Puppies, puppies, PUPPIES, puppies! They’re so stinkin ‘cute and they make us happy. Everyone has a personal favourite of their own, so what are the top cutest breeds of puppies? For your viewing pleasure, we toiled at night hours, went through some intense arguments, and eventually narrowed down the top 10 list of adorable puppies.
“The “Gerber kid” of dogs, of course, made the list. Golden Retriever puppies, known for their innate intelligence, kind disposition, and coats made of pure sunshine, can turn any frown upside down any day. At around 3 to 5 years, a golden retriever puppy becomes fully grown, although it is not uncommon for Goldies to have an adorable Peter Pan syndrome during their lifetime.
With his tiny size and giant attitude, his spunky, adorable puppy steals your heart. Many would accept that owning a Jack Russell is just like having a puppy 24/7 for the next 15 years. Jack Russell, needless to say, is not for the faint of heart because of the existence of the breed. Although young, Jack Russell puppies need to be disciplined as they can become aggressive if not properly socialised. Reinforce desired behaviour early for a delicious reward with some jerky treats.
Shih Tzus, not much bigger than a dust bunny, are pretty puppies that remain small. For the breed that is often called “lion dog,” they are pretty ironic. They are clever little pooches, but they can also be stubborn. Having said that, as soon as you get them home, make it a priority to start socialising and educating your Shih Tzu puppy.
Rottweilers, also called Rotts or Rotties, are strong and muscular and optimistic, undeniably one of the most underrated dog breeds, but don’t let that fool you! Rotties can be very affectionate and when they decide to cuddle and enjoy you, there’s no stopping them. To hone their social and innate defensive instincts, train your Rottie puppies early. The training rewards of choice are durable chews such as bully sticks for big dog breeds such as Rotties!
We dare you to look at this puppy face and not say “aaahhhhhhh.” Big and in control of cuteness, the cutest puppy races. In terms of pound-for-pound mass, Mastiffs are considered the largest dogs on earth, but all that brawn comes with a gentle temperament that makes Mastiffs a favourite family pet overall. Mastiffs enjoy digging and chewing, so make sure to have plenty of long-lasting dog chews on hand to keep them busy and conditioned if you do plan to have one.
This is one of the cutest breeds of puppy ever! Pawfection, with that silky soft puppy fur and cute face, surrounded by those floppy ears, is the term that comes to mind. Beagles were initially trained to be hunting dogs, and once identified, they can be very persistent in detecting a scent. No wonder so many beagle owners want to call them four-legged noses.
We may have talked too early about the Beagle puppy being the prettiest puppies… You can’t forget about Labs carrying the torch of the pretty puppy breeds. Like golden retriever puppies, furballs of pure sunlight are labrador puppies! Plus, with children and other pets, they are fantastic, which, if you combine with their pawesome energy, provides the ideal service dog recipe.
German Shepherds grow up to be exceptionally smart working dogs, but they start out as the cutest puppies, “all paws,” adorably awkward. As you would expect from herding dogs, German shepherd puppies enjoy all types of sports, so a German shepherd is up to the vibe if you have an active lifestyle. The secret to a fruitful dog-owner relationship is teaching small German shepherd pups at a young age. Just make sure you provide him with a lot of well-deserved treats!

The goofy spirits and overall great personality can not even be dampened by short legs. Don’t skip this video of a corgi heading down stairs, if you love corgis.
