The Kerry Blue Terrier is named after their original home in Ireland, and of course, their gorgeous grey-toned coat of fur. Lovable as they are fluffy, these Irish dogs are incredible companions.
Originally bred for pest control, they’re known for making great working and hunting dogs. Their work-like and hunting temperament is a great indicator of their energy levels. These dogs need space to keep them busy.
Teddy Roosevelt Terrier
These guys may be little, but they’ve got big personalities, and are very lively and personable. Teddy Roosevelt Terriers are named after the President who gave them the job of getting rid of mice in the white house while he was in office.
They do best with families who won’t have to leave them in kennels, as they prefer to stay with their humans and can exhibit signs of separation anxiety if left alone (like many other dogs!)
A Cavapoo is bred from a cross between a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel and a Miniature Poodle. Because of their hypoallergenic nature, they don’t shed very much at all, nor do they drool as much as other breeds, which is another trigger for those with pet allergies.
If you love your pooches, but hate the sneezes that comes with it, this might be the perfect dog for you..
A crossbreed between an English Springer Spaniel and Border Collie, Sprollies are a high-energy, active, and super smart bunch of dogs. Because of their personalities and energy levels, they’re not the best breed to have around small children.
Make sure you start the training process early with a Sprollie, and you’ll have an amazing new best friend.
Portuguese Water Dog
Not the most popular sounding breed, that's probably because they're great around watery environments. Makes sense! These smart, curly-haired dogs were bred to help fishermen with all of their day-to-day activities, such as herding fish into nets and even retrieving lost gear.
Portuguese Water Dogs are easy to train and love to please their loving families. They’re still used today for certain water-rescue missions, but they also make wonderful companions.
