I have a basset hound, it's not they're stupid, it's that they just don't care.

/ or he could just be stupid.
 
2014-02-02 08:18:49 AM
The basset hound also got laziest, so my dog is stupid and lazy. I bet if he could buy his own beer he would fit in here.

Number 1 does not surprise me. At all.  If my cat can beat it up, it's not a dog, it's an overgrown goddamn rat.

I'm amazed that Greyhound isn't on that list.

We had a Lhasa Apso.  Easily the stupidest dog I've ever seen.  Had to be careful not throw a ball too close to solid objects, he'd run face first into a wall to get that ball.  I suppose he kind of learned to play fetch, that was something I guess.

Dumb article. It made no arguments for the breeds' actual intelligence but rather went into why they are frequently badly behaved.

Last time I remember this sorta "smart / dumb dog" list being presented....

....afterwards I saw a few TV interviews with EXTREMELY BUTT HURT Afgahn Hound breeders, trying to justifying their v.gey hobby of breeding tard-dogs Hahahaha!! Dumbest. Dog. Eva. No excuses.

If stubborn equals lack of intelligence, which is what TFA implies, then one of my Boxers has to be one of the dumbest dogs in the country.

I have owned Beagles most of my life, and come from a family that breeds them.

I'm convinced Beagles are loveable, evil geniuses:  They are pleasantly entitled, and manage to get away with doing whatever the hell they want - your commands be damned.

/Beagles are awesome
//totally agree about the Chihuahuas, though - can't stand those rats!

This article sucks. If you want dumb, I have 2 words for you: Italian Mastiff. Dumbest fark I ever met was an IM named Aniello.

Actually made me say the words "oh crap, I made eye contact."
 
2014-02-02 08:55:23 AM
I disagree with the Basset Hound being on that list.

My Basset is quick to learn but his stubbornness means he picks and chooses which commands to listen to.
 
2014-02-02 08:56:21 AM
We often dog-sit our neighbor's pug. He is super friendly and awesome, but you definitely get the feeling that the lights are on but nobody's home.

His prime directive seems to be "put my butt on it". No matter what it is, he will sit on it.
 
2014-02-02 08:57:03 AM
Pug owner. Little guy is singing at 830AM and the GF is NOT happy about it. He usually sleeps all morning with her but this morning he is being a little handful

We do think he isn't the brightest. We inherited him and we are pretty sure he doesn't know his name. Either that or he just doesn't give a shiat when you are calling his name. I know he isn't deaf because If I open the fridge door no matter where he is in the house he will come running

EvilEgg: The basset hound also got laziest, so my dog is stupid and lazy. I bet if he could buy his own beer he would fit in here.


I have a good friend who had a pair of bassets that were possibly the laziest dogs I've ever known. Except...he lived next to a cow pasture and as soon as he let them outside the male would sprint to the closest pile of Coe shiat he could find. Once arriving at his destination he would, not quite roll do much as dive, back first, into the often still warm shiat.
But other than that he was the type of dog that would howl because he was laying on his nuts, but wouldn't move because it took too much effort.
 
2014-02-02 09:02:47 AM
EvilEgg... I challenge that my Greyhound is both Stupider and Lazier than your basset.

But similar to what you said.. its not that he stupid, he just doesnt care. All he wants is a softplace to sleep and to be fed at 5am and 5pm sharp. Nothing else registers in his world.
 
2014-02-02 09:05:56 AM
I've had many dogs over the years including a Rottweiler trained by a professional who handles police dogs. The Chihuahua I currently have is by far the most intelligent of them all. I'm sure you'd think well, he must of had some pretty stupid dogs but it's not the case. This little dog is simply amazing. She's not a yippy yappy annoying rat like most Chihuahuas.

She currently has an autoimmune disorder which is slowly trying to kill her. I think once she's gone...I'll never be the same.

Ugh...dust in my eyes again....

My malamutes don't seem to grasp the concept of "fetch".

2014-02-02 09:12:03 AM
I hope if dogs ever take over the world, and they chose a king, they don't just go by size, because I bet there are some Chihuahuas with some good ideas.

I have two pugs from the wife and I'll say they aren't as dumb as the others have said. They are like girls that know if they act cute they can get a guy to do what they want. The worst part is the owner looks like her pets.
 
2014-02-02 09:18:57 AM
I had a Shiba Inu whom I couldnt tell if he was dumb or a genius. He was very person-like.  Also kind of a jack ass.

He got loose from the backyard one day when I was 14 or so, and I spent nearly an hour chasing him with a big grin on his face. When he finally got tired, he stopped about 20 feet in front of me and just stared me down...

and then jumped in a puddle and waited for me to go get him.
 
2014-02-02 09:20:34 AM
The most stupid dog i've ever met was a boxer. His specific "superpowers" included running through narrow doors with a way too large branch (or a similar object), drinking every drop of beer he was able to find and fall asleep, belching and farting, in the oddest places (including a freshly excavated grave) and puke on his owners lap.
 
2014-02-02 09:21:14 AM
Addendum; After my Shiba passed me and the gf got a 1/2 king shephard, 1/4 husky, 1/4 blue heeler.

