Here at AZ Animals, we’re all about scientifically-sourced research that helps our readers better understand and connect with the animals in the world around them.

But sometimes, we just need to enjoy the beauty and joy that animals can bring us. So today I present for your consideration: The top 10 happiest dogs in the world.

Each of these dogs is sure to make you smile!

10. German Shepherd

I can’t tell which part of this German Shepherd is happier. His mouth or his ears!

9. Pit Bull Terrier

I hope we can find a ball big enough for this Pit Bull Terrier to play with! What a smile.

8. Labrador Retriever

This Labrador Retriever is happy to let you in on his secret!

7. Dalmatian

Normally associated with firehouses, I think this Dalmatian would be happy to play with you anywhere!

6. Chihuahua

This chihuahua looks like he’d be equally happy cuddling with you or taking a nap right about now.

5. Alaskan Malamute

Even dogs that are normally kept indoors need to roll around in the grass, like this ecstatic Alaskan Malamute here.

4. Pug

Speaking of taking a nap, this pug reminds us dogs need recharge time just like we do.

3. Australian Shepherd

Just like humans, this Australian Shepherd shows you can smile with your mouth and your eyes at the same time.

2. Pomeranian Spitz

This Pomeranian is more floof than actual dog, but that doesn’t make him any less happy! Me either.

1. Golden Retriever

2 seconds after this picture, this Golden Retriever puppy was definitely happy to eat that dandelion.

A Butterfly

There are thought to be up 20,000 species!
