Whether they captured our hearts with their charming personalities or captured our attention with headlines, books and movies, we all have our favorite dog breeds that we want to know more about.

The sweet little Maltese is the quintessential companion dog, and he knows that his job is to love and be loved. Despite his tiny frame, he's got a whole lot of hair that needs daily grooming. But don't worry, he's happy to cuddle in your lap while you brush!

When the Beagle found out that she made Google's top 10 most searched breeds list, she probably let out a long "Aaaaarrrroooooh!" Any dedicated Beagle fan knows this classic howl well... and loves it!

Since skyrocketing to fame with the popularity of Lassie, the Collie has maintained his impressive standing as a devoted family dog. This affectionate canine loves to expend his energy with fun activities like learning tricks or competing in herding events.
The compact Shih Tzu was originally bred for royalty in her homeland of China, and, trust us, she knows it! It's no surprise that her loyal, lap-dog personality is a favorite among dog lovers.

If we had to guess, we'd say a certain Pom named Boo helped make his breed one of the top 10 most searched types of dogs. But the Pomeranian isn’t new to being popular — this spunky canine became quite trendy in 1888 when Queen Victoria fell in love with one while vacationing in Italy.
The endearing Pug draws in his many admiring fans with his bulging eyes, wrinkled mug, stubby legs and corkscrew tail... and then he wins them over with his charming personality. This year, the comical breed starred in many of our favorite videos: "Celebrate Christmas, Pug Style," "Four Pugs and a Sled," and "Pug Gets Emotional at End of 'Homeward Bound.'"
What’s not to love about the Golden Retriever? This popular family dog is cheerful, friendly and, best of all, always wears a huge grin.
The Poodle is one of the most versatile dog breeds around. You can find her (in all her primped and preened glory) performing in the show ring, racing through agility courses or simply enjoying the company of her family.

The Chihuahua is tiny, talkative and the pet of choice for many celebrities. He might be No. 2 on Google, but he will do whatever he can to be No. 1 with his human of choice.

With his precious wrinkled face and easygoing personality, it's no surprise that the Bulldog tops Google’s list of most searched dog breeds!
