    My take is dogs, definitely.

    More loyal than human species, less boring than felines.

    Perfection!

    But garlic is a species. Allium sativum. And it gets my vote.

    Bacteria. Most successful species on Earth. There are more bacteria in a human body than there are human cells in a human body.

    I propose a toast to Saccharomyces cerevisiae: "By fermentation, the yeast species Saccharomyces cerevisiae converts carbohydrates to carbon dioxide and alcohols – for thousands of years the carbon dioxide has been used in baking and the alcohol in alcoholic beverages.[5] It is also a centrally important model organism in modern cell biology research, and is one of the most thoroughly researched eukaryotic microorganisms. Researchers have used it to gather information about the biology of the eukaryotic cell and ultimately human biology.[6]

    Cockroaches can't hold a candle to the mighty Tardigrades. I think they hold all records for extremes of environment except maybe highest temperature.

    I just chanced upon an article about them within this last week and already I found a use 🙂

    Dogs get my greatest vote though.

    I read a book once. Some very clever people have estimated that 99.9999 percent of all species that have lived are now extinct, which says something for those which are still around, and particularly those which are surviving the current mass extinction. (Thanks, homo sapiens; nice job...) Anyway for me you can't beat a good crocodile; they look totally evil, and look a bit like dinosaurs, and dinosaurs are (were) very cool.
