Cute Canines From Around the World

We have so many adorable dogs here in the US, but did you know that there are even more from other countries that we’re missing out on?! Here’s a look at some of the cutest canines from across the globe.

Swedish Vallhund

You call them Swedish Vallhunds; I call them Wolf Corgis. Yes, these adorable little farm dogs look exactly like shrunken wolves. I mean, c’mon, what’s cuter than a regal face with tiny stumpy legs? I might just have to move to Sweden and find a few of these adorable pups.

Hard to say, but easy to love. These West African hounds are long, lean, and lovely. They’re used mostly for hunting and guarding livestock, but they’re also known to be super loyal. These pups love heat and need a lot of exercise, so they’re perfect for the open, flat plains of Africa.

Head to Turkey to find these unique doggies. Catalburun are known for their rare split noses. These precious pointers use their special snouts for hunting and protecting the family. If you’re looking for a pup that’s smart and hardworking, look for the dog with the super snoot.

These doggos are known as gorgeous, gentle giants. Hailing from Russia, these hounds are similar to Greyhounds, but with longer, luscious locks. Despite their size, these guys make great lap dogs. They’re cuddly with their owners and generally very quiet. Sounds like a win-win in my book.

Peruvian Inca Orchid

When it comes to these pups, the word “cute” might be subjective. These hairless Peruvian hounds are sure to turn heads. They’re completely bald on their bodies, with some pups rocking a tiny, bold mohawk up top. But what they lack in appearance they make up for with their affectionate, loyal personalities.

Caucasian Ovcharka

If you want all the floof, look no further. This Shepherd from Georgia has you covered. These massive bear dogs look like the perfect snuggle partners. With their massive amounts of fur, brushing these pups is no easy task. But I say it’s worth the occasional grooming sesh to have this giant fluffball.

Shikoku Inu

Everyone knows Shiba Inus, but do you know about their wolf-looking cousins the Shikoku Inus? This Japanese breed is slightly larger and looks like a Shiba had an affair with a Husky. They’re super loyal and make great outdoor companions. BRB looking at flights to Japan for this precious pup.
