Dog Breeds That Can't Swim

explore now

1) Pug

Due to the flatness of their features, these little, wrinkly-faced puppies are known to have difficulty breathing in water.

2) Corgis

Despite their athletic roots, when they were trained for herding in Wales, United Kingdom, corgis are not as powerful and athletic in water.

3) Dachshunds

When it comes to swimming, dachshunds have the same issues as corgis: large bodies and short legs.

4) Boxers

They can't swim, but if they stay in the water for too long, they'll have trouble breathing and keeping their heads above water.

5) Shih Tzu

Shih Tzus have small muzzles and short legs, making it difficult for them to keep their heads above water.

6) Basset hound

The basset hound was initially developed for hunting, but don't count on him to keep going if the trail takes him into some deep water.

7) Maltese

They won't be able to adjust to the chilly water on their own and will be grateful that you gave them the option to play on dry ground instead.

8) Bull terrier

Bull terriers are not natural swimmers; their deep chests and shorter legs make it more difficult for them to float.
