It’s International Dog Day, which means people across the world have the chance to celebrate their precious pooches and show how much they mean to us.
The day was created to celebrate all breeds of dog, and appreciate the value they bring to our lives, as well as celebrate their heroic acts (from guide dogs to sniffer dogs) and raise awareness of the number of rescue dogs in shelters that need a loving home.
It’s all about those very good boys and girls in other words – but on the lighter side, just how well do you know your dog breeds – and can you identify them from the above compilation of doggy photos?
Test your knowledge – or use the above next time you’re organising a quiz night, either virtual or in person – and see just how up to scratch your canine knowledge is.
The answers – together with a few more questions you can use in a quiz round on our four-legged friends – are below.
