10 Most Funny Looking Dog Breeds

Dogs come in sizes and looks… but these 10 dog breeds are simply funny-looking ones. Check them out!

1. Puli

Look at those dreadlocks. Am I seeing a Jamaican moving mop? Or this dog simply imitating Bob Marley”s signature dreadlocks? One thing is sure, this funny looking dog breed hails from Hungary.

The Puli is famous for its long, corded coat whose tight curls make it virtually water resistant. They’re energetic, intelligent and loyal. Definitely, these usually black dogs be the center of attention in your home.

2. Chinese Crested

Chinese crested usually comes out the winner in the yearly “Most Ugly Dog” contest. But to fair, they ain”t ugly at all, just exotic looking dog breed. Contrary to popular belief, Chinese Crested originated from Africa and not in China.

The breed comes in two types: with fur (Powder Puff) and the (Hairless), with silky hair on the head (the crest), tail (plume), and feet (socks).

He”s a beauty – elegant and graceful and full of surprises. This dog is, amazingly, incredibly tolerant of heat! A Chinese Crested can lie in 100-degree sun for hours – no need to wear sun block or moisturizing lotion to protect its skin.

3. Bedlington Terrier

Is this beauty disguising as a lamb just to get fair treatment from his master? Nope, this really is a funny looking dog! A native of Bedlington, England, this lamblike dog with a wedge-shaped head, triangular eyes, and wooly hair is wooly hair is perfect for allergy-prone dog owners.

4. Brussels Griffon

With its distinct, eye-catching fuzzy beards, the Brussels Griffon is definitely a stunner. Named after its city of origin: Brussels, Belgium, this terrier-like Brussels Griffon is a small dog with a big personality! Billed as a dog “full of self-importance,” the hilarious looking toy dog is proud, spunky, energetic, and comical. Even with his miniature look, he is a “bossy” dog – able to dominate other dogs.

5. Bergamasco

Will somebody calls a hair stylish. This dog needs a hair makeover. The Bergamasco is another mop dog which traces its origin in the Italian Alps near Bergamo. He is a herding dog with the unusual matted coat. The coat may come in gray or silver gray to brown and black. With a funny looking dog like this, herding and guarding sheep and cattle in the Italian Alps is a fun experience.

6. Xoloitzcuintli

The Xoloitzcuintli or (Xolo for short) is a breed of dog native to Mexico and Central America. Sometimes called the Mexican Hairless, the Xoloitzcuintli or (Xolo for short) is not only funny looking but also a rare breed of dog.

In their native Mexico and Central America, locals believe this dog has special “healing power”. They believe that the heat given off by their body is a cure for certain ailments.

Prized as both a companion and guard dog, Xolos may come in three sizes: toy, miniature and standard.

7. Neapolitan Mastiff

With its massive wrinkles and sags, only his master will love this funny looking dog. But don”t be deceived by its look, this gentle giant is fearless. His massive size and bestial appearance makes him an ideal guard dog. Just bear with his loud snoring, snuffling, and drooling.

8. Bull Terrier

This highly unusual looking dog made our list because of its distinctive looks – an “egg shaped” head and unique triangle-shaped eyes.

Exuberant, playful, mischievous, comical, assertive, stubborn best describes the bull terrier.

9. Komondor

Another pride of Hungary, the Komondor is acclaimed for its long, white corded coat. What really makes this funny looking canine remarkable is its fur: reaching up to 27 cm in length, the Komondor has the thickest fur in the canine world. That’s one shaggy dog!

Dandie Dinmont Terrier

To round up our list, the plucky Dandie Dinmont Terrier can certainly bring chuckles. This rare (and quite nearly extinct) dog breed owns an elongated body, short little legs and a peculiar silken “top-knot” of hair on the head.

Adding beauty to this small dog is its large, round, wide-set eyes; a well-defined muzzle and a “scimitar” tail covered with a rather crisp double coat.

    I love the mastiff most of all. I don't like dogs that are too hairy, they're cute, but so hard to maintain.

