The dog is man’s best friend, as the saying goes. This becomes even more apparent if you consider that dogs, descendants of the gray wolf, were first domesticated 15’000 years ago.
They are extremely loyal companions that often even suffer cruelty and abuse without fighting back. Fortunately however, most people around the world are thankful for these useful animals, be it as working dogs such as patrol or detection dogs for the police, army, border control or emergency services, as sheepdogs, drought animals, guards or as guide dogs for the blind.
Even our little ones take immense pleasure in these kind creatures. What could be more delightful for a child than cuddling a puppy and being lovingly licked by their clumsy guardians. Even if you do not own a dog yourself, we are sure that our sweet “golden dog“ will touch your heart, especially as it is also housetrained.
