Suggest some underrated dog breeds (underrated in terms of characters on DA, not necessarily in real life) for a new canine character I might make at some point? (See my comment for what breeds I am not looking for)

I would say the Staffordshire Bull Terrier. Its highly underrated, given a lot of bad rep. But they are loyal, softies, and very friendly. (I don't care what people think about them. I've been around this breed long enough to know)

Imma suggest Chow Chow or Chihuahua. I love my own dogs so much, so maybe you'd love these breeds too. X3 (Or not. They're still awesome no matter what. :D )

I have always had newfies as my family dog and they are an amazing breed, also near to impossible to find on DA, if you made a Newfoundland character i would freak out with joy ^u^

I think every breed on the list has been mentioned here beyond just plain mutt.


....but why not mutt? They're super underrated all on their own, and they can be mixes of several breeds XP

I haven't really seen many dachshund characters, but that's probably because their bodies are kinda weird to draw.. Borzois are a little more common but still not as common as, say, huskies. Small dogs like rat terriers, fox terriers, etc are generally uncommon .o.
