The first thing that comes to my mind when I hear the words “white dog breeds” is the picture of a fluffy, cloud-like fur ball. One thing is for sure – even if they are small, big, fluffy, or not, they do stand out.

There is indeed something magical and beautiful about them. White color has always been connected to purity, innocence, and goodness in general, so it is expected that white dogs will have these qualities as well.

There are plenty of dogs that sport a stunning white coat, and if you are interested in finding out what some of those dog breeds are, don’t miss our guide and opportunity to meet all those magical and pure floofs!

The Ultimate Guide To All White Dog Breeds

If you are looking for a white pup, but you can’t decide exactly which one to choose since it is difficult to find important information about all of them in one place, the good news is that we have gathered everything you need to know about all the white dog breeds.

We have divided them into two groups — small and big dog breeds — to make it easier for you to navigate this guide. Check out what we have prepared for you, and be careful of a certain white pooch stealing your heart…

Small White Dog Breeds

They might be small, but they are mighty. And, oh… absolutely adorable:

1. Bichon Frise

Bichon Frise dog

This is probably one of the fluffy white dogs that pop up in your mind first when you think about white dogs. These are one of the most charming little dogs that are, for many, their first choice when choosing a family pet.

If you are looking for a dog with a personality, this is definitely the one for you. One thing that makes them stand out besides their beautiful, fluffy white coat is their lively, charming, and at times, comical personality.

2. Maltese

Continuing with fluffy coats, let’s meet the Maltese dog. If you haven’t heard of them, then you have been living under a rock, literally! According to many historians, this breed has been around for thousands of years.

These adorable dogs are one of the smallest dog breeds that have a long, fluffy coat. Besides their fluffy white coat, they are also quite known for their elegant and radiant appearance.

They make great companion dogs, and are famous for being the cutest lap dogs. Also, you’ll see a lot of them competing at dog shows.

3. Coton de Tulear

Another of the smallest dog breeds, but definitely the only one that originates from Madagascar. Yes, the island in Africa that everyone has heard of because of the franchise of the same name.

These dogs have become really popular among the royalty and the rich, and are often called “Royal Dogs of Madagascar”. Not only do they look like royalty, but they also behave accordingly.

Their most important characteristics are a fluffy white coat, carefree and cheerful personalities, low-maintenance, few health problems, good companionship, and excellent behavior towards children.

4. West Highland White Terrier

Not exactly one of the fluffiest dogs out there, but still equally adorable, the West Highland White Terrier, or, for short, the “Westie” is one of the most popular Terrier breeds and one of the few dogs that come only in white.

Their coat is a little bit rough compared to the ones we mentioned before. It is also longer and double-coated. Given the fact that they were initially bred to be rodent hunters, they are high-energy and lively dogs that love to chase something. Your house will be free of unwanted animals.

Even though they are playful little dogs, they still make good family dogs, but mostly for those with older children.

5. Bolognese

We can’t get over the cuteness, and we have just started. If you can’t tell by the name, these fluffy dogs come from a city in Italy called Bologna. They have pretty long white fur that requires a lot of grooming to keep the hair from matting and getting dirty.

They are known for their calm and easy-going nature, and are hopelessly devoted and obedient. However, mostly because of that, they are prone to developing separation anxiety, which is why it is important to train and provide them with proper early socialization.

6. Havanese

Another city-named floof — the Havanese dog comes from Cuba, and is named after the capital, Havana. It is the only dog to originate from this place. These dogs have become really popular recently, and there is a good reason why.

They are known for their extremely friendly demeanor, charm, and easiness when it comes to getting along with pretty much everyone. Not only are they one of the fluffiest small dog breeds, but they also have everything a dog owner can wish for.

They usually come in white, but it is also possible for them to be solid black.

7. Pomeranian

A true fluff ball at its finest. Although they are hard to find only in white, they do exist, and a white Pomeranian is truly a magical sight.

They are best known for their bright and intelligent nature, which makes them one of the best family dogs since they are able to adapt really well to any situation.

They are really playful, friendly, and sociable.

