The Euro kicks off tomorrow with its first game and we could not be more excited! But as usual, here at Wamiz, we’re more concerned about dogs than anything else.

Three UK nations are taking part in the Euro this year: England, Scotland, and Wales! 

Whichever team you’re rooting for, we know as Wamiz readers that you have one thing at least in common: Your love of pets! But, as pet-savvy as you may be, did you know that each team has a national dog breed? Well, if you didn’t, now’s the time to discover which breed represents your team!

Welsh Sheepdogs closely resemble Border Collies, but generally have longer legs, a broader chest, and thicker muzzle. Welsh Sheepdogs are much less popular than their Scottish cousins, but they are also fantastic sheepdogs. Incredibly intelligent and active, they require a job to do and are not for couch potato owners!

England National Football Team: English Bulldog

English Bulldogs have long been associated with Britain. They’re also often connected to Winston Churchill, though he actually owned Poodles! English Bulldogs are generally very laid-back and loving pets. They come with a host of health issues however, and especially so because of their brachycephalic (flat) faces. 

Scotland National Football Team: Scottish Terrier

Scotties may be small, but much like the nation they hail from, they are mighty and feisty dogs! Scottish Terriers are known for being stubborn, and like most terriers, they like to bark and dig too! But Scotties are also very intelligent and extremely affectionate with their owners. They can come in different colours, but the most popular one is jet black!

So does your favourite team match up with your favourite dog breed?
