While we are passionate about all dogs and cats, every team member has a personal favorite. If you’re considering getting a short hair breed like a Labrador or a Greyhound, read on to discover the favorite shorthair dog breeds according to our very own Trupanion team members.
Shorthair dog breeds to consider according to Trupanion team members
The reasons Trupanion team members love shorthair dog breeds and their beloved pets are many; silly personalities, big hearts, and behavior quirks make them so special.
1. French Bulldog
“French bulldogs are the sweetest, most loving dogs ever! Also, a benefit is that as a short hair dog breed, they don’t shed as much as other breeds. Domino has a very pleasant natural smell to her. I only bathe her as needed. Also, I love how her black brindle coat has gotten progressively lighter, more bridle, and softer as she has gotten older. She just turned eight, and people always comment on how soft she is,” says Trupanion team member Sam S.
2. Italian Greyhound
“My Apollo, the Italian Greyhound! Like many other Italian Greyhounds, Iggy likes to cuddle and burrow under blankets. They also make some of the best cuddlers because they are down to nap whenever you want,” states Trupanion team member Linzie A.
3. Great Dane
“Great Danes are big, loyal, lazy, sweet, and gentle goofballs,” says Trupanion team member Jasmine S.
“Pitbulls! They are the most loyal, snuggliest, silly, sweet snack connoisseurs, and just the absolute best dogs around,” says Trupanion team member Jamie P.
“My Martha, the Chihuahua. A loyal lap dog that never leaves my side,” says Trupanion team member Stephanie S.
“They’re sweet, funny, and smart! They’re down to go out and have adventures or snuggle on the couch and watch TV. But most of all, they just love to be with their human,” says Trupanion team member Nicolette T.
“Greyhound. They hike, run, snuggle, and comfort you. Also, they are 60 miles per hour couch potatoes that encourage you to get out but are okay staying in. They are love,” says Trupanion team member Crissy B.
8. Labrador Retriever
“I’m a sucker for Labs right now,” says Trupanion team member Jessica G.
9. Pitbull and Lab mix duo
If you can’t have just
one, consider two shorthair dog breeds!
“They love to snuggle, and they look so cute in their
hoodies,” says Trupanion team member Diana C.
