Best Dogs to Have as Pets

Published: February 25, 2015

Not all dogs are a good choice, you need to adopt a dog that fits your life style.

Here are some of the most adaptable dogs to many life styles:

  1. Mongrel

    Mongrels, mixed breed, or Mutts tend to live longer and have few diseases and complications that pure bred dogs carry due to their limited gene pool. Getting a mutt from the pound will not only save their life, but guarantee you a loyal friend for a long time.

  2. Goldendoodle

    This mix of two friendly and intelligent breeds (the Golden Retriever and the Poodle) created a very fun, relaxed pet that is easily trainable. Another plus is that, like the Poodle, they rarely shed, leaving your sofas fur free.

  3. Corgi


    Adorable, clever and hardy, the Corgi is almost a fashion accessory these days. Queen Elizabeth has quite a few corgis herself. They are smart and independent herding dogs in a short, condensed package. They don't usually have a lot of health issues and can make a great addition to any family.

There are a lot of wonderful dog breeds out there, but many of those great traits also await in mutts. What ever you choose to go with, you should consider checking in with your local shelter before going to a puppy mill.
