25 Working Dogs Who Found Their Calling

Not everyone knows that dog breeds not only differ in appearance, but in terms of the job the dog is more likely to be good at. For example, a Foxhound is expected to hunt foxes well and Doberman was the first breed created specifically to be a guard dog. Today there are 11 types of dog jobs and hundreds of thousands of working dogs.

So no matter how cute the following furry friends are, don’t forget — they’re on a serious mission.

Here at Bright Side we can’t help but admire these dogs on duty, because they’re always ready to give us a helping paw. Scroll down for a high dose of cuteness!
