Top Ten Worst Dog Breeds


The Contenders: Page 2

21 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.

I don't know if I'm unlucky but the only 2 poodles I have ever seen in real life were aweful. They were probably 3 times the size of the shih tzu I had at the time and the poodles just randomly attacked my dog. He had a pretty bad bite on the back of his neck. Didn't help that the owner just stood their and watched a show me and my mum tried to stop them. My friend says he has had a similar experience of poodles randomly attacking smaller dogs

Poodles are amazing! They are a good family pet and are very obedient. They are also one of the smartest dogs in the world. I don't think that they should on on this list

I feel sorry for the silly shaved poodles that some people like. I think it's cruel to shave a dog like that.

I can't stand poodles!

22 Shih Tzu Shih Tzu A shih tzu also known as the Chrysanthemum Dog, is a toy dog breed, weighing 10 - 12 pounds when full grown, with long silky hair.

They are the best dogs ever have two bichon shih tzu mix and are amazing they never bite and they always love to play and adorable

Amazing breed. Very smart and great with kids. I couldn't ask for a better dog

Why is Shih-Tzu even on this list? I actually own a one and she's cute! - Stazemar000

23 Chinese Crested Dog Chinese Crested Dog The Chinese crested dog is a hairless breed of dog. Like most hairless dog breeds, the Chinese crested comes in two varieties, with and without fur, which are born in the same litter: the Powder Puff and the Hairless.

WRONG! Love them! I have a powder puff version meaning he has hair. The males are known to be more aggressive or territorial. He is the smartest dog I have ever had! Very loving and affectionate to family and others after he warms up! My parents have his sister and they are just friendly and loving towards anyone!

Love my Chinese. Crested they are the Powder Puff version they are very cuddly and friendly The only downside to them is that they have a tendency to have bad teeth so I have them cleaned every 2 years

Oh come on...WHO comes up with this?...Chinese Cresteds are the most loving, sweet, quiet, wonderful dogs in the world...Just love mine and she has never shown any aggression...She is just the most loving little soul ever..The only bad side is that she is now 14 and I wish she would live for many more years

Horrible dogs

24 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.

Best dog in the world! I have one at home and it's so loyal and loving. His name is Blitz and although he is way bigger than golden retriever is he is the cutest, sweetest, loving dog ever! they are just like a golden lab except longer more beautiful fur. My dog is is a red retriever. not a different breed but a reddish golden retriever and he's so pretty and is a great family dogs they love attention and it's really good to give it another dog to play with. which we did do. we got a multi jack-a-poo (a mutt)named pepper.Blitz can get annoying when he puts his paw on you but it's still cute and almost completely stopped after we got him Pepper! Golden retrievers are awesome great the best no dog can beat it's loyalty best animal in the world! I love them so much I can't even explain it.I love all dogs but this one is the best! most definitely the awesomest dog in human history! LOVE LOVE LOVE THEM! I'm so glad you put them on the best dog list can't what to show Blitz!

I was just kidding. I can see why they are good dogs they are easy to train and loyal. You may think I'm saying this to get hate off my back but I agree that they are good

Just because I say they are overrated that doesn't mean they are bad. Just because I have a different opinion that doesn't mean it's bad you have the right to not agree with it but you don't have the right to say it's a terrible opinion because everybody has a different onpinion

I used to have two and these dogs have so many puppies but they're so cute! I suggest you get them fixed because my female one had at least thirty or twenty puppies in four litters. - Puppytart

25 Boxer Boxer The Boxer is a medium-sized, short-haired breed of dog, developed in Germany. The coat is smooth and tight-fitting; colours are fawn, mahogany, black or brindled, with or without white markings, and white.

This is the dumbest list ever like any dog can be the worst if they are raised wrong like I own a boxer and he is the sweetest dog ever but I am not here to rant about boxers being on the list because no dog should be here it is dumb to make a list about bad breeds because there is no such thing maybe a list about worst dog experiences would be better

I have a boxer and she is the sweetest thing ever but I do have to say my boxer is really stupid most of the time so I don't know if that's just my dog or if others have the same kind of situation.

My friend owned a boxer. I thought it would bite me. Instead, it walked up to me, sniffed me, and cuddled up next to me.

Stupid, smelly, farts all the time, has the energy of a small dog...too bad it's too huge for that crap, makes annoying noises (slurp, slop, snot) the entire time they are awake and then when they sleep they snore like a buzzsaw. I hate these dogs.

