Shepherd Dog, Dachshund, Retriever or rather Schnauzer or Pug? The preferences of dog owners are very different. Worldwide there are over 360 recognized breeds of dogs. Dog owners are fascinated from their different characteristics and temperaments. But which species are the most popular in the world?
German Shepherd Dog
Security and self-confidence are the main characteristics of a German shepherd. Besides, the most popular of all dog breeds is characterized by robustness and impartiality. The attentive nature is just as characteristic of the affectionate family dog as a high physical and mental resilience. The courageous, persevering, and reliable dog can also boast a high strength and self-confidence. Thanks to his high intelligence, ability to learn and enormous will to work, he takes on new challenges at lightning speed and is thus suitable for almost any task assigned to him.
Labrador Retrievers usually do everything to satisfy their owner. The owner should in return meet the needs of this lovable breed. They are affectionate and have a happy, balanced nature. Labrador retrievers have a high degree of versatility, but their retrieving and hunting skills are what excite dog lovers worldwide. A broad head with a distinct stop and the so-called otter tail are considered typical breed characteristics.
The cheerful French bulldogs are likeable small dogs that quickly wrap every dog friend around their paw with their charm and the great need for cuddling. French bulldogs are intelligent, smart, friendly, love cuddling and easy to train. Unfortunately, they also appreciate their shortness of breath – often rather short walks and hardly bark. The large, upright bat ears above the angular head are conspicuous, as are the characteristically short muzzle and tail.
The golden retriever has been one of the most popular dog breeds for many years. He inspires families, hunters, service, and rescue dog handlers at the same time. Golden retrievers love the challenge and want a varied daily program. No wonder, because the golden retriever is a passionate hunting dog, used for duck and small wild game hunting. Its well-shaped skull with a distinct stop and its dark eyes under well-pigmented eyelids gives the retriever its typical gentle and friendly expression.
