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.

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.
