Neither quality, nor intelligence, nor attractiveness of a dog is determined by the degree of its fluffiness. However, if you like to pet your pet, the dog’s long soft coat will be very helpful. Introducing the TOP 5 most furry breeds.
Fifth Place - Bearded Collie
It is difficult to say why the name of the breed, bred in Scotland as a shepherd, contains a beard, because the strange-long hair covers the entire body of the animal, and not just the chin. The bearded collie is assigned the fifth place of our TOP. This dog has something to “offer” in addition to lush hair - they are very active and love to be in the fresh air, so you will not get bored with them. Especially after a walk, when it takes a long time to remove all plant debris tangled in wool.
Fourth place - Samoyed Laika
The homeland of Samoyed huskies or Samoyeds, as they are often called, is Siberia. This breed was used to move (they were harnessed to the sled) and to protect the herds of deer. Snow-white long hair is ideal for Siberian winter landscapes, “masking” the dog among the snowdrifts.

Now Samoyeds are valued not for their ability to pull a sleigh and guard deer, but for their fine coat, cute appearance, good mind and friendly disposition. The dog becomes a good companion, finds a common language with family members, including children. Do not forget that a good coat requires careful grooming and regular combing, otherwise even the most beautiful dog will turn into an incomprehensible ball of messy dirty hair.
Interesting: the unusual name of the Samoyeds comes from the name of the people who used these dogs. The name of the people, in turn, comes from the dialect self-designation of samodin (in the singular) and samodi (in the plural). For some time the tribes called it Samoyeds, then Samoyeds. Despite the fact that back in the Soviet Union, the name “Samoyeds” was rejected as false-transparent in meaning, and therefore offensive, in the West Samoyeds are still called Samoyeds.
Third place - Pomeranian
Most likely, you have often seen these dogs in your city. Despite the high cost, these dogs are very popular due to their spherical shape and thick beautiful fur, which hides the body of the animal. As a rule, Pomeranian spitz-dogs are considered as an exclusively decorative dog, however, at the beginning of the twentieth century they were used as watchdogs, because oranges are characterized by a high reaction speed and very sonorous voice, due to which they could quickly wake up the owner in case someone tries to get into the house.
Second place - Maltese lapdog
If you have never seen Maltese lapdogs live, you probably know how they look thanks to cartoons and postcards. As a rule, this dog is portrayed as an indispensable attribute of a noble lady lying on her lap or next to her ottoman. Lapdogs have unusually long hair, which is usually fastened with a bow on the forehead (otherwise it will somewhat interfere with the dog's ability to see). The strange appearance of the dog impresses her as a decoration, a useless toy, but the lapdogs have quite good intellectual abilities.
First Place - Chow Chow
The birthplace of these dogs is Ancient China, in which there is even a legend that once the Chow Chow licked the sky, because of which its tongue turned blue. Due to the volume of fluffy hair, dogs of this breed seem like cubs, heavy and clumsy. In a sense, this is true - the activity is not to the liking of the Chow Chow, but they will be happy to fall at the feet of their beloved host. Unfortunately, dogs of this breed do not differ in high intelligence, so when choosing a pet, think about what you need - an ironing toy, or an animal that is somewhat aware that it is and that you are.

However, if there is no time for a pet - do you need a pet at all?
