This gigantic pooch might be one of the most popular dog breeds when it comes to size. Tibetan Mastiffs are the lions of the dog world. With a fluffy mane and a thick coat, these dogs are the OG dogs from the primitive world and come in two types – Tsang khyi and do khyi. Tibetan Mastiffs were bred as guardian dogs for the sheep. Their main job was to protect the cattle and livestock from wild animals. 

This type of mastiff needs a lot of exercises and they are not meant for city life or places that are too hot. This breed is headstrong, smart working dogs that can’t be tamed much(you could try!). It is important to know this breed well and then adopt him because. Without knowing the characteristics and temperament issues of this

The cute Hungarian Vizsla looks a lot like the Labrador Retriever and is a very friendly and happy breed. The most peculiar feature of this breed is its tail. In some countries, the tail of this slender pooch gets docked whereas, in some countries, docking is banned. Vizslas are one of the most cuddly, clingy and affectionate dogs out there. This breed is perfect for families with kids and adults who love the extra dog love. 

They don’t call them Velcro dogs for no reason. Just like their Retriever brothers, they are good pointer dogs and excel in the game of hunting. These gentle souls are quite sensitive so don’t you yell at them or try to be too strict with their training, eh? They come in biscuit fawn colour and have beautiful expressive eyes that can’t be ignored.

This royal breed is famous for being in the league of hunting dogs for the royal families. Weimaraners look a lot like Great Danes but certainly have some differences. They are extremely agile, smart and their sense of smell is top-notch. These darling pooches are often called the ‘grey ghosts’ of the dog world due to their gorgeous grey coloured eyes and beautiful grey coat. They come in tints of mouse, blue or silver grey and have a slender and tall body with long, lanky ears. These hunting dogs are great at pointing and carrying small prey. 

Weimaraners need a lot of exercise as they are hyperactive. You need to utilise their strength, agility and tracking skills with appropriate interactive play sessions. They are the epitome of clingy, weird and funny and love their families with utmost loyalty. Weimaraners need to be busy because they have always been working dogs.

If your uncles and grandfathers resembled any dog breed, it would be this one. They have a wise-looking face that has a beard and empathetic eyes. This cute, little terrier comes in the colour combination of white-fawn-brown-black. Wire Fox Terriers are a ball of energy and need a lot of playtime and exercise. They are pretty smart and agile and need activities that engage their intelligence. 

They need to be groomed from time to time to avoid matting. A lot of these poor fellows get abandoned for being energetic and that is super sad. They also have some hunting tendencies that need to be tamed, but they are a very friendly breed. 



Yorkshire Terrier

This beautiful terrier with long, silky hair will surely win everyone’s heart at dog shows with its elegance and panache. The swishy hair, texture and colour of their help define how good they will be in the dog shows. They need grooming quite frequently as their fur is prone to matting. Most small dogs are feisty and proud and the Yorkshire Terrier isn’t any different. This breed loves attention, is smart and curious and loves barking all the time. They are excellent apartment pets but do need to keep fit due to their size. 

Like other small breeds, the Yorkshire Terrier has many health problems due to its small build. They are prone to a lot of digestive issues coupled with skin and eye allergies. These terriers may have some genetic disorders so they need families that would be able to curb these problems financially. The Yorkshire Terrier is one of the most popular dog breeds when it comes to having the shiniest fur.

We’ve finally come to the last letter of this wonderful series of popular dog breeds. Zuchon is like a cute little ball of curly fur. This dog breed was bred in the United States and is a mix between Shih Tzu and Bichon Frise. Zuchons are friendly, active and adorable people-pleasers. 

They love getting attention but unlike other small breeds, they don’t bark a lot. They are perfect for a life in the apartment and need exercise that isn’t taxing but keeps them fit.
