  • you need to be more specific otherwise you'll get opinion based answers
  • Bichon Frise
  • The wiener dog.
  • We all have our favorites, but I believe what you are looking for in a pet will determine the breed. For people with allergies, Miniature Schnauzers are great because they don't shed and have a great temperament and are wonderful with children.
  • A pappilon - my dogs dad and its grandad was a pappilon and came first in the crufts! xx Theyre soo cute! xx
  • Beagle
  • Labradors 'cos their so friggin intelligent!
  • I am partial to Cocker Spaniels and Australian Cattle Dogs. I think all dog breeds are great though, they all have something to love.
  • Dalmatian. Jake the Dalmatian was the best dog I have owned. Dalmatians protect their owners. When my wife was pregnant and I would come home late he would sleep next to our bed. When I made it upstairs and in the bedroom he would literally stand over and growl until he saw it was me. When our child was born he would sleep under her crib. Nowhere else but under the crib. Jake passed due to cancer and two years later my daughter still cries when she thinks of him. I hope there is a doggy heaven.
  • I really like Bull-terriers. They have a forehead that just turns into their nose. They're very muscular and exciteable. Remember pet cematary...or the target commercial dog? That's a bull-terrier!

  • G'day Deestar404, Thank you for your question. I like most breeds of dog except the fierce type of dogs. My favourite breed is a labrador as we had several when we were growing up. They were great with kids. Regards
  • Weimaraners. If they aren't your favorite breed of dog it's because you never owned one.IMO

  • Corgi terriers, but probably because I own one.
  • dalmatians - Best. Dogs. Ever.
  • Greyhounds. They are total sooks, love company, love your bed probably more that you do, take over your couch and your life, give you complete trust and total loyalty (except where food is involved - then all bets are off!), don't smell, are quiet but some can be barkers (just like men really). And did I say they love you as much as you love them...well they do..... Can you tell that I am owned by a couple of them?

  • Pugs and English Bulldogs!!! (I also love golden retrievers, Frency Bulldogs, and German Shephards!)
  • Not into little toy dogs, sorry. MY kinda dog would look more like this
  • Pharaoh hound is my dream dog. It's probably different for everyone. I have a blue heeler and a miniature pinscher. They are great dogs but you need to have a lot of space for a blue heeler to run and min pins are like ferocious cats.
  • A Sheltie, Shetland Sheepdog
  • american bulldogs, they are protective and very loving at the same time. just big smushy face clowns!
  • Heinz 57.
  • Chow Chows
  • dogue de bordeaux
  • I like pound dogs. I have a Lab-mutt and a shaggy little thing that looks like Benji at the moment... they're a little more unique than dogs bred to a standard, and you get the added bonus of saving a life. I love all breeds, but STRONGLY support adoption.
  • Huskeys Mutts or Dalmatons.
  • The one that is loving you RIGHT NOW! There are many different breeds I personally love, including crossbred and mixed bred dogs. However, I would never probably choose a dog for myself or for anyone else simply based on a single breed. I look first at what the dog is intended to do in the family or person who wants the dog. Is it to be a working dog...a real working dog...herding animals, hunting? Is it a family who wants a high energy dog and who WILL be committed to providing ENOUGH activity to meet that dog's actual need? It it an older person, or someone with small children? Are there already OTHER companion animals in the home, and what type if there are? Is it a breed that practically "trains its self" with a bit of clear support being given...or is it one that REQUIRES an experienced and not easily frustrated person...someone who is able and willing to provide positive support and get creative in figuring out WHAT positive action/reward is needed by THIS DOG to help them "join up" in the training exercise. For the most part I believe that ALL DOGS are best for SOMEONE...but not all people or home environments are good for ALL DOGS.... The TEMPERAMENT of each individual dog is my own personal scale to weigh in all breeds or mixes as to which one is best for each person, or family.
  • Depends if you have kids, or if your by yourself etc. Personally the best dog for our family is a Boxer. He's a grwt family dog good with kids and a good protecter!!!!!
  • For the family: Great Pyrenes or New Foundland For an active individual: Lab or Whippet For something exotic (depending on climate): Chinook, Lundehund, Leonberger, Kangal (aka. Anatolian Shepherd by some) Lap Dog: Bichon Frise General all purpose dog: Golden Retreiver
  • depends what you want? family? hunting?
  • German Shepherd
  • Best breed of dog for whom? For me, the best breed of dog is whatever needs me. I have had some wonderful companions in rescue dogs, but of course it's harder to be fussy about the breed if you go that route. Of course, not everyone is going to be satisfied with rescue dogs. The best breed is really a matter of personal taste. If you could give me some insight as to what you value, I could be a lot more specific with my answer to you.
  • Pavement special / Heinz57. Mum is a dog and dad is a dog. the reason they are better than pedigrees because they do not get sick that easily and are not prone to lots of illneses

