Best Mid-Sized Dog Breeds

Airedale Terrier

Airedales are called the "king of terriers." They weigh 55 pounds and stand 23 inches tall. Yorkshire poachers who pursued water rats and foxes had vicious, devoted Airedales.

In the mid-1800s, certain canines were crossed with Otterhounds to improve scent-gathering and hunting.


Since then, the Bulldog has become a sweet, stocky lapdog who enjoys lounging on the couch. They appear tough, but they're kind and playful with most people.

Australian Shepherd

The Australian Shepherd is smart, agile, and attractive. However, they naturally herd most living things—even kids!

The breed's work ethic is not for the lazy. This dog needs 60 minutes of daily exercise to release its restless energy, therefore you must be alert physically and psychologically.

German Shorthaired Pointer

The German Shorthaired Pointer (GSP) was bred for extensive fieldwork as a bird dog and hunter.

The 25-inch breed is recognized for its power, speed, agility, and endurance, therefore daily physical exercises like swimming or running are required.

Basset Hound

The short, stocky canine breed with sad eyes needs attention, but appearances can deceive. This type is a small powerhouse with great stamina.

They smell second only to the Bloodhound, bred for hunting. Bassetts love other dogs and playing with kids for hours.

While not as energetic as other medium-sized breeds, Bassets need regular exercise (a short walk will do) to maintain their weight and joints.