  2. May De Jesus-Palacpac

    I enjoyed every photo of it. The Puli is my favorite, I hope we could get a dog this year. Thank you for sharing

  3. Manu Kalia

    Never heard of the breeds here except for the bull terrier as I've seen some of those dogs personally & online. The Puli, Bergamasco, and Komondor looks like they missed their grooming schedules! Don't they find it hard to move around with that kind of fur?

  4. Louise Banta

    Oh! They looks so cute and amazing! It's indeed funny looking dog breeds.. Thanks for sharing it!

  5. Kylie wenn

    Bull terrier is terrifying to me, i dont know why. I feel like its gonna attack anyone even if the dog is small.

  6. lee rosales

    The Puli & Komondor furs are the most unique. It is too cute or too messy due to the excessive furs.

  7. Kelly Chin

    Woof! woof!!! Omg the Puli & Komondor are the best among the rest, look at their furs so unique.

  8. Sunshine Kelly

    This is both informative & amusing at the same time. This is the first time I've heard of the Puli and Bergamasco. Both these dogs seriously look like they need a bath & a lot of grooming.

  9. Russ R.

    Oh man! these are some really interesting looking dogs! I hope though that no one buys these gorgeous animal just for the novelty, only to abandon them when that interest wears off or the fur gets too hard to maintain. That will be rather cruel.

  10. Ling Tan

    im not really a dog person and don't really know the breeds in general. the last one is my favourite

  11. Nicol

    Many of the dog breeds look like fossils.. I believe they would look more "normal" with some grooming! The bull terrier looks pretty okay though!

  12. OY HZ

    your article is just so interesting,so much dog breeds here and all have quite funny look,I think Komondor is the funniest look among all here 😀

  13. Debarpan

    Since I was a little child looking at dog books, I have really been curious to see a Bedlington, a Puli or a Dandy Dinmont. But so far I have not had the chance to see one.

  14. Fred Hawson

    I have met several Komondor before at Crufts – their hair is all matted, feel so sorry for them especially when we have a heat wave!

  15. Sim @ SimsLife.co.uk

    I feel that the dogs are not funny looking but weird sounding! The names like Bergamasco, Komondor and Xoloitzcuintli are so difficult to pronounce!

  16. Tiffany Yong W.T.

    My personal fav: Bull terrier.. Even comic has them in too. Haha.. cute~

  17. Sin Yee

    Hahaha, I only know about the Bull Terrier in the list. The Bergamasco just looks weird to me!

  18. Anne V

    Thanks for sharing the details as I am not any pet owner but love them and my son wants to keep one but he is allergic so we miss this fun.

  19. Pooja Kawatra

    They look funny, but personally I regard them as cute, especially their fur and their staunch. I love playing with them. Hehehe…

  20. Gil Camporazo

    I love dogs so this was so much fun to see! The Brussels Griffon looks like a baby Chewbacca! Haha! 🙂

  21. Jason P.

    Great dogs I've ever seen. But I love Brussels Griffon more coz It looks so cute. Wish to have that in our home.

  22. June Warren Bordas

    Bergamasco and Puli are my favorites as funny-looking dogs. The hairs are so damned heavy-looking.

  23. Fernando Lachica

    I've actually seen the Puli and Komondor and I love them. That Dandie Terrier is also pretty cute and I don't find him ugly.

  24. Amanda Love

    I've always found the Bull Terrier funny-looking because of the weird shape of the front of its skull/face. 😀 Nice to find the Komondor, Bergamasco and Puli on this list too. I love dogs, but I never ever thought of owning these breeds. Grooming them must be a nightmare! XD

  25. Sumi Go

    First time I've seen some of those breeds. The curly hair is nice to look at, but I don't think I'm up for it. I can just imagine the house when they start to shed the hair.

  26. Mia Foo

    the bergamasco, puli and komondor just looked like they've been neglected for ages because they just look like they've got horribly matted fur. the brussels griffon is adorable, though!
