The 10 Most Elegant Dog Breeds

1 – Afghan Hound
Afghan Hounds are considered by many to be one of the most elegant breeds. Having the tall, lengthy build of the sighthounds but the long, beautiful coat of the setters creates a dog that appears to float while walking.


2 – Doberman
Dobermans sport a deep chest and a shiny coat, along with swift, graceful movement that makes them one of the most beautiful working breeds around.

3 – Great Dane
The size of these dogs is perhaps what makes them so elegant. It’s difficult to imagine such a large animal having beautiful movement, but the Great Dane shows that it can be done.

4 – Greyhound
Greyhounds were built to be elegant. These sighthounds are some of the fastest dogs around, but they maintain their beauty even through the work.

5 – Irish Setter
The deep red of the Irish Setter with his long, flowing coat make him an absolutely stunning breed, and his graceful movement only amplifies his looks.

6 – Pharaoh Hound
This ancient sighthound maintains the elegance that the rest of the breeds in the group do, standing tall with their large ears and red coat.

7 – Rhodesian Ridgeback
These gorgeous dogs are powerful while still maintaining a certain grace. The ridge on their backs adds to their unique beauty.

8 – Saluki
Salukis have the stature of the Greyhound with a soft, wispy coat that only accents their beauty. Just like the other sighthounds, Salukis are fast but graceful.

9 – Shih Tzu
These little dogs may not always look so elegant, but with their coats grown out and brushed they seem to float across the floor. Watching them makes it no surprise that this breed was the favorite of ancient Chinese royals.

10 – Weimaraner
The Weimaraner is a strong, sturdy breed with a steel blue coat that shines. His looks are emphasized by his graceful movement, making him one of the most wonderful breeds to watch.
