10 Dumbest Dog Breeds

dumbest dog breeds in the world

For many people, the term dog intelligence is an oxymoron. Some dogs are known for being dumb, and this because of some dumb pictures of them in popular social media. Here is a list of 10 dumbest dog breeds around the world.

#1. Bulldog. Looks can be deceiving, but in this case they’re pretty much spot-on. These (literally) thick-headed dogs really are as dumb as they look. That doesn’t stop people from loving the breed though – in fact, it’s part of the charm.

#2. Basset Hound. Bassets are so sweet and goofy looking, I almost feel guilty putting them on this list. But I gotta, because they really are some of the most dimwitted pups you’ll ever meet.

#3. Chow Chow. A lot of the dumbest dogs are fun-loving and happy-go-lucky, but not the Chow Chow. These deeply suspicious guard dogs are downright intimidating – mostly because you have no idea what’s going on in their heads.

#4. Afghan Hound. These dogs are the fashion models of the canine world – thin, stylish, and all too often, airheaded.

#5. Bloodhound. Clearly, a lot of the brainpower of these scent hounds is reserved for processing the enormous amount of information they take in through their noses. When it comes to non-smelling-related tasks, they’re pretty much lost. Unfortunately, putting a doggy detective’s hat on them doesn’t seem to help much.

#6. Pekingese. Unlike many breeds that started as working dogs and became companions later on, the Pekingese was bred from the start to be the ultimate lap dog. Intelligence has always taken a backseat to poofiness.

#7. Mastiff. I wouldn’t call one of these dogs dumb to their face, but let’s just say that intelligence isn’t the standout trait for this breed. Mastiffs have brawn to spare, but somebody else will definitely have to supply the brains.

#8. Lhasa Apso. These adorable furry guys are the closest things you can get to a real life Ewok. Unfortunately, their intelligence level is more along the lines of a Tauntaun. Translation for non-Star Wars fans: They’re cute, but dumb.

#9. Beagle. Most of these dogs have trouble living up to Snoopy’s example (or Snoop Dogg’s example, for that matter). They might make a fun and devoted family pet, but beagles are consistently ranked among the least trainable dog breeds.

#10. Chihuahua. Does brain size matter? Based on the intelligence (or lack thereof) of the tiny Chihuahua, you’d have to say yes. ( Via Terribly Terrier )dumbest dog breeds top 100
