Whether you’re team cat or dog, you know we’ve always got you covered!

There’s no doubt about it though; puppers have so many adorable sides of their personalities that you just can’t resist!


Even when doggos are flaunting their most unflattering moments, they can’t help doing so with some level of cuteness! They may be looking like complete derps in the dog world, but to us and all of you, we’re sure that even the weirdest moments will make you laugh! These weird doggo malfunctions are classic moments that all dog owners are subject to, but the internet can’t get enough of them!

When people wanted a change from cute dog photos, they decided to bring in a new and more hilarious challenge to give us the twist we never knew we needed. Have you heard of the Dogspotting Society’s Unflattering Dog Photo Challenge?