She is the smartest dog I've ever met.

Also unfortunately inherited the shepard fear-aggression so she's not super good with people or esp. other dogs.
 
2014-02-02 09:22:33 AM

abhorrent1: Sounds to me what they're saying is these dogs are very intelligent and therefore hard to train because they think your an idiot and don't want to listen to you.
Anyone who's ever had a jack-russel would understand this.
This kind of sums up super intelligent dogs.
[weknowmemes.com image 226x282]


I have a Yorkie mix and I can tell he's super intelligent but sometimes doesn't give a shiat.  He's hard to play with because he gets bored of every game in about 5-10 minutes.  My parents' yard requires a perimeter check before he can be left out there for more than 10 minutes alone.  I even eventually caught on to him misbehaving in agility and obedience class in order to get me to give him commands for more treats (THAT's been a hard one to break).  A smart dog that doesn't care is easy to tell from a dumb one.  I often wish I had a dumb one.

I'd agree with most of the list except Basset Hounds.  Most of the ones I know are not especially stupid, just lazy.  I'd replace them on the list with shelties.  Most of the ones I know are fluffy and adorable but dumb as a box of rocks.

I clicked on the "5 smartest dog breeds" link, and saw German Shepherd and Golden Retriever both listed. My Shepherd/Goldy mix is as thick as a brick. Maybe they somehow canceled each other out?

Krymson Tyde:

No coffee on the keyboard, but my kids are giving me weird looks.

Also, intelligence among members of a breed varies widely. We have a Corgi, and they're meant to be pretty smart. I don't see it.

For example, this morning, and every other morning in recent memory, I pointed at the bedroom door and said "walk." She knows she's meant to do something when this happens, and she confidently trots into the bathroom.

OTOH, as part of her morning routine she gets a two rawhide treats. We give her one, which she inhales. She then beelines for the cupboard and whines until she gets her second rawhide. Once she gets it, she's good; no begging for number three. So, she may be dumb, but at least she can count to "two."

I had a malamute years ago and he was the same way. Those dogs have to believe beyond a shadow of a doubt that your the boss or they will just do what they want to. Unless you're a 4y/o who wants to play in the yard.

This could actually be a good thing.  My current dog would play fetch all day when I lived in an apartment.  I moved to a house in the woods, she has zero interest in playing fetch now, because she's happily amused all day sniffing at things and getting a lot more outdoor time.
 
2014-02-02 09:32:49 AM
My Weimaraner once jumped off our deck, hitting the brick 10 ft below because I was outside mowing the yard and she wanted me to throw sticks. She didn't even blink when she hit the ground running.

My original takeaway was she's just highly devoted, but now I'm not so sure.

Every time they have a stupidest dog list, they always have different dogs. The smartest dog lists seem to agree on a few though.

I have a basset mix, and yes, he is lazy, but he does love the kids.  About the only time he will run around is when they are outside with him.

However, he is not the dumbest dog I have ever know, that distinction would have to go to my brothers cocker spaniel.  That dog was dumb like a rock.
 
2014-02-02 09:46:04 AM
The thing about chihuahuas being single minded is absolutely correct!

we have a Jack Russell/chihuahua mix and this dog will chase tennis balls for HOURS on end.

She's pretty fierce, too ...

When Mrs. 7YH and I went to pick her up from the shelter, the staff person told us it took THREE people to change her collar.

I thought: "WTF, it's just a freaking chihuahua?!"

Then, when they opened her crate, she proceeded to take a chunk out of both our hands!
 
2014-02-02 09:49:57 AM
We have YodaEarsBoy the Chihuahua. He's not the sharpest tool in the shed, but he's not all that stupid. He's just very headstrong, and very protective of his small circle of friends. I wouldn't call the breed the least intelligent. I reserve that for Irish setters, which in my experience have shown to be the airhead champions.

This. My sister had a male cocker spaniel and that was one of the dumbest animals I've ever met.

My ex and I had adopted a Terrier/Collie mix from a local rescue and he's a fantastic dog. He changed the mind of a lifelong cat person.

I miss the little bugger, but he's still in good hands.

I have the same mix, though mine has the dark shepherd coloring. She's quite bright, and really attuned to our emotional states. But top 5? Doubtful.
 
2014-02-02 09:58:34 AM
I've always heard the chihuahua is an intelligent breed. They are evil, little sycophants who depend upon their chosen family member to support and defend them no matter what. I'm reminded of Kim Jung-un, small and constantly demanding attention. Or other third world dictators.

/hope I didn't make a Best Korea hit list (not for a previously recorded, unreleased song I made in 8th grade that I thought I'd destroyed.)

Well... I have a foodle(poodle/fox terrier) and he is REALLY REALLY damn smart. Not very obedient, but very smart. And devoted. And feisty, and FAST.

His personality is very much like a JRT. He is scarily similar to the frasier dog in attitude and behavior.

Dunno, but I'm sure it was hilarious. We got her from a shelter. Chihuahua face with a heavier body and very obvious labrador coat. She's a cuddler, and she loves everyone she meets.
