America's best 12 dog breeds

Australian Shepherd

Due to their athleticism, Australian shepherds are common on hiking trails, especially in the West

Pembroke Welsh Corgi

Queens love Pembroke Welsh corgis. Queen Elizabeth II surrounded herself with sturdy tiny dogs. Their "butts" with docked tails are on T-shirts, caps, and even coffee cups.


Dachshunds can be smooth-haired, wire-haired, or long-haired, but the public recognises them as cute "wiener dogs." "Saturday Night Live" star Kenan Thompson had a wiener dog named Nathan.

German Shorthaired Pointer

German shorthaired pointers are enthusiastic and make great running and hunting partners, so active people love them. 




Rottweiler Frei loves the breed, calling it "the middle linebacker of dogs." He added that before adopting a dog, you should know its temperament and training demands.


Beagles are independent and adore people, yet their keen noses help them find contraband at customs checkpoints and bedbugs at hotels.


“I always figure they're the cartoonist's dream because of that look—that it's kind of sour expression but they're the furthest thing from being sour.”


“People just have a misperception about poodles because of the haircut,” Frei complained. “They're great athletic dogs—I'd have a poodle in a minute.”



German Shepherd

German shepherds were famous in the early 1900s with Strongheart and Rin Tin Tin. Both dogs have Hollywood Walk of Fame stars.

Golden Retriever

Golden retrievers, like Labradors, have never won best in show in prestigious American dog shows like the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show or the National Dog Show.

French Bulldog

“They've got somewhat of an elderly face almost, with a few wrinkles in it, but they also appear fresh and lively. Frei stated their expressiveness is distinct. 

Labrador Retriever

He added that Labs flourish as working dogs because of their family-friendly and hunting-friendly traits. Labs are bomb and arson detection dogs.
