We Rank The 8 Most Loyal Dog Breeds – Did Your Dog Make The List?

There’s a reason the dog has earned the name “man’s best friend.” Dogs are some of the most loyal creatures found on the planet. While most people would make the argument that their dog is the most loyal, there are some breeds that are generally considered to be more loyal than others. Did your dog make the list?


The Lovely Lassie

It really should come as no surprise that the breed that starred as Lassie tops our list. A herding breed, Collies are known for being loyal and protective of their family. They’re great with children and other animals, making them a great choice for a growing family.

The Loyal Labrador

The ever-popular Labrador Retriever is the next breed on our list. One of the most popular dog breeds the world over, the lab is highly intelligent, active, gentle, good with children and extremely loyal to his owner and family.

Small But Mighty

The Yorkshire terrier may be the smallest of the terrier breeds, but he stands tall when it comes to being loyal. These little powerhouses make great watchdogs since their protective natures won’t hesitate to alert you if there are strangers around.

A Happy Guy

Like their cartoon counterpart Snoopy, beagles are sweet, intelligent, gentle, and always happy to see you. Beagles are extremely loyal to their owners. They’re often used by law enforcement because of their extraordinary sense of smell and eagerness to please.
