Afghan Hound. This breed is certainly distinguished. Afghans are known to have unique personalities and exhibit an aloof nature, much like their feline counterparts.
Basenji. Energetic but shy, Basenjis are one of the most cat-like dogs. They often attach themselves to one human and feel shy around strangers! Sound familiar?

Finnish Spitz. Another cat-imitating breed, the Finnish Spitz, is known to be cautious around strangers. They're also enthusiastic barkers, and even though they might be aloof like cats, they still bark at 'em.
Japanese Chin. The playful disposition and unwavering loyalty make the Japanese Chin a force of love. However, they can be reserved in new locations and even give off a lukewarm reception to new people.
Manchester Terrier. This small fry isn't afraid to chase a mouse out of the house. Manchester Terriers are fiercely bonded to their owners, happily spending all day in their laps.
