Science proves it again--these dogs are the cutest. Of course you might disagree, but I do not mind if you are wrong. Here is a great list of cuteness.

Pugs--A face that only a mother could love

This Chinese dog is in one of those “he is so ugly he is cute” situations.

Definitely a dog breed I would not own, but I don’t think the Pugs out there mind too much. They are incredibly popular, and there are legions of Pug owners out there to tell you that this is the cutest dog of all time!

Pah-leez! Why would anyone think that those big bulging eyes are cute?

English Bulldog--So ugly he is cute

Maybe this dog should be in the “ugly dog breed” category. His little smushed in face is a real terror.

I guess it is the stumpy legs that drive him into the cute category; they certainly do not hurt. Chunky faces, big eyes, and stumpy legs seem to be a common theme among the cutest dogs.

“Hold the English Bulldog, ma’am, I´m looking for a real dog.” Real dogs have noses.

Does the UK really want a dog like this to be their national image?

Westie--Cute even without a flat face

Small, white, and almost too cute. They were able to make this list even without bulging eyes and a “Mack truck” face. Stumpy legs help though.

Every day a big strong Westie wakes up and thanks his creator that he was not born a wimpy Maltese. He swaggers like a Scotchman…small and white should only go so far.

These dogs have been known to take out a can of whupass and tear into other small animals. Sounds to me like a form of compensation. Does this dog have the Napoleon complex?

Can we all say “aw, poor baby” together?

The Frenchie--a perfect dog for ladies of the night

Continental cuteness! Short legs, big eyes, and “batwing” ears.

This little dog is so cute that even the prostitutes in Paris found a dog they could care about. He is related to one of the other dogs on this list, but at this point deserves a spot of his own.

The girls in France fell in love with this little dog, treated them like babies, and what is the outcome?

Spoiled Frenchmen.

The Corgi--Cutest of them all?

Although the careful and accurate polling performed at YouTube has shown that the Pug is the cutest dog breed, I disagree! This is the number one cutest dog breed, an animal too cute for his own good.

All over the internet hackers and bored housewives are posting memes of the Corgi lawyer. Bored surfers everywhere are downloading lame videos of Corgis playing with babies or chasing a ball.

Their noses may not be smushed in but their legs are kind of stumpy. How can something like that not be cute?

These dogs look really good in a suit and tie, too. Of course, you might not agree that these little Welshmen are the cutest dogs.

Yeah, right! Who am I kidding? Everybody agrees.

Am I right here, or what?

Which dog breed is the cutest?

See results

Are they cute? You might want to rush out and bring home one of these dogs, but don’t go to a pet shop or order from an internet puppy wholesaler. You will be buying from a puppy mill and will end up a dog that is cute and not housebroken. I bet you won´t think it is cute if you wake up each morning and step into a warm pile of puppy compost.

If you don’t agree with this stupid list, and have your own ridiculous suggestions, leave a comment! Who knows, you might even change someone´s mind.

Your suggestions probably won´t be much worse than mine.

You can comment, but my opinion will not change:

      Haha great article! I have to say though, Shih-Tzus are the best. Hey, check out this video of a dog getting pranked by his owner: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tk1UQJAa77A :)

      Sorry Victoria we are going to have to give Gizmo a consolation prize. I recently rescued a Havanese, and she is definitely the cutest. Maybe so ugly she is cute? I took her to the river yesterday so she could go swimming with my Pitbull, and she just wanted to play in the mud. Too cute.

      I read an article recently about dogs and mirrors. Primates recognize self, but dogs think they are seeing another dog. I wonder. It sounds like a fun research project. (My dog has no interest in a mirror. Does that mean she is too smart or too dumb?)

      Well, Dr. Mark, I don't know why there isn't a picture of my Gizmo in this mix. LOL. But I do see him in the Highland Terrier. He is part terrier (and shih tzu and pekingnese), so maybe he is part Highland. I love this hub. They are all adorable. The pugs are hilarious. Gizmo tilts his head when I talk to him but not quite that dramatic.

      The video of the Corgi seeing himself in the mirror is priceless. Do all dogs notice mirrors? I've never noticed that mine does. So cool. Excellent hub. Thoroughly enjoyable.

      I think you and I are both going against the Pug tide. Being right is so hard some of the time!!!!

      I voted for the Corgi -- it's definitely the cutest of the five you have here (IMHO). I just love dogs and could gush over any and all of them. I don't think I could ever choose one as the cutest! I think it is impossible, but you've made a great go at it!

      All five of them are really cute. My daughter has always wanted a pug. I personally would like a dog that's not on your list -- a Llahsa apso. I think it's because in one of your previous lists you said the Llahsa is very affectionate:)

      Awww, their all cute Dr.Mark. I had so much fun looking at the videos. It's hard to resist a dog video and then you sprinkle it with a baby. I'm at my cute limit for the day. LOL

      Hi Patti thanks for looking at this weird hub! The Head Tilt Pugs were perfect, just like I was feeling last night.

      Your corgi pictures all depict babies, cheating. But that's gotta be the best thing on this list because I can't stand shoved in faces and I'm all too familiar with westies, yeesh.

      The cute pugs in the video are going to twist their heads off! They would make me laugh all day. We should all have one.
