Our pooches are cute in a hundred different ways.

From their loving eyes, adorable snuggles, and goofy behaviour that always makes us laugh, they give us so many reasons to love them.

When a paw is also a bear

But now one owner has discovered another adorable fact about our dogs - the bottom of their paws look like tiny little koala bears.

He made the discovery after checking his pup's paws following walkies across a sandy beach in Australia, home of the koala bear.

The unnamed pooch lover shared a pic on Twitter, and now it's hard to understand why we didn't spot this earlier.

The pic received almost 50k likes and inspired more dog lovers to share pics of their own pup's paws.

One Twitter user even added a few special effects to her post:

Now that one definitely looks like a bear!

Others were relieved at the post, writing:

"Oh, good. I thought I was alone in this."

Another owner spotted a bit more detail in her koala bear paws. She wrote:

"It's a koala in a fur coat."

Some decided to dress up the mini koalas!

Real koalas live in the coastal regions along South Australia. These small, plant-eating marsupials are one of the cutest and most popular species on the planet.

Have you checked your pet's paws yet?

Tourists from all over the world travel thousands of miles to catch a glimpse of their adorable faces and cuddly frames.

But all you need to do is take a look at your pup's paws. So go on, we know you're dying too!
