The 9 Dogs Women Love Most

Women are suckers for fuzzy animals, and although some women prefer cats, there are for more women interested in dogs. This can be due to their companionship, protective nature, sweet personalities, or their cuteness factor, but its true all the same. A woman will always be enthusiastic over a dog that is safe for their family and very loving, which is one of the key perks women look for in a pet.

9. Dachshund

Long in the body and nice and small for practicality, the Dachshund is a very popular breed on its own, but women absolutely love the cute floppy ears and sad eyes this unique German breed of dog shows off. Available in a long-haired, short-haired, and wire-haired variety, women can also pick out the size and color since the dachshund comes in mini or standard size in fifteen colors and color combos to match one’s personality to their dog’s coat, and women love accessorizing, don’t they? The cute factor is really strong with the Dachshund.

8. Poodle

Whether it’s their friendliness or cute coat, the poodle is popular among women for a variety of reasons. The poodle can come in a toy, mini, or standard size and is considered hypoallergenic, which means even those who have the worst allergies can find a safe companion in this frou-frou pooch. The poodle comes in a variety of colors as well, which can depend on the size of dog and can have a variety of different types of markings, adding to its personality in a unique way.

7. Yorkie

The Yorkshire Terrier, or Yorkie, is a very cute and small long-haired dog that has a very characteristic hair style and the instincts of a hunter but the friendly nature of a companion. The Yorkie comes in a toy breed size, so it’s excellent for those living in small spaces like apartments and town houses and can be easily picked up when a girl needs to put her pet in a carrier or the car. Girls who love to dress their dogs up will love the opportunity to put a bow in its hair or trim its coat just so, which can be worn long or slightly shorter everywhere but the head.

6. Beagle

Beagles are very friendly hunting dogs that come from the hound family. They are great pets for families and are very protective of their owners. The beagle has a short coat and is a small dog that stands at no more than 15 inches. Most beagles are tri-colored, but there are varieties that are two colors instead, which is nice if one has an opportunity to pick one as this will give their beagle a one-of-a-kind look over others. Beagles love exercise, so athletic women will enjoy taking this breed for a run.

5. Chihuahua

Aside from the number of celebrities that have them and the fact that chihuahuas are a novelty breed in terms of their attractiveness in the eyes of women, they are also quite loving and affectionate dogs that come in short and long-haired varieties. They belong to the toy group of dogs and weigh no more than 6 pounds unless their pedigree isn’t pure, which is also why some chihuahuas are deer shaped heads instead of all having the trademark apple head. Chihuahuas are excellent therapy dogs and are very loyal, making them the perfect pet for those who like snuggling and doting on their dogs.

4. French Bulldog

Very muscular and far less wrinkly than the English Bulldog, the French Bulldog is a great companion that is a great pet for indoors. This gorgeous short-haired breed requires little exercise but can be overfed, so owners should be wary of overfeeding their Frenchie, which should weigh 28 pounds or less if at a healthy body weight. Women love these dogs because they are sweet and love quietly sitting with their owner. They are definitely a lap dog breed that appeals to that side of women that needs to be needed.

3. Golden Retriever

Just like in “Marley & Me”, women love Golden Retrievers. They’re excellent companions, protective, and very family-friendly, so women are very happy to bring one in when they have children or are about to have them because the Golden Retriever is so mild-mannered. These dogs love exercise, and this is a necessity due to their medium-large size. These working dogs are highly intelligent and are very in tune with their owners’ needs, making them a preferred breed for guide dogs and therapy dogs for those with special needs.

2. German Shepherd

German Shepherds are very protective and make great companion dogs. They are also well-behaved with children they have become accustomed to and guard the family home with a fierceness that makes them very palatable to women due to the feeling of safety they can have when they own a German Shepherd that will alert them to intruders and other unwelcome guests. Athletic women will really appreciate the German Shepherd for its need for regular physical activity and its playful sense of fun that keeps owners on their toes.

1. Labrador Retriever

The most popular breed in all of the US for both men and women, the Labrador Retriever is often known as the Lab, and is a great family dog, working dog, companion, and guard dog that will love playing with your kids in the backyard while alerting its masters to any suspicious sight or sound if it threatens the family. Another breed used for guide dogs, Labs are friendly and highly intelligent, which makes them very obedient and trainable. Women love taking this dog along while they roller blade or for a jog in the park, which is imperative in order to prolong this awesome breed’s lifespan while minimizing boredom for both animal and owner.
