I had a dalmatian growing up, and she was a fantastic snuggler. She would sit bolt upright next to you on the couch, and start leaning towards you until her full weight was on you. Then she’d slump down and your lap was her pillow for the foreseeable future.
It definitely depends on the dog, though. A lot of my friends had labs and they were great snugglers. But my parents’ lab that they’ve had for 6 years hates being held! She loves to be petted and fussed over, but the second your arms go around her she bolts.

My dog barely ever leaves my side. He snuggles beside me, on top of me, head on my shoulder, head on my leg, anything. He’s a puggle and he is by far the snuggliest dog I’ve ever owned or seen.

Our beagle is a HUGE snuggler. If you’re sitting down he wants to sit in your lap, if you’re laying down, he lays down right next to you. I’d actually prefer if he was a little less snuggly…

Our pup is a pit bull /beagle mix ( according to the SPCA) and she is an absolute lover. She loves snuggling on the couch and sleeping in bed with us. If she wants under the covers she’ll keep nudging us with her nose until we let her under. And she does this super cute cinnamon roll.
Pit Bulls are actually suppose to be really loving. 🙂

My hound is a major snuggler and so is our lab/terrier mutt. 🙂 I’m not sure what it is, but both of them LOVE to curl up on our feet or behind our legs when we sleep and I love it. They have beds and Lucy (hound) sleeps in hers probably half the night, but in the morning she gets up on our bed. Yep, we let her. Lol.

We have two chihuahuas, and they both love to snuggle. Our girl is full bred, and she’s more of a snuggler than the boy, who’s mixed, we think with Mini Pincher.

Nah, I have a cat which comes upstairs to wake me at 5am to be fed and let out. To be fair, I think my snake is more affectionate, but he might be trying to constrict me for food later, who knows lol

we have a dachshund/border terrier mix, and he LOVES to snuggle. When other people watch him, they comment on how much they love it 🙂 Most nights, its a 3-tiered spoon in our bed, too!

We have two boxers – one male and one female – the male, Bentley, is not very snuggly (I think it has to do with the breeder we got him from), but our girl, Zoe, is very snuggly.
She is my “velcro” boxer… by my side most of the time, when she isn’t out running around the yard with her “brother”. I was so happily surprised because I never thought of a boxer as a snuggler. Love them!

I am so jealous, this is making me miss my lab so much right now! He went to a “better place” this year- as in, he really did- in some ways. I gave him to an older couple that had a fenced yard and a cabin on a lake. They walk him everyday, have grandkids, chipmunks (in the yard), feed him organic food. I just miss him so much. I thought it was the right thing to do- for him because we are in an apartment. I miss him like crazy though! He loved attention.
My German Shorthair just loves running and birds.
Thanks for all the responses, I love reading about your dogs! (And cats too!) WeddingBee is on the funk today, so I haven’t been able to catch up on all the responses- now- to catch up…

We have a Boston Terrier, too and he has his PhD in snuggling. As I type this he has himself wrapped around my back. He gives us this sad look when my husband and I hug and we have to pick him up and put him in the middle of the sandwich. He sleeps under the covers and early in the morning he comes up between us and sleeps with his head on one of our pillows. Most Bostons we have met are snugglers 🙂

My parents have a mini dachshaund that is a lap dog. He is super snuggly 🙂 I think it has a lot to do with the personality of the dog though.

My corgi LOVES to cuddle! He is always crawling on our laps and curling up next to us. I really don’t know if it’s breed specific or just his personality, he is such a lovey, clingy little guy.

My friend has a Dachshund and she said her Dachshund loves to snuggle 🙂

I have had 3 dalmatians that love to snuggle. I volunteer at the local animal shelter & if you were here & asked me or the people there, we would know what individual dogs would be, because we work with the dogs all the time. You could get a lab that hates cuddling & wants to be left alone OR you could get a lab that is the best snuggler ever, just depends on the dog. My grandparents have many labs & each one is completely different.
I found this answer for you here: YAHOO ANSWERS (won’t let me link it but I will add it in later). This is the “best answer”:
what you are looking for are personality traits not breed characteristics. i suggest going to a shelter and talking to some of the staff or volunteers there. try a small rescue as well, they tend to spend more time with the animals than the county shelters…
