When you build up a bond with your dog, you will know that your own pet is the most loyal dog you can find. This doesn't matter what breed they are. They will be affectionate, friendly and loyal to their family thanks to long periods spent together and all of your experiences. Being a loyal dog is something the most protective dog breeds exhibit, often due to a history of being used as guard dogs or companion dogs in war time.
Although the most loyal dog breeds often do come with long histories, newer breeds have just as much chance of being a loyal and protective companion of their adopted family. Here we look at the breeds which are known for being very loyal and share some key facts, characteristics and temperament.
