#15 Rhodesian Ridgeback
“African Lion Dogs” get top marks for their even tempers, athleticism and affectionate natures. Hair growing in the opposite direction is what forms the trademark ridge along the spine. These dogs were originally bred to hunt lions, so you can imagine it is not a good idea at all to keep them in an apartment. Regardless of their history these dogs are extremely family-friendly once they are properly trained, which might be tough.
