Top 10 Most Muscular Small Dogs – Little Breeds That Can


Just because you’re small doesn’t mean you
have to be frail. Which small dog breeds pack on the muscle? Let’s take a look. You’re Watching Animal Facts. 10. Miniature Pinscher Often confused for a Chihuahua, the Miniature
Pinscher is probably not the first dog that came to mind when you started this video. At just 8-10 pounds, the Min Pin is far from
the largest breed on this list, but this little dog pound for pound has the muscle to back
up its big dog personality. This proud, fun-loving toy breed is as fearless
as it is compact. And although tiny, the Min Pin makes an excellent
watchdog. 9. French Bulldog French Bulldogs may be lovable and cuddly,
but this small breed does pack on some muscle. This comical and entertaining dog has a solid
build and sturdy muscle structure to carry all that muscle. At under 29 pounds and 11-13 inches tall on
average, the French Dog is a strong contender for most muscular small dogs breeds. 8. Boston Terrier
Wherever the Frenchie goes, the Boston Terrier is not far behind. At 10-25 pounds, the Boston is certainly smaller
than its French Cousin, but the Tuxedoed American Gentleman is a compact, well-balanced muscular
little dog. Among the traits that they share with the
French Bulldog are a broad, muscular chest and short, strong limbs. But don’t let the muscle fool you though. This is a gentle, well-mannered and playful
little beast who loves nothing more than a cuddle. 7. Miniature Schnauzer The smallest of the three Schnauzer breeds,
the wiry-haired Miniature Schnauzer is a strong-boned compact dog. At only 11-20 pounds the Miniature Schnauzer
boasts an outgoing personality and sporty good looks along with its muscular, sturdy
build. Built for ratting and guard dog work on the
farms of 19th-century Germany, the Mini is tough and fearless making it a wonderful watchdog,
but it’s also a friendly, highly trainable companion. 6. Pembroke Welsh Corgi When you’re bred to be a cattle herding
dog, you’ve got to be tough, especially when you’re only 10-12 inches tall. The intelligent and highly trainable Pembroke
Welsh Corgi is one of the world’s most popular herding dog breeds, yet only weighs up to
30 pounds. Rather than a small dog, the Corgi is more
of a big dog in a small package. Built long and low to be quick and agile,
the Corgi has a strong, muscular build comparable to dogs many times its size. Short but powerful legs, muscular thighs,
and a deep chest equip the Corgi for a hard day’s work, but it loves its play with family. 5. Dachshund The name Dachshund literally means “badger
dog” in German, though Dachshunds were also used to hunt rabbits and foxes, to locate
wounded deer, and hunt in packs for wild boar and wolverines. Needless to say, the breed is well-known for
being fearless and standing its ground! A well-exercised Dachshund has a lean, muscular
dog with little body fat. Dachshunds can weight between 8-25 pounds
in three standard sizes; standard, miniature, and kaninchen which means “rabbit” in
German. No matter the size, the Dachshund is a strong,
fearless animal with the skill and instinct to hunt, even if the only thing it is allowed
to hunt is a squeak toy. 4. JagdTerrier In its native Germany, JagdTerrier literally
means “hunt terrier.” This 20-22 pound Terrier is particularly suited
to hunting under the ground and as a flushing dog and is relatively small, compact, and
well-proportioned. Like many Terriers, the JagdTerrier was bred
to be strong, sturdy and a bit feisty. The Jagdterrier is courageous, enduring, vital,
full of spunk, reliable, sociable and trainable and always takes pleasure in its work. Being a fearless and tenacious hunting partner
and an affectionate companion, the Jagdterrier is a perfect choice not only for hunters but
active dog parents who are looking for a devoted family friend. On the field, the Jagdterrier is a dedicated
and highly-esteemed hunter. Off the field, it’s an excellent pet. 3. Rat Terrier Moving from the hunting fields of Germany
to the farmlands of the US, we have the Rat Terrier. At 10-25 pounds, the absolutely fearless American
Original is a compact, tough exterminator dog. This happy-go-lucky, portable companion is
certainly tough. These smoothly muscled exterminators are constructed
for the efficient movement required for a long day’s work and have the temperament
and tenacity to match. US President Theodore Roosevelt is said to
have given the breed its name after his own terrier eradicated the rat infestation at
the White House. 2. Jack Russell Terrier About as long as it is tall, a typical Jack
Russell is small, sturdy and strong. They have muscular necks that slope down to
a fairly shallow chest, strong front legs and muscular hindquarters. At 14-18 pounds, the small and quick and highly
intelligent Jack Russell was born to hunt. It is bold and confrontational, athletic and
agile. It’s quick enough to run with horses and
tough enough to dig in and flush foxes from their lairs. This is definitely a tough and strong little
dog, pound for pound one of the toughest on the planet. Hey, what kind of puppy is this? Before we get to number one, let’s see how
