Most intimidating looking dog breeds
The Yorkipoo is very small at just 8 to 15 pounds and therefore is best suited for a home with adults or older children who understand how to gently handle him.
Crossed between a Shih Tzu and a Miniature or Toy Poodle, the Shihpoo can have either a curly Poodle coat or a straight, long coat like a Shih Tzu.
He’s a lover, not a fighter, but he will step in to protect his family if needed.
Tied with American Bulldog, the Bulldog is a family favorite who makes friends with everyone he meets.
Between that and his small size, he’s a popular pick for city folk.
That’s because these dogs have been specifically bred for nearly two centuries to ensure one thing: whatever they watch over remains undisturbed.
To determine which breeds and hybrids are truly the hottest ones, we searched Vetstreet's data and looked at how many places each breed climbed between 20.
