12 Loving Dogs That Prove We Can All Get Along

Dogs are hands down, without a doubt, the friendliest creatures on the planet! Toothy smiles, sparkling eyes, wagging tails – these guys were made for companionship! It’s no secret that they’re man’s best friend, and their friendliness sometimes extends to dogs that might be a bit… different. These pictures are evidence that no matter how strange a different dog may seem, your dog would probably be happy to befriend it!

It’s also polite to ask your dog’s guests if the temperature in your home is comfortable. You don’t need to adjust your thermostat, but guest fuzz dogs like the above may need a warm, wooly blanket.
