10 of the most loyal dog breeds

5) Akita

Known as the Great Japanese Dog, Akita’s have been used as war, hunting and guard dogs in Japan for decades. Bred to be a large game hunter, the Akita has a quiet nature but remains a loyal, courageous and protective companion, according to Frei. Quite possibly the most well-known story of a dog’s dedication and loyalty, an Akita named Hachiko would wait for his master every day at the train station to accompany him home and did so for nine years following hisowner’s death. A statue was built in the dog’s honor after his death.

    I have a silver toy poodle and he is the most loyal and loving dog, Poodles bever seem to be mentioned in articles about lap dogs either, He sure loves me unconditionally.
