Goofy, silly, and 100% wholesome content in canine form—that’s what you get when you visit the ‘What Kind of Dog is This’ Twitter page. A social media project that started very recently, in April of 2022, the page has grown to nearly a quarter of a million followers in just over half a year.

The secret to their success? It’s simple, really. Dogs, dogs, and more dogs! The page shares heartwarmingly funny photos of doggos in all shapes, sizes, and levels of derpiness. And we can’t get enough of them. And we hope you can’t either.

We really wanted to do something nice for you, Pandas, so we collected some of the very best dog pics to brighten your day. Check out the very best of ‘What Kind of Dog is This’ below and don’t forget to upvote your fave pics (1 upvote = 1 head pat). Got some more space in your heart for some more floofs, snoots, and friendly paws? Check out Bored Panda’s earlier article about the Twitter page right over here.

Hope you’ve packed enough Scooby Snacks (the healthy kind) for everyone!

Bored Panda got in touch with the PDSA, the UK’s leading veterinary charity, to get their expertise on a couple of important issues. We had a chat about what considerations to keep in mind regarding costumes for dogs, as well as what human foods we should avoid giving our beloved pets. PDSA Vet Nurse Nina Downing answered our questions and warned us of the potential dangers, including how chocolate and certain sweets are toxic. You’ll find her insights as you read on.

“While as humans we might enjoy choosing new outfits and dressing up in fun costumes, pets don’t share our enthusiasm as ‘clothes’ often make them feel stressed and uncomfortable. There are some really important things to consider, which owners may not think about when they first see a funny outfit to buy for their pet,” PDSA Vet Nurse Nina told Bore dPanda.

“Clothes can be quite restrictive and can get in your pet’s way when they try to do normal things like walking, going to the toilet, grooming themselves, or even communicating with you through their body language. Clothes might make your pet feel itchy, too hot, or even choke them if they get tangled up or caught on something,” she warned.

“Wearing clothes isn’t natural for pets and it can cause them stress. Dogs might show they’re stressed by licking their lips, yawning, or panting, whereas cats may paw at themselves, lick and try to remove the clothing. Alternatively, some pets may just freeze or try to hide away,” Nina noted how dog owners can tell if their pets are stressed and uncomfortable.

“Ask yourself if your pet can still communicate effectively whilst wearing clothes. Communication is very important for animals. If your pet is dressed up, other animals may struggle to read their body language properly, and could act aggressively towards them. If your pet is already stressed from being dressed up, they might act differently around others too,” the PDSA representative told Bored Panda.

“Importantly, and this may seem an odd question to ask yourself, but is it respectful to your pet to dress them up? As owners, we love and protect our pets, and desperately want to keep them safe—we wouldn’t want to see them come to harm of any kind. Dressing a pet up could open them up to ridicule and mockery, as well as expose them to risk from other animals,” the animal health expert suggested that owners should think long and hard about dressing their pets up at all. 

Meanwhile, the vet charity enlightened us about the relationship between dogs and human food. In the 2022 PDSA Animal Wellbeing (wonderfully named PAW) Report, 60% of owners said that they regularly give their pets human food. According to the PDSA, it’s essential to be aware of the potential dangers of feeding them what we eat and to resist those puppy dog eyes.

“It’s important to remember that some human food can pose a real threat to our furry family members,” PDSA Vet Nurse Nina said. “Chocolate, for example, is toxic to pets, due to a chemical called theobromine which can make them extremely unwell, and may even be fatal in rare cases. Some sweets can also be dangerous to dogs if they contain the sweetener xylitol (birch sugar), which causes dangerously low blood sugar levels and liver failure—dogs must be treated urgently, as delay in treatment could have fatal consequences.”

The vet nurse stressed that it’s absolutely vital that owners “keep these human treats, along with any wrappers, well away from prying paws.”

“It’s also important to understand that a lot of the food we eat tends to be relatively high in fat, salt, and sugar. While this isn’t great for us, the smaller size of our pets can mean even more serious consequences, with upset tummies or, longer term, weight gain leading to increased risk of diabetes and other weight-related complications,” she warned.

“But we understand that lots of owners like to give their dog something a bit special as an occasional treat and although your dog might not understand what a sweet treat like cake is, most of them enjoy a treat just as much as we do. Making doggy cake is popular as people can use ingredients they have in kitchen cupboards instead of needing to buy lots of new ingredients just for your dog,” PSDA Vet Nurse Nina said.

“Remember though, giving your dog too many treats can be adding a lot of extra calories that they don’t need especially if they struggle with their weight already, and in a lot of cases some extra fuss and attention would make them just as happy as a treat! We’ve pulled together some recipes here which you could try.”

Deciding to welcome a pet into your life is one of the biggest (and best!) decisions that you’ll ever make. Not only do you have a wonderful friend by your side, you also hold the power to boost practically anyone’s mood.

Have you ever watched your coworkers’ faces light up when you bring your doggo to the office? Have you ever noticed the utter joy on random passersby's faces when you take your cute pupperino for its daily walks? Dogs are magical and/or potentially sent by heaven to help us get through the toughest of times. (The jury’s still out on cats! But the Canine Council pays us in Scooby Snacks to write stuff like that.)

Everyone decides for themselves whether it’s best to adopt a dog from a local animal shelter or to get a puppy from a breeder. Everyone’s family and home situations, and needs are different, after all.

However, we firmly believe that anyone who opens up their homes to animals in need are everyday superheroes who deserve to get a medal (cheese or gold, you decide).

Though it’s easy to want a dog, raising one and taking good care of it isn’t without its challenges. You have to know for a fact that you can give your future pet the best quality of life it can have before you impulse-adopt 101 ado(g)rable animals.

Kelly DiCicco, from the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA), previously told Bored Panda about the things that pet owners should keep in mind in terms of adoption.

“It should be expected that you’ll experience lifestyle changes over the course of the pet’s life, such as moving, having children, or getting a new job, so it's important to consider how you will care for your pet during those changes before you add that pet to your family; many shelters offer various forms of support to answer questions you might have before you adopt, or afterward,” she told us.

“While each shelter is different, pets are generally assessed and then introduced to potential adopters based on the likelihood of compatibility. Every animal is an individual—even those within a specific species or breed—and shelter staff are experts at making matches that work,” the ASPCA explained to Bored Panda.

“If you ultimately determine that now is not the best time to adopt, fostering can allow you to change an animal's life for the better and is a rewarding experience for those who choose to become caregivers,” Kelly, from the APSCA, said that fostering is always an option.

“We always encourage adopters to keep an open mind and heart when visiting a shelter or rescue; as you may walk out with a pet you'd never considered before, like a senior animal or an animal who looks nothing like what you originally had in mind,” she said.

“Adopting an animal from a shelter or local rescue organization saves more than one life by freeing up space and resources for another animal in need,” the ASPCA explained to us earlier the massive effect that every adoption has.