26 Welsh Corgi Welsh Corgi

We adopted a 5-year-old Corgi, along with her buddy, a two-year-old boxer mix, about 4 months ago. They had been owner-surrendered due to the owner's health issues, and he gave strict instructions that they were not to be separated...he was right! They are amazing dogs, who can't stand to be apart for long. (Unless it is to go to two different family members at the same time for love-time! ) The Corgi is the most snuggly, loving dog I have ever had, yet loves to play outside and run at full speed also, when the opportunity is presented to her! I am so thankful that we found these babies after our previous dog passed away. From their first night home, they have slept in my son's bed with him. They both love him, and bring him so much happiness! (My son is 12.) Izzy is my first Corgi, and she has completely won me over! AMAZING DOG!

My friend likes these

Cute but sooo overrated!

27 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.

Labs are the best, to the comment below you just be a cat person. I have had two labs in my life. (Yellow and Chocolate) They have never hurt anyone! Well my chocolate one did but that person was sitting on our couch holding a cat. All she wanted was the cat. Now my friend has a German and he is MEAN! She thinks my dogs are better even!

These are the BEST dogs in the world, not the worst. I have had labs all my life and they are so sweet. They are extremely intelligent and very easy to train.

Labs are amazing pets.

Dees dogs r SO cute and friendly

28 Lhasa Apso Lhasa Apso The Lhasa Apso is a non-sporting dog breed originating in Tibet. It was bred as an interior sentinel in the Buddhist monasteries, to alert the monks to any intruders who entered.

I have a Lhasa and they tend to nip if you don't train them. But that's with all dogs. Also not the smartest of dogs, I'll catch mine barking at her shadow, the neighbors cat, the empty shampoo bottle, nothing whatsoever. Don't get them for young kids, they think they are toys. Make great bed warmers, alarm clocks and friends.

This breed bit my grandson.

I agree... horrible dogs! Very sneaky and do NOT mind at all even with obedience trainers. Keep away from children they are jealous dogs.

They were bred to be bed warmers, alarm dogs and pillows. They can bite, not very smart at all.

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

They are the best dogs ever! If you got bit then stop teasing them it's rude! I love them my husky was abused by his previous owners so we saved him. I will always love him!

Whoever said "Huskies are by far the worst breed," then you need to learn why people like huskies, and don't be rude about them. They are good dogs. Just because you hate them doesn't mean they aren't good pets. I respect your opinion, but they are cute, and also good. Maybe they CAN behave.

Huskies are by far the worst breed. People want them just because they are pretty but aren't prepared for the shedding or physical demands they need. If you live in a colder climate and have tons of time and energy to put them to work then I'm sure they're great, but I have worked in a vet office an am now a groomer and can tell you without a doubt that is the number one breed my coworkers and I dread coming in. It doesn't help that we are in ky, where it's border line abusive to even have a husky b/c of the heat, but on top of that 95% of people who get one have NO idea what they are getting into and will raise their puppy wrong, then abandon it at a shelter once it is too big and out of control. Almost every dog that has been banned from my salon for biting an associate is a husky. Not to mention the obnoxious, non stop whining and barking. Definitely not a breed for just any one

Do you people know who Samson the savage is he is the reason why I love huskies so much - Puppytart

30 American Bulldog American Bulldog The American Bulldog is a breed of utility dog. There are two specific types of American Bulldog, Standard and Classic; additionally, there are also hybrids of the two types.

Along with the pug, these are one of the best dogs ever!

31 Cavalier King Charles Spaniel Cavalier King Charles Spaniel The Cavalier King Charles Spaniel is a small spaniel classed as a toy dog by The Kennel Club and the American Kennel Club.

WHAT IS WRONG WITH THE PERSON WHO POSTED A CAVALIER ON THIS LIST! I happen to know a few sweet Cavalier King Charles Spaniels. I'm sure Animal Planet begs to differ with your opinion. A Cavalier is number 3 on the top 10 best small dog breeds for children, STATING THESE ARE VERY EASY DOGS TO TRAIN AS WELL AS AVERAGE SHEDDING AND NOT A LOT OF MAINTENANCE. Dogs 101 clearly states that these are great dogs for small children and if you love beautiful faces and kisses this is the dog for you.

Cavalier King Charles Spaniels are the BEST dogs in the world.

Why are they on here? I love the breed and it is a cute and cuddly lap dog.

This dog is the sweetest! she is constantly licking me and can be trusted without a leash. She is amazing with children and doesn't overeat, either

32 Jack Russell Terrier Jack Russell Terrier The Jack Russell Terrier is a small terrier that has its origins in fox hunting. It is principally white-bodied and smooth, rough or broken-coated.

