10 Yellow Dog Breeds You’ll Want to Welcome Home ASAP

4 min read

Warm fur colours, sunny personalities and amazing companionship, there are so many things to adore about the yellow dog breeds. From fawn to tan and sand, these yellowish pooches can’t help but impress everyone with their gorgeous looks. We have put together a great list of 10 beloved yellow dogs to consider welcoming into your life.

10 Gorgeous Yellow dog breeds you'll instantly fall in love with

Golden Retriever 

Golden Retrievers come in so many beautiful hues, including cream, dark and light golden. If you are a fan of fawn or yellow dogs, this breed has some of the most gorgeous representatives. You’ll fall in love not just with the fur colour, but also with their warm personality, intelligence and gentle demeanour. Their heavy fur does need regular weekly brushing, especially because long walks in every season are one of the joys of having a Golden Retriever in your life.


The Goldendoodle is a cross between a Golden Retriever and a poodle, including the Standard Poodle or Miniature Poodle. This means the possible colours are some of the loveliest in the canine world. From light cream to golden shades and apricot hues, the Goldendoodle family has them all. Although it’s difficult to predict what kind of coat the Goldendoodle is going to have, chances are the lucky owners will have to set time aside for regular grooming. 


This bold, foxy-looking breed comes with furs in all sorts of colours, including fawn and tan. However, their glorious fur doesn’t need that much effort to remain lovely. The Corgi only needs to be brushed every now and then to remove loose or dead hair. But they do love their outdoor adventures and likely won’t be afraid to go out exploring even in mud or rain. So, have a brush ready to clean their fur when you come back.

French Bulldog

A French Bulldog is easy to recognise thanks to their diminutive stature, muscular build and flat face. Their lovely fur colours are part of the package too. Although you might not think of the French Bulldog as a yellow dog breed, their colours don’t stray too far from this warm hue. From light shades of cream to darker fawn furs, these little fellows wear them all so well. Affectionate and fun, the French Bulldog only requires minimal dog grooming.  


The Labrador Retriever is one of the most famous yellow dog breeds, so naturally, we had to include them on our list. Of course, there are also Labrador’s well-known black, red and chocolate hues to consider. But no matter the shade, these dogs are some of the best companions you can wish for. They’re friendly, happy and so keen to be part of any family activity you can think of. Plus, you don’t need to worry too much about keeping their fur clean and shiny. A brush-through once a week is usually enough, with a little extra grooming if they have access to water and mud to play in. 

Rhodesian Ridgeback

If you love golden or yellow dogs, the Rhodesian Ridgeback is such a gorgeous breed to consider. But it’s not just their fur colour turning heads on the daily walk. These majestic dogs are large, confident companions and extremely devoted to their owner. You shouldn’t worry too much about endless grooming sessions either. The Rhodesian Ridgeback is a low-maintenance dog breed. Brushing their coat with a rubber-grooming mitt once or twice a week is all they need.  


The fawn or sand Shar-Pei belongs on any yellow dog breeds list. These pooches are well known for their loose folds of skin and their 'frowning' expressions, so you will instantly recognise them. But don’t think that’s all there is to the mighty Shar-Pei. No matter the colour, these dogs are loyal, loving companions, although a bit on the aloof side sometimes. Their short coat only needs a going over with a soft brush, so you can reserve most of your time together for playing and cuddling! 


Dog lovers are in luck that gentle giants come in gorgeous fawn shades too. If you want to bring home a gorgeous yellow dog, look no further than the Bullmastiff. Their coat is not the bright hue we all think about, but rather a much lighter version closer to tan. But their looks are not just about the lovely fur colours. The Bullmastiff is a large, muscular dog. So, a big house and a securely fenced garden are must-haves for owners. Luckily, their coat is low-maintenance, therefore a grooming mitt is all that is required. 

Chow Chow

The instantly recognisable Chow Chow is more known for their bear-like looks than their beautiful fur colour, but if you can’t resist a yellowish dog, you will want to keep an eye out for these big fellows. Their cinnamon and cream varieties are some of the most stunning shades you’ll see.

Although they’re not always an easy companion to handle for first-time dog owners, this breed is intelligent, independent and fiercely loyal. If you don’t mind their somewhat reserved nature, this might be the dog for you.


The orange Pomeranians are some of the most beautiful companions out there. When it comes to these amazing pets, their looks match their lively personality so nicely, you’ll think it happened on purpose. They are active, energetic little dogs, full of affection and enthusiasm for life. What they ask in return is plenty of cuddles and daily grooming.

When choosing a dog breed, as well as gorgeous looks, remember to consider any breed-related health issues they may have. It is also important to consider factors such as temperament and choose a breed that fits with your lifestyle.
