5. French Bulldog
A breed that originated as a companion dog and continues to be used as such today, French Bulldogs are prized for their personable and affectionate nature, according to the AKC.
Recognizable by their large, bat-like ears, they are active without being rowdy and are happy to spend their time indoors and on your lap. Because of their short, flat faces, they must be kept cool in warm weather.
