15 Dog Breeds Are The Most Loyal Of Them All


15 Dog Breeds Are The Most Loyal Of Them All

The best companion you can ever ask for.

Animals have been recognized to show loyalty to the people that care about them. Although certain animals tend to… switch sides to the nicest ones, dogs are particularly loyal. It appears that dogs’ brain quickly associates our scents with positive emotions.

You’ve probably heard of the story of ‘Hachiko’, a Japanese Akita breed who loyally continued to wait his owner for 9 years 10 months at the train station where his owner would usually return to. What other breeds are just as loyal?

The Japanese Akita deserves the top list of any loyal dog breed due to Hachiko’s touching story. These profoundly loyal dogs are devoted to the owner and family they serve.

2. Golden Retrievers

These dogs are just goofballs – the American Kennel Club calls these adorable Goldens as the most popular breed due to their cleverness and ‘fiercely loyal’ attitude.

3. German Shepherd


These dogs often appear scary to the kids due to their fierce demeanor and common portrayal and use in the law enforcement field. They are some of the most intelligent and fierce fighter dogs, but more importantly than that, they are loyal.

When it comes to Collies, most people can remember the story of Lassie. She’s a fictional character, but to be able to be featured in a movie tells a lot about their cleverness. The AKC, however, can proudly says that this clever breed is also ‘stuff of legends’ for their gracefulness and loyalty.

6. Boxer

They are fierce fighters and were bred to be hunters. But more than that, they are just inherently full of energy and ready to play with your and your kids all day long (talking about the perfect carer!). But the most amazing stories come from boxers who have fought against dangers for their owners and family.

7. St. Bernard

They can be really huge and scary to small children, but once you get to know them, they are such a big softie. St. Bernards are charming, soft and a popular breed for rescue dogs. They are also loyal breeds that won’t give you up for anything!

8. Great Pyrenees

Dobermans spell the best security and caregiver in a single word. They are huge and often portrayed as fierce, but they are just these balls of energies that need a lot of time playing (keeping the kids occupied with something that is not gadget-related?). They are bred as war dogs due to their high level of alertness, making them especially great guard dogs.
