Although we realize that dogs are descended in the powerful wolf, distinct dog breeds exhibit an enormous number of features. While some breeds face the cold weather and can pull sleds across the Alaskan tundra, other pups were meant to stay bundled up inside this winter.
The data pros at PetBreeds, a pet data website by Graphiq, used data from Animal Planet as well as the American Kennel Club to seek out the 31 most popular strains that can not manage the cold weather. Their popularity ranks dog breeds in 2015, according to advice from the American Kennel Club.
Many of these canines have short fur (or none at all) and insufficient body fat to keep them snug in freezing temperatures. Size, however, is not a determining factor. Needless to say, tiny strains like Chihuahuas and Shih Tzus would prefer to stay curled on the sofa, but cold temperatures are not handled by larger dogs like Weimaraners and Great Danes well, either.
Make sure you have room about them under the covers or on your own lap in the event you’re considering getting any of these dogs over the holiday season.
