10 Most Popular Dogs in Australia

The Most Popular Dog Breeds in Australia in
2017 Dogs have made themselves and essential part
of human life. From their early days as utility animals to
the more modern role as companion animals, dogs have evolved alongside man, rightfully
earning his name of “man’s best friend”. Across Australia alone, the canine population
is estimated at 4.8 million, with 52 percent of all dogs being purebred. Hi, welcome to Animal Facts. Today we look at the Top 10 Most Popular Dog
Breeds in Australia. Let’s get started. But, before we start, take a moment to like
and subscribe for more fun, fauna facts. Let us know about your doggy in the comments
below. 10. Rottweiler Once nearly extinct, the Rottweiler has become
one of the most popular dog breeds. The Rottweiler is strong and true, with a
loving heart. Affectionately called Rotties or Rotts, a
well-bred Rottweiler is calm and confident. He’s a natural guard dog with a mellow disposition
who is successful, not only in police and military work but also as a family friend
and protector. 9. Miniature Schnauzer The miniature schnauzer, a dog who’s got
it all in one small package: intelligence, affection, an extroverted temperament, humor,
and a personality that’s twice as big as he is. Throw in that mustache and quivering enthusiasm,
and he’ll make you laugh daily. With a Miniature Schnauzer in the house, you’ll
never be alone. 8. American Staffordshire Terrier Loyal, fun-loving, fearless and affectionate,
American Staffordshire Terriers (sometimes called Amstaffs) bring great joy to their
families. Often confused with Pit Bull Terriers, the
two breeds share an ancestral bloodline and were originally bred to fight, but the American
Staffordshire line has become much more gentle in the last 100 years. Despite their reputation as an aggressive
breed, the Amstaff is a true family dog. Loving and playful, this breed will play with
children in the yard, then happily snuggle with mom and dad on the couch. 7. Cavalier King Charles Spaniel The quintessential lap dog, the Cavalier King
Charles Spaniel is a loyal, people pleaser that loves to be around his owners. With his flowing fur and soft brown eyes,
it’s hard to resist his charm. Known for his friendliness and affection,
he loves nothing more than cuddling up with you. He’s energetic, affectionate, intelligent
and has an endearing devotion. 6. Golden Retriever Cheerful, easy to train and eager to please,
the Golden Retriever is what you see in the dictionary when you look up Perfect Family
Dog. Goldens love everyone, especially children,
and get along well with new people and strange dogs. They draw admiring looks and loving pats from
almost everyone they meet. 5. Border Collie He’s fun, he’s energetic, he’s intelligent
and he loves his people. The Border Collie, originally bred to gather
and control sheep, is a people-oriented family dog and versatile working dog. 4. German Shepherd Dog They are popular as family, guard, performance,
police, military, and service dogs. There isn’t much this dog can’t do. Synonymous with intelligence, German shepherds
dogs are easy to train, learning many simple commands in as little as five repetitions. 3. French Bulldog Playful, smart, adaptable, and completely
irresistible, just a few choice words that accurately describe the French Bulldog. The Frenchie will make you laugh. He’s a charming, clever dog with a sense of
humor and a stubborn streak. Bred for centuries as a companion, he’s gained
so much popularity that he’s fast becoming the city-dwellers’ dog of choice. 2. Staffordshire Bull Terrier
Despite a formidable appearance, the Staffordshire Bull Terrier is a lover, not a fighter, well,
not anymore. He is gentle, docile, easy to care for and
always seeking a good time. He needs two things close human companionship
and a chance to play. 1. Labrador Retriever The Labrador Retriever has long been regarded
as the most suitable pet throughout the world. Especially suited for hunting and often trained
to hunt with gun sportsmen, the Lab has rightfully earned the title of a “gun dog.” It is a remarkable working companion that
is used for various purposes, such as physical assistance and personal protection. However, its loyalty and friendly temperament
also make the Lab an outstanding pet. Want more fun, fauna facts? Go ahead and smash that subscribe button and
