Now you may see this breed, known as the ‘little devil’, as small and cute – but that’s only when they’re asleep.

This is because it’s in their nature to be territorial and they always want to stay the youngest in the family. Therefore, they may become overly aggressive and stubborn.
Rottweilers are well known for their size and expertise in bringing livestock together.

Continuing the list of energetic dogs; next up comes a Siberian Husky. They are also extremely clingy and are in need of constant affection!
