we have a manatee named Barbara that come visits everyday for some food she has recently had a child

Manatees are basically living potatoes, because they are so fat and so friendly that they like to be tummy rubbed. Manatees may look kinda intimidating at first sight, but these gentle giants are very curios and will even make close-contact with a human. They also like to do barrel rolls, which is very cute.

They are so friendly! And cute but a but intimidating in real life.

They are actually the friendliest big cats. Whereas every other big cat (lion, tiger, cougar, jaguar, etc.) would most likely think humans as breakfast, cheetahs don't think humans as food. And ancient people used to keep tame cheetahs as hunting partners and pets...

The cheetah is awesome and the fastest animal and are very nice to humans when not trying to hunt them
