Top Ten Qualities of Dogs That Make Them Man's Best Friend

We all know the saying - for the many thousands of years we humans have lived on this planet, the one other species that has always been by our side throughout the good and bad, the war and peace, the struggles and is the domestic dog. Most people in the U.S. have a pet dog. They are smart creatures, they are talented...did you know a dog can smell up to 60x better than a human? They have protected us, working as military helpers, firehouse dogs...a dog cheers you up! Therapy dogs, other animal is as sensitive to human emotions than the dog.

This list is dedicated to the one other Earthling that has stuck with us, always by our side, through thick and thin. And will be by our side until the end. Woof!

The Top Ten

1 Loyalty

They helped in the wars and battles.

My dog jade is also at my side when I'm sad.

This is very true. Dogs are loyal and want to stay with their owner all the time. Usually Cats run away and come back and run away and come back, etc.

When they run away from home after a hour afraid about something bad happened to your dog they come home :P

2 Sense of Humor

Shiba no walk

I agree my dog always has this little bottom row of teeth grin she pulls up when you call her name and you're holding food.

Dogs can be funny! Playing with your shoes, chasing their tails, barking for no reason, even smiling for pictures! - ThatStrangeKid42

So so true

3 Friendliness

No other animal can be as friendly as your dog. When you get home from work/school/etc. Your dog comes running to the door to greet you. - ThatStrangeKid42

My dick hurts

4 Helpfulness

They can smell a bomb, they help the military, they work as firehouse companions, therapy dogs. They are truly helpful animals. - ThatStrangeKid42

5 Companionship

They didn't make the term, "A man's best friend." for nothing! 🐶

Your dog will always want to be with you. Whether it's going for walks, eating dinner (begging), sleeping, or just sitting around...this companion will never leave your side. - ThatStrangeKid42

Dogs are amazing, I love them all, the house is never empty when you have your Best Friend, they are Loyal, loving and very forgiving, the list goes on 🐾

6 Intelligence

Uh, cats are already higher than dogs. They are excellent hunters and can pinpoint the exact time when they should pounce. A dog would just noisily run over to the animal, scaring it off. Also, cats can sense natural disasters and warn people. I heard a story of someone who’s house was on fire and the dog snuck out the back door. The cat, however, warned the human and they both escaped. They never saw the dog again, so much for loyalty. For some reason, this story has been twisted by biased dog lovers into reversing the dog and the cat’s roles. I could go on and on about why cats are better than dogs WITHOUT being biased like you dog lovers, but I’m just going to keep this simple. Cats > Dogs

They learn new things quickly

Learn things fast

Smart, loyal, fun, funny, beautiful, cut, very helpful... cats GET DA DOGS LEVEL

7 Emotion

I can't think of any other animal that has emotions has human-like as dogs. All animals are emotional (even cats...), but a dog's emotions are so much similar to our own. - ThatStrangeKid42

8 Kid-Friendly

A new puppy is all a little kid needs for pure joy. - ThatStrangeKid42

Humans and dogs have been through a lot together. - ThatStrangeKid42

13 Non-Judgemental

Dogs never judge any person, we humans do.

They do not judge you :D

14 Dopey
15 They Care About the Owner

No, they don't. All pets do, except one, cats. Well, sure they sit on your lap and everything, but, if you cry do they come and help. In a movie I saw, the dog heard his owners yelp of pain and he came running to his owner to accompany him.

All pets care about the owner
