50 Adorable Stories Of Dogs Who Were Bred To Work But Failed Miserably

Must Read

National Dog Day is observed on August 26th, and we believe it is a brilliantly coined event that should be commemorated in some fashion.

The Museum of English Rural Life came up with a delightfully humorous idea to commemorate the occasion by posting pictures of dogs on Twitter.

With their objective of studying the “English countryside, its history, and its people,” the MERL decided to urge individuals to send in images of their funny canines who were bred for a certain purpose but failed horribly to fulfill it.

People instantly responded to the occasion, submitting entries of their canine breeds that turned out to be nothing more than couch potatoes, slackers, and hysterical.

To give you a greater idea of the difficulty, the Labrador Retriever was bred to catch hunted game, the Bernese Mountain Dog was bred to protect, and the Foxhound was bred to hunt down foxes.

People put a lot of effort into carefully breeding these doggos for a certain purpose, but despite their best efforts, these doggos turned out to be something quite different!

The MERL challenge was really amusing, and it resulted in some hilarious dog memes that are sure to brighten your day! So let’s get started scrolling so you can get a better idea of what’s going on.

The challenge’s formal call for entries has been posted!

These adorable pups may lack command of their skills and in-bred abilities, but they have a firm grip on their owners’ hearts, as well as ours!

Sure, they may be a little spoilt but they’re just so cute and gentle that we can’t help but feel so much love for their gentle and loving personalities. There’s a lot more where these came from, so keep scrolling!

Some of these dogs were designed to be enormous, harsh, and intimidating while guarding their people, yet they can’t help but have soft personalities and shower their masters with unconditional love.

They just want to relax out with the other doggos, pop open a cold one, and slumber the day away. Can we really blame them at this point? They’re just more docile than they were supposed to be!

We can’t say we blame these pups for having a different vision of how they want to live their lives.

These sleepy boys that enjoy napping, eating, and playing with their people have a more relaxed outlook on life, and their humans have embraced them just as they are!

It’s amusing how different these dogs turned out to be, and the fearsome and commanding monsters they were meant to be are nowhere to be seen!

MERL was responsible for bringing all of these doggos together on Twitter and allowing us to see and hear about them in all of their magnificence.

Whatever way they turned out, there’s no disputing that we love them and wouldn’t alter a thing about them! They added a humorous and wonderful twist to National Dog Day, and we are eternally thankful.
