Intelligent, playful, and friendly, the breed remains a favorite with dog lovers worldwide.

      Akitas have long occupied a special place in Japanese culture, where they’re venerated as family protectors and symbols of good health, happiness, and long life. But it’s Helen Keller who’s credited as being the first person to bring one to the United States after receiving it as a gift upon a trip to Japan. The breed is wary of strangers and other dogs but is playful, silly, and fiercely loyal when it comes to their family.

      – Temperament: affectionate, bright, sensitive
      – Life expectancy: 10-13 years

      An American original, Chesapeake Bay retrievers are hunting dogs. Athletic and protective, they need plenty of regular exercise and socialization lest they become grumpy and ill-mannered. The dogs also make excellent therapy dogs and have been employed by the police force as bomb sniffers and search-and-rescue dogs.

      – Temperament: affectionate, dignified, even-tempered
      – Life expectancy: 10 years

      Unique to Southern Africa, Rhodesian ridgebacks were originally bred to track and bay lions. Today, these faithful friends would rather run around and play with their families. What remains the same, however, is their domineering and strong-willed nature, so these dogs need to undergo obedience training from puppyhood.

      – Life expectancy: 9-10 years

      Often called a “nanny dog,” Newfoundlands are very good with children. Hallmarks of the breed include their sweet nature, an affinity for affection, and gentle yet protective temperaments. It doesn’t hurt that these giants also look like plush toys.

    • #11. Weimaraner

      Canva

      – Height of dog: 25-27 inches (male), 23-25 inches (female)
      – Weight of dog: 70-90 pounds (male), 55-75 pounds (female)
      – 2019 popularity rank: #39 (of 193)
      – Temperament: friendly, fearless, obedient
      – Life expectancy: 10-13 years

      A German pooch, Weimaraners were bred to be big-game hunters. While they aren’t used for hunting in the same way these days, they’re still active and athletic with a can-do attitude. Weimaraners love kids and long to be a bona fide family member—lots of attention will go a long way in warding off bad behavior.

    • #10. Collie

      – Life expectancy: 6-10 years

      Belonging to one of the oldest canine clans in the world, mastiffs have been around for centuries. The giant breed is patient, loveable, and loyal, but, as with all dogs of this size, adopting one is not a commitment to be taken lightly.

      Cane corsos (which translates from Latin to “bodyguard dog”) date back to ancient Roman times, where they acted as guard dogs and working animals. Dominant and protective, these pooches are all muscle and can look particularly intimidating. However, with the right training, plenty of exercise, and a healthy dose of love, they can be loyal and attentive to their families.

      – Height of dog: 25-27.5 inches (male), 23-26 inches (female)

      – Life expectancy: 7-10 years

      Built for a life of hard work, Bernese Mountain dogs are sweet, lovable, and playful. They love being outdoors and are not at all suited for city or apartment life. Once they develop a connection with their owners, it’s often a connection for life, as they are unendingly loyal.

      Canva

      In Germany during the 19th century, a tax collector named Louis Dobermann sought to breed an intimidating protector that could accompany him on his rounds and dispel any hostility.

Today, these pups still act as guard dogs and develop strong connections with their family members.

      – Life expectancy: 7-10 years

      The “Apollo of Dogs,” Great Danes literally tower over most other dogs and, when they stand on their hind legs, over most people as well. But don’t let their formidable appearance scare you off; Great Danes are sweet and lovable, gentle with kids, and eager to please their owners.

      – Life expectancy: 10-12 years

      – Life expectancy: 9-10 years

      It is essential that Rottweiler owners train their dogs correctly from puppyhood in order to ensure that the pups don’t become overly aggressive and hostile.
