What are some unique personality traits of exotic dog breeds?


Your dog’s personality is one of the biggest factors in choosing a new dog. Your dog’s personality will dictate how it interacts with other pets, children, other dogs, and even its own family. It’s not just limited to dogs either – many people strive to find the perfect companion for their family whether that be a dog or cat. Here are four unique personalities of some of the most popular exotic dog breeds found around the world.

There are many different dog breeds, but not everyone knows about them. Even if you’ve researched some of the most popular breeds, there’s still a lot more to learn. One way to learn more about certain breeds is by reading their handler’s statements or articles.

The Petit Basset Griffon Vendeen

The Petit Basset Griffon Vendeen is a small dog that has the typical look of a basset hound. It has a short, wide body and a long, thin tail. Its coat is usually white, but it can be any color from black to red. Its ears are small and upright, and it has large dark brown eyes. The Griffon Vendeen’s personality is much like that of its larger counterparts. It is affectionate and playful, but also sensitive and wary of strangers.

It may try to be dominant toward other dogs in the household, but if it meets with resistance, will quickly give up on the idea and become submissive instead. The Griffon Vendeen loves to run around outside or in a room with many toys to play with. It can be taught tricks such as sitting, shaking hands, or waving hello by using positive reinforcement training methods rather than force or punishment.

The Finnish Lapphund

The Finnish Lapphund is an intelligent, loyal, and affectionate dog. They are very friendly and playful, but not hyper or dominant. Their intelligence makes them excellent family dogs. They love people and will always be your best friend.

The Finnish Lapphund is small in size, about 15-17 inches at the shoulder for males and 14-16 inches for females. Their head should be triangular with a large muzzle that tapers to a point at the end. A long tail is also an important feature of this breed as it can help prevent injuries from occurring during playtime with other animals, such as cats or rabbits.

The Komondor

The Komondor, a Hungarian sheepdog, is a unique breed that has both an excellent herding instinct and an affectionate personality. This breed was originally bred to guard the flocks of sheep from wolves and other predators. The Komondor’s coat is short and curly, with a dense undercoat and a very long outer coat that flows behind him like water. The dog’s coat also has a distinctive “knot” on top of his head. This knot is called an “Alfalfa,” which is named after alfalfa, the food that Hungarian shepherds fed their dogs.

The Komondor can be found in many colors including black, brown, white, and red. In some cases, there may be patches of white on their faces or legs as well as patches of tan or cream on their backs or sides. The tail consists of two rings: one ring at the base where it attaches to the body; and one larger ring just above it which curls over itself in a spiral fashion.

The Peruvian Inca Orchid

The Peruvian Inca Orchid is an unusual breed that was originally bred to be a guard dog. They are very loyal and protective of their owners, but they don’t like strangers. The Peruvian Inca Orchid is also a great watchdog, which means that it will alert you if there is danger. The Peruvian Inca Orchid has a thick coat that protects them from the sun and rain. Their fur can be any color, but it usually comes in shades of black or brown.

Their coat is usually short and smooth, but some may have longer hair on the head, neck, and legs. They are known for being very intelligent and alert dogs that love playing games with their owners. They are also very energetic dogs who need lots of exercise each day so that they don’t become bored or destructive when left alone for long periods of time.

The Chinese Crested

The Chinese Crested is a small, non-shedding dog with a short coat that has a crest on the top of its head. They have a thick double coat with a hard undercoat and thin guard hairs. The crest is not part of their normal coat but it is usually present in the show ring.

The Chinese Crested comes in three colors: blue, red, and fawn. The colors are determined by both parents. Blue dogs carry a recessive gene for color, so if a blue dog mates with an orange-fawn dog, there will be no puppies born with this unique coloration. Red and fawn are dominant colors that can be passed on to offspring.

Chinese Crested dogs do well in families where someone is willing to take time out of their day to train them when they need it. They become very loyal companions who love to please their owners. They are intelligent dogs who learn quickly and are easy to train because they respond well to commands given in a calm tone of voice using positive reinforcement methods such as praise or treats as rewards for good behavior or eliminating bad behavior (such as jumping up on people).


Exotic dog breeds have one-of-a-kind characteristics that distinguish them from other dog breeds. The Thai Ridgeback, for example, known for its coat color and size, is a graceful and elegant dog. The Komondor is also large in size but can sometimes have an intimidating temperament. Though there are some personality traits of dogs that are common for all breeds, these unique qualities often make exotic canine breeds stand out from the rest.

Exotic dog breeds are an eclectic bunch—one that doesn’t exactly conform to a standard behavioral template. Although their unique personalities might surprise you, it’s important to understand how you can best live with them. In other words, don’t just assume that these dogs need the same thing from you as any old dog. That would be a mistake! (And wouldn’t be all that creative.) Know before you go. Embrace the quirks and make them your own.
