The 9 Loving Dog Breeds That Live Well With Cats

#1: Golden Retriever

"Golden" describes Golden Retrievers, one of the most cats-friendly dogs. Golden Retrievers are kind and welcome cats as family. Initially, this dog breed should be taught not to pursue the cat.

The friendly Beagle may like cats since it was raised to hunt in groups. Thus, it considers a cat sibling a groupmate. BeaglePro advises against having many Beagles since they may develop a "pack mentality" and attack the cat.

Pugs are amiable and wonderful with cats. Cats and Pugs become close friends if they can share their territory. While people are away, the kitten and Pug may play and connect since Pugs enjoy attention.

#5: Bichon Frise

Bichon Frises are joyful and amusing, making them good siblings and cat playmates. A cat that prefers alone may find the Bichon Frise's extroverted nature too much. Thus, this lovely dog breed will befriend any cat that tolerates.

A Herding Group member, the Shetland Sheepdog, or "Sheltie," is cat-friendly. Cat parents should choose Shetland Sheepdogs because they are calm, trainable, and friendly.

#8: Poodle

All three Poodle sizes make excellent housemates for a feline friend. Toy Poodles tend to play with cats, Miniatures generally tolerate them, and Standards pretend they don't exist.

It's likely that the Maltese will be nice to the cat because this calm dog breed likes to lie on the couch and not get involved in the cat's business. But the cat might be able to take advantage of how sweet and gentle a Maltese is.
