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.

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.

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.

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....

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.

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.

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.

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.

A million years ago, some guy kept an Irish Setter in his dorm and, sadistically, tossed it lit firecrackers. So, any breed that would chase a 2nd lit firecracker (much less more of them) is impossibly stupid.

/never saw it myself
//could be urban legend

My list would include Jack Russell's. If only for the one who bit my Border Collie. We were out in a little boulevard grass area waiting for Nature to call (my dog was leashed and I had a pooper scooper), when a car pulled up, a back door opened, and out came a Jack Russell all by its lonesome. The dog simply walked up to mine, without either provocation or agonistic behavior, and battened itself to her cheek like a ramora on a shark. My dog didn't respond in kind, but just looked at me like Patience on a Plinth, the other dog dangling from its face.

I knew what to do and lightly toed the little blister in the short-breads. That prompted an open window in the car and an apology(!) which was unique among aggressive dog owners in my experience. She called to her mutt to return, and they fled the scene.

Apparently Jack Russell's have some kind of extra-aggressive training they undergo for that chase-the-fox-tail race they run.
 
2014-02-02 10:41:32 AM
I adopted a small (adult wt. = 36 lbs) beagle/hound mix from a rescue service.  Incredible athlete who can easily run down a scampering squirrel, although he won't harm them.  I think he just laughs to himself after he scares the squirrel poop out of them as they escape.

I have plenty of experience with dogs, but while training this one as a pup, I couldn't shake the feeling that he was training me, as well.  It all resolved nicely, but I would not argue with anyone who might suggest that he is smarter than me.

/named him "Elvis"

In my neighborhood, when I was a kid, there was a family that was wealthier than everybody else.  They had a multiple lot property, with a large fenced in yard.  In the yard roamed, King the boxer.  As you walked down the sidewalk, King would hurl himself against the fence, in an awesome display of ferocity.  All the kids were afraid of King.  One night, the family was gone, leaving only the elderly grandfather and King at home.  2 or 3 guys did a targeted home invasion.  They tied the grandfather to a chair and were roughing him up,to get him to tell them where the valuables were.  While they were doing this, King was sitting nearby, being petted by one of the robbers.  The grandfather survived the ordeal and the next morning, King was king no more.

/CSB: When I was younger, this family's father owned a auto dealership, that the Outfit wanted to take over.  The father didn't want to sell, so the mob guys set off a "surprise package" in front of the house, one morning.  The father became one of the first strip mall developers in the area, soon after that.
 
2014-02-02 11:05:36 AM
Norma the basset hound is not dumb. She has an attitude and really doesn't give a damn about what you want her to do. It seems to me that if a dog can analyze a command and say "fark it", that requires intelligence.
 
2014-02-02 11:07:09 AM
In my limited experience, you can get a dud, even out of a breed that is not supposed to be stupid. Our papillon has to be the dumbest dog ever. She barely understands "sit". She has no reasoning skills whatsoever. Once she lost her ball under a blanket on the couch, and she just looked at us wondering where it had gone. Another time, I threw her ball in the back yard and it bounded through a small space between a rake and the fence. She couldn't get through that space, and never thought that she could just walk around the rake to get the ball.

On the plus side, she is a very happy, non-neurotic, friendly little dog. As far as she is concerned, life is excellent. People drop food from the counter, she gets scratches, she gets cookies and treats, everybody loves her, so don't worry, be happy!

Now, our Shepherd cross, on the other hand is far too smart and neurotic for his own (and our) good. He has a long memory, and is sneaky enough to go do something later when you are not watching, and smart enough to figure out new ways to get into things you wanted him out of.  He lets the Papillon think she is boss, but really, he is the boss, probably of all of us. A bit fear aggressive, unfortunately, but he loves his pack of people and dog, and nothing bad will ever happen to them.

I have a basset hound and last month I was sick with a nasty stomach virus. As I was laying on the floor of my bathroom because I couldn't get too far from the toilet to either throw up or have diarrhea, my little girl (60 pounds) laid there with me whining because she knew something was wrong. Or she just may have been hungry but I think bassets care.

But they are so stupid.

Bermuda59: I wouldn't call Irish Setters dumb. Crazy, yes, but not dumb.


I dunno. My cousins had several setters when I was growing up. The last two they had (before they moved on to labradors) managed to get a face full of porcupine quills on two separate occasions. Most other creatures learn to leave porkies alone pretty quickly, which makes me think these guys weren't the brightest of dogs.

