Top 10 Most Affectionate Dog Breeds  Dogs 101 – Loving Friends

It’s often said that Dog is man’s best
friend. But these breeds go above and beyond with
the affection they lavish upon their humans. Here’s Top 10 Most Affectionate Dog Breeds. Let’s get started. But, before we start, take a moment to like
and subscribe for more fun, fauna facts. 10. Brussels Griffon Originally bred to hunt rats, this former
Belgian street dog is a distinctive and somewhat unusual dog breed. Affectionate and lively, his intelligence,
sense of humor, and air of self-importance keep him one step ahead of his people. This charming little dog steals the hearts
of everyone he meets, and it’s a good thing too. Because he wouldn’t be happy if he wasn’t
getting attention from everyone. 9. Great Dane The easygoing Great Dane, the mighty “Apollo
of Dogs,” is a total joy to live with. Known as the over-grown lap dog, this gentle
giant is as affectionate as they come, often leaning on his person to beg for attention. Despite his sweet nature, the Dane is an alert
home guardian. Just the sight of this gentle giant is usually
enough to make intruders think twice. 8. American Staffordshire Terrier He may look intimidating, but the Am Staff
tends to be a lover, not a fighter. He is an active, intelligent dog who generally
likes people. If you don’t own one, this may come as a
surprise to you, but the Am Staff is known for being people-orientated and loving with
a personality similar to that of the Labrador Retriever. 7. Bichon Frise The Bichon Frise is a cheerful, small dog
with a love of mischief and a lot of love to give. With his black eyes and fluffy white coat,
the Bichon looks almost like a child’s toy. And it doesn’t take long to realize that
the Bichon can be your happiest and most enthusiastic companion. Often seen as the epitome of the “lap dog,”
it’s easy to see why 18th Century French royals were taken with this loving little
dog. 6. Cavalier King Charles Spaniel
The Cavalier’s all-around beauty, regal grace, and even temper mark him as one of
dogdom’s noblemen. The Cavi may be an aristocrat, but he gladly
descends from his royal high throne for a backyard frolic or a squirrel chase. He gets along nicely with children and other
dogs. The Adaptable Cavalier does equally well with
active owners and homebodies—he can be an upbeat athlete or shameless couch potato,
depending on an owner’s lifestyle. 5. Bearded Collie Lively, playful, and good-natured, this animated
breed is famous for the “Beardie Bounce” – a bounding yo-yo leap that represents his happy,
carefree attitude about the world. Often called the “happy herder” because
of his bouncing personality, this collie loves attention. His smile when he greets you says it all – “I
Don’t Know You, But I Love You” 4. Italian Greyhound A miniature of the full-size greyhound, this
doe-eyed dog would rather be giving kisses then winning a race. The Italian Greyhound is sweet-natured and
gentle, yet also exceptionally playful and athletic. This warmth-seeking, comfort-loving dog can
usually be found basking in sunspots or snuggled into soft furniture, often hidden under a
blanket, pillow, or towel. When you own an Italian Greyhound, you need
to watch where you sit, if he’s not sitting on you. 3. Chihuahua This funny little cuddle bug’s favorite
place: Right by his human! Good thing he’s portable. Chihuahuas can sometimes be wary of strangers,
but if you’re his human, you’re HIS human (and he wouldn’t have it any other way!). The Chihuahua dog‘s charms include his small
size, outsize personality, and variety in coat types and colors, as well as his total
admiration of his owner. If you’ve never owned a Chihuahua, you might
see him as snarly and unapproachable. But, when alone with his owner he is a total
cuddle buddy. 2. Labrador Retriever No surprise that this breed made this list. The Labrador Retriever is known for his sweet,
loving disposition, making him among other things a great service dog. The sweet-faced, lovable Labrador Retriever
is America’s most popular dog breed. The Lab is a friendly, outgoing, and high-spirited
companion who has more than enough affection to go around for a family looking for a medium-to-large
dog. Before we get to number 1, let’s not forget
the shelter mutt. Because when you give a dog a home, what they
give back is tenfold! Unlike many purebred dogs, the mutt has no
been bred for extremes in temperament and are more often than not quite well-rounded
in adaptability and personality. If you’re looking for a family companion,
you owe it to yourself to make your first stop a local animal shelter. We publish every Monday and Friday. So, hit that notification icon to not miss
a single fact. 1. Golden Retriever The Golden Retriever is one of the most popular
dog breeds in the U.S. The breed’s friendly, tolerant attitude
makes him a fabulous family pet, and his intelligence makes him a highly capable working dog. A sweet, calm nature is the hallmark of the
Golden. He was bred to work with people and is eager
to please his owner. The Golden Retriever is commonly used for
therapy work due to his friendly attitude toward everyone, even strangers. Want more fun, fauna facts? Go ahead and smash that subscribe button and

  1. You're missing two dog breeds the boxer and the miniature pinscher like the labrador retriever boxers are incredibly outgoing and friendly to everyone even though they sometimes look a little intimidating and like the Chihuahua Miniature Pinschers are a one-person dog that is more than overly generous with its love I have a Min Pin and my sister has a boxer I can tell you just because of Miniature Pinscher doesn't like a stranger doesn't mean it's the same way behind closed doors it is more than loving and would be a great dog for anybody if you want to Labrador but don't want all the hair go get a boxer they don't call him Wiggle Butts for nothing always happy and energetic and sweet there's nothing you can hate about a boxer or Miniature Pinscher

  2. Really? English Bulldog should have at least made the list

  3. all of the breeds are lovely. if u choose by liking the breed, u dont really like dogs. mine is a cairn mix rescue pup, and still adorable, loving and beautiful.

