There’s no doubt that in America, dogs are man’s best friend. They’re found in
over 50 percent of all houses, making them, without a doubt, America’s favorite pet.

But not every type of dog is for every type of family.

Some people prefer large dogs, but the excessive amounts of shedding can become a hassle. Other people like small dogs, but small dogs are often angry and territorial. This makes medium-sized dog breeds perfect for many Americans.

This article will walk you through a few different types of medium sized dogs so you know which ones are best for you and your family.

1. Bulldog

The bulldog is the most popular medium-sized dog in America, grabbing a seat just behind the Labrador Retriever for America’s most popular dog.

You might be surprised that bulldogs are considered medium sized dogs due to their small frame. However, despite their compact nature, they average over 40 pounds.

Bulldogs are considered low maintenance, non-aggressive, and loyal. However, some people note that they’re stubborn and can sometimes develop weight issues.

2. Border Collie

Border collies are a great option for anyone looking for a medium sized fluffy friend. They’re friendly and good for families.

Border collies are by no means high-maintenance dogs. However, you have to be ready to meet their energy with a high amount of excitement.

3. Standard Poodle

While the diminutive counterparts to the standard poodle — the miniature poodle and the teacup poodle — have received more media attention in contemporary times, the standard poodle is a wonderful medium-sized pet.

If you’re looking for medium sized fluffy dogs, look no further. However, don’t let the slightly humorous appearance fool you. Poodles were bred for the hunt, and they’re considered one of the smartest breeds of dog around.

However, one should note that poodles do require a large amount of upkeep and trimming.

4. Basset Hound

A basset hound is yet another breed of medium sized dog that often fools people by its appearance. Though these dogs have a slightly goofy/cute appearance with their droopy faces and ears, they’re highly energetic.

Unlike the poodle, the basset hound requires minimal upkeep due to its short coat. Don’t expect their energetic nature for aggression though, they mostly just want to play.

Take note, however, that basset hounds are best for families with children since they need so much play.

5. Whippet

If you’re looking for one of the fastest dogs around, look no further than the whippet. These medium-sized dogs can reach speeds up to 35 miles an hour — that’s faster than most cyclists. They’re great for outdoor activities like fetch and catch.

If you’re looking for an active dog for an active lifestyle, look no further than the whippet. Whippets are often mistaken for greyhounds, so if you always liked that breed but want something smaller, you should highly consider these pets.