I'm very surprised dalmations didn't make the list. I knew a guy who lost two of them because they jumped off his yacht. One drowned (it took the leap when he wasn't looking and he sailed off without it); to make sure that didn't happen again, he kept the second on a leash, and apparently it hanged itself by jumping over the edge anyhow. I don't know if you should blame the dogs or the owner in that case.

Our boxer, despite living in the house for years and having an established routine, ran right through a closed glass patio door one day.  He didn't even slow down, glass shards everywhere, how he didn't cut himself to ribbons I will never know.  It was like he didn't see it and worse didn't even realize he had done it.  He then turned around and sat down amidst the glass wreckage, panting and smiling, waiting for his usual treat for coming in the house.

My husky/border collie/chow mix is crazy smart, and a total conspiracy theorist. She connects the strangest events -- got freaked out by a motorboat's wake passing on a river once in Louisiana, and now absolutely refuses to get close to the ocean because of the waves. Is highly suspicious of guys in hats and sunglasses. Expects me to howl with her whenever she hears coyotes (not so much conspiracy theorist there, but it always cracks me up). Glares at me when I offer her water after short walks, because she connects it to me telling her to get back in the car in the middle of long road trips when she still wants to run around and sniff stuff. Being on a leash when meeting other dogs = other dog is evil and she has to turn into a raving Cujo-sounding maniac; being off leash when meeting other dogs = other dog is cool new buddy.

Love her to bits, but she's a nut. I'm pretty sure she believes in black helicopters and chem-trails.

We have a border collie mix and a GSD mix. I don't think the collie got the collie brains.

Our shepherd did get the smarts; he dug out of the backyard once and opened the gate latch to let himself back in.

I don't know if Chihuahuas deserve to be on the dumb list, but much like Pit Bulls they seem to attract people that really shouldn't be owning a dog. "He's so small, he doesn't need training!" They are far and away the least socialized breed I've ever encountered, as a whole.

Spaniels and Greyhounds are the dumbest, IMO.

I've got a Plott Hound that's just as stupid as a bag of hair.

But then my Aussie/Heeler mix is disturbingly intelligent (like pulling cabinet drawers out to different lengths and using them as a stepladder... and then pushing them back in after she's gotten treats out of an upper cabinet)

My daughter's Husky makes them both look stoopid. I think that dog is plotting some sort of takeover.

Porous Horace: I was a bit bummed when I discovered that greyhounds are dumb.
I still want one. Or more.


A friend of ours had a greyhound rescue dog.  We went to her farm once and met her greyhound and two other dogs. It was a hot day and the greyhound was taunting the other two -- a Belgian police dog and ???, The greyhound had a rope toy that it would place near the other two and when they would try to get it, the greyhound would effortlessly snatch it away. Then, a few second later would put it near them again. This went on for around 10 minutes. The greyhound may have been dumb but it had a great sense of humor.

Krymson Tyde: 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.

One of the big problems with pugs is stubborness. They're notorious among groomers for not putting up with having their feet handled. 

The other problem of course is idiots who think giving their pug all the food it wants makes their cute little baby happy. It doesn't, it makes them a suffering, obese tub of lard. For god's sake, keep your pug on a diet. They should have a narrow waist like my Dixie pug up there.

Very nice waistline on ur pug. I hold the dogs for the vet to examine at work, he also trims toenails and draws blood, and some of the hardest dogs to hold are fat pigs with no necks!

My Mom's ex-bf has a black pug. If anything keeps that dog thin, it's that 1. he's not neutered (ex-bf didn't want to do that to him) and B. he gets walked 3 miles to work every day. His coat color is also very slimming.

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.

My god, German Shepherds are smart.  Scary smart.  Problem solving smart.  When he was a puppy, my shepherd would sit and stare at a problem, like a toy under an overturned clothes basket, and just look at it.  Then after about a minute, he would nose the basket over the edge of the stairs until the toy dropped out the bottom and reach over and grab it.  No flurry of activity or panic.  Just look, analyse, and solve.

Poodles were originally bred to be hunting dogs.

God news for you all. These intelligence ratings are based on how quickly a dog can learn a command and how many times you need to repeat a command to get a response. A "smart" dog is one that learns quickly and responds quickly. A "dumb" dog is one that learns slowly and needs to have a command repeated multiple times.

