As all dog lovers know, having to say goodbye to your furry friend is heartbreaking. Since most dogs have a fairly short lifespan, these goodbyes come too often.
The good news is that the Pyrenean Shepherds have a long lifespan, stretching to 17 years! That means you’ll have far more time to bond with your pooch without worrying about the inevitable farewell for a while. Pyrenea Shepherds are also known for, you guessed it, their sheep-herding abilities.
Have an issue with feral pigs or raccoons? Then a Coonhound might just be the canine companion for you! Coonhounds are hunting dogs, even known to pursue bobcats and bears. Their superpower has to be their unparalleled perseverance and tracking skills.
No hunt is too daunting or too treacherous for these pups! Coonhounds are also adored for their harmonious howling.
Tibetan Mastiffs are hard to miss. Not only due to their large build, but also because of their double-thick coats. However, where this breed reigns supreme is in the strength category.

If you're looking for more than just a docile dog, look no further than the tiny but sassy Chihuahua breed. What these dogs lack in size they certainly make up for in personality.

Beaucerons are renowned for their protective instincts, especially when it comes to their human families. They have unwavering bravery and loyalty. It comes as no surprise that they were a common breed used during the World Wars.
