Top 5 Dog Breeds that suit your personality the best

Often, people like a particular breed of dog more than the others, and there’s a scientific reason for it. It’s not the dog, it’s mostly you – because dogs are loyal and very accommodating creatures that are only capable of loving unconditionally, but we humans, on the other hand, can be a little too conditional on the love front. So, make sure when you bring a furry friend home, you know what you’re getting into and that your personalities are a good match. 

A German Shepherd will claw its way into anyone who dares threaten you physically, while a Golden Retriever will paw its way into your heart like the goofballs they are. While the former is the top guard dog, the latter is a top cuddle dog. One’s used for protection, while the other is used for therapy. 

And these were just one of the differences between just two of the most popular dog breeds. Let’s dive into the puppy world where it’s all about chasing squirrels, fetching sticks, and being a goofy good boy/girl!
