Despite their smooshed look, Pugs are affable and lively family dogs. This small dog can be hyperactive, but they're primarily couch potatoes who prefer to cuddle with their owners. Before adopting a dog, make sure your family can handle the constant snoring.


Rambunctious Beagles are high-energy pups that need lots of exercise (both for their body and their brain). They also need lots of supervision, as the Beagle’s keen sense of smell can lead them into mischief. But these happy dogs thrive under the care of an active and doting family.


Big dogs like Newfoundlands have big hearts. The gentle Newfie likes households with room for a 100-pound dog and is patient with tiny children.


Cavalier King Charles Spaniels are great family pets because they are loyal, affectionate, and patient. Cavs train well with positive reinforcement due of their intelligence and want to please.

The Collie has smooth and rough coats. Collies are great family dogs regardless of fur kind. One of the smartest dog breeds, they're loyal, gentle, and tolerant with kids. Though not hyper, they're lively dogs that thrive in outdoor families.


English Bulldogs are terrific family dogs, but like French Bulldogs, they don't like heat and may have breathing problems due to their flat face. Though they need regular exercise to keep healthy, Bulldogs are sluggish home dogs who like to nap.
