Dogs Ranked Highest in Loyalty

Labrador Retriever

The Labrador retriever was originally bred in Newfoundland for the purpose of retrieving ducks and helping fisherman.

The Lab's double, water-resistant coat serves to keep it warm and dry in snow, ice, and muddy puddles. 

Great Pyrenees

Pyrenees Mountains have relied on the Great Pyrenees to keep an eye out for predators and protect their sheep and other livestock.

The Great Pyrenees, like other breeds bred to protect flocks, is fiercely protective and extremely vigilant. 

Great Dane

They are one of the largest and tallest dog breeds, but are surprisingly mellow and social.

Great Danes, on the other hand, are constantly on the lookout for threats and, if necessary, will act as a protector.

Doberman Pinscher

Dobermann was looking for a dog that could guard his family and was extremely faithful when he developed the Doberman.

 The modern Doberman is exactly that—a wonderful family dog who develops strong attachments to its human family. 


Anyone who has watched a Lassie film or episode knows that the collie is one of the most loyal dog breeds. 

Collies are much gentler with kids and other animals than other herding breeds, including cats. 


Chihuahuas are known for their stubborn personalities and their inability to accept their diminutive stature.

The breed is devoted to its loved ones to the point where it may get territorial if anybody else comes near.
