Irish Water Spaniel
Another dog that isn’t the prettiest to look at, the Irish Water Spaniel is known as a gun dog. They originated from Spain, according to historians, and are known to be good at both hunting and retrieving objects and people from the water. Their intelligence comes in the form of being so easily trained.
The St. Bernard is a massive breed of dog, which can be intimidating to some people. However, the working-class breed was originally raised for rescue operations. They are charming and highly cheerful, and have been known to detect a buried human 20-feet down in the snow.
