1. Golden Retriever
This might be a little biased because I have a golden myself, but I just want everyone to feel how awesome it is to have a big furry golden thing running around your home. Golden’s have a special place in my heart because they are never not smiling, their coat of hair is always so soft, and they are never not lovable. I love coming back from school with a warm and toothy smile from my dog Stella. Nothing beats the look in her eyes after not seeing me for a long time. The feeling of being missed and adored by something is always one of the best feelings, and my golden always gives me the sense of being loved. Golden retrievers are also known for their beautiful coat. I love how each golden is different from the other with their hair either being more of a light gold or almost as dark as a red. My golden is very golden compared to others. Her coat is more red and dark, while others can be almost white as snow.

2. Labrador Retriever
Another “go-to” dog breed is the Labrador Retriever. This would include a black lab, chocolate lab, and yellow labs too! All three labs are always so adorable and a family favorite. I used to have a black lab named Moxie. She was my favorite dog in the entire world and was my absolute best friend. She listened even though she couldn’t respond. Always had enough energy to get you moving, but also always down to take a nap. I remember I taught her how to run up the slide on my swingset in the backyard, how to sit before we cross the street on our walks, and even how to play dead even though she could never stop wagging her tail. Moxie was the sweetest, prettiest, and lovable dog I’ve ever had and I will never forget her. Therefore, I would definitely recommend anyone who is looking to adopt a dog to get a lab!
3. Cocker Spaniel
If you’re someone who is interested in a smaller dog, then the Cocker Spaniel might be for you. Even though I’ve never owned one of these dogs before, I do know that they are such loving dogs and always have the biggest smile on their face. My aunt and uncle have two cocker spaniels and I absolutely adore them. They are so good on walks, easily trainable, and they get along well with other dogs! The size of cocker spaniels can vary, but they are usually under 20 pounds. Most of them are super cuddly and love to snuggle their noses into your body just so you notice them. There are plenty of spaniel rescues in the U.S., so it is easy to adopt these pups and not buy them!
