7 of 10


The Briard isn't nearly as popular as some of the other family-friendly breeds on this list, but her devoted fans call her "a heart wrapped in fur." This is a French guard dog who takes her responsibility to her family and home very seriously — and that goes double for children. Proper training and socialization are necessary to keep her protectiveness from crossing the line into aggression.
