TOP 7 most loyal dog breeds
When you think of a dog as an animal you automatically think of loyalty. Have you ever wondered: Are all dogs as loyal as we think? It's time to revisit that universally acknowledged fact.
Earlier on, we wrote about what are the best hunting dog breeds, but what are the most loyal dog breeds? Keep reading to find out!
#1 Great Pyrenees
Like many herding dogs, the Great Pyrenees is a loyal guardian with a protective instinct. This breed, and the similar Kuvasz, are majestic: they are calm, smart, and extremely floofy. Both the Great Pyrenees and Kuvasz are great family breeds, as they are very patient. They do require plenty of early training and ongoing exercise and mental stimulation, like their sheep herding brethren.
Collie is one of the most devoted breeds. Lassie was a Collie for a reason! No other breed is as likely to alert the masses when Little Timmy falls down a well. The Shetland Sheepdog (“Sheltie”), also makes the list, as a pint-sized version of the Collie.
The Rottweiler got a bad reputation in movies but these sturdy guardians are some of the most loyal dogs around. They can be reserved with strangers, but love their people. And that’s what you want, right?
#4 German Shepherd
It’s not a surprise to see the German Shepherd on this list. German Shepherds are loyal to their pack, and so smart that they are one of the most employable breeds, too!
Beagles have also enjoyed a fair amount of movie notoriety, so their reputation for being loyal has already spread. This companionable breed has been many a man’s best friend for centuries. Sure, Snoopy had his own thing going, but in the end, he was very loyal to Charlie Brown.
This dignified dog breed is called “profoundly loyal”. These large, puffy dogs of Japanese origin are alert and courageous, but also affectionate and patient with children (though aloof with strangers). They definitely need plenty of early socialization. As puppies, they have a strong resemblance to bear cubs!
#7 Labrador Retriever
This list would not be complete without this family dog. They’re retrievers, after all. They always come back to you! Lab people know that these sociable, hardworking water dogs love their people to the point of wanting to lick their feet at all times.
