Top 5 Best Dog Breeds

Having been writing articles about dogs for more than a year now, I have come to discover the characteristics and personality traits of various dog breeds. Some dog breeds are frighteningly huge but actually possess gentle personality. Some can be so small yet absolutely fearless and ready to face the world on a moment's notice.

I do not consider myself a dog lover, but that was before I discover the splendor possessed by these furry four-legged creatures. Now, I have my own favorite breeds and considering having one when the right time comes.

Who can resist the smallest breed of dog in the world? This breed tops my list, especially the short-haired or smooth coat variety. Do not be deceived by this breed because beneath their tiny frame and luminous eyes, chihuahuas are alert dogs with terrier-like personality. They are highly intelligent, graceful, confident and self-reliant. Also known as purse dogs, chihuahuas are good household pets even in families with children. I'll be delighted to spend a decade or more with this breed.

Who doesn't know the world's famous beagle? As a kid, I'm a huge fan of snoopy without me knowing anything about beagles or dog breeds. Now, I'm considering Snoopy's kin as potential pet. This breed has excellent hunting skills and gentle and merry disposition. They are great in scenting, eager to please and make good watchdogs.

I'm amazed with this breed because of their good work ethic. Apart from their common role as disabled assistants especially as guide dogs for the blind, Labradors are also used in hunting, tracking and detection, carting and therapy work. Growing old with this breed will make life relaxing yet full of excitement and fun.

I really like this breed primarily because of their appearance. Weimaraners, also called gray ghost have short, sleek coat in distinctive color. I feel like there is some mystery behind this breed's eyes and that is something I want to unravel. Not only they possess aristocratic features but are also trainable, friendly and obedient member of the family.

Can you ignore this beautiful and elegant looking ball of fur? Some says that this breed is a perfect example of beauty without brains but Poodles are actually exceptionally smart and active. They are extremely people-oriented and excellent watchdogs. Think about having an elegant, confident and proud dog as a pet! Isn't it amazing? I tell you, you'll feel beautiful too. lol!

For others, my choices may not be the best but it doesn’t matter. This is my blog anyway. You can post your own favorite in your own blog.
