Dogs are one of the most highly adopted pets in the world and breed plays a huge role in the adoption of dogs. People often make these decisions based on the dog’s breeding history, medical and genetic past, and general breed characteristics.

One of the most adopted breeds of dogs in the world is the Staffordshire Terrier (Pitbulls). This is simply because this is the breed that is surrendered most often and is found astray the most by Animal Control Officers. Contrary to popular belief, Pitbulls are not always ill-tempered and aggressive. They are loyal and obedient to their masters who they are also very protective of. 

Golden Retrievers are also another highly popular breed of dogs and thus, one of the most adopted breeds of dogs too. They are super social and tend to get along really well with just about anyone, including children and pets. If you have children at home, Golden Retrievers are the most highly recommended breed to adopt. They thrive both indoors and outdoors and are easily adaptable, which means that they can quickly adapt to any kind of lifestyle.

Beagles also are a breed of dogs that are adopted very often. Because of their sweet and human-friendly behavior, Beagles are very attractive potential pet-owners. Beagles make great hunting partners because of their exceptional sniffing skills. They are very gentle around children and other pets, including cats which is why they are a pleasure to have at home.

Pugs are also a very sought after breed when it comes to adoption. These adorable teddy-like dogs are lazy which means that they don’t need a lot of outdoor time. However, they are quite intelligent and playful. They are a very social breed of dogs and thus make wonderful adoption candidates for families with children
