The List

Medium dog breeds make the perfect pets for many types of people. They are small enough to be carried, but they are still big enough to make good hunting dogs, jogging companions, or guard dogs. Here is a list of most of the medium dog breeds. All of these breeds average between 15 and 20 inches at the shoulder. I have also included ratings of each breed's aggression, playfulness, watch dog ability, grooming, shedding, energy, and intelligence. Remember, though, that each individual dog can be different in certain categories from the breed average. So it is okay if you have a dog that doesn't match up with the ratings on this site.
