    • I think most affectionate goes to the Golden Retriever. I dont think I can sayt here is a dumb dog, to them, they are smart. I've heard Goldens are also one of the easiest to train. Apartment living, something small. Maybe a shitzu or however its spelled. Or ever a Shippu (Not sure hows that spelled either.) A cross between shitzu and poodle. Anyways. I would choose the golden. :) My own opinion.

    • Difficult question to answer because really any breed can be affectionate. Depends though, affectionate towards you or others or both? Ive always heard Chihuahuas are one-person dogs but im sure with the right socialization they can be lovely to everyone as with any dog.Can't really say any specific breed is dumb. I was always told Pugs are dumb and stubborn. People think that too, i shocked many people at the dog show when me and my Pug done obedience in the ring and won a rosette. Simply because beforehand somebody else entered their Pug and it pulled them around and ignored them in the ring for best handler so you know. And it has also took two weeks for my Pug to learn to skateboard and when he was little it took one day to learn to high five and just 10 minutes to learn how to close my laptop so i guess it varies from dog to dog or more like owner to owner.Small dogs are good for apartments. Large dogs could survive as long as they were given long outings or walks/runs each day.

    • A. all medium and some large dog breeds are affectionate... dogs are known for their love and affection.B. if you don't train a dog well, or don't interact with him then he is bound to turn out to be dumb.C. labradors, cocker spaniels are the easiest to train as far as i know. D. for apartment living, a medium or small dog is good. it depends on what your schedules and requirements are. 1. beagles- they are very philosophical. very moody but loving. but very adamant and so difficult to train.2. cocker spaniels- very energetic and friendly but will bark at strangers at the slightest of suspicion.3. dashunds- they are small and loving but slightly jealous dog.4. labs- are adorable but big and so not very suitable for apartments.5. pugs are good for those who dont have a lot of time to take their dogs for exercise. they are basically toy breed and hence dont need much exercise.-- hope this has helped you.

    • both at same place on the affectionate scale areLabrador Retriever & Golden Retrieverhttp://www.petmedsonline.org/top-10-playful-affectionate-dog-breeds.htmlit's a toss between two breeds.

    • It doesn't work like that with popularity listings. Every dog is different and there are friendly and less friendly dogs in every breed. Even a Great Dane can live in an apartment.You'd do better thinking about dogs that are high-maintenance and that get quickly bored if there is nothing to keep them stimulated. Potential dog owners have to be honest about their lifestyle; any decent breeder will want to know how their pup might end up being looked after. Every decent breeder will also be a better judge of a pup's character than you or I might be.Ask, get into conversation, listen, go away and think about it, make up your mind and then have a happy life with your new dog. No impulse buying... not taking off the shelf.

    • Affectionate.That is almost impossible to answer, it is easy to suggest the most tollerent dogs such as Labradores, but is that the same as affection? I had a westie that loved to wrestle and play but never really liked a cuddle, he tollerated it in a way that meant "Bob likes it so I'll do it, but frankly I'm not too keen", but then the german shepard loved a cuddle, a bit too much really because when you settled down for the night in the cozy chair he would be straight there sprawled across me, 1/2 a ton of furball on top of you on a summer evening is not the most comfortable thing in the world.All of the dogs I have had, many different breeds, have shown varrying degrees of affection. You have to accept that the dog you get even after training has it's own tastes when it comes to affection.Dumbest.This is simmilar in that I don't believe even for a moment that a particular breed is more intelligent than another. I have never had a dog, whether I got him as a pup or adult, that could not be trained.Of the dogs I would say that the smartest I had was the westie, most commands he learnt very quickly. That smartness though gives him a higher level of independence than other dogs I have had, he will make decisions for himself. That can be both good and bad depending on circumstances, so it becomes even more important to train him, in particular the "wait" command, as in previous posts of mine in here about training.I can't pick a breed that I can put above others for my sort of life, though I have only had average sized to large dogs, I have a garden and direct walking access to the countryside. Appartments have the potential to be low exercise high bordom level places for dogs. Not only do you need to walk a dog often, but you need to play often to keep the bordom level down.Don't do that only at puppy stage, remember to keep this up with the adult dog. Keep him happy and he will keep you happy.
