German Shepherds, French Bulldogs, Brussels Griffons, and Newfoundlands - breeds that are so different, yet equally kind

No matter how you slice it, kindness is what we seek in companion animals, which is sometimes lacking in people. That's why the most popular dog breeds are those that can be good and loyal friends. But which breeds are most likely to show kindness?

Dog experts say that a dog's character largely depends on its upbringing. Still, certain breeds tend to be more friendly and interactive with people. OBOZREVATEL tells you about a dozen such breeds.

Labrador Retriever

For three decades, this breed has been the most popular in the United States and is always at the top. Labrador Retrievers are valued for their openness, ability to get along with all family members and other animals, playfulness, and intelligence.


Regardless of whether you choose an English Bulldog or a French Bulldog as a friend, the dog will become the star of your family. Bulldogs love to be the center of attention and will gladly entertain people with their games. They will do anything to cheer you up.

Staffordshire and Pit Bull Terrier

These dogs are often credited with an aggressive temperament due to their harsh appearance. They can indeed be trained to fight. But this is rather an exception. After all, Staffies and Pit Bulls were bred to be companions. They are very attached to people and are especially tender with children.

Cavalier King Charles Spaniel

All spaniels love to make friends and play with people, but Cavalier babies are capable of special tenderness. No wonder they have been one of the favorite breeds of the English royal family since the 17th century. They are friendly not only to their people but also to strangers and will gladly do anything to earn praise.


Giant and calm as an iceberg, this animal is considered the best nanny of all dogs. Newfoundlands love to spend time with children and can tolerate even their biggest pranks. They are extremely intelligent and easy to train.

Brussels Griffon

These small dogs with a funny beard and wise eyes are deeply human-oriented. Griffons love to watch their owners and keep them company in all activities. They are extremely playful and will gladly keep people company even during long walks.

Golden Retriever

This breed is extremely popular all over the world because of its friendliness and playfulness. Golden lovers call them huge cuddle pillows. This breed is one of the most sociable, and their most inherent emotion is happiness.


One of the world's smallest breeds can demonstrate such devotion to its people that not many giants are capable of. Chihuahuas love physical contact and will sit next to you all day long. They are also quite intelligent and easy to train.

Bichon Frise

A small white ball of fluffy fur is easy to caress and pamper, but energetic Bichon Frises need careful training. In the process of training games, they become firmly attached to their owners and begin to show them their love at every opportunity.

Great Dane

It is said that these giants are actually a cat in a dog's body; they love physical contact so much. Their habit of climbing onto their owners' laps has become legendary. Great Danes are calm and patient, but they can also play tricks on the person they love.
