The Sweetest Dog, Evah!

It’s possible you won’t believe me, but the fact that picked the Bichon Frisé as the number one most affectionate breed of dog is not the only reason I love their article on “8 Affectionate Dog Breeds.” Even so, the Bichon stuff is terrific:
Known for their cheerful disposition and sweet nature, Bichons have been favored internationally since the 14th century, according to the American Kennel Club (AKC). Bichons are a happy, clownish breed that loves activity and spending time with people. They’re also a non-shedding breed and make an excellent option for allergy sufferers.
Well, of course! It’s all true. But who else made the cut?

Bulldogs are “are loveable, gentle dogs known for making wonderful family pets,” collies are “loyal, affectionate” and pugs, vizslas, Irish setters and Cavalier King Charles spaniels and retrievers in general also got the call. The final “breed” is another favorite: “The possibilities are endless when you choose a shelter dog. One thing is for certain, though. If you adopt a dog and treat her well, she will love you more than you could possibly imagine. So get ready for the kisses!” No one can argue with that!