  • a bulldog
  • A Scots Terrier. There's just something about a Scottie dog...
  • The Republican.
  • There isn't a best dog breed! It depends what sort of life you have and what time you can give to your pet. they were all bred origionally for a pupose and mongrels and cross breeds make great dogs as well. Think about the size of your house/flat, think about the length of walks you want to go on, think about how much grooming you want to give and think about/research what a breed was originally bred for. the most intelligent dog is the Border Collie so its learns fast and is great in sports such as agility. But I wouldn't recomend one unless you want to go for 2hr walks and are prepared to spend hours teaching it to keep their active mind amused. I personally have a rather brilliant sheltie but I do agility and work him and have trained him. But he has a long coat and grooming is required, people who own shelties rarely get rid of them, you won't find many in a dog shelter which should say something, you will find tones of border collies! Nearly all terriers are brave,independantly minded and love to hunt/sniff and make good pets,they are not less intelligent just have a different agenda often to their owners. Labradors and retrievers are popular for a reason, being bright and willing to work but you wouldn't want one in a small house and they do need a lot of exercise or they get fat and sluggish and they will leap and role in any type of water because that is what they were bred for. Greyhounds and whippets tend to go in straight lines very fast but don't need hours of excerise though you will need patience in training, they are sensitive and loving. Toy dogs often came from hunting stock and althugh small and fun they can still have the boldness of a hunter and size doesn't bother them. All dogs need to be taught manners. I remember walking a pekinnese and a German shepard for my mother. The German Shepard walked happily round a lake with me, the pekinnese (a white one) shot of into the lake, swam out and tried to kill a swan! We thought he was a gonna but eventually he gave up and met us on the otherside. Never underestimate a small dog!
  • well i recon the pitt bull terrier but there illegall so the next best thing is the staffordshire bull terrier as i breed them and they are brilliant protectors of the home and person any questions please get back to me,quinney
  • I'd say a Shih-Tzu. They are very loyal dogs...and alot! of fun
  • I would say, If you do not have any experience with canines then you should go with a Labrador retriever. You should really do your research on every possible dog you are looking at owning. Small Terriers have alot of defiant issues if not trained properly. I would not recommend you getting a Pitbull or AmStaff if you have no knowledge on the breed. It takes alot of understanding in canine psychology to successfully raise one in most cases. You also should be a dominant person. I have two APBT's and I can tell you first hand it takes alot of time and energy to properly train them, they are the top of the line in the bully breeds, they are very dominant.
  • I have two dogs. A beagle shepard or collie mix, and a pitt bull and they are both great dogs. My beagle mix is very, very smart but can be aggressive at times and is some what unsettled by strangers. My pitt loves people and animals of all kinds. She is very loving and intelligent.The two dogs respond diferantly to training. The beagle needs a firm hand and the pitt needs to be encouraged. I trust my pitt around children or in any sittuation. The beagle mix is a bit scetchy, he does seem to be all bark and maybe is just affraid of strangers. I think the pitt is fearless and this is the reason she is so friendly to eveything. At the same time she would probably be the one to protect her family and teh beagle would just bark if ther was an intruder in our house. All in all if the beagle mix were a little more couragious and a bit bigger it would be the absolute perfect dog for my lifestyle and our family needs(protection, loveing family member incredibly smart).
  • To me the Chihuahua is the best of all breeds of dogs. They are small enough that you can take them with you everywhere. Try putting a Great Dane in your purse or pocket and taking them into the grocery store.
  • I love German shepherds. They're so smart and loyal. Great guard dogs too! =]
  • Ah, geez... I adore my pit bulls, but my dachshund is wonderful also! They are the only breeds I've ever owned. I'll have to go with the pit bull, because they make me feel safe when I'm home alone, can cuddle and play like a lapdog puppy, and have times where they just mellow out and watch a movie with you. ((no offense, Sam! I love you too, little one!))
  • I feel there is no best because it's all in the way that you raise them. But I also like the mutts.
  • gordon setters or doberman pinchers next to a dalmatian
  • German shepards Dobermans are pretty good also
  • German Shepherd (Bitch)
  • They all are!! but my favorite is American Bulldog
  • One of the best breeds, that you can have inside an apartment and such, are Pugs. I love pugs!! But a larger breed a German Shepard or Rottweiler.
  • That depends on what you want it for. You wouldn't take a Husky to go rabbit hunting and you wouldn't ask a Beagle to pull a sled. I'm particularly fond of Labradors, although not everyone would want to deal with the hair. They take a lot of exercise and training to deal with their natural exuberance too, unless you want them to destroy your house and flatten your kids. But they are smart, willing, affectionate, loyal, kind and will serve as a guard dog in a pinch.
  • They say the greyhound and st charles dogs make the best pets as they are obiediant and easily trained.
