Default Low-Energy Breeds

I know, I know, "low energy" and "dog" are antonyms of eachother, but still. Just wondering if anyone knows any low-energy breeds (that aren't toys)? From what I've read and heard about greyhounds, and from my talks with grey owners, they are low-key in the house, but outside they tend to rev up. Otherwise, this is the only breed I've ever heard of with relatively low energy levels.

Yup Greyhounds are awesome couch potatoes provided they recieve enough excercise. Another ""lazy"" breed is the English Bulldog.

Yes, not ALL of them are lazy, but I bet it isn't hard to find a lazy one

Neapolitan Mastiffs are low energy too. I think most Mastiffs tend to be. I always thought Bullmastiffs were quite high energy though? I'm probably wrong about that, I've not had much to do with them.

Try reading up on a Clumber Spanial. I've really enjoyed working with them over the years and they have lovely temperaments.

Well, she is a toy but my Pap Pom mix is delightfully lazy. Sometimes it gets to me like this morning when I am up early for work (and it is cold and raining) and she gives me the one eye open and grunt snores back into the duck down duvet!!! Grrrr!

When I've asked that question, that is the most common answer I get!
So, Greyhounds, English Bulldogs, Mastiffs. Clumber Spaniels, St Bernards, Neapolitan Mastiffs, Bullmastiffs... geesh, is it only the breeds with big heads and wrinkly faces?

Thanks guys, this is just something I was curious about.
