Shetland Sheepdog

Let’s clear something up:

Lassie was a Collie, not a Shetland Sheepdog. And yes, the two are different.

Sure, they’re both fluffy and have wedge-shaped heads. But the Shetland Sheepdog, or Sheltie, is about half the size of his Collie cousin.

French Bulldog

The Frenchie has taken the world by storm.

He’s the 4th most popular breed in the U.S. and adored around the world.

Why?

Well, he’s playful, adaptable, and friendly. He’s also a bit of a clown. And a couch potato.

Havanese dog drawing by Dog Breeds List

Havanese

If you want a dog that’s made of silk, then the Havanese is about as close as you can get.

These sociable and happy pups are known for their elegant locks. But fine, silky strands aren’t the only option.

The Havanese is one of the few breeds that can totally pull off the dreadlock look.

It’s not a hairdo you’ll see every day on this pup. (The process of cording a Havanese can take up to two years!)

But if you’re up for the challenge, dreads look terrific on this breed.
