Missouri Best Breeds for Warm Weather

The three most popular dog breeds in Missouri are Labradors, German Shepherds, and French Bulldogs. Other popular Missouri dog breeds are Australian Cattle Dogs and Cavalier King Charles Spaniels.

The relaxed and laidback lifestyle and the tranquil, slow-paced life in Missouri makes it a great place to raise a dog. But given the subtropical hot and humid weather, dog owners in Missouri should choose the breed carefully to ensure they bring home a climate-friendly pooch.

Here are some characteristics that can help a dog remain comfortable in Missouri’s warm weather.

  • Warm weather roots (where the breed originated)
  • Short coat and single coat
  • Light colored fur
  • Long nose
  • Big ears
  • Lanky or leggy built

Now, here are some breeds that fit the bill and are some of the best dogs for Missouri.

Dalmatians in Missouri: Dalmatians have a short coat, a long nose, big ears, and a lanky built, which makes them a great choice of dog breed for Missouri families. These dogs have good warm weather tolerance. However, you should keep in mind that Dalmatians are a high-energy breed and they need lots of daily exercise to stay healthy.

Dobermans in Missouri: You would think that the dark coloration of Dobermans means they are not ideal for Missouri’s warm weather, but these imposing looking dogs have short coats, long muzzles, big ears, and a leggy built, which means they do in fact stay pretty comfortable in warmer weather. If you are looking for Doberman puppies for sale in Missouri, make sure you choose a reputable breeder (check listings on Puppy Hero). This breed is susceptible to certain health concerns. A good breeder will test the parents for the most common health problems in Dobermans so that you take only the healthiest Doberman puppy home.

Vizslas in Missouri: The Vizsla is another breed that is well-suited to Missouri’s warm climate, given its short coat and big ears. Although they originated in Hungary which has a temperate climate, Vizslas adapt well to warmer climates. Vizslas are a great choice for Missouri families on account of their smiling faces, high intelligence, and easy trainability.