If you are set on getting a little Pom-Pom, you must be prepared for a lot of shedding and regular visits to the groomer. But, it is all worth it when you get to enjoy this extremely cute and charming doggie.

8. Poodle

Poodles are one of the most well-known dogs out there, not only because of their extremely fluffy, curly coat (although it is the feature that makes them absolutely adorable), but also for being really intelligent dogs. Some might even say iconic.

Whether they come as toy, miniature, or standard-sized, you can be assured that each of them is going to have the same poofy, white coat. Poodles are also said to be non-shedding, or at least rarely-shedding dogs, so they are a great solution if you are looking for a hypoallergenic dog.

9. American Eskimo Dog

When I hear Eskimo, I immediately think of snow, whiteness, and pure bliss. Well, this can also perfectly describe this fluff boy. Not only are they beautiful and white, but they are also very clever dogs that will surprise you with their intelligence.

However, this fluffiness does come with a price — heavy shedding. You will have to get used to seeing a lot of hair around, and taking care of it.

In spite of that, these dogs are also really affectionate, cheerful, and alert. Sometimes, they can be aloof with strangers, but they generally enjoy spending time with humans.

10. French Bulldog

If you look at the AKC list of the most popular dogs in America, you will definitely see a French Bulldog among the ones with the highest popularity rate. That is no surprise at all since these pups have a lot to offer.

Although they can come in a variety of colors, white is definitely among the most stunning ones. Their coat is short and smooth, which means that they are a bit more low-maintenance dogs compared to the ones above.

They make excellent family dogs with their loyal and stable temperament. Intelligence and getting along well with children is a major plus.

11. Puli

If you also thought of mops while seeing this picture, believe me – you are not alone. These dogs have a unique and very different coat type than most of the dogs that we will mention here.

They are called “mop dogs” because their fur comes in the shape of dreadlocks, giving them a very distinct look. Although they look a little bit funny, they are completely different when it comes to their personality.

Pulis are extremely devoted, intelligent, and agile dogs that may even surprise you with their strength. They have great herding skills, and also make good watchdogs. Additionally, they are semi-hypoallergenic dogs since they do not shed.

12. Chihuahua

You can’t believe that it is possible to store so much personality into such a small body, but Chihuahuas are the perfect example of that. Chihuahuas are one of the smallest dogs, often called “purse dogs”, that have a very entertaining and stubborn temperament.

These dogs can come in a variety of colors; however, a pure white Chihuahua is rare to find, so if you find a breeder offering them, consider yourself lucky. They can either have a short and smooth coat or a long coat.

If you want this breed, prepare for a quick, lively, and courageous little character that will need a lot of attention.

13. Chinese Crested Dog

The Chinese Crested dog is yet another very small dog that combines a playful and loving nature, making him a great companion and lap dog.

These dogs are rarely pure white; however, it is not impossible. They can come in two different types: with and without hair. The “powderpuff” has long and soft fur, while the “hairless” Chinese Crested dog actually has hair only around the face, feet, ears, and tail.

They are low shedders, and therefore, they can be a good choice for people who are allergic or don’t like too much hair in their home.

14. Miniature Bull Terrier

Miniature Bull Terriers have a distinct, stocky and muscular body shape, with the trademark Bull Terrier egghead, strong jaws, and naturally erect ears.

They are short-haired dogs with flat and smooth fur, and they can come in solid white or white with any other color. They are naturally low-maintenance dogs.

When it comes to personality, they are best described as playful, lively, and comical dogs that will provide you with lots of entertainment at the house.

They are great guard dogs with high-energy levels, so they do require a lot of exercise and proper training in order to be well-behaved pets.

15. Japanese Spitz

Did you start to miss fluffy boys? We sure did! So, here’s another one of the fluffy white dogs. They kind of resemble Pomeranians, which are actually their close cousins.

Japanese Spitz dogs are very playful, high-spirited, and energetic pups that will always find ways to make you smile. However, they are a bit high-maintenance dogs since they require a significant amount of physical activity and grooming.

Other than that, they are really sweet dogs that get along well with children, and are pretty intelligent, which means that they will be easy to train and pick up new tricks.

16. Jack Russell Terrier

Jack Russell Terrier

Even though it is not common for Jack Russells to be completely white, it can happen sometimes. Usually, most of the puppies are born white, but as they grow up, they develop different colored markings on their head.

They can have three different coat types: smooth, rough, or one called broken, which basically means the combination of the other two types. No matter which coat type your pup has, most likely they will shed a lot.

However, one thing is certain – Jack Russells are always extremely energetic dogs that enjoy running around to blow off some extra energy they have stored up. Oh, and one more thing – digging holes is almost their trademark!

17. Sealyham Terrier

One more dog that belongs to the Terrier group of dog breeds, the Sealyham Terrier is quite a rare breed of dog that originated in Wales. They were bred to be working dogs – more precisely, otter hunting dogs.

These pups are all-white dogs that have a double coat; the top one being somehow wiry and coarse, and the undercoat quite dense and smooth. Some of them can also have different colored markings on some parts of their body, but most of the time, they are solid white.

They are usually calm and friendly, but they can also be alert towards strangers.

18. Cavachon

As the mix of two adorable breeds: the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, and the Bichon Frise, Cavachons are guaranteed to be extremely cute dogs. If you could use just one word to describe this breed, it would be happy.

They have a charming and loving personality, and they are usually friendly toward everyone, but one thing that they absolutely adore is attention and cuddle time with their people.

Their coat can be best described as soft and wavy; however, this depends as each puppy can be a little bit different due to which gene of the parent breeds is more dominant.

19. Pekingese

I am sure that you have heard about the Pekingese since it is quite a popular dog. Another one with a dog name that refers to the city they originated from – in this case, Peking (Beijing), China.

This is one of the dogs that have an aristocratic background since they were royal dogs for many years. And, still to this day, you can clearly see that they have once been royalty. Bred to be companion dogs, they will be exactly that – affectionate dogs that offer you their unconditional love.

They have a double coat, with long and straight hair. You can find white Pekingese, but they also can come in various other colors.

20. Cotonese

The Cotonese is a designer dog breed obtained by crossbreeding a Maltese and a Coton De Tulear. This is a small, white dog with usually a long and curly coat. Their fur is dense, but also very soft, giving them a fluffy, cute look.

Not only are they adorable, but also very affectionate and cheerful animals. They love to be around people, and are very eager to please. A big bonus is that they are intelligent and easy to train.

Additionally, they can be highly protective of their family, especially children, which is why they make great family pets.

21. Lhasa Apso

The Lhasa Apso is a dog breed that is very famous because of its coat. Even if the name of this breed is not familiar to you, I’m sure that you have seen their picture somewhere.

These are really old dogs (two thousand years old!) whose roots go back to the palaces and monasteries located deep in the Himalayas. However, their appearance is what catches the eyes of many.

They are definitely elegant and exotic-looking pups, with their floor-length, flat coat, which looks majestic, especially in white color. Although small, they are great watchdogs, and that is exactly what they have been for centuries.

22. Bedlington Terrier

And… the last on our list of small white dogs, before we pass on to big ones, is the Bedlington Terrier. They are quite different-looking dogs as they don’t have any breed that looks similar to them, making them unique.

They have thick, curly fur that somehow sticks up from their body, and it is a mixture of soft and harsh hair. Tasseled ears and a pear-shaped head contribute enormously to their attractive appearance.

These elegant-looking dogs are great watchdogs and sport dogs, but most importantly, their wonderful temperament and loving nature make them great companion dogs and overall good family pets.

Big White Dog Breeds

Now that we have mentioned all of the small white dogs, let’s move on to the big boys… No matter how big they get, they can still be our babies!

23. Samoyed

Samoyed laying outdoor

Let’s start the big boy list with a bang… I mean, with one of the fluffiest and sweetest pooches that exist in the canine world. Just by looking at the Samoyed, you can’t help but smile.

Not only are they one big, white, fluffball that you just want to cuddle, but they are also extremely friendly and happy pups – a combination that steals many hearts.

Samoyeds have a thick, double coat that comes in pure white. This kind of coat was essential because these dogs originated in Siberia, and therefore, needed to survive the colder climate.

Related: Samoyed Colors & All About That Cloud-Like Coat

They were used by the Siberian people to pull sleds, herd reindeer, or hunt, so it makes sense why they are, to this day, great working dogs with a lot of energy.

24. The Great Pyrenees

Great Pyrenees sitting on the grass

If you are looking for a large dog that will, at the same time, be an awesome companion dog and family dog, you definitely won’t make a mistake if you choose the Great Pyrenees – a breed of dog that originates from the French side of the Pyrenees Mountains.

Even though they are big and powerful pups, they still have a soft heart, a friendly nature, and an even better connection with children. They have a thick coat, which is, of course, white-colored.

Since they were originally bred to be livestock guardians, they definitely have great protective genes in their blood. This makes them great guard dogs that will protect their family no matter what.

25. Dogo Argentino

Female Dogo Argentino in wood

Dogo Argentino is a massive breed of dog that was developed in Argentina, as their name already suggests. These are muscular dogs with a large head, and they were developed primarily for big-game hunting.

The best characteristics of this breed include:

• a smooth, white coat

• great athletic abilities

• power and strength

• bravery and courage

But, don’t worry – even though they are powerful dogs that might also seem dangerous, that is far from true. In fact, they are cheerful, friendly, and affectionate pups.

26. Komondor

Komondor dog

This is another one of the big and powerful dogs whose main purpose was to guard livestock, but this time, coming from Hungary. Komondors were true farm dogs that lived and worked on Hungarian farms.

Do you remember the Puli dog that we mentioned earlier? There is one thing that these two dogs have in common. It is their interesting and unique coat type, which is quite similar, but also a bit different.

While the hair of the Puli looks more like dreadlocks, the Komondor’s hair is like long, white cords. They are sometimes called “mop dogs” as well because of their unique coat type.

Other than that, they are quite independent, fearless, and sometimes even a bit stubborn, which can make them difficult to train.

27. Kuvasz

Let’s stay a little bit more in Hungary and meet another one of the Hungarian working dogs, known also as royal guard dogs. Kuvaszs (pronounced Koo- vazz) are very large and very majestic-looking dogs.

They have a thick double coat that has solid white hair (important fact — extremely fluffy!), which sheds a lot, so regular brushing is kind of necessary.

But, there is also one more quite interesting and fun fact regarding these dogs’ coats. A Kuvasz’s hair is odor-free, and it is supposed to repel water and dirt, which is great seeing that they are pure white. This helps them stay just like that.

28. Akbash Dog

If we travel to the Middle East, more precisely, Turkey, we can meet one more white dog breed the — Akbash, which, in Turkish, means “white head”. They are considered to be ancient dogs, even though there is not much known about their origin.

These are massive and powerful dogs that were bred to be guard dogs, so they are very alert and loyal pups whose sole purpose is to make sure that everyone is safe and sound. But, if you ask me, I think that their best feature is their extremely fluffy coat, which is impossible to resist.

Unfortunately, Akbash dogs are very rare to find, even in Turkey. They are not recognized by the American Kennel Club, but they are by the United Kennel Club.

29. Siberian Husky

If you asked me how to best describe the Siberian Husky, I would say — extremely vocal, a bit mischievous and stubborn, and fluffy. They have a dense, thick coat, with colors that can range from black and white, gray or silver, to pure white.

Huskies are known as dogs that shed a lot, so you’ll have to be prepared for that.

Before getting a Husky puppy, you must know that as they are very active dogs, they require lots of exercise and training, so perhaps they would be more suited for experienced owners.

Don’t get me wrong – they are not bad dogs at all; just a little bit more challenging, but their stunning appearance definitely makes up for that. And, a Husky’s eyes — simply breathtaking!

30. Borzoi

Borzois are one of the fastest dogs in the world, with a speed of 40 miles per hour, which is really fascinating, isn’t it? They are also known as Russian Sighthound dogs that were used for hunting wolves.

You must think that they are really energetic dogs, which is kind of true. Although they are athletic and powerful dogs, they still have a pretty calm personality.

Borzois are long-haired dogs with a very soft coat – a look that is often compared to the Greyhound. That silky coat can either be straight, curly, or wavy, and in many different colors, but white is the most common one.

31. Afghan Hound

This is another one of the beautiful, long-haired dogs. They, too, have a distinctive-looking fine, silky coat. Of course, this type of coat requires proper grooming and regular brushing, but if done correctly, these pups should look spectacular.

Afghans are also really old dogs that originate from the cold mountains of Afghanistan. They are also quite famous because of their “aristocratic” personality, which can be best described as independent, dignified, and reserved.

Sometimes, they might seem like they are too much and too difficult to train, but with a little bit of patience, there shouldn’t be a problem.

32. Clumber Spaniel

The biggest one of the spaniels, the Clumber Spaniel is predominantly a white dog. They usually have a white coat, which sometimes can have orange or lemon markings. Due to their long, dense hair, you can expect your Clumber Spaniel to shed a lot.

Although they were bred to be hunting dogs, they are actually quite docile, gentle, and easy-going, so as family dogs, they should be loyal, affectionate, and overall great companions. They are also great for apartment living since they don’t have a tendency to bark at all.

33. Polish Tatra Sheepdog

Even though these stunning animals have been originally used as guard dogs for livestock, they are actually really calm and friendly.

However, this doesn’t mean that they are bad at their job… on the contrary – they are excellent at protection simply by using more advanced and intelligent ways of how to do it, which rarely involves aggression.

These Sheepdogs are one of the white dog breeds that specifically come in all white. With a fluffy, beautiful coat and a bear-like head, they are a really adorable sight to see.

34. Maremma Sheepdog

Coming from the Maremma and Abruzzo region in Italy, these fluffy white dogs are most common in their native country, and therefore, they are extremely hard to find outside its borders.

Maremma Sheepdogs are one of the best guard dogs that exist. These gentle giants can also be good family dogs if you have the patience and will to train them properly. They are very intelligent and loyal, but they require a firm owner who will be able to provide them with proper guidance.

35. Slovensky Cuvac

If you can’t guess by the name, this dog breed originates from Slovakia, where they were used to guard livestock. Many consider this breed as one of the most loyal dogs that exist.

Considering that they are really large and powerful dogs, they definitely do amazing things when it comes to the protection of those who they love. They will do anything to protect their territory, humans, or other animals.

The Slovensky Cuvac, unlike other breeds, is bred only in one color — magical white. Their coat is fluffy and thick, which helped them survive the harsh, cold climate.

36. East Siberian Laika

When you hear Siberia, you certainly think of the Husky that is probably the most well-known; however, there are other dogs that also originate from this Russian region.

East Siberian Laikas, for example, are definitely beautiful dogs, especially when they come in white. Just like Huskies, they are great working dogs with a lot of energy. With high amounts of energy come a protective, and even sometimes aggressive nature.

They are known to be overly territorial dogs that will do anything to protect what is theirs, so, of course, proper training is a must.

37. Kishu Ken

Kishu Ken dog

The Kishu Ken is an excellent hunting and guard dog that comes from the Kishu region in Japan. Like most hunting dogs, this breed also has a very high prey drive, which is normal. However, that means that they will not do well with the smaller pets or children.

They are active and loyal dogs that are incredibly adorable looking. A fluffy white coat, compiled with a sweet expression, erect ears, and a curled tail is a recipe for falling in love.

With this breed, white color is actually more prevalent and higher in demand compared to many others. One interesting fun fact about Kishu Kens is that they usually choose their favorite person who gets all their attention and love.

38. White American Shepherd

If you want a German Shepherd dressed in white, then the White American Shepherd is the breed for you. They are essentially German Shepherds with the same qualities, except for their color.

Recommended: White German Shepherds: Your Best Guide To A Unique Canine

They have only been recently recognized as a breed by the United Kennel Club, but before that, they had long existed in Europe. However, now they are banned in Germany – their native home.

