Here is a ranking site;
My Yorkie is listed #27 out of 79 breeds. He is smart and listens well.
My last dog, “Potlatch”, was a Peke-a-Poo, half Pekinese and half Poodle and he was very smart. Looked like a tiny Shish Tsu.
Strange how a few of the smartest are ones likely to attack people, lol. I did not look at the rating of Pit Bulls, or Staffordshires.
There was a great show on the ultra liberal PBS-TV about this
They put all breeds of dogs through a series of various tests
One test was to simply put a towel over the dog’s head and accurately measure how long it took for the dog to remove the towel
Dogs like Border Collies just shook them off instantly
Some dogs took many minutes to figure our how to remove the towel - it was amazing!
Primates also have very different levels of intelligence
Chimp, Orangatan, Gorilla, etc.
Some birds can mimic human speech - some are killing predators, some sing outside your window, some drop colorful fragrant gifts on your new car
I will not infer that humans may also be very different in cognitive skills, jumping, mental processes, running, violence, lifting heavy objects, logic, sports, civil behavior, removing a towel from their head, etc. as it would not be “PC”
We had a Collie when I was young - “Heather” was smarter than many of the current crop of idiots you are now seeing on FNC, CNN, MSNBC
That includes the media staff, guests, and some controversial idiots we now see on the news; especially one alleged primate who uses many prison/gang hand gestures and body movements when he speaks -
DISCLAIMER: You’re on your own on this one; it may not be intelligent to post in print or discuss this with others
So, you’re named after your dog?
My favorite breed, the Australian Shepherd, is listed at #42.
Maybe the ASs they saw were average, but mine was the smartest, most loyal dog I’ve ever owned, with the best personality I’ve ever seen.
If I were to get another dog, that’s the breed I would choose.
Nice link, potlatch.
Thank you for the ping!
