The ‘Most Popular Dog Breeds From Best to Worst’ – Where Did Your Dog Finish?
Is there anything more inflammatory than telling someone their dog is a crappy breed? Be careful what you do with the following information . . .
A new study ranked 87 of the most popular dog breeds from best to worst. They based it on how much they cost, their intelligence, their health, their lifespan and how easy they are to groom.
And the best dog in the world is...the Border Collie. They're the most intelligent breed, they live an average of 12-and-a-half years, they're relatively cheap, and they're pretty easy to groom.
The rest of the top 10 dog breeds are: Border Terrier...Brittany...Cairn Terrier...Welsh Springer Spaniel...English Cocker Spaniel...Cocker Spaniel...Papillon...Australian Cattle Dog...and Shetland Sheepdog.
The worst dog is...the BULLDOG. They're one of the less intelligent dogs, only live an average of six years, have a ton of genetic health problems and cost a lot to buy.
The rest of the bottom 10 dog breeds are: Saint Bernard...Great Dane...Mastiff...Bullmastiff...Irish Wolfhound...Bloodhound...Chow Chow...Alaskan Malamute...and Boxer.

Don't feel bad if YOUR dog didn't make it in the top ten...neither of mine did either. I have Maddie the Lab puppy and Harley the gigantic German Shepard...and neither of them made the cut.
And here's kind of a pic of Harley and Maddie playing:
