A new study looked at thousands of Instagram posts and ranked the naughtiest and best-behaved dog breeds.
While searching through Instagram, the researchers were looking for posts where people complained about their misbehaving dogs or bragged about what a good dog they were. The results showed a clear winner in both categories.
According to the study, the Japanese Spitz is the worst-behaved dog overall. This breed is a relatively small dog, about 10 to 25 pounds, with pointy ears and bright white fur. However, 87% of Instagram posts about this breed had to do with bad behavior.
The rest of the five naughtiest breeds are the Wirehaired Vizsla, Chugs (Chihuahua/Pug mix), Shichons (Shih Tzu/Bichon Frise mix), and Poochons (Bichon Frise/Toy Poodle mix). Welsh Terriers and Springer Spaniels also made the naughty list.
The Korean Jindos grabbed the top spot for the best-behaved dog breed, with 76% of Instagram posts about them being positive.
As for the rest of the five best-behaved breeds, Rhodesian Ridgebacks, Portuguese Water Dogs, Rat Terriers, and Miniature Pinschers also made the nice list.
Finally, the study looked at the U.S. states where people complained the most about their dogs. The states with the naughtiest dogs are Kansas, North Carolina, and South Dakota. The states that complain the least are Maryland, Maine, and Indiana.
