We love our doggos. The world would be one hell of a lonely, sad place without them and no one dares to tell us otherwise. But let’s face it, they are not the most graceful, sophisticated and cultured four-legged furries out there. Having said that, their instinctive dorkiness and unprecedented derpiness is exactly part of the reason why we love ‘em so much.

Speaking of the latter, today we’re diving into the world of derpy dogs, aka dogs acting like silly-asses and having no shame about it, where everything goes against manners, common sense, and mutual agreement.

But hey, the widely popular online community of r/AnimalsBeingDerps prove that there’s something fascinating about derpy animals and doggos are no exception! Scroll down, upvote your favorite pics and make sure to visit our previous article on derpy cats, because yeah, they too have their soft, dorky spot.

“To date, TikTok videos that are tagged with #dog have been watched over 120 BILLION times,” states Salman Haqqi, a senior pet insurance expert at Money.co.uk. So we reached out to him in a bid to find out what it is about our beloved doggos that makes the internet go crazy.

“The reason that pictures and videos of dogs are so popular online is because there's rarely anything controversial about a well-looked-after pooch,” Salman explained. He added that “content often goes viral because it evokes emotions from the masses and pictures and videos of dogs simply make people feel happier when they’re watching them.”

And in this hectic world, most of us feel deprived of feel-good emotions that give us such an emotional boost, therefore dogs become a vital part of that daily fix.

But are there particular breeds that are more prone to internet fame than others? It turns out that cross breeds are incredibly popular, “breeds such as Cockerpoos and Labradoodles are now some of the most popular due to the combination of desirable factors, both genetically and aesthetically.” As a result, “it adds to the cute factor and people's interest in those specific breeds.”

It’s no secret that the world of pet influencers has boomed in recent years, inspiring animal-specific influencer agencies, major brand campaigns and partnerships, and on-screen appearances. So you may have stumbled across the dog-influencer, which is a dog “that has a large following on social media platforms such as Instagram, TikTok, etc.”

“Obviously they've had help from their respective owners,” Salman noted and added: “but they're accounts people engage with, either because they can relate to having their own furry friends or just enjoy 'canine content' vicariously, without owning a dog themselves.”

It's my theory that in an actual robbery, the dog would pick up on the fear and adrenaline that would be flying around and would wake up and do his job. It's hard to fake fear and adrenaline.

Cause dogs are not stupid! The dog probably knew there was no danger (maybe saw the staged robber before in the store). I wouldn't bother to lose my sleep either!!

In his defence, he can probably tell that his owner is calm and everything is fine. You know those fake fainting challenges? My dog doesn't give a damn. But when I'm actually feeling ill, he's the first to take notice.

If you want a guard-dog, you don't get a Malamute (or possibly it's a fat Husky?). If you want guarding being done, you take Shepherds, Doberman, Rottweiler... you know, dogs whose JOB it was to guard stuff. A terrier would do well. Heck, even a Yorkie would do a better job than this fella and not because this guy is lazy or overweight but because guarding is not in their job-description. They are NICE dogs.

The dog could probably smell that the person behind the counter wasn't stressed. Fear releases various hormones which dogs are capable of detecting.
