Let’s talk about stereotypes. You hear the word “dog” and what comes to mind are images of strong, long-snouted furry animals that serve as the guard of your house. Their mission is to scare and ditch strangers, and possible burglars away from your home by barking out loud, even furiously. Then, on some days, especially holidays and weekends, you take a dog out in the morning sun as your jogging buddy, because you have no other companion.
That’s the way we used to think of these loyal companions. Some things just don’t stay the way they are. Around 15 years ago, the canine world started to change. Finally, canines don’t have to be the same old kind of dog that simply bark at people by routine to protect its master’s home. Back in 2000, we welcomed the so-called teddy bear dogs in our lives, the utterly adorable, mellow creatures that are so sweet, and affectionate to their masters. Matching their temperament, these cuddly pooches look like quiet giant cotton balls or big cotton candies, or in short – they look like toys. The only difference is that they are alive, and moving in cuteness overload. Ready to see some? Check them out!
Zeus the mini poodle and his froggy pose
Watch his dark, rounded eyes caught by the camera that tell you how much he shows off his cute froggy pose, and he can’t believe you fell for that. Wait, is Zeus even a real poodle, or is he a stuffed toy? Now, it’s giving you quite a confusion. But, of course, Zeus is a real pooch. Just a little sad thing, somebody owns him already. He’s taken, and definitely not for sale. No worries though, his pictures are free to look at. Go visit his Facebook page and see for yourself how much he likes the camera.
Disguised among look-alikes
It seems that this pooch is playing hide and seek with its master. What a witty idea to hide yourself in the open little buddy! Perhaps, at first glance, the master wouldn’t find the real one. But take a closer look. Carefully examine these bunch of five cute teddies on the bed, because one of them is not a toy, but a real dog. Now, you see it with your own eyes? Yes, you are right. It’s right there in the middle, nestled among its look-alikes. Go give the awesome little creature your warmest hugs.

“Look, there’s a fountain on my head”
Perhaps the owner of this pup perfectly understands how annoying it is to have long bangs that irritate the eyes. That’s why the annoyance led to a fountain on the pup’s head. And bam! It was perfect for a photoshoot. You as an onlooker though, has nothing to do but have a good laugh or a big smile as you watch how much this pup looks like the stuff toy you wanted to buy from the mall. A brilliant idea from this photo? It would be a whole lot better if you take a picture with your pup in matching hairdos.
Teddy finds long lost twinnie
So, have you figured out how the story goes between this seemingly identical twins? Finally, they found the way back to each other’s paws. Unfortunately, doggie and the real teddy wouldn’t be able to converse with each other as much as doggie wants to, because the real teddy’s so quiet.
Why you so serious little fella?
Maybe this pooch got some pretty serious thinking, figuring out why on earth do people continue to call him teddy from the toy store, when the fact is clear to him—the fact that he is born a dog and not a bear. Who wouldn’t think of this pup as a fluffy, huggable bear? He really looks like one. Nobody would deny it. But hey, little fella, stop being sad. We do believe that you are a dog and not a teddy from the store.
