10. Labrador retriever
Hey there! Can I lick your ice cream cone? Can we see your friends with the kids who drop food? Oh wait, can we see my buds at the dog park? Never mind, I think I want to play fetch, collapse, and then snuggle. I know it seems like I’m the extrovert in overdrive, but at the end of the day, I’m one of the most loyal dogs – and smartest – on the planet. I have so many things I like to do. And if we’re honest, I probably have more friends than you. Just kidding! Ultimately, I always choose you.
11. Golden retriever
Hey, did you see my buddy take first place at the dog show? We’re always the fan-favourite at dog shows because we’re just so darn loveable and friendly. I love that people adore us for our easy-going nature yet appreciate our more serious side as service dogs. We’re basically the whole package: easy-going, smart, cuddly, playful, dependable and trustworthy. Best of all: we’re true-blue devoted to you.
12. Norfolk terrier
Who knew one of the most loyal dogs would be in such an adorable package? I may only be about 25cm tall and 6kg, but I’m a fearless, spirited and lively companion who is not afraid of the big C – commitment. My pack dog camaraderie gives me an extra helping of sweetness. When humans compare me with other terriers, they say I tend to be a little more outgoing. My close bond with you might make me jealous of other people at times. When I feel jilted, I might start digging holes to let you know!
