Top 10 Dog Breeds of 2021

December 5, 2021

There are over 350 dog breeds world over, however, the American Kennel Club recognizes only 195 of these breeds.

Of these significantly large numbers, here are the top 10 dog breeds of 2021:
1. Goldendoodle
The Goldendoodle is the result of a cross between the Golden Retriever and the Poodle. Regarded as a “designer dog,” this breed is intelligent, affectionate, low-shedding, and thrives in excellent health.

2. Yorkshire Terrier
The Yorkshire Terrier is the perfect lap dog, but is beyond just a cute bundle of fur. This breed is smart, picking up tricks easily, and brave too.

3. Golden Retriever
Golden retrievers are known for their loyalty and affection. They are a popular breed thanks to their high intelligence and focus which makes them perfect as guide dogs.

4. Labrador Retriever
The Labrador Retriever bursts with energy and is a great family pet. This breed has a very kind nature, is intelligent, and totally lovable.

5. Shih Tzu
In spite of the small size, this breed stands elegant. They are quite inactive, making them perfect for adults, and they are friendly and cuddly.

6. Pomeranian
The small frame of this breed doesn’t affect their ability to be excellent watchdogs. They are smart, easy to train, and great kid lovers.

7. Teddy Bear (Shih Tzu x Bichon Frise mix)
Round eyes, curly hair, hanging ears, and black, brown and white colors shows aptly why they are regarded as “Teddy Bear.” They are adorable, playful, and a top choice for people with allergies.

8. Pug
Pugs have a small stature, but are pretty muscular. They are adorable, and require some special care especially in extreme weather conditions. Pugs do love to eat, so you would have to watch their weight closely.

9. French Bulldog
The French Bulldog requires only low to moderate exercise, and is super adorable. Great option for urban residents.

10. Pomski (Husky x Pomeranian Mix)
This designer dog breed is a mix of playful and adorable. Their cuteness, which is their selling point, does do a great deal of selling.