Most people buy these little guys thinking they will be small and quiet. What you don't realise is that they need a lot of exercise and firm, consistent training. They are an athletic breed that will work and play with you tirelessly for as long as you want and longer. These awesome dogs aren't a casual handbag dog. They need love and looking after. If this is provided then they are the sweetest things you've ever come across. Trust me, my two year old Jack is my best friend. No matter what you say about them, I'll always love this sturdy, fearless, amazing little terrier.

I have 1 and she is so cute and loving, she curls up with me on the couch and only barks if someone is banging on the door and that is to worn me and when I tell her to stop and sit down she does it straight away she is the best dog in the world. She begs and does tricks. If one bits blame it on the owner they ovisly don't care for it properly

As much as I love all dogs, including the jack Russell, If I were to get another dog, than a jack Russell wouldn't be my pick.

BARK, DIG,CHASE, KILL, REPEAT. That's all this breed knows. They can not be trained. They are calculating, cold blooded killers. I couldn't love mine more.

33 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.

People treat these things like babies, not dogs... So they think they run the house and anyone in it. I hate these little things.

No! Cute dogs that my brother loves! Take them off the list!

Stupid, loud, obnoxious, aggressive, annoying, they bark way too much, they're aggressive, they're just annoying, yappy little puff balls that no family should have!

This is not true! They are awesome!

34 Bichon Frise Bichon Frise A Bichon Frise is a small, hypoallergenic breed of dog of the Bichon type, and is a member of the Toy Group in the UK.

WORST. BREED. EVER. Don't waste your time, buy a Siberian Husky instead.

Love this dog

So annoying! Doesn't even look like its own breed. Looks like a miniature poodle. Looks uglier when wet. - RafeTheCoolest

The smaller version of the curly coated Goldendoodle

35 Akita Akita

My akita is extremely friendly with children, but she hates most black people and mexicans. She also just acts like a giant stubborn toddler, she refuses to move off of the neighbor's lawn when their dog is out. I'm surprised that this is 30 on the list, they are stubborn, annoying, and extremely jealous around other dogs. Akitas are sweet and cute though...

Lol! proud, aloof, annoying but fun


36 Greyhounds Greyhounds The Greyhound is a breed of dog, a sighthound which has been bred for coursing game and Greyhound racing.

Good dogs as long with the right owners.

I have 2 Italian Greyhounds and they are on of the loveable and best dogs ever they are not violent if you're not violent and if you let them run every day they will be the best my 1 dogs fastest is 56km/h

Sure, they must be tough to look after but that's just because most owners don't get JUST HOW MUCH THEY MUST RUUN

Greyhounds need a lot of room to run but like to cuddle and snuggle under blankets with kids. I never owned one but am thinking about getting one in a couple of years. I would get an Italian greyhound because they live longer. I think they are cute dogs. Please tell me if I should get one. I am considering a beagle, pug, greyhound, and a boxer because I had 2 and they were loving. Tell me please. Go dogs! ❤️

38 Miniature Schnauzer Miniature Schnauzer The Miniature Schnauzer is a breed of small dog of the Schnauzer type that originated in Germany in the mid-to-late 19th century.

Violent with other animals, children, strangers. Won't listen, hard to house train and backtracks often even with professional trainer, destroys everything, never stops howling and barking at everything and everyone and thus far it's 8 months old. Avoid.

I've had Schnauzers all my life and they've all been amazing. Sweet, gentle, loving, loyal...even the females. They're fantastic little dogs, I can't believe the comments here!

They are good with kids really there's one in my town and he's good with kids

Not the worst, but I wouldn't want one. My friend has one and he is ugly as hell. Isn't mean, but if you want a dog, why not get one that's actually pretty? - Stormskies

Looks meaner then my little rottweiler puppy, and my grandmas beagle, and my grandmas beagle loves to bite and scratch. would not get a dog like this - Lucretia

40 Australian Cattle Dog Australian Cattle Dog The Australian Cattle Dog, or simply Cattle Dog, is a breed of herding dog originally developed in Australia for droving cattle over long distances across rough terrain.

My son agreed to put one of thes mongrels in his back yard which was fenced in for a week. It virtually destroyed the wood on the back of his house. It chewed on every piece of wood siding on his house in the fenced in area. Plus it's very hyper-active. This dog should only be on a farm or ranch.

This entire list is Bologna. The Dog displayed is a Blue Heeler (distant relative to Austrailian shepherds) which are among the greatest breeds of dog ever. Incredibly smart working dogs with excellent senses of sound, smell and vision and memory that makes other breeds appear to be handicapped.

Best breed ever mine is great with people loves to chase frisbee an ball smart alert protective an brace An loyal wish people had those qualities about them

Super smart and need a job to do. Only destructive if lacking proper stimulation
