Dogs, cats, birds, hamsters, rabbits - no matter what they look like, we love ‘em to bits.

But when we snap a hilariously bad photo of them, we definitely enjoy a good laugh. And it seems that some pets in particular just don’t have model potential!

With that said, check out our top 10 not-quite-camera-ready cats and dogs:

1. The ultimate photobomb

This pooch, China, ain't got no time for pretty pictures.
