The Best Types of Dogs

Published: March 23, 2014

This is a purely subjective list of my favorite types of dogs. Dogs are great for lots of reasons, and there are lots of different types of dogs. So I figured: why not rank my favorite types of dog? Pretty self-explanatory, I think. So here we are: the best types of dog.

  1. Mutts!

    Each mutt is special and unique. Plus, rescue dogs need the most love! They have great personalities, and although they sometimes require a little more loving care if they come from bad homes, there really is no such thing as a bad dog. So go to the shelter and get a best friend for life!


  2. Rottweilers

    They are adorable, big, and cuddly. They have great personalities, awesome color schemes, floppy ears, and they like to herd things (sheep, family members). Unfortunately they do not live a long time, like many large dogs. But that's just all the more reason to love them while they're here. I currently own a Rotty mutt so I'm a little biased.

  3. Pit bulls

    They need lots of love too because there is so much discrimination and abuse against them. They have big happy smiles, great personalities, are very warm and loving, and don't deserve their bad reputations at all. Considering how many of them need adoption, I hope everyone considers getting a pit bull for their next dog, because a lot of them need homes.

Well, there you have it. Basically a shameless pitch for dogs in general and for adopting shelter dogs in particular. I like cats too but dogs are just so much better, although any animal adoption is a plus. So next time you go to the shelter, pick out a pet that's right for you and give them a forever home.
