    Thanks to Drew Curtis' FARK fpr the link to this story with which I strongly disagree with their number one pick of a Chihuahua! Mine is often too smart.

    People tend to confuse "trainability" with intelligence....

    I am glad my previous breeds of dogs weren't listed there, or I would have been livid. :lol: And I DO question what qualifications the so-called veterinary professionals, included. Veterinary office workers, too, maybe??? :lol: And really, who cares about intelligence. I care about loyalty and good dispositions, more than any other attribute, not that a less-intelligent dog can't have it all. Just as in people. :thup:

    From your link: ( Snip )

    We recently listed the five smartest dog breeds, and, unsurprisingly, our readers were quick to comment on other breeds that show enormous intelligence.

    Now we're sharing another result from that survey of 122 veterinary professionals. We aren't going to say "dumbest" because all dogs have their own kind of genius, right? But we will say that in the opinion of the surveyed veterinary professionals, the breeds named here aren't necessarily known for their cleverness even if they are known for having many wonderful characteristics.

    Of course, please know that in no way are we saying these dogs aren't trainable. They just might not keep up with the Border Collie in their obedience class. And that's OK - whether our pets sit at the front of the class or flunk out of puppy school, we love them just the same.

    Most chows that I have encountered have been dumb as a stump.

    There is no dominance of intelligence by breeds alone of canines. That is a fallacy of letting your emotions over run your intelligence.
    I have many dogs of mixed breeds and pure. The pure breeds are mostly the worst while the mixed seem to be smarter.
