Have you heard of Akita loyalty?
If you’ve ever seen Hachi: A Dog’s Tale, then you’ve witnessed true Akita loyalty.
The movie tells the story of Hachiko, a dog that waited at…
Are you a Star Wars fan?
Did you just die of adorableness the first time you saw an Ewok? I know I sure did.
Unfortunately those big, mystical teddy bears don’t actually exist. (Thank you, fantasy.) But the little creature that inspired them is alive and well in the real world! Yep, you guessed it:

And rightly so. The Brussels Griffon is a rather rare breed that could use some more recognition. He’s a tiny toy dog with a huge heart for snuggles and affection.
Do you like cats?
If not, then beware the Basenji. He may look like a dog, but truth be told–he’s actually part kitty. And he flaunts his feline side shamelessly.
In fact, he’s got so much cat in him that this crazy breed refuses to bark! Yep, that’s right, he’s barkless.

Ah, the Beagle.
A happy-go-lucky little hound dog with the cutest face of the canine world. These pups may have been bred to hunt, but they are huge heartthrobs, too.
Which explains why they’re the 6th most popular dog in the U.S. Heck, even Charlie Brown had one (little Snoopy was a Beagle, after all!).
But before you fall in love with those floppy ears and puppy-dog eyes, read up on the breed. He’s a dog that lives to smell and loves to “sing”. Which can be problematic if you prize your sanity.
