So called "intelligence test" are a little confusing to people new to purebred dogs. Some people put trainability and intelligence in the same hand but in reality they are totally different things. All of the breeds on the "Dumb" list are dogs who were bred to think for them selves and not depend on their master for instructions.

Shih tzus arent the most intelligent dog on the planet, but they arent too bad. Sweet licky little buggers. I use to own/breed them.

I dont agree with the intelligence test up neither. :confused:
