Discover the Top 20 Cutest Dog Breeds in the World by Science

Ranking Cutest Dog Breeds in the World? You might as well rank the beauty of flowers. Yet a study has claimed to find a pattern which suggests which are the best-looking dogs in the world. Toby Keel takes a look.

Sometimes, studies and research are clearly done with the idea of furthering the knowledge of mankind. But just as every builder can’t create Buckingham Palace, so too everyone with access to a computer and a copy of Excel can’t be expected to unlock the secrets of the universe.

So it was with tongue firmly in cheek, we imagine, that pet insurance comparison website moneybeach.co.uk put together its report to decide which types of dog are the most beautiful to the human eye. They used as their basis the Golden Ratio, a well-respected theory in art and design which dates back to the Classical world, and which draws heavily on patterns observed in Nature.

A picture of each dog breed — 100 were considered in all — was then rated to see how closely its features adhered to the ratio.

The results are… well, surprising. Seeing the rottweiler in 8th place, seven places above the cavapoo.

But let’s face it: the whole thing is utter nonsense, and simply a bit of fun, presumably designed to get rival owners’ chins wagging as fast as their pets’ tails.
