While all dogs are cute, adorable, and funny from time to time, certain breeds are just so amusing that they are a constant source of entertainment for everyone around them.

Just like humans might or might not have a good sense of humor, some dog breeds appear to be born with it, which makes them comical and even witty, while others are light years away from being that funny.

Yet, we cannot deny the fact that all canines have something appealing around them, something that makes our hearts melt whenever we see them.

As for goofiness and amusement, though, some of them certainly stand out as the masters of great humor and wit.

If you are interested in getting acquainted with those breeds that are known to be rather funny, either because you want to get one of those puppies or simply because you like to know these things, then you definitely have to read on.

The first thing you will want to do when you see a Neapolitan Mastiff is pet its wrinkly head. A smile will automatically form on your face and it will stay there until you realize that this large dog is trying to sit in your lap regardless of how old it is.

That’s when you will probably burst into laughter until tears start rolling from your eyes. After all, few things are funnier than seeing a large canine behaving like a little puppy and not having the slightest notion of how big it actually is.

This disregard of its own size is exactly what you will get if you decide to adopt a Neapolitan Mastiff. Their goofy nature will make them think that they are a small puppy for as long as they live, which means that they will be a constant source of amusement for everyone around them.

Apart from this funny nature, these dogs can be quite protective of their owners and they are definitely rather affectionate and caring.

Chinese Crested

In case you are looking for the exact opposite of a Neapolitan Mastiff, i.e. a small canine that has the confidence of a giant and behaves as if it runs the world, then you should go for the Chinese Crested.

Their mere appearance is probably enough to get you smiling. Yet, the appearance coupled with a huge ego and an enormous level of self-esteem is undoubtedly going to have you rolling on the floor laughing. When tiny canines behave like giants, things are bound to get funny.

These dogs are also quite lively and always on alert, which makes it seem as if they were the best guard dogs in the world, despite their size. Given their size and their low exercise needs, they are perfect for apartments and can actually live in any type of an environment.

Quick to adapt to any new circumstances, these canines can make for the perfect traveling companions as well.

Brussels Griffon

Have you ever seen a tiny dog that looks like a combination of an old man and, possibly, a monkey? If you are having a hard time picturing this, then I suggest you Google the Brussels Griffon.

You will understand what I am talking about in a matter of seconds and you’ll see that my description above is not an exaggeration at all. With their fluffy and hairy beards, these canines are definitely going to cause some laughs wherever they appear.

Their personality most certainly complements their appearance. In simple words, they are playful, energetic and appear to have an amazing sense of humor. Don’t make the mistake of thinking that this breed is a pampered one and that it will spend its time cuddling on your lap and doing nothing else.

As I have mentioned, its personality will complement its appearance, meaning that it will be as stubborn as an old man sometimes, and as active and goofy as a monkey other times. Believe it or not, the Brussels Griffon is known for its hunting skills, which can also result in some weird and funny situations.



Since we are talking about small breeds that could make for perfect pets, such as those listed on this site, and that are also rather funny, we cannot fail to mention the Dachshund. Even its nickname, “the wiener dog” is bound to have people burst into laughter.

The best part is, this breed certainly lives up to the nickname, as it has short legs and a long body, beginning with flappy ears and ending in a curvy tail.

Once again, their quirky behavior certainly goes well with their sort of weird, and definitely funny, appearance. In short, you will never get bored with a Dachshund around.

Bull Terrier

Standing out from the crowd thanks to its long, egg-shaped head, the Bull Terrier is a loving and caring animal that will win everyone’s heart over pretty quickly.

What makes them funny is not their appearance as much as its clown-like behavior and amusing character. If this dog were a human, it would probably be a stand-up comedian that would always get laughs from the audience.
