Dog Breed Guide Is a Hilariously Accurate Representation of 20+ Different Pups

Cartoon Dog Comic

Choosing a canine companion can be a challenge. Different dog breeds each have their own personalities that might mesh perfectly with yours, or the two of you might drive each other crazy. Luckily, illustrator Grace Gogarty, aka Little Tunny, has created a hilariously helpful guide to distinguish the differences between dogs. Through quick sketches and witty bullet point “facts,” Gogarty has summed up over 20 breeds of canines.

Gogarty’s drawings capture the essence of a given type of dog. Her style is cartoonish, and she’s quick to exaggerate features like elongated snouts, dripping tongues, and serious underbites. The result is charming, and her addition of text is like the cherry on top; it makes the dogs seem either neurotic, delightfully dense, or loyal to a fault—either way, you're sure to laugh. While these aspects, like her sketching, is also an exaggeration, there is truth to her assessments of each pup. If you’ve ever tried to stop petting a Golden Retriever or heard a Husky howl, you’ll realize that Gogarty is right.

Meet Gogarty’s dogs below. How do they stack up to the real dogs you know?

Illustrator Grace Gogarty cleverly defines characteristics of different dog breeds in a series of hilarious drawings.
