Most Overrated Dog Breeds

Not saying these are bad breeds, but seriously calm down about them.

The Top Ten

1 Pug Pug The Pug is a breed of dog with a wrinkly, short-muzzled face and curled tail. The breed has a fine, glossy coat that comes in a variety of colours, most often fawn or black, and a compact square body with well-developed muscles. However, Pugs have difficulty breathing, due to their extreme head shape. more.

Pugs are hideous, and their brachycephalic heads make it difficult for them to breathe and eat. People need to stop glorifying and breeding them. It's all the more sad because they are generally nice dogs.


I don't know, you gotta REALLY take care of them, stop being like " I need a pug" like shut up no u don't can u even pay the vet bills

They are the ugliest things ever and need to die.

2 Siberian Husky Siberian Husky The Siberian Husky is a medium size, dense-coat working dog breed that originated in north-eastern Siberia.

Your insane if you think huskies are overrated. They aren't

Currently own two of these annoying things and from my understanding mostly positive things are said about this breed, this is mostly due to delusional internet people or egotistical husky owners. After spending lots of time and experience with this breed I can surely say the only positives about them are their looks, personalities, and athelitic abilities, however their cons are, they're not very loyal to anything except their meal and favorite past time, they run away and might come back because there's food, they're not protective, they shed enough to were you could make sweaters out of their fur and sell it at a farmers market, they're destructive when not tired, which is pretty much always, they're very difficult to train, etc. Honestly it makes me wonder when someone has the chance to create a new sled breed why they would chose these particular set of characteristics!

You know your crazy, right? huskies have good ratings because they are awesome. I don't have one but I want one

Husky are the best my husky would be so angry if he understand end this

3 English Bulldog English Bulldog

This breed is super unhealthy, I met one that you could hear breathing from a mile away, they may be cute, but they are not healthy!

English bulldog - most useless animal ever

This dog's health was sacrificed for their looks enough said - ellieg1130

Guys... people think THIS is cute. Also very overrated. I've seen a bunch of videos of top ten cutest dogs, and pugs and Bulldogs always made the list.

4 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 are everywhere, you don't see anybody walking a husky or a Labrador in my town. All you see is German shepherds, either that or golden retrievers. Everyone is so obsessed with this breed! If I say "German shepherds are overrated" The fans will start attacking me. Say whatever you want but I like huskies better. Not only do they have actual talent, their also really underrated too. Not saying German shepherds are bad (their great dogs) but I think they should be #1, not pugs

I think German Shepherds should be #1 on this list. Honestly, German Shepherds are a bit too crazy for me. But I think that makes them really good police dogs.

Never overrated. They are such handsome dogs, intelligent, so loyal and loving, a joy to train, obedient, full of courage and terrific with kids. They are the number 1 dog in the world in my opinion.

German Shepherd dogs are NOT OVERRATED! They are truly magnificent animals - intelligent, loyal, devoted, courageous, kind, loving, great with children, handsome... the list goes on... & they will never let you down. If you've owned 1 German Shepherd, no other dog breed will do.

5 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.

They're extremely underrated

They aren't overrated... They are discriminated though. - Monkeywolf228

Pit bulls are a rather underrated breed, due to their looks. - IceFoxPlayz

Anyone who has them either wants to feel liberal ("oh, they're misunderstood") or tough. I hate them.

6 American Bully

The new 'cool' breed. Whoever bred them just ruined the beautiful athletic and powerful American pit bull terrier - ellieg1130

7 Labrador Retriever Labrador Retriever The Labrador Retriever, also Labrador, is a sporting dog bred for aquatic game. The Labrador is one of the most popular breeds of dog in the United Kingdom and the United States.

People should stop breeding purebreds just because they're cute and adopt shelter dogs!


They're overrated, I don't get why everyone is so obsessed with them. - Monkeywolf228

What's so special in them?

8 Corgi Corgi

Even if they are for their butts, they are still the best.

Pembrokes are overrated, and shadow their overlooked cardigan cousins.

