The 10 Extreme Loyal Dog Breeds

Dogs are humans' best friends, but friendship takes many forms.

Some dogs don't seem to know much, or care, who feeds and walks them, falling in love with every stranger they meet.

But not these races. They are loyal to their people, through and through.

Here, we've not only selected 16 of the most loyal dog breeds, but we've also collected the stories of some of the most devoted dogs in history, from Hachikō.

Who guarded Tokyo's Shibuya train station every day for ten years in search of his late Waghya guardian, who jumped onto his guardian's funeral pyre to die by his side.

Great Pyrenees

Like many sheepdogs, the Great Pyrenees is a faithful watchdog with a protective instinct.

They're also basically your own Lucky Dragon, perhaps perfect for the Falkor name? This breed, and the Kuvasz like it, are stately, calm, intelligent, and extremely cute.

Both Great Pyrenees and Kuvasz are excellent family breeds as they are very patient.

They require a lot of training from a young age, continuous exercise, and mental stimulation, just like their herding brothers.

Collie

The Collie is one of the most dedicated breeds. Lassie was a Collie for a reason! No other breed is as likely to alert the masses when Little Timmy falls down a well.

The Shetland Sheepdog ("Sheltie") is also on the list, as a diminutive version of the Collie.

German Shepherd

It's not a surprise to see the German Shepherd on this list.

German Shepherds are loyal to the pack and so intelligent that they are also one of the most employable breeds around!

Three cheers for the working dogs.

Akitas

These large, dignified dogs of Japanese origin are alert and courageous, but also affectionate and patient with children (though aloof with strangers).

They definitely need a lot of early socialization. As cubs, they look a lot like bear cubs!

Brittany

This playful breed is "a keen worker" who would love to do any job you give him.

Many refer to them as spaniels, but they are actually closer in personality and breeding to a pointer or setter.

Saint Bernard

If we've learned anything from Beethoven (and Beethoven 2-5), it's that Saint Bernards are loving and loyal family dogs.

This is literally the breed that rescues you in the snow from an avalanche and wears whiskey around your neck. YEAH.

Mastiff

Mastiffs are one of the oldest dog breeds and have a history as guard dogs in ancient times. Known as gentle giants, Mastiffs are loyal, affectionate and friendly, yet protective.

Did we mention they are gigantic? A small Mastiff can weigh 100 pounds, while large ones can weigh over 200 pounds.

Mastiffs have adorable forehead wrinkles and huge drooping jowls (which create a LOT of drool). Regarding coloration, mastiffs can be grey, fawn or brindle, depending on their lineage.

Kuvasz

The snow-white Kuvasz is the majestic guardian of Hungary's herds and companion of kings.

A working dog of impressive size and strength, the majestic, bushy Kuvasz is a beautiful, intelligent, deeply loyal yet defiant breed.

Imposing, impressive, majestic, massive, powerful, pick the adjective you like best, they all apply to the Kuvasz (pronounced KOO-vahz; the plural is Kuvaszok, pronounced KOO-vah-sock).

This snow-white, lushly coated cattle guardian can reach 30 inches at the shoulder and weigh anywhere from 70 to 110 pounds.

Despite their size and strength, the Kuv are quick and agile protectors when faced with a threat.

Fans of the breed say that the elegantly proportioned head is "considered the most beautiful part of the Kuvasz."

Shetland Sheepdog

Also known as a Sheltie, this is an extremely intelligent, fast and obedient shepherd from the remote and rugged Shetland Islands of Scotland. Shelties bear a strong family resemblance to their larger cousin, the Collie.

The Shetland Sheepdog is a small, active and agile herding dog, standing between 13 and 16 inches at the shoulder.

The long coat is wiry and straight, with a dense undercoat, and comes in black, blackbird, and sable, with white markings.

The coat, along with a long, wedge-shaped head; ears small, three-quarters erect; and the broad-chested torso and flat back give Shelties the appearance of a miniature Rough-coated Collie.

Bright and enthusiastic Shelties are easy trainers and world-class competitors in obedience, agility, and herding trials.

They are sensitive and affectionate family dogs, well adapted to the climate of the home. They like to bark and tend to be reserved with strangers, two qualities of an excellent watchdog.

Pitbull

Pit bulls are controversial when it comes to temperament, in part because they can be extreme dogs. For many, they make ideal companions: playful, eager to please, and moderately active.

He is a fun and generally obedient type of dog who loves to play, especially those that are challenging and physical.

Pitbulls are also generally quiet in the house and don't bark much. He is a fair watchdog and protector. although stubborn.
