Pug- Mexico, Cambodia, Ireland, New Zealand, Laos

The pug is one of the oldest breeds out there, with their popularity being retained for hundreds of years. Originating all the way back to the Song Dynasty in China from 960 AD the pug was highly valued by Chinese royalty and lived the life of luxury with the extent of having their own soldiers for guarding.

Their popularity spread across Asia through the centuries and are still very popular to this date. This is due to their extremely cute size and deminer offering great companionship between them and their owner.

Rottweiler- Algeria, Denmark, France, Fiji, Ghana, India, South Africa

Rottweiler’s have a historic reputation as being strong, loyal guard and working dogs. Mainly due to their strong history in those roles as far back as Roman Times.

Although seen as this strong hard-working breed the Rottweiler is an affectionate and loving breed to their family and owners. Once you get past the tough exterior the Rottweiler is very soft making them popular with working people and families.

Akita- Japan

The pride of Japan has never left, the Akita comes from the snowy mountains of Japan and their popularity in their home country has never dwindled. Although their popularity has been persistent the breed itself hasn’t been as such.

Their history is colourful with highs and lows due to our own involvement in the Second World War where many Akita’s were bred with German Shepards in order to be saved from culling.

The Akita is a powerful, independent and dominant breed, commonly aloof with strangers but affectionate with family members.

French Bulldog- UK Thailand Australia

The French Bulldog has been a household favourite for the past couple of years in Britain and it seems we’re aren’t the only ones to have fallen in love with the breed.  The French Bulldog gets its name from how their breed began, the original French bulldog was a mix from the late toy bulldog and French ratter dogs hence the name FRENCH BULLDOG. Despite their small size, they are in fact descendants from the same breed as the English bullmastiff and although they do not correlate in size they do in personality. With a high amount of loyalty coming from these dogs along with their cute size and playfulness, they have become a great dog to befriend.