Regarding their personality, of course, they will be awesome working dogs that are great at protecting and herding. But, when it comes to shedding, I can only advise you to get a really good vacuum since that is the only thing that can help you with lots of hair that you can expect.

39. Rajapalayam Dog

The Rajapalayam Dog is one of the few Indian dog breeds, and definitely the only one on our list. Unfortunately, these dogs are really rare, and are on the verge of extinction.

Some of their most important characteristics are a milky white coat, excellent guarding instincts, good health, and great ability to endure hot climate.

Don’t let their short hair fool you. Sadly, I must inform you that they shed a lot, and require constant grooming. However, I am sure that if you truly love these dogs, this will not be a problem.

40. Shar Pei

Although a white Shar Pei is not a common sight, it is certainly an eye-catching one. Shar Peis can come in a variety of colors, along with white ones, even though they are considered rare. However, most of the people agree that the color would be best described as a cream tone.

Shar Pei dogs can have three different types of coat:

• The horse coat – short and rough hair

• The brush coat – long and smooth hair

The bear coat – long, soft, and fluffy hair (which resembles their ancestors – Chow Chows)

41. Yakutian Laika

This beautiful-looking dog is actually an ancient one that is originally from the Sakha (Yakutia) Republic. Laikas are really multi-purpose dogs that have been used for many jobs, especially in really hard weather conditions in which you cannot make any mistake; otherwise, possible death would follow.

Since they have always been very hard-working animals, their families respected them and treated them more like actual members rather than just pets. Due to this kind of upbringing, these dogs developed into being gentle, kind, and devoted family companions that are great with children.

Stunning looks, amazing work abilities, and a desirable temperament are just some of the many qualities that you will definitely encounter if you choose this breed, but unfortunately, they are hard to find, especially in America.

42. Ukrainian Shepherd Dog

Ukrainian Shepherd Dog

Photo from: @aristella.ua

The Ukrainian Shepherd Dog (or the South Russian Ovcharka) is a dog with an antique origin that has not yet been completely resolved or shed light upon, but for sure, they are Ukrainian/Russian natives that were used as guard dogs in Russian steppes.

There are some myths circulating around, saying that these dogs were created by crossbreeding local long-haired dogs with Merino sheep; however, that has not yet been proven.

They are quite large dogs, with a lot of hair. A long, thick, double coat is definitely the first thing you notice when looking at these pups. Other than that, they are usually very lively, courageous, and active dogs.

43. Alaskan Malamute

Alaskan Malamute dog

These are absolutely adorable puppies that rarely come in white color. Many breeders were actually quite surprised when they encountered a white Alaskan Malamute dog. But, all this just adds to their special and beautiful appearance.

Due to their spitz breed features and fluffy double coat, especially when puppies, they somehow resemble polar bears, and let’s be real – who doesn’t want a polar bear lookalike as a pet?

However, due to their wooly coat, they are not exactly suitable for hot climates, and they will require a bit of time and work to keep them as good-looking and graceful as they are.

44. Hokkaido

This beautiful spitz-type dog comes from an island in Japan that has the same name as the pup, Hokkaido. Their stunning white coat is double-coated, with a fine, thick undercoat and a rough and dense top layer, which, as you can imagine, sheds regularly.

Hokkaidos are incredibly intelligent pups with great problem-solving skills. They can be great companions as well, but they require a bit of early socialization and training.

However, outside of Japan, it is extremely hard to find these pups because they are very rare. So, I guess if you would like to have one of these doggies, you will need to find the right breeder or perhaps visit amazing Japan.

45. American Bulldog

These large, muscular dogs that often come in the white edition have their coat usually described as being white as snow, or platinum. American Bulldogs are great working dogs that can be extremely versatile.

However, these pups can also be loving and affectionate companion dogs. The truth is that they need a bit of training and a lot of exercise, but if everything is done correctly, I am confident that these dogs can be the perfect family dog for you.

