The Top 10 Manliest Dogs

The Top 10 Manliest Dogs

Sure, a little rodent-sized dog might look good on Paris Hilton’s lap — but manly men require a manly dog. The following are the top 10 choices for guys seeking a manly canine companion:

1. Black Labrador
A Black Lab is at the top of the list for those seeking a stereotypically manly dog. Labs are among the best breeds for playing fetch, and this dog is sure to charm all around it with their human-like facial expressions.

2. Bloodhound
The Bloodhound’s amazing ability to follow a scent has led to them being a top choice among hunters. Just like us, Bloodhounds can be extremely stubborn and doggedly (no pun intended) pursue what they want.

3. Bulldog
Just like their manly owners, a Bulldog can be a really tough guy. Bulldogs are notorious for never relenting, but they are also loyal to the core. One doesn’t get to be the mascot for the U.S. Marine Corp unless you truly pass the manly test.

4. Cane Corso
The Cane Corso is an extremely muscular breed, and it is also a trusty and reliable companion. This dog traditionally helped men hunt and farm, and now it mainly serves as a companion to manly men.

5. Doberman Pinscher
These dogs are often associated with police work and other manly endeavors, and it is one of the most visually stunning dog breeds. Like many manly men, despite their ferocious reputations they are actually highly intelligent and mostly docile beings.

6. English Mastiff
The word “mastiff” derives from the old English word meaning strength. These dogs are as strong as the manliest of men, and they vigilantly protect their owners. Just like us manly men, English Mastiffs require large amounts of exercise and activity or they are prone to acting up when they get bored.

7. German Shepherd
The movies and television shows has led one to believe that these dogs are solely used for activities like sniffing out drugs, but their owners know that under their hard exterior they are just modest and proud beings — just like the best of manly men.

8. Husky
Huskies were traditionally used as sled dogs, and their toughness has been amply documented in the snowy hinterlands. These dogs are as intelligent as their wolf cousins, and their majestic looks are sure to attract the attention of females around you.

9. Rhodesian Ridgeback
This little known breed is among the toughest in existence. In fact, in Africa they have been known to stand up to all other animals — including lions. Not overly large in size, these dogs possess high intelligence and cunning akin to a Special Forces warrior.

10. Rottweiler
Just like many of us manly men, this breed has been vilified by the media portraying it to be dangerous and wild. However, the truth is that Rottweilers are sociable and fiercely loyal to their owners.
