I am looking for a dog breed (if this exists!) that likes to snuggle.
My dog is completely independent. She has her “own room,” which is our laundry room and she sleeps in there all day and all night.
She loves to hike and she loves to sleep alone.
That is about it. :/
Do you think it just depends on the dog, or have you experienced a breed that you feel “loves to snuggle?” Or at least be pet!
Thank you bees 🙂

My Boston Terrier does! They are pretty active dogs as pups but ours isnt even 2 yet and he hes a snuggler! He loves to sleep with my SO and I and he MUST be under the covers (his rules not ours lol!) He settled down a lot after he got fixed, but that is true for most male dogs anyways!!

We have a black lab and she is one of the snuggliest dogs I have ever met. As a kid we had a lab/rott mix and she really liked to snuggle with me too.
DH and I also have a 2 year old husky/lab mix and she is snuggly too. We also snuggled with them as puppies. The slept in our bed and hung out on the couch with us up until they could make that decision on their own. They still prefer to cuddle 🙂 Our dogs are 2 and 3 years old 🙂

I do! I have a rotweiler and rhodesian ridgeback mix. She looooooves to lay on you. I’m not sure there’s really a breed that does that, I think it’s just the individual dogs.

My dog loves any kind of attention and likes to snuggle. She often lays on my lap while I’m watching TV and has to get in underneath my covers with me in bed to go to sleep. She’s a black pug!

I had a boxer named Daisy that loved to snuggle. She was very active at times, but was very loving and snuggley also. My mom currently has a boxer named Angel who also loves to snuggle. So personally I would say boxers.

my lab/ shite shepherd mix loves to be close to you all the time… not neccessarily snuggle though.
but my australian shepherd mix is the absolute most cuddliest dog i have ever seen in my life. she puts her head in the groove of your neck and shell lay with you all day if you let her! i <3 her! im not sure if its the breed though…. she was a rescue and when we first got her she didnt want to come near us let alone snuggle (we think someone beat her as shed just pee if you went to go touch her or moved too fast… so sad) now shes a crazy cuddle bug! 🙂

I have three dogs, and two of them LOVE to cuddle. My oldest, who is almost 13, is a lab/beagle mix who has never in her life (since I’ve had her, anyway) cuddled, kissed, or played with any toys. The other two are the total opposite- they do all of these and play all the time, but when they aren’t “on” they are pushed up against you, sleeping. Preferably under a blanket, or if it’s Bean the mini dachshund he’s wrapped around your neck like a neck pillow. I have definitely noticed that the burrowing under covers seems to be a small breed thing, my mini doxie does it and my chi mix does too.
I’ve also heard males are much more cuddly and this is def true in my experience with my own dogs. I do think it’s more personality than breed 🙂

Holy cuteness! My dog would NEVER do that! She is very particular about how she is positioned 🙂
I love Boxers. Sometimes they look so “badass” too, but they are usually so sweet.
Rhodesians are awesome! I always wanted one.
I love labs. Mine was so large he couldn’t really snuggle. I think he thought he was just too big. He was 90 pounds 🙂

I have never known a Boston. Thanks! I will look into them 🙂
I kind of want an Italian Greyhound:
They seem so cute and like they have big personalities. I have never had a small dog though!

I know their (ridiculous) media image seems to suggest otherwise, but some of the biggest snugglers out there are pitbulls, as any owner will attest!! Mine is snuggled at my feet as I type this 🙂 If I’m up against one arm of the sofa and the whole rest of it is open, she’ll squeeze into the little space between me and the sofa arm and snuggle into a little ball on my lap! Shhh, don’t tell her she’s 65 lbs!

Our Newfoundland dog LOVES to snuggle! He gets into bed with us every night for a snuggle, and then comes back in the morning to snuggle (we only have a queen sized bed, so he can’t stay the night with both of us there). He also sleeps on the bed when one of us isn’t there.

My friend has two pits and he said they are so sweet and snuggly, that they are literally laying on his feet when he sits down.
That is the cutest thing. He gets his snuggle in before bed and then comes back for more in the morning. That would be like snuggling with a person! he looks so sweet!
I think you are right, I bet it does depend on the individual dog. I used to snuggle with my girl as a puppy, but when I got DH (in my life) he said no more dogs near the bed 🙁 I miss it so much though. That is interesting that your female dog was just never that into it.

I always thought it was really weird. She’s just always been very independent, and a little timid. She does live for treats and food though so at least she gets enjoyment from something, haha.
That pic of that puppy is adoraaaable! Although it really doesn’t look like a greyhound to me. It is just a pic so who knows… but his paws are ginormous!
