A new study ranked the 87 most popular dog breeds based on things like cost, intelligence, health, and lifespan. Can you guess which dog breed was voted the best?  

There is probably nothing as incendiary as telling a dog owner their dog isn’t one of the ‘best’ breeds. So with that in mind, here we go:

A new study ranked 87 of the most popular dog breeds from best to worst.  They based it on how much they cost, their intelligence, their health, their lifespan and how easy they are to groom. And the best dog in the world is:

The Border Collie!  They’re the most intelligent breed, they live an average of 12-and-a-half years, they’re relatively cheap, and they’re pretty easy to groom.

The rest of the top 10 dog breeds are:  Border Terrier, Brittany, Cairn Terrier, Welsh Springer Spaniel, English Cocker Spaniel, Cocker Spaniel, Papillon, Australian Cattle Dog and Shetland Sheepdog.

The worst dog is the BULLDOG.  They’re one of the less intelligent dogs, only live an average of six years, have a ton of genetic health problems and cost a lot to buy.

The rest of the bottom 10 dog breeds are:  Saint Bernard, Great Dane, Mastiff, Bullmastiff, Irish Wolfhound, Bloodhound, Chow Chow, Alaskan Malamute and Boxer.

Being an owner of one of the ‘worst’ breeds, I can tell you that this story makes me none to happy. How about you?