Calm down with the damn corgis already. I bet most of you don't even know the differences between the two corgi breeds. - ellieg1130

What is so overrated about these? Corgis are cute. They look like miniature foxes. - clusium

9 Shiba Inu Shiba Inu

They are overrated, their personalities are so similar to a cats, if your going to get a high maintenance dog like a shiba inu, why not just get a low maintenance cat. - BlueberryCatfish

They're not even that cute.

Look good but their personalities are not. - MagmaFox

This breed is only overrated because of doge. It is cute itself

10 Pomeranian Pomeranian The Pomeranian is a breed of dog of the Spitz type, named for the Pomerania region in Central Europe. Pomeranian Dogs tend to get sick very often, however.

There thick and cute. But their so annoying, they jump at you, they nip you, they chew your shoe, etc.

They're REALLY annoying to me. They won't get out of your face, they look like cat sized rodents, and they're manipulative. - applejuice

Maybe it's because my neighbor has two obnoxious ones but I never found them that cute - ellieg1130


The Contenders

11 Golden Retriever Golden Retriever The Golden Retriever is a large-sized breed of dog bred as gun dogs to retrieve shot waterfowl such as ducks and upland game birds during hunting and shooting parties, and were named 'retriever' because of their ability to retrieve shot game undamaged.

It should be number 1 it’s the only thing that I ever hear. - AwesomeJawson

They're not smart and they shed like crazy. Also not that cute.

Dogs like these are annoying and made me a cat lover but there are many good dogs but these dogs also sibarekan huskies and any other retriever are overrated but chihuahuas and yorkies are my favorites same with pugs

12 Dachshund Dachshund The Dachshund is a short-legged, long-bodied, hound-type dog breed with floppy ears, and short fur. Although, this Dog, which comes in a variety of colours, is not hypoallergenic.

Dachshunds are the best types of dogs thank you very much - children

Not rodents. Badgers.

They were meant to kill rodents... Not too cute now huh? - ellieg1130

13 Rottweiler Rottweiler The Rottweiler is a breed of domestic dog, regarded as medium-to-large or large.The dogs were known in German as Rottweiler Metzgerhund, meaning Rottweil butchers' dogs, because one of their uses was to herd livestock and pull carts laden with butchered meat to market.

Ugh! No thanks. Sooo OVERRATED.

If anything, they're underrated. It's the owners to blame for bad behaviour. And I've heard more about Cocker Spaniels biting kids in my area.

14 Poodle Poodle The poodle is a group of formal dog breeds, the Standard Poodle, Miniature Poodle and Toy Poodle. The Fédération Cynologique Internationale recognizes four sizes of one breed: standard, medium, miniature, and toy.

Ugliest thing on the planet. - Smash64


So overrated, they're just annoying, lazy, good-for-nothing dogs. They just stand there, bark at you and eat food.

I mean, yes, people do love them more than they should. But I have babysat many poodles and they are extremely intelligent, they do tend to bark though. - BlueberryCatfish

They're underrated

19 Great Dane Great Dane The Great Dane is a large German breed of domestic dog known for its giant size. The German name of the breed is Deutsche Dogge, or German Mastiff.

Dogs are called “man’s best friend” for good reason. They are loyal and loving companions -- most of the time. But any dog, given the right circumstances, can be dangerous -- either to other dogs, pets of other species, livestock, or to humans. Some dogs, like the Great Dane or Tibetan Mastiff, for example, are dangerous because of their size. Others, such as the German Shepherd and the Pit Bull, can be trained by their humans to perform acts of protection or aggression that can injure the subject of their attentions.

I really see nothing great about this breed. They are extremely hyperactive and bark continuously. - BlueberryCatfish

I SWEAR every movie Dobermans punchers always has to be the bad guy and the German Shepard has to be the stupid hero

23 Border Collie Border Collie The Border Collie is a working and herding dog breed developed in the Anglo-Scottish border region for herding livestock, especially sheep.
24 Yorkshire Terrier Yorkshire Terrier The Yorkshire Terrier is a small dog breed of terrier type, developed during the 19th century in Yorkshire, England, to catch rats in clothing mills.

So ugly. Why do people like these dogs? - Smash64

25 Cavoodle

I agree, these r so overrated. Like, why bother having one? My friend has one and she, well the dog, always barks when I come over. I don't like Cavoodles that much.
