Are Some Dog Breeds Greedier Than Others?

By on September 9, 2013

Ask a cross section of dog owners to name what they consider to be the greediest dog breed and you often get back the same answer.
"Why, it's Labradors of course."

But is it?

K9 Magazine decided to conduct a short straw poll of dog owners and asked them to rank their dog on the greedy-guts scale, 10 being a food-hoover and 1 being a picky-Pete.

To Ryan O’Meara, the results were surprising, and we discover that greediness is not so much breed specific, but another factor is at the heart of why some dogs happen to have a seemingly insatiable appetite.

    Yes definitely it is. I have a yellow lab an its amazingly greedy. I challenge for ₹500 that my dog is the greediest among all. J
    He will bark whole day if the food is front him and she is tied.
    And if tested he will eat 1 pound of rice in only 8 sec I have tested.
    And if I wont give him any food he will die of barking.
    If u have a more greedy dog then I will challenge you
