7 Most Affectionate Loving Large Dog Breeds Dogs 101 – Animal Facts.


You’re Watching Animal Facts “A dog is the only thing on earth that loves
you more than he loves himself.” – Josh Billings. For the most part, all doggies are sweet and
loving, but certain breeds are known for being more gentle and affectionate than others. We’ve gathered you a short list of big affectionate
babies. We present to you 7 Most Affectionate Large
Dog Breeds. Let’s get started, but before we start,
make sure to hit that subscribe button and click the bell icon to become part of our
notification squad. 7. Collie This Scotland native is a sensitive and intelligent
dog, known for his undying loyalty and amazing ability to foresee his owner’s needs. He is a great family companion and is still
a capable herding dog. He is a family dog and enjoys being part of
all household activities. He’s especially fond of kids, and he enjoys
playing with them and protectively watching over them. He will be your child’s best friend. Just like the Hollywood Superstar Lassie,
your Collie would swim through snake-infested rivers to protect your child, but she would
probably rather cuddle on the couch. 6. Irish Wolfhound It might be surprising to some that the tall,
muscular Irish Wolfhound is a big cuddly teddy bear. The Irish Wolfhound is known to be incredibly
patient with kids and loving towards his family. This gentle giant is sometimes calm and dignified,
sometimes playful and silly, always easygoing and loyal. He is friendly with strangers and expects
to be petted. 5. Old English Sheepdog Who needs a pillow or a blanket when you have
a Shaggy Old English Sheepdog in the family? This cuddly canine is perfect because that
thick coat of fur practically demands to be touched. He is a great breed for kids and is known
to be playful, energetic, and affectionate around them. He also has a remarkable sense of humor and
enjoys his fun-spirited antics. If you get your heart set on the Old English
Sheepdog, be prepared to devote about three-to-four hours a week to grooming your hiss shaggy
coat. 4. American Pit Bull Terrier The American Pit Bull Terrier has gotten a
bad name. The evening news just loves stories about
Pit Bull attacks. Some cities have even gone so far as to ban
the breed. But a well-bred Pit Bull, living in a loving
home, is far from the monster he has been painted to be. He is a loving, loyal, clown who makes an
excellent companion. He loves being with people and wants to be
included in all family activities whether it’s a ride in the car, a neighborhood stroll
or a romp in the park. In a loving family, a Pit Bull is a sweetheart,
which many owners describe as a big baby in a dog’s body. 3. Greyhound People are often amazed by the Greyhound’s
gentle and quiet disposition. But those that know him call him the 45 mph
couch potato. He is tolerant of children and, being non-aggressive,
will usually walk away from annoyance rather than snap or growl. In spite of his great athletic ability, the
greyhound is quite happy to spend most of the day sleeping. He’s quite happy curled up next to you on
the couch. Most Greyhounds are politely reserved with
strangers and prefer to lean against their owner’s leg rather than approaching people
they don’t know. 2. Labrador Retriever What list of gentle dogs would be complete
without the quintessential Labrador Retriever? He is an excellent family dog. The Lab’s gentle disposition and sometimes
overwhelming friendliness have made him the most popular dog breed for quite some time
now. He’s friendly with everyone, including strangers. He’s large and bouncy with a positive outlook
on life. And he’s not afraid to show it with plenty
of cheerful tail wagging. One of the best dogs for children of all ages,
Labrador Retrievers are kindly, good-natured, and take most things in stride. Why isn’t the Lab number one on this list? Well, you had your say in the comments of
previous videos and we listened. Before we get to number one, have you seen
our Animal Facts Merch? If not, check out the link in the description
after the video. 1. Newfoundland You would have never let me get away with
making this list without the Newfoundland. As a matter of fact, the AKC Standard says,
“Sweetness of temperament is the hallmark of the Newfoundland.” Calm, dignified, and generally quiet, this
big breed does best in a spacious home in the suburbs or country, preferably in a non-humid
climate, ideally with access to a lake or pond. Newfoundlands love love love the water! And he loves loves loves his people. This kindly dog is good-natured with everyone,
especially children. He is very sociable and needs more companionship
than many other breeds. Newfoundlands don’t do well when left alone
for long periods. He is after all a people dog. If you like this video, check out some of
