The variety of dog breeds in the world is amazing. Today, their number is approaching five hundred, and obviously, this is not the limit.

"They are all very different," writes News Bytes. For example, there are very tiny ones, weighing up to 500 g, and there are huge ones that weigh more than 100 kg. The same goes for colors, coat length, personality traits, etc."

We decided to highlight the 5 most popular dog breeds, which, according to surveys, are most often adopted by pet lovers, and gave their brief characteristics.

Labrador retriever

Labrador retrievers personify friendliness and care. These dogs get along well with children and have long earned a reputation as ideal family pets.

Originally bred for dog racing and hunting, today Labrador Retrievers fulfill other roles. They are excellent assistants for various specialized tasks and therapeutic work.

Labrador Retrievers do not require special care or conditions, and in this regard, they are ideal for beginners.

German shepherd dog

German (Alsatian) Shepherds were originally bred to herd sheep. Then they began to be used to help the disabled, in search and rescue operations, police work, and as bodyguards.

In general, sheepdogs are very intelligent, loyal, obedient, easy to train, and require minimal care.

Golden retriever

Golden Retrievers are one of the friendliest dog breeds. They are easy to train and eager to please their owners.

The Golden Retriever has an affectionate personality and a beautiful golden long coat. However, due to their gentle nature, representatives of this breed are not well suited for the role of bodyguards.

Pug

Pugs are native to China. These dogs have a specific appearance - they have short, wrinkled muzzles and curled tails. The shiny coat of pugs, often fawn or black, harmoniously complements their compact build.

Pugs have an impeccable reputation for being wonderful companions, embodying charm and affection.

Dachshund

The dachshund is characterized by short legs and a long body. Initially, these dogs were bred to hunt burrowing animals, mainly foxes, badgers, and rabbits.

Therefore, if you have a dachshund, be prepared for the fact that its innate hunting instincts will encourage this playful but stubborn dog to chase all living things, as well as any moving objects.