46. American Pitbull Terrier

Pitbulls have always been the center of attention, and the reason for division and different opinions among dog lovers. When you add a white Pitbull to that mix, the controversy increases.

White Pitbulls are extremely rare. Some even consider this coat color to be related to many health issues that can be connected to albinism. While many admire the beautiful appearance of these pups, others question or judge it.

However, one thing is definitely not questionable, and that is their sweet personality, which can always be found no matter the color.

47. Saluki

Are you searching for a dog that is a bit different looking than others? Look no more because the Saluki dog is one of them. This is a beautiful sprinter that has been stealing hearts for thousands of years.

Salukis have a very exotic appearance: slim, but yet muscular dogs that have long legs, a kind of triangle-shaped head, and a short and silky coat, but with feathering around the tail, ears, and the back of the thighs.

These aloof sighthounds are usually highly devoted to their family – so much that they often suffer from separation anxiety if left alone for longer periods. This, in combination with a very shy personality, demands proper early socialization.

48. Labrador Retriever

Next to the Golden Retriever, Labrador Retrievers are definitely one of the most popular dogs among family pets. White Labradors are usually considered to be under the category of yellow Labs, which just have a really pale coat color.

They have the same features as normal Labs, such as temperament or other physical characteristics. Just like other colored Labs, the white ones shed a lot because of their double coat, especially in spring and fall.

So, while enjoying the presence of a lovely, gentle, and intelligent dog, you’ll have to learn to live with a lot of hair around the house.

49. Chow Chow

Do you love teddy bears? If your answer is yes, I have the best dog for you!

Meet the Chow Chow. And… not just any, but a white Chow Chow. These pups are best known for their extremely dense, double coat. Just look at that picture. Don’t they seem like the fluffiest cloud that you just can’t wait to cuddle?

Unfortunately, pure white Chows are very rare and hard to find. This is because they carry a certain gene that is responsible for a lack of melanin production, which is then connected to certain health issues.

50. Finnish Lapphund

A long, fluffy coat is just one of the great characteristics of this breed that comes from Lapland, Finland. Even though they can come in a variety of colors, we can all agree that there is something special about white.

These pups were originally used to herd reindeer, so as you can imagine, their herding instincts make them very active dogs that require lots of exercise. But, other than that, Lappies are affectionate dogs that love humans, and are also really good with children.

If you don’t mind a lot of hair around, especially during shedding season, you should definitely check out this pup.

51. Boxer

White coat color in the Boxer breed is not at all rare, but somehow these pups got that kind of reputation. As with any different colored Boxer, their coat sports short and sleek hair that is really easy to maintain since they don’t shed that much.

Regarding personality, they should be a good choice for a family dog since they get along well with children, and overall, have a pretty good temperament. Their best qualities are friendliness, playfulness, and protectiveness.

However, due to their independence and a bit of a stubborn nature, they can prove to be a little bit difficult to train. Patience is the key, though!

52. Border Collie

Do you know which breed is considered to be the smartest dog in the canine world? It’s the Border Collie, so if you are looking for an incredibly smart pup that will be easy to train and quickly learn new tricks, this is the right choice for you.

However, when it comes to white-colored Border Collies, you must know that they are extremely rare. Most Collies are black with white markings or red with white markings, but they can also be tricolor.

A solid white Border Collie means that these pups suffer from a condition called Albinism, and will, unfortunately, likely have a lot of health problems.

To Sum It Up

Although color is not and should not be the most important factor when choosing a new puppy, we can’t help ourselves but think that there is something really magical about these white dog breeds.

Maybe it has something to do with the connotations that this color usually has, such as innocence, purity, and sweetness as to why we immediately connect to these dogs.

No matter what the reason actually is, the truth is that they are incredibly beautiful looking with usually very great characteristics that everyone could wish for.

While writing this, I have fallen in love with many of these breeds, and there is no doubt that you will also find the perfect match for you and your family.

We have tried to find and include all dog breeds that fall under the category of white dog breeds. Either small, medium, or big-sized; short-haired, long-haired, or fluffy – there is a dog for everyone. Which one did you like the best?
