Pigs and dogs are good starter pet since they have low wilderness, the fact they are omnivore make feeding them easier, but it also mean they will eat stuff you don't want them to.
Elephant+fox is good if you want set separate zone so they don't eat stuff they shouldn't but still haul everything.
Elephant are the best(great fighter, fully trainable, is pack animal) minus being a bit expensive.
Thumbo are good it if your feeding them wild trees instead of food. Otherwise elephants are better.

Dogs are the best if you want things hauled from your fields, since dogs won't eat crops...they're also the easiest to train.

pigs are great if you don't have them haul from your fields or don't care if they eat crops, since they eat grass and growing plants, they're easier to feed.  They also breed faster than dogs, bond less easily, and are only marginally harder to train.

Bears, elephants and other large, tough haulers are good hybrid hauler/fighters, pulling their weight both in and out of combat.  They are more expensive, harder to train and tame, and can be costly to send into combat.

Now, if you're talking about CARGO capacity, as in for caravans, vanilla only gives 3 options: alpaca, dromedary, and muffalo, of which muffalo have the highest carrying capacity.

Dogs are actually omnivores, so they will eat some of the crop. Also there are 4 vanilla pack animal with elephants.

Actually now that I think about it wargs are probably better than fox since don't eat meals and have lower wilderness.

Dogs do not eat growing crops.  yes, they'll eat some of the goods after they're harvested/hauled, but pigs will eat the growing plant, possibly costing you an entire corn stalk (22 corn) for a small portion of their hunger. 

The distinction is significant, since eating raw food is fairly efficient for dogs, while eating planted crops is pretty much always a problem (you want them eating random plants growing around the map, not the crops you planted that will mature into far more nutrition)
