Most Underrated Dog Breeds
The Top Ten
They're pretty cool. I'd rather see them on my street
I owned an Australian Cattle Dog and she passed away this summer, but she was the sweetest most gentle dog of all time, she wouldn't hurt a fly
I hope I get one when our family gets a dog, but the chance is small. They need constant attention and exercise, and I would worry that when I’m at school it would be bored and chew stuff. Maybe there would be a more low key heeler that would be able to deal with simply going on a walk around the neighborhood once or twice with my mom before I get home. You never know.
Every time I see one I immediately run up to it. So cute!
My favorite type of dog but they're usually really low on most of the other lists
My Akita is actually half Australian Shepherd. She is the most beautiful and best natured dog. Very intelligent. Takes to routine effortlessly. And lets us know if we're not following routines as scheduled. She is also big and very powerful. I would hate to see an Akita that someone trained to be mean or vicious! She is quick and unrelenting during play. If she were trained to attack... it would be very bad for the attackee.
I own a Border Terrier and he is
one of the smartest and
strongest dog I know.
My Border Terrier is very chill
and very friendly but has a great
sense of danger
I have had a border terrier for the past 13 years and I could not have asked for a better pet/companion. Now a geriatric dog, I have expected her to be less tolerable of little children and younger dogs but I am happy to be disproved every time she encounters either. Also, maintenence is incredibly low if you choose not to strip it's fur. At her old age she is still playful and yearns to please her master at every turn.
I have two cross breeds with Border and Norfolk Terriers. They're both really playful and loveable. One of them loves company with humans and is just plain modest and calm; the other is calm yet protective.

I love the Canaan dog!
If you are reading this and you do not know what a Canaan dog is, look it up right now.
I love them!
That picture is adorable!
Most people I know don't even know about Newfies! They're such angels! They're good with kids, loving, and gentle.
My girl is a sweetie! She is so loyal, but so friendly to others! Like the comment below "There are no words to express" Whoever said that is totally right. If you get one, you won't regret it. If you take care of that dog, it will love you and you will love your newf more than any dog in the world. My Newfoundland means so much to me.
I love Newfies. Mine was cute and big and kind, but inside a real goofball!
Enormous water-loving loveable creatures that stick to you for life. They have the strength to pull boats and the determination not to turn down a stick. Great around cats, kids and unbelievably playful.
Awesome dogs - Monkeywolf228
Not so much underrated in terms of popularity or acknowledgement... But the APBT is the definition of the underdog story... They face real discrimination, all for things that are completely out of their control. The poster dog for breed specific legislation... every time one of these dogs make it to a loving home, it could justifiably be hailed a "one in a million" story... Sad. One of the most important breeds of dog to humans both past and present. My best buddy is a GSD, but I also have a friend with an APBT. She has a tattoo to remind everybody "who rescued who". She considers her APBT the single reason she didn't pull the trigger with a barrel in her mouth. She's been abused, survived cancer, she's tough... But even she needed somebody to show her that she was their world at a time when she felt she had no purpose... That somebody was an APBT named Tyson she rescued from a shelter. The happy endings this breed brings to so many gets overlooked because of the ...more
Rescued our American pitbull terrier from the pound as a puppy about a year ago. Her and my almost 2 year old daughter are crazy about each other! Don't let their falsified public image turn you away.
I've had my pit for 3 years.. By far the most kid friendly pet I've ever had.
Part Newfoundland, Part Airdale Terrier, Part Rottweiler. I have a nine month old Russian Black; she's playful, friendly and protective. I also have cats that she could snap in her jaws, but she defends them and is really gentle with them. Huge and loveable, and unlike similar dogs, they seldom drool or shed fur. Ideal.
I love my Russian Black. She's an amazing companion and I'm certain that will be so for the rest of her time. - PositronWildhawk
Sweetest dogs I've ever met
My old dog was half this half poodle and she was such a lovely angel - Masochismismagic
Best dog I have had. had all kinds of breeds. this dog was so good and smart. also very protective of my child. I taught him to get used to my child playing hide and seek. my daughter had the bone to give when he found her. at first it was just two rooms. but then moved it around the entire house and garage. he would always find her. and she wandered off once or twice outside and he found her then too. I would say check out wheaten welcome because it is hard to stop them from jumping up on friends. but they seem to know if it is someone who should not be welcome and will be protective too. best they are non-sheders. but you will have to have them bathed and groomed. I took care of mine once a month.
The Pekingese deserve a second chance - doomwings13
The small furry bushbaby of a dog that you can and want to fit in your pocket. They love any game you can throw at them. Something you can't put your finger on about them you just love.
Apart from a lot of drool, what's to dislike about them?! Strong, energetic, playful and loves you a lot!
Rottweiler are good dogs. We had an Rottweiler an we didn't train him and he still protected the house. They are great companions and are great with kids even from they're big size. They are a great dog and they are somewhat intel legacy. It is very ignorant how they say they attack everyone. That is not true because I even got attacked by a chihuahua and they are known for being tiny. I hope Rottweiler are more respected in society
We have a Rottweiler and a Chihuahua. The Chihuahua barks at our Rottweiler and he backs off from the Chihuahua. Our Rottweiler loves our cat. I believe that they got bad rep from some owners that mistreated their dog. He is my big lap dog.
The sweetest dogs ever!
The English Cocker Spaniel is awesome and well known for its loyalty and playfulness. The American Cocker Spaniel is a lot like that. Smaller and shorter-living, but more lively and more playful. And once you stare into the eyes of a puppy, you desperately want one.
Yeah of course! 22?! I rarely even hear one person mention it except for me
These beautiful big white dogs need more love! It's my favorite breed by far!
Hardly anybody knows this breed but let me tell you I got one and it's the best breed! Go Google it up..
My Belgian terveruns are the best. My family and I have definitely found our favorite breed
So cuteee and remind me to hush puppies icon
An exceptional breed for those with the time and energy to devote to them. Do not get one if you are a couch potato. Ideal if you have a farm or acreage.
Beautiful and the most loving dogs I have ever encountered. Not yappy, loyal, playful, family friendly. They would do anything for their owners. Simply the best breed out there.
Yes, Weimaraners and Vizslas are beautiful and underrated.
The toy poodle is an adorable, hypoallergenic, breed of dog.
Mini foxie is the most underrated dog breed I feel on this earth, the Mini foxie is simular to a toy fox terrier and a rat terrier in American terms, but they have a little more bone compared to the toy, but not as on the go from dawn to dusk as the rat terrier. This is an Australian breed and I can tell you it is the most loyal breed on this earth, speaking of earth this dog will follow you to the end of it with one eye on you and only on you all of the way, if you was to come accross a bridge on your travels and you decided to jump of this bridge the Mini foxie without any hesitation will jump off straight after you before he views your splash. This breed of dog is the most loyal, easy keepers, non distructive and well behaved little dog I have ever been in contact with, and I can tell you this this breed will not change it's loyalties to you for anything on this earth, he is loyal to you and family for ever if ever is a term. A great dog, a fantastic watch dog without barking ...more - Minifoxie
Cardigans are underrated, but not pembrokes.
No one understands how great these dogs are until you have one. I have two and they are so sweet. They never bite and love to hunt.
I have one, They are the sweetest things.
Love this baby. I show my friend’s toller sometimes. Best of the retrievers for sure.
Nobody knows them :( such a good hunting dog :(
