Don’t get us wrong, we love a canine who looks like a regular ol’ sweet dog — but when a dog looks like an entirely different beast, the cuteness factor seems to multiply.
Check these guys out and we dare you to disagree.
1. The panda dog
We would watch this dog all day on the Panda Cam, oh yes we would.
2. Extreme grooming camel dog
First thought, last thought, only thought: Who are the owners of this camel dog?
3. Fierce zebra dog
You are not as fierce as this zebra dog, and she knows it.
4. King of the jungle dog
Simba, is that you?
5. Tiger dog
Hobbes, is that you?
6. Polar bear dog
We had to check twice to make sure this dog is real and not a stuffed animal of fluffy delight.
7. “Oh no, it’s a skunk!” dog
Shield your noses! Run far, far away!
8. Giraffe dog
Why yes, that is a giraffe dog out and about.
9. The mop dog
Half beast, half cleaning implement, all cuteness.
10. Loaf of bread dog
11. David Bowie dog
We loved this little pom in Labyrinth.
12. Teddy bear dog
13. Lamb dog
You can try to convince us that Bedlington terriers don’t look like lambs, but you won’t succeed.
14. Tiny Star Wars creature dog
Somewhere a galaxy far, far away is missing an ewok.
15. The wolf dog
This guy looks 100 percent wolf, but according to his Instagram bio he’s all Siberian Husky.
