With so many fantastic dog breeds around, it’s not always easy to know which breed would suit your home, lifestyle and temperament. However, illustrator Grace Gogarty has come to the rescue. She has created a quirky guide that will not only help you to understand the differences between dog breeds but it will also make you laugh!
Grace used her previous experience of working at a doggy daycare to help her create her cute drawings and doggy breed profiles. The guide covers small, medium and large dog breeds, so no pooch will feel left out.
But as she hasn’t come across every dog breed in the world, Grace admits to not being able to include them all. Despite this, she’s certainly covered many of the most popular breeds you will have heard of. From Border Collies and Yorkshire Terriers to Great Danes and Golden Retrievers, the illustrator has managed to capture not only the unique looks but also the unique traits of each breed. For instance, a Corgi may be fit for a Queen but, according to Grace, they are also perfect for rounding up small children and will even dance for food!
While Grace hopes her guides will help people find their pawfect pup, she admits that she doesn’t have a favourite. After all, even her own dog Huey is made up of a mixture of several different breeds!
