40 Extra Cute Dogs That Look Even Cuter With Extra Skin

Everyone has some extra skin.

Especially if someone has lost a lot of weight, there might be a lot of excess skin left from their past that is hard to get rid of. However, dogs are the same as humans even though we treat them like our family. The excess skin they have is not because of the lack of fat in that area. A dog’s skin is simply more stretchy than a human and there is nothing wrong with that. Some people may not prefer a dog that has a lot of skin hanging off its muscles, but I think they look adorable.


Now before we get into this, let me assure you that none of these dogs is in pain and that the people aren’t stretching their skin forcefully. It is just a bit of harmless fun that doesn’t hurt the dog in question. While not all dogs have this amount of extra skin, some do. But I wouldn’t recommend that you go around playing with every dog you find like this. Some dogs may actually get hurt because of this. So always be careful. 

Now that the warning is out of the way. You can take a look at some incredibly adorable doggos by scrolling below.

The reason some dogs have a lot of excess skin is either because they lost weight or some breeds just naturally have extra skin for hunting purposes. However, if your dog has a lot of folds, it is paramount that you wash them regularly between the skin. If you don’t, there is a high chance the dirt will cause an infection between the skin. So while it looks adorable, people have to be careful enough to take care of their dogs properly.

Almost three years ago I went from 31 pounds to about 20 pounds. I lost about 1/3 of my body weight. I have sooo much extra skin! I guess what I technically need is a pug tummy tuck, but that’s okay- my extra skin makes me extra cuddly!
