Labs are the most popular breed in the entire world. They are primarily a working-class breed and are very loyal dogs. They have a very friendly demeanor and a low temper.

The Golden Retriever is an extremely intelligent breed. They are primarily used throughout the world as seeing-eye guide dogs for the blind. Golden Retrievers also make great hunters, showroom dogs, and family friends. They make a wonderful addition to the family as they are said to be the most friendly breed out of the entire canine family. Goldies are only recommended to those who have a yard to keep them in, as they are an extremely energetic dog. They also shed a lot of their coat in the summertime to keep cool. If you live in an apartment, this dog should be avoided.

German Shepherd Dog Breed

The German Shepherd is primarily a working dog. They are used as police dogs, guide dogs, and sometimes as herding dogs. They make a great pet for any family who has enough open space for them. Much like the Golden Retriever, the German Shepherd is not recommended for anyone who lives in an apartment. German Shepherds require a lot of exercise every day in order to be a happy dog. They are an extremely intelligent breed and can do a host of tasks. If you need an effective guard dog, look no further than the German Shepherd.


The Beagle is a wonderful companion for anyone who loves the outdoors. Beagles were originally used for hunting and tracking, so they tend to have a nature similar to Foxhounds. They are usually a very vocal dog due to their hunting nature and will bark quite often when excited. It's rumored that Beagles have gained their popularity primarily due to The Peanuts comic strip and the character Snoopy. The Beagle will make an excellent family pet.

Poodle Dog Breed
The Poodle is one of the most popular toy breeds in the world. Originally from France, the Poodle is an intelligent and loving breed. Most owners of Poodles will meticulously style their coats and trim them in elegant, unique ways. Poodles make excellent family pets but don't seem to mesh well with other larger breeds. Some Poodles seem to forget their own size sometimes and try to intimidate larger dogs. They also tend to be a bit more barky than other breeds.
