Another recognizable breed, the Bloodhound will steal your heart with its mopey looks and wrinkled head. Even though these dogs can grow to be huge, they think they’re lap dogs!

Don’t let their cuteness fool you — the Australian Terrier is a scrappy little dog! Known for being wonderful show dogs and their all-around cuteness, the Aussie also like to hunt rats and snakes.

This is a regal breed of dog, highly sought after as show dogs. While they are obedient and smart, they sometimes prefer hanging out alone instead of with their human companions.

7. Chow Chow

Chow Chows are ridiculously cute and often described as bear dogs. This description might be more apt than you think; while some can be good pets, others can be territorial and rather aloof.

8. Chihuahua

This breed was all the craze in the late ‘90s. Now, they are enjoying life outside of fame, being cute as always.

9. Bull Mastiff

The Bull Mastiff can be quite an intimidating dog to look at. They were brought to America in the 1860s to be guard dogs, but nowadays, they tend to do better as cuddle buddies because they make wonderful pets.

10. Bichon Frise

The Barbet is similar to a poodle. Used as a hunting dog, this fluffball earned the nickname “Extremely Muddy” by the French for reasons you can probably guess. This breed is smart, so regular playing won’t do — they need something to stimulate their mind.

14. Vizsla

The Vizsla has been around forever (some say as early as 800 A.D.), and for most of their history, they have been used as hunting dogs. They make good pets, though you have to make sure that they get proper exercise daily.

15. Pharaoh Hound

The Pharaoh hound looks exactly like its name suggests — the two high pointed ears resemble a crown. This is also an extremely fast and athletic dog breed. While these dogs make wonderful pets, they still have a great deal of hunter in them, so you’ll have to keep an eye out to make sure they don’t go chasing strange animals!

16. Spitz

This breed looks like a fuzzier fox, but it certainly doesn’t act like one. These make great pets, but they do need to be watched around other dogs, as they can be quite aggressive.

17. Daug

This is a cuteness overload as the Daug is a mix between a Dachshund and a Pug. Taking traits from both parents, Daugs get the best of both worlds. They are super friendly and smart and have plenty of energy.
