All dog breeds are beautiful, but some are generally considered more handsome than others, either for their striking eyes, luxurious coats, pretty colors, or graceful body lines. Meet the 20 breeds that most people find beautiful, and see if your dog makes the cut.
A true snow dog, the Samoyed has probably the prettiest coat of all dog breeds. Their gorgeous white coats are long, thick, and fluffy and help them stay warm in cool climates. But they need regular grooming to remain so luxuriant.
A walking fur ball, the Pomeranian is obviously very pretty with a dense, attractive coat that comes in white, brown, or fawn. Even more pleasing, they require little grooming and are easy to train. Besides, Pomeranians are extremely affectionate and adorable, and you'll be happy to take them anywhere.
A Chow with a full, well-groomed coat is an absolute sight to behold. They stand out for several key defining features, such as a lion-like appearance, darn cute perma-squint, and a noticeable blue tongue. However, Chows are somewhat aloof and keep to themselves.
Poodles come in different breeds, but all of them are beautiful. Their coats are among the most fabulous and can be groomed to various styles. Though they look comical, they're actually one of the smartest breeds and can be used for agility trials, nose work, or anything involving water.
Clad in flowing, silky coats ranging from red to mahogany to strawberry blonde, Irish Setters are uniquely gorgeous and not at all stuffy. They're popular pets, given their energetic, enthusiastic, and fun personalities. However, they're also trouble makers and can keep you on your toes.
With a round head, small ears, and a thick coat, the Shiba Inu is one of the cutest Japanese dog breeds. They come in various colors, such as red, black, brown, and cream, and look absolutely cuddly, so most dog owners can't help giving them praise, love, and cuddles.
The Dalmatian became popular thanks to the movie franchise, 101 Dalmatians. Their polka-dot-like patterns make them recognizable, iconic, and incredibly photogenic. Most known as firefighter companions, Dalmatians are actually also great running partners.
The German Shepherd has probably graced the big screen more than any other dog breed. They're so popular in Hollywood not simply because of their intelligence and work ethic. They're also ridiculously handsome with a wolf-like coat and build.
Like the German Shepherd, the wolf-like Siberian Husky is also one of the world's most attractive dogs. Their striking blue eyes and silky coats that come in unusual colors (like the gorgeous chocolate brown) melt lots of hearts.
The Saluki is an attractive breed thanks to its physical features, including their elongated snout, lithe body, and elegant tail. They love to lay their fluffy ears on your lap and are well suited to a high-throttle lifestyle.
Dressed in a magnificent flowing white coat, Malteses turn heads wherever they go. These little cuties are elegant, smart, adventurous, and make friends quickly with everyone they meet. But you have to groom them regularly to make them look their best.
Few breeds exhibit such a perfect combination of a light and elegant build with a remarkably long and silky coat as the Afghan Hound. Their long faces are also quite pretty and distinctive. But they're a little tricky to train, shed a lot, and need a vast space to run.
Known as the "silver ghost," the Weimaraner is very striking with their recognizable short-haired gray coats. They also feature soft and sympathetic eyes which can melt even the coldest of hearts. But inexperienced owners should think carefully before raising a Weimaraner as they're demanding and require a lot of exercises.
With glorious silky coats and sweet eyes, the Papillon can elicit smiles from everyone they meet. But the most remarkable things about Papillons are their upright tufted ears. Besides, their ridiculously cute expressions can make you forget all your troubles.
Clad in short- to medium-length black-and-tan coats, Rottweilers are absolutely handsome creatures. Their heart-melting yellow-brown eyes make them even more beautiful. Rotties can be a good family pet because they're pretty protective and affectionate.
If you're fond of wolf-like dogs, you'll love Alaskan Malamutes. They're large, muscular, and clad in long, dense coats. Their mixture of white, grey, and black tones and upright ears accentuate their wolf-like looks. But they are high maintenance and aren't suitable for first-time owners.
Short-haired, big-eared, and graceful, the Pharaoh Hound is a bit hit-or-miss with lots of dog lovers. They're unique and one of the world's most expensive dog breeds. Their comical and slightly bizarre expressions make them even more lovable.
Dobermans are good-looking, but their big size, powerful posture, and pointy ears often cause trepidation in those they encounter. They're quite affectionate and love crawling right up on your lap for petting. They're also very sensitive and may cower and hide after a harsh word from their owner.
Akitas are obviously imposing, with their broad shoulders and muscular build exuding strength and competence. But their ultra-thick and fluffy coats soften this image, making them one of the most attractive breeds out there. Unfortunately, they shed heavily and require regular grooming.
Many breeds are appealing, but few share the Great Dane's combination of size and beauty. Often considered the largest breed in the world, Great Danes also have a dignified beauty that is pretty impressive to behold. But they're heavy droolers, which offsets their noble looks.
