The cutest dog in the world is a rather subjective thing to consider. Since there’s no official competition to vote on it, there’s no official title (yet). And with no definitive answer, we’ve taken it upon ourselves and rounded up the cutest dogs in the world according to three categories.
It must be said that the beauty of a dog is in the eye of the beholder – we prefer to choose our purrfect pup based on their nature and personality. With that said, let’s dive into the first category.
The cutest dog in the world according to science
Many animal enthusiasts have gone into deep thought on how to rate the cutest dogs. To answer this question, one group decided to use the golden ratio as the framework to score different breeds of dogs. The golden ratio measures symmetry and proportion – the closer a dog’s face adheres, the cuter they are considered to be.
By this measure, Dalmatians are the cutest dog in the world with an adherence to the golden ratio of 67.03%.
Second, the affectionate Irish Water Spaniel with 66.26%.
Third place goes to the feisty Wire Fox Terrier with 65.53%.
In fourth place we have the ever-loving Labrador, with 64.67%.
Fifth is our big eared friend the Basset Hound with 64.43%
And rounding off our list, in sixth place we have the fluffy Samoyed with 64.33%.
Cutest dog in the world according to social media
Moving over to the popularity contest for cutest dog in the world, it seems pretty clear cut that Pomeranians have dominated the field thus far.
Jiff Pom has almost 10 million followers on Instagram. A brief look through the feed will tell you why very quickly. This furtabulous little four legged model is going to steal your heart.
It’s hard to compete with that adorable face, always accompanied with a little cheeky tongue out pose. Another very popular and famous dog on the internet is Boo, also a Pomeranian. The internet sure seems to love the pawsome furballs.
We just can’t argue with the fame of these furbabies.
Cutest dog in the world according to us
We’ve been around dogs a long time and we’ve learned a lot about all different types – from the best dog breeds to the relatively unknown. Choosing one dog for the title of cutest dog in the world is no small task.
But when pushed to make a decision, for us it’s the Cavoodle that comes out ahead in the cute department. Their adorable and oh-so-friendly faces, endearing eyes and built-for-loving, hypoallergenic coat make them our choice for cutest dog in the world.
Our cute furballs deserve the best protection
No matter how well you look out for your furry friends, accidents happen. Not only that, illnesses, allergies and other health issues can come out of the blue. You don’t want to get caught off guard.
Dog insurance will keep you afloat in times where you need anything from emergency surgery and overnight stays through to tests, medication treatment and other non-routine vet bills.
