SUMMARY
– If you're one of these people and you want your pooch to look after your home, you should probably consider a Rottweiler, Doberman Pinscher, or German Shepherd.
– If you have a big family full of kids or just welcomed a newborn into this world, it can seem challenging to pick the perfect dog breed. But this is the territory where a Labrador or Golden Retriever would be completely unbeatable!
– Consider getting a Pointer or a Setter since they’re pretty much built for running. If you want something a bit smaller, a Jack Russell Terrier can be a good choice as well.
– If you’re looking for a furry cuddle buddy who will always be happy to laze around on the sofa with you, a French Bulldog or a Maltese is your perfect fit.
– Some breeds deal with being home alone better than others: think about getting a Shar Pei or a Basset Hound.
– If you’re retired and have decided to welcome a dog into your home, a good option for you would be a Boston Terrier, a Pug, or a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel.
– . If the dog is small, it doesn’t necessarily mean that it’ll be happy living in smaller space. Consider getting a Yorkshire Terrier or a Bulldog for a small apartment.
– Retrievers, Collies, and Spaniels are always happy to have company to play with, so they’ll likely make a great match with your other pets. Terriers or breeds typically used in dogfighting can sometimes be a bit complicated.
– Most Terriers can take the heat, and they come in lots of sizes. At the same time, St. Bernards, Samoyeds, and Boxers won't feel good in hot weather.
– Breeds that prefer a colder climate normally have a thick double coat and more body fat. So, as you can probably guess, a good choice is a St. Bernard, Malamute, Husky, or Samoyed.
– German Shepherds aren't a good breed for you due to their dry skin, which results in a lot of dander built-up. The same goes for long-haired breeds as well.
– Getting a dog for the first time ever is both exciting and nerve-racking. There are so many breeds to choose from, and they’re all so cute and adorable! If you’re new to the dog-owning world, then a Labrador, Border Collie, or Poodle will be perfect for you.

    1. My Akita was amazing it died when I was 14…..it had a car accident…..I couldn’t stop crying ….nothing is sadder than losing your dog

    2. +riggin and jiggin ive never had a dog but would love one, dont want a small dog but one thats easy for a first time owner to raise.

    3. exactly we have a doberman and shes an angel. she literally doesnt bark all and since my bf and i are both in greek life at our college she was socialized with people and other dogs. since she was socialized and trained at such a young age (we started when we got her at 3 months and she was already crate trained) she barely gets up when she hears the door open😂

    1. madi Ik, I have a Pomeranian and a kangal, and my pomeranian’s actually pretty dangerous. I remember once my nephew went to pat him and he bit him on the hand making him bleed. He’s very bad with children but is never aggressive with me or my mom, he lets me touch him when he’s eating and I can even put my hand in his food bowl and take his food away from him at any given time and he won’t care, but when it comes to other people he will literally bite their fingers off.

    2. godmode 1 Also statistically the most dangerous. Don’t get one if you have children period. There are plenty of better options.

    3. Τζακυνθος Φριτοπουλος actually the most dangerous dogs are chihuahuas, if you really want to go into statistics. But since they’re such small dogs they usually don’t get put on a news channel when they bite a child or adult.

    4. Depends on how you train them , i had one who was a lapdog so sweet he was even allowing cats to play with him but once i order him he will riip your arm off if you touch me lol

  1. Or, you could find a nice mix breed at a rescue… Mix breeds tend to have less health problems than purebred dogs, as they are more genetically diverse… and you’d be saving a life. And no, a lot of dogs do not like children. I’d say a good deal of dogs are very frightened of screaming kids. Just a quick announcement from your friendly neighborhood shelter employee.

    1. +DurbonGold As is the case with any pet. Most surrendered animals at shelters are a result of lack of education and preparedness on the behalf of the owner. You always want to prepare yourself as much as possible for a new pet, because in the end it’s their life on the line.

    2. +NotSoGrimReaper Shelters put these disclaimers on dogs to protect them. if we notice a dog is acting excessively aggressive towards other dogs in the shelter that we think it is a bite risk, we say so at the time of adoption, so adopters know of this aspect of their dog’s history. If a dog bites another dog/person and breaks skin and is brought into a shelter, by LAW the shelter is required to euthanize the animal, because it is deemed to be a danger to the public. So to avoid that, we disclaim what we’ve seen to give animals the best chance of survival.

    3. This video is explaining why people buy certain dogs. If you warched the video you would see that people want certain persinalities in their dogs and want to know nire about them so they vuy bred dogs. Not everyone can or wants to buy a mutt. Everything is conpletely random when you get a dog from a shelter. Shelter dogs also tend to have a ton of problems

    4. That’s necessarily not true, purebred dogs are bred so they have little to no health problems at all making your argument not logical in any sense. You’re more likely to get a well working dog, with no health problems, and a caring breeder that wants to keep tabs on the dog to make sure you don’t give them up to a shelter and don’t further breed them unless given permission to. Purebred dogs are bred for a reason, so that you can keep the original dog at its purity, so it doesn’t lose the natural temperament of that breed of dog.

    5. Epitome Fox I am going to be getting a purebred german shepherd from a reliable breeder in a few months, and I am happy to say so. You can have your opinions but you shouldn’t spread false facts that also don’t add up.

    1. YES I know this great Dane (insert name for privacy reasons) and he’s the sweetest thing I swear he thinks he’s the tiniest dog lol

  2. Lucky I don’t have a dog I want a Doberman pincsher but I can’t convince my parents to get me a Doberman not even a 300-500 $ beagle 1 like = 1 Doberman pincsher😢

    1. German Shorthaired Pointers are the best hunting dogs out there ^-^ I have one that’s a year old and he’s just absolutely amazing 💙

    1. Billy Schroedl I’m getting one in three months,I’ve done so much research on them and they’re honestly the perfect dog.

  4. Where is the Pit Bull. first before any of you say, Pit Bulls Are NOT bad, the reason why they treat
    you bad is because 1.bad training 2.bad owner 3. Not raised properly etc, plus if you say A Pit Bull was chasing you, well if you want to know it because Pit Bulls were naturally breed to hunt ground hogs and ground hogs run away so its also breed to chase down the animal while it’s RUNNING, if you catch my drift