Since you're in the know, I'll share. Was standing outside with the neighbors, when we saw the ladder that was up against the side of the house move about three feet over so that it was now leaning against the fence. After a few moments the ladder started to kinda rock a bit...all of a sudden there's my dog, jumping the fence. We didn't believe it was real, so we put everything back the way it was. Took her even less time on her second escape attempt! Guess she just wanted to be where the action was.

Chaser. The Border Collie.

It isn't simply knowing words. It's the capacity of that dog to make abstractions.

First it was "doll". And the dog would fetch a doll from another room.
They then changed the doll, and it would still fetch a doll from among other items.
Then, they showed the dog a picture of a doll. And the dog was able to fetch it.

Language, memory, abstraction. It's smarter than a lot of people who drive cars.

What soulful brown eyes. I read a poem once (wish I could find it for you) written from the perspective of a loved pet that had passed on. What it boiled down to was that they don't leave a will, but if they could they would leave their always full bowl, the hand that would pet them, their warm bed at night, to a dog that had never known these things.

We now have Boston Terriers.  I've learned more about dogs from mine than I have from another dog I've ever owned.
The little female that imprinted on me has taught me how people can be so desperately in love with their dog.  After decades of dog ownership I finally get it.
When I come home from work, this is the first dog that has ever fallen over when I walk in the door.
All she wants is to be near me, and treats, treats are big, and play and be near me.
And smart, wicked smart.  Not crafty smart but smart with real horsepower behind it.  She's better at learning than I am at teaching her.
We have three Bostons and a 50lb mutt.  All four are rescued and spayed or neutered.

Yeah they're smart.  We also found out that they don't have to fart if you feed them the good food not the cheap crap.  So we're getting smarter too.

O Pug! by Stevie Smith is a great poem.  A short excerpt...


O Pug, some people do not like you,
But I like you,

I don't mind,
One person says he is always conscious of your behind,
Is that your fault?

Some people say that boxers are dumb and I've known a few that would make a bag of hammers look smart, but then I saw something at the beach that made me change my mind. This was a fairly sheltered little inlet, no waves. A guy threw a toy out into the water and sent his boxer to fetch it. She obviously didn't like the water and wasn't happy about it. She stood at the very edge of the water, hesitating, until she realized that there were some large rocks off to the side. She swam out to the rocks, picked her way along them until she had the shortest possible distance left to swim, then went out, got her toy, and went back to her owner the same way. Then the clueless oaf threw the toy back out into the water....

If you dream of having a dog who will play endless games of fetch at the beach, maybe you should get a dog who actually likes to do that. Possibly a breed with "retriever" somewhere in its name.

It really depends on the breeders, you get a crappy breeder who's inbreeding you are going to get a dog as dumb as rocks.

Breeds like Irish Setter, Dalmatians, Cocker Spaniels, etc got their breeds destroyed because they became popular and unscrupulous breeders over-bred them to make a buck.

Moreover, breeds have been harmed because a certain look became popular in showing circles or are considered "cute". like For example, the flat faces of bulldogs causing severe breathing and overheating issues, drastically reducing their average lifespan to 6 years. Moreover, the small heads of King Charles Cavalier Spaniels can cause epilepsy.

Alexei Novikov: 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 hate to tell you.. But my Chihuahua  beats the hell out of my cat every chance he gets. And she, my cat, is pretty good at fighting. Shes even got me a few times with her claws and caused some decent bleeding. And hes not stupid but actually really smart. He knows when to steal my food. He figured out how to keep warm. He knows how to manipulate people into giving him what he wants. He even steals my covers when I am sleeping at night, multiple times if he needs to.

gordian: My husky/border collie/chow mix is crazy smart, and a total conspiracy theorist. She connects the strangest events -- got freaked out by a motorboat's wake passing on a river once in Louisiana, and now absolutely refuses to get close to the ocean because of the waves. Is highly suspicious of guys in hats and sunglasses. Expects me to howl with her whenever she hears coyotes (not so much conspiracy theorist there, but it always cracks me up). Glares at me when I offer her water after short walks, because she connects it to me telling her to get back in the car in the middle of long road trips when she still wants to run around and sniff stuff. Being on a leash when meeting other dogs = other dog is evil and she has to turn into a raving Cujo-sounding maniac; being off leash when meeting other dogs = other dog is cool new buddy.

Love her to bits, but she's a nut. I'm pretty sure she believes in black helicopters and chem-trails.


I'd love to see a pic of your dog.  The mix sounds adorable.
