21 Most Affectionate Dog Breeds


2. Labrador Retriever

The Lab is a dog breed recognizable by every human on the planet – that’s right, even non-dog people can easily recognize a Lab thanks to numerous artists and photographers that have captured their impressive image a vast number of times.

They are usually depicted as loyal companions, waiting patiently by their owner’s side – and that’s just what they are. They are also America’s #1 breed registered with the American Kennel Club. Labs possess an adorably sweet nature and they’re not strangers to hours of cuddling and comfortably lying around the house with their owners.

Their nature makes them excellent therapy dogs for visiting homes for the elderly and hospitals while their intelligence makes them an ideal assistance dog for the handicapped. In fact, Labradors are so kind-hearted they would gladly greet an intruder and eagerly show them where your most valuable goods are stashed – all with a goal to please everyone around them.
