Dogs and cats have two different characters: a dog is a loyal animal, while cats are independent. Cats can be loyal based on their choice, not humans or others.

Yes, Cats and dogs can make a friendship. But not all dogs can be the best friend of cats.

Top ten the most popular dogs in the world and in the USA are slightly different. Here are in the America (list from American Kennel Club): 

1. Labrador retriever
2. German shepherd
3. Golden retriever
4. French bulldog
5. Bulldog
6. Beagle
7. Poodle
8. Rottweilers
9. Yorkshire terrier
10. German short-haired pointer

The question then, of these 10 breeders, which one is a good friend of cats? The answer from Gibeault (2018) are following:

- Labrador retriever
- Golden retriever
- Bulldog
- Beagle

Thus, 4 only of 10 (ten) most popular dogs are good friends of cats, at least they could exist together.

However, we are happy to hear, if you have non popular dogs as list at above that the best friend of your cats. Have you?

  2. Ours is a cat house. I have occasionally wondered how they would react to a dog. Canines bring such a different energy to a home. It's hard to imagine.

  4. An interesting list. I have been brought up with English Springer Spaniels. Such a friendly dog but totally crazy. Some weird choices on the list but that's the way it goes. Best wishes.

  11. HAHA.....Cool list. I have a rat terrier and him and his sister (cat) love each other. Also, since mom's passing I inherited a chihuahua and chihuahua mix, they also get along great with the cat. Although, she likes to mess with the smaller chihuahua! Thanks for sharing.