  4. their are so many sweet dogs out there. It must have been difficult to compile a list of only 10 with such fierce competition.

  5. English bulldog should be number 1 , the breed is smothering in affection ,unlike others breeds the male is the most affectionate.

  6. The most affectionate dog breed is the MUTT! Let's stop this breed snobbery that lands millions of mutts in kill shelters.

  7. Your adorable little co-anchor/daughter has the cutest little child voice that Iโ€™ve ever heard. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป

  8. 1. Dont buy a dog from a dog shop they could come from the puppy mills the money u use to buy the dog then it goes to support thr puppy mills, dont look up puppy mills it is very graphic they kill dogs

  9. WOO HOO thank the stars people are realizing AmStaffs are loving and affectionate animals…their reputation as dangerous dogs is grossly exaggerated via the dog fighting craze which is the fault of bad people not the breed. Couple interesting facts: Amstaff (pitbull generic term) is the only dog in american military history to achieve the rank of Sargent (google it), statue of one at Gettysburg of one for that protected wounded soldiers on the battlefield, Petey from the Little rascals also a pit, as well as the RCA dog. They are also used in treatment for ptsd therapy and children's hospitals. They love people.

  10. Just give the list. Not some stupid Preachy shelter message. While most of the dog's I've owned have been mutts and mix breeds don't guilt folks into going to the shelter. They need to figure out what they need in a dog then go from their.Also not ALL mutts have great well rounded temperament. Some are great while some ain't.Oh and just becuase someone works in "Rescue" or animal control don't mean their experts.

  11. although any dog breed can be extremely affectionate, your list seems pretty accurate except it's missing the Engilsh Springer Spaniel. there's nothing this breed loves to do more after a good run than to lay on your lap. They love to be with their people. Chihuahua, I'm sorry, does not belong on this list.

  12. Great video! Hadn't heard of the Brussels Griffon before. Any chance you might do a video on the Top 7-10 smartest dogs?

  13. my neighbor has a golden retriever! when i first saw him he jumped on me and wanted to play so bad๐Ÿ˜‚ every morning i get to pet him a bit before going to work because his owners just ties him up outside their housr lol

  14. Thank you for noticing the pit Bull! Most people think they are so mean, but that is just there breeders, any dog can act like that!

  15. There is really no question with the second and first spots. However, 3rd to 10th are debatable on their specific positions. Nice video btw.

  16. ๐Ÿ‘Ž๐Ÿ‘Ž๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘Ž๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ‘Ž๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ‘Ž๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ‘Ž๐Ÿฟ๐Ÿ‘Ž๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘Ž๐Ÿ‘Ž๐Ÿ‘Ž๐Ÿ‘Ž๐Ÿ‘Ž๐Ÿ‘Ž๐Ÿ‘Ž๐Ÿ‘Ž๐Ÿผ

  17. My dog is a beagle wiener dog mix and he cuddles SOOOOOOO much and is ALWAYS under the covers and right up against my chest every single night. I donโ€™t know what Iโ€™ll do without him. Heโ€™s the sweetest most cuddly dog in the world.

  18. Chihuahuas?!? Really?!? Ok, I know just two (so not representative) but both are aggressive even against their owner. I would have put Boxers (instead) on the list.

  19. You left out the German shepherd one of the most cuddly breeds my dog izzy is a German shepherd mix but she is a smart lovable cuddler and she never gets in trouble if you would believe it shes our baby German shepherds are absolute cuddlers and they are smart

  20. I can't put Chihuahua's high on such a list. Their attitudes are not comparable to Lab's and Goldies. Boxers, Boston terriers, poodles, and others should rank well above ChiChi's. Chihuahua's are my least favorite breed.

  21. I canโ€™t believe that the boxer is not on the list, l always have boxer bitches l have eleven grandchildren and ten great grandchildren and she loves every single one of them. And they have ALL been the same nature, the bonus is that they have all been great watch dogs.

  22. Pits/Amstaffs/Staffies
    before a stranger comes inside: I'm can take you on!
    after the stranger comes inside: LOVE ME!!!

  23. All were great dogs but I can honestly say having had several over the years an English Springer Spaniel can't be beat known as velcro dog my pups are regular cuddle bugs !
