Most Overrated Dog Breeds

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

The Top Ten

1 Pug Pug more.

I am a HUGE pug lover, and I think they're extremely overrated. They're adorable fluffy piles of cuteness, but there's other breeds too! Like the Cavalier King Spaniel. They're ABSOLUTELY ADORABLE!

Everyone loves them but I have never been able to see what everyone else sees apparently - ellieg1130

A pug is not overrated they are underrated # Pugs forever

2 English Bulldog English Bulldog

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.

What English Bulldogs don't get any respect!

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

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!

I have one and he is very sweet but honestly they aren't as great as you might imagine. Beautiful yes, loyal err not really - ellieg1130

Probably because they look like wolves. - applejuice

4 American Bully

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

5 German Shepherd German Shepherd

Who ever put German Shepard's on her has obviously never came into contact with one they are the most brave and loyal dogs you will meet.

Everyone loves this breed! They are everywhere but personally I prefer the less common Dutch shepherd - ellieg1130

They are sweet and loyal - Lucretia

The reason why these dog are overrated is because everyone thinks they are the hero and the better dog than Rottweilers and also because they are the number one police dog 😒

6 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.

My friend has one and they're illegal at our state. I think it's overrated because of its history in here. Also because we are near Cuba and all... you know, the rapper Pitbull?

Remove this from the list! Pitbulls are not overrated but hated in a lot of Places, I think they're underrated and no matter what people say they will always be the best dogs in the world to me. And do not comment if you're going to get salty or triggered

I hate Pit Bulls they are viscous

No. They are more overhated. - Lucretia

7 Labrador Retriever Labrador Retriever The Labrador Retriever, also Labrador, is a type of retriever-gun dog. The Labrador is one of the most popular breeds of dog in the United Kingdom and the United States.

A lab is the most overrated dog like EVER! They are like the poster-boys of canines. It's not that I don't like them, it's just that they're so overrated.

The most popular dog but honestly I've only met one nice one. I think they're a great breed but they still need to be trained people! - ellieg1130

Why would anyone get a lab when they could get a golden

Great dogs though, deserve the popularity - Lucretia

8 Corgi Corgi

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

Aren't that overrated. - Lucretia

They look like twinkies! - AnonymousChick

9 Shiba Inu Shiba Inu

They're not even that cute.

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

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

Great dog but the doge meme is terrible, and unfunny at that

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.

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

Kind of annoying and obnoxius - Lucretia


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.

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.

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.

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.

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 ugly annoying. And the stereotypes make them more annoying. - applejuice

15 Dutch Shepherd Dutch Shepherd The Dutch Shepherd is a herding dog of Dutch origin. They were used by shepherds and farmers who needed a versatile dog, with few demands, and a dog that was able to adapt to a harsh and meager existence.
16 Pekingese Pekingese
17 Doberman Pinscher Doberman Pinscher The Doberman Pinscher, or Dobermann, or Doberman, is a medium-large breed of domestic dog originally developed around 1890 by Karl Friedrich Louis Dobermann, a tax collector from Germany.

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

18 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.

19 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.
20 Chihuahua Chihuahua The Chihuahua is the smallest breed of dog and is named for the state of Chihuahua in Mexico. Chihuahuas come in a wide variety of sizes, head shapes, colors, and coat lengths.
21 Coton de Tulear Coton de Tulear The Coton de Tuléar is a breed of small dog named for the city of Tuléar in Madagascar and for its cotton-like coat.
