50 Seriously Adorable Dogs You Can't Help But Love With Your Whole Heart

by Elana

There's no such thing as an ugly dog, just to be clear, but just how adorable a dog can get? That's an entirely different conversation.

If you don't already know, you may be surprised to learn that DNA analysis published in the late 90's revealed that every single dog ever is descended from wolves over 130,000 years ago. It's even believed that many dogs went through domestication in two separate instances!

It's hard to look at some dogs and imagine how far down the DNA chain they are from wolves and not have a hearty chuckle, but in some ways it's evidence that dogs have enough in common for us to behave so matter-of-fact about the unanimous cuteness levels. Yet, no matter how many cute dogs we've seen before, we just can't seem to get enough.

In case you need to read it, there's nothing wrong with a relentless, never-ending desire to see more cute dogs. It's healthy, I'm sure of it.

If there's one thing Reddit doesn't get enough credit for, it's the ability to bring us a never-ending supply of those highly coveted cute dog pictures. One of the best examples is a subreddit that isn't even exclusively for the dogs: r/aww.

In the United States, having a dog in the family is often considered about as "American as it gets." According to a 2019/20 pet owners survey, over 63 million households in the US have at least one dog.

63 million households equates to almost 60%. Sadly, renters with pets still manage to fill out 1.6x as many applications for rental units as renters without any pets at all.

There's nothing wrong with needing to see more dogs!
