Is there such a thing as too many dogs? Here at Bored Panda, we believe that the answer is a very hearty ‘no!’ Hilarious and quirky photos of dogs and cats, delicious food pics, and fabulous examples of art, photography, and crafts… these are all things that we firmly believe the world needs more of. And there’s nothing like a host of funny and cute dog pics to boost your mood and help you through the workweek! The weekend is a dozen nose-boops and doggo snuggles away.
That’s where the super-popular Dogspotting group over on Facebook comes in. A community with over 1.8 million members, Dogspotting is dedicated to spotting, photographing, and sharing photos of random dogs. It’s also “a fun place to hang out with friends who enjoy dogs.” Frankly, it sounds like heaven.
Have a scroll through some of the most heartwarming, wholesome, and hilarious photos of our canine buddies, as featured on the Dogspotting group, and don’t forget to upvote the pics that you liked the most. We’d love to hear which of these dogs you’d love to bring home with you if you could so drop us a line in the comments. Oh, and when you’re done with this list, check out our earlier article about Dogspotting right over here.
As much as we might want to rush over to random dogs and pet them until the end of time, there are some things that we should be aware of. Unfortunately, not all dogs want our love and attention (I know, it’s heartbreaking!).
“Lots of us light up when we see a furry friend on our travels and our first instinct is to try to become friends, but our canine companions might not always feel the same way about us. Before approaching any pooch, the most important thing to remember is to check with the owner first. Not only is this polite, but the owners will also know a lot more about their beloved pet’s behavior than you do,” PDSA Vet Anna Ewers Clark explained to Bored Panda.

According to PDSA Vet Anna, some dogs can have fears and phobias that we’re not aware of. That means they might not want too much attention, so you’ll have to stick to admiring them from afar, instead of getting up close and personal.
“Other dogs may be over-enthusiastic and might jump up or lick you if their owner isn’t prepared. With these dogs, you might be able to do some positive training by talking to the owner and rewarding the dog with lots of fuss once they’re calm and sitting down.”
Anna noted that a golden rule that all of us doggo-lovers should live by is to “get clued up about canine communication.” Even though dogs can’t speak, we can tell from their body language what they’re thinking and how they’re feeling.

“Even if the owner gives you the go-ahead to say hello, it’s important to check that the dog is happy and relaxed while you’re greeting them. It’s really important to pay close attention as some doggy indicators can be very subtle or misinterpreted. PDSA’s canine ladder of communication shows how to tell if a dog is stressed or unhappy.”
I previously had a couple of friendly chats with the incredibly friendly team behind the Dogspotting group. The entire Dogspotting project is far bigger than you might think at first glance. You’ve got the Dogspotting Society, Dogspotting Media, and even Dogspotting Court pages to round out the entire community.
It’s all very orderly and you’ll quickly realize just how much effort is put in on a regular basis to keep the entire project flowing smoothly.

The Dogspotting team previously told Bored Panda that their community members are incredibly proactive. They’re responsible for the fun challenges like #didntwantadogchallenge and #HiddenDogChallenge that you’ll find on the page.
"I think it’s a common experience when you’re in a household of many to have one person who might not be as excited as the others. But dogs usually find a way to melt those hearts pretty quickly. And as we’ve seen on the page, it happens a lot!" one of the page’s representatives told Bored Panda earlier that even people who don’t really want a dog eventually grow to love the dashing pup who rolled their way into their lives.

The representative of the Dogspotting team urged people to adopt a dog. Especially if you find yourself working from home. "Now is a great time to do it! With so many people working from home, you’ll have more time to bond with your new best friend! Contact local animal rescues and shelters in your area and they’ll be able to help you! We know this year has been very difficult for a lot of our members and the challenges have added a bit of levity for everyone,” they shared with us earlier.
