There is no doubt that a dog is "man's best friend": many recent and past stories remind us how affectionate and loyal these furry little beings are towards us. This explains why they are one of the most popular pets. There are those who prefer to keep their dog in the garden and those who don't have any problem looking after it in their apartment, ensuring it goes for more than one stroll a day. Often, those who have a dog hang up, almost for fun, the famous "beware of the dog" sign, usually reserved for those rather menacing looking guard dogs. Leaving aside the dogs that, indeed, are excellent as guard dogs, there are many others who "claim" to be on guard even if they are not able to protect anything. In this roundup of photos, we want you to have a laugh with these beautiful dogs: would you entrust the guardianship of your home to one of them? Maybe not, but they certainly look cuddly!
