21 Best Dog Breeds For Owners Who Want Something Different

Best Dog Breeds

Why do we love dogs so much? It could be their unconditional love, never feeling alone in their presence or just having somebody to talk to (sort of). Nothing brightens a day like an encounter with a great dog. Maybe it’s a chance encounter on the street, maybe you are visiting a friend with a new puppy. Better yet, you could be getting your own new addition to the family. With that in mind, we decided to compile a list of lesser-known dog breeds to look out for.

Here are 21 of the best dog breeds for owners who want something a little different. Once you land on a breed, pick a cute name to match from our selection of 120. From pop culture dog names, specifically male dog names, specifically female dog names, to the classically popular dog names – they’re all there and ready to be used on your next furry companion.
