The Best Dog Breeds for Families Looking for a New Pal

Everyone loves dogs, including cat people. The key is to understand the behavior of your furry friend, and that will depend on their breed. Adopting a pup from the shelter is always a great idea as there are so many waiting to be taken to a good home, like yours. You can usually tell what their personalities are when you bring them home, but even still, there can be a lot of ambiguity.

For that reason, it's helpful to have a little background knowledge on which breeds are better for your living situation, especially with kids at home. So we did some of the homework for you and compiled a list of the best breeds for family homes, as defined by the American Kennel Club. You will be sure to find the right pooch for you, or at least an idea of what to look for at the adoption center.

No matter what, you are sure to have many kisses in your near future.
