The Comical Guide to Dog Breeds You Have to Read Before You Get a Dog

With all the trouble surrounding canines in Malaysia this festive season, we sometimes forget to give credit to man’s best friend, loyal companion, and shoe biter (justified by their guilty face). For Grace Gogarty aka Little Tunny, animals play a big part in her art and an even stronger bond with dogs from Gogarty’s former experience as a doggy daycare supervisor. Inspired by the dog breeds that she’s encountered the most, this series of dog breed guide comic is divided into three parts for viewing pleasure: small, medium, and large.

Though the chance of owning every dog breed in the world is slim, an illustrated guide based on common stereotypes is perhaps the perfect way to understand these four-legged creatures before you decide to adopt one.
