All dogs are good, but some dogs are the best.
Using a unique and complex algorithm that we cannot disclose (just kidding, we picked 50 dogs from the American Kennel Club website, gave each a score out of 10, then argued with each other in the case of a tie), we have ranked 50 good dog breeds from fiftieth-best to first-best.
You may disagree with these rankings, and that's okay.

David Charles Hahn, who was nicknamed the “Radioactive Boy Scout,” received regular visits from the FBI for nearly a decade from 2005 through 2015, Ars has learned.
Hahn, who was profiled by Harper’s Magazine in 1998 for his attempts to build a homemade breeder nuclear reactor in his mother’s backyard shed, passed away late last year in Michigan at the age of 39.
Forget what you've heard — autism isn't something to cure. In fact, it's a condition we should embrace and celebrate.
About 1 in 68 people in the U. S. are autistic, meaning they communicate and experience the world in ways not typically expected. There isn't a "missing piece" to their cognitive puzzle.

During his days at MIT’s economics department, he was a teacher of teacher, lecturing to Ben Bernanke, the ex-Fed chairman, and Mario Draghi, the current European Central Bank president.
Still, like Draghi and Bernanke, both of whom have had stints in finance, Fischer is hardly a pure academic.
GettyFor real-time odds on the stock market's faith in President Donald Trump, look no further than recent weakness in industries most closely tied to his proposed policies: banks, builders, and retailers.
We're nearly 100 days into Trump's presidency, and the campaign promises of infrastructure spending, tighter restrictions on trade, and lower taxes have yet to materialize.
Additionally, Trump's first major legislative push, the American Health Care Act, failed to garner enough support among Republicans and was pulled from the House floor minutes before a vote.
The defeat on healthcare has led investors to worry that Trump's dealmaking may not be enough to advance his policies through Congress.
The market has not missed this lack of progress.
