Let's get some things straight:
First, let's just agree that dogs are perfect animals and that any breed of dog could stand tall over all of the other creatures in the animal kingdom. We love them all, but when push came to shove, we just had to place some above others.
Next, there are waaaay too many breeds out there for us to include every single one. We tried to choose the most well-known, popular, and culturally important pups, but certainly may have missed a few. Sorry :(
Be aware that, in some cases, the two authors of this post disagreed on where a breed should be ranked and have added in their own comments to explain their beliefs about why that pooch is too high or too low.
Finally, please be aware that this list is 100% objective and true and not at all informed by the specific biases of the authors. Not even a little bit.
