10 Funniest Dog Breeds in the World

Let’s face it — there are some very strange and weird-looking dogs out there. So, what are the funniest dog breeds? Here’s my own completely biased list (with photos!) of the top 10.

Puli funniest dog breeds

The Puli may well be the funniest-looking dog breed in the world.

Look at those dreadlocks. The Puli looks like some sort of twisted, animatronic dirty mop. The Puli is a Hungarian herder whose tight curls make it virtually waterproof. It is similar to the much larger Komondor. These dogs are usually black, and some of the cream-colored ones have black faces. They’re fast and agile, headstrong and loyal. And mighty funny looking’. They easily take the top spot on my list.

    In my opinion the most weird and funny dog is No. 2 on your list – Chinese Crested :) My neighbor has one, and yeah… its look is really unfathomable, though it’s really cute and funny, and wears those funny jumpers. For me, the Chinese Crested is definitely No. 1.

    I have a puli puppy and can testify to their weird coats! She is starting to matt up which is actually something YOU WANT to happen! You just separate the mats and the cords form naturally, its as if the breed was around before dog grooming was, but be aware, not to do this with other breeds as their skin will become irritated, and the coat is not meant for other breeds unless it happens naturally!

       Thanks Katherine. We’d love to see a photo of your puli puppy! (Sounds like we might need to do an article on puli grooming soon.)

    I’d like to request that you add to the Chinese Crested info that the ones you see in the “ugly dog” contests are at the extreme end of the continuum of baldness and bad teeth (genetic). The “standard” doesn’t look like the one in your photo. Also important is that part of the standard breed is the variation known as Powderpuff. They are not hairless; quite hairy in fact! I have one, Snuffy, a Pet Partners Therapy and R.E.A.D dog; he’s funny and cute and smart and loving! Thanks!
