Maybe you don’t like keeping animals inside your house -- dog hair can indeed be a headache -- but that doesn’t mean you’ll say "no" to a dog’s affection. There is no such thing as an average dog. If you give them the chance, you’ll have no choice but to sit there and let them love you.

Dogs are considered man’s best friend for good reason. They are loyal, they will protect you, and they will be there for you no matter what you’re going through. Anyone who’s had a wonderful dog as a pet will attest to how strong their silent, devoted companionship really is. We’re just humans and yet, a dog’s admiration can lift our spirits right when we need it most.

Many dog lovers will agree that because of how a dog makes us feel, they are an endless source of happiness and provide a very special friendship. A dog teaches us what it means to love unconditionally. Regardless of their size or breed, a tail wag or warm puppy cuddles are enough to put anyone in a better mood.

Quotes about dogs may not be enough to do our puppies justice, but they paint a lovely picture of the types of companions dogs can be. Now, your furry friend won’t be able to actually read the dog quotes that we have prepared for you, but you can. Take your dog out for a walk, take a picture of him and post it along with your favorite dog quote from the list below.

Dog Love Quotes To Cherish Your Best Friend

A dog doesn’t care where you live, how you look or how much money you make. All it asks for is your love and some occasional belly rubs and treats. A dog’s love is unconditional. If you ask me, dogs are beautiful creatures with even more beautiful souls.

Not everyone deserves one as not every dog owner will treat their pet as they should. But in spite of that, the dog will still love his master. It will still follow them anywhere and do whatever it takes for their master to love them back.

Enjoy our list of dog best friend quotes.

My main characters are the most sunny, happy, optimistic, loving creatures on the face of the Earth. I couldn’t be happier that’s where I start.

Such short little lives our pets have to spend with us, and they spend most of it waiting for us to come home each day.  


Dogs have given us their absolute all. We are the center of their universe. We are the focus of their love and faith and trust. They serve us in return for scraps. It is without a doubt the best deal man has ever made.  


Quotes About What A Dog Teaches Us

We can learn a lot from dogs. They set the bar exceptionally high when it comes to how we should treat others. Dogs set the example for loving someone no matter what. They are simple creatures; all they want is to spend time with us. Dogs teach children responsibility, and they teach adults how to let loose. No one can list all the life lessons that can be learned from dogs, but these quotes are a good start.

A dog will teach you unconditional love. If you can have that in your life, things won’t be too bad.


Fall in love with a dog, and in many ways you enter a new orbit, a universe that features not just new colors but new rituals, new rules, a new way of experiencing attachment.


Dogs come into our lives to teach us about love, they depart to teach us about loss. A new dog never replaces an old dog, it merely expands the heart. If you have loved many dogs your heart is very big.   


A boy can learn a lot from a dog: obedience, loyalty, and the importance of turning around three times before lying down.  


Nobody can fully understand the meaning of love unless he’s owned a dog. A dog can show you more honest affection with a flick of his tail than a man can gather through a lifetime of handshakes.

There's nothing quite like the look a dog gives you. Whether it's the sad puppy eyes when they're trying to get a treat or go for a walk, or the excitement they can't contain when you come home, a dog's admiration is unlike any other. Maybe it's because they can't lie, maybe it's because they're innocent, but regardless the reason, the way a dog loves its owner will warm anyone's heart.

No matter how you’re feeling, a little dog gonna love you.  


I think dogs are the most amazing creatures; they give unconditional love. For me, they are the role model for being alive.  


Dogs leave pawprints on our hearts.


You know, a dog can snap you out of any kind of bad mood that you’re in faster than you can think of.  


They [dogs] never talk about themselves but listen to you while you talk about yourself, and keep up an appearance of being interested in the conversation.  


Dogs are not our whole life, but they make our lives whole.  


The poor dog, in life the firmest friend. The first to welcome, foremost to defend.  


Loss Of A Dog Quotes

Sadly, these beautiful creatures don’t live forever. Once they pass away, they leave their owners with a broken heart -- losing a dog can be an excruciating experience.

If you’ve ever lost a furry friend, we hope that the following dog passing quotes will give you some sort of comfort, even if only temporarily.

It’s hard to think that your buddy will no longer be there to welcome you the moment you step inside your house. Nothing can replace the happiness in their eyes when they see you entering a room. Of course, you can always adopt another puppy, but your old buddy will forever remain in your heart.

Here are a few loss of a dog quotes for those who’ve lost their furry best friend.

If you have a dog, you will most likely outlive it; to get a dog is to open yourself to profound joy and, prospectively, to equally profound sadness.  


If there are no dogs in Heaven, then when I die I want to go where they went.  


Not the least hard thing to bear when they go from us, these quiet friends, is that they carry away with them so many years of our own lives.  


Dogs die. But dogs live, too. Right up until they die, they live. They live brave, beautiful lives. They protect their families. And love us, and make our lives a little brighter, and they don’t waste time being afraid of tomorrow.  


I have sometimes thought of the final cause of dogs having such short lives and I am quite satisfied it is in compassion to the human race; for if we suffer so much in losing a dog after an acquaintance of ten or twelve years, what would it be if they were to live double that time?  


To call him a dog hardly seems to do him justice, though inasmuch as he had four legs, a tail, and barked, I admit he was, to all outward appearances. But to those who knew him well, he was a perfect gentleman.  


Dogs’ lives are too short. Their only fault, really.

Dogs are extremely funny, it’s like they’re natural born comedians. They can make you laugh even when they make a mess, roll over in dirt, or drink water from the toilet. Yes, some do that too, and you can’t stay mad at them. You just can’t, even if you want to. They’ll make all your anger disappear once they look at you with those big, innocent eyes.

They’re playful and clumsy even when they are trying to be serious and we can’t resist those wagging tails. These joyful balls of fur simply make our lives better.

With that in mind, we have selected some of the funniest dog quotes that will definitely brighten up your day.

No one appreciates the very special genius of your conversation as the dog does.  


Anybody who doesn’t know what soap tastes like never washed a dog.  


What do dogs do on their day off? Can’t lie around  that’s their job.  


I’ve seen a look in dogs’ eyes, a quickly vanishing look of amazed contempt, and I am convinced that basically dogs think humans are nuts.  


Outside of a dog, a book is a man’s best friend. Inside of a dog it’s too dark to read.

Cute Dog Quotes

All dogs are cute because it’s in their nature to be so -- whether they’re those tiny ones that look like living toys or those big ones that might scare you at first.

Even the scariest looking breeds can be cute, it all depends on how they were raised; and even then, there's almost always a playful, softy somewhere in there. I almost froze when a Doberman started running towards me. It turns out he only wanted a play mate.

It’s sad that no matter how hard we try, humans haven’t yet reached that level of loyalty and friendship that dogs have. We still have a lot to learn from our buddies. Meanwhile, read our compilation of cute and heart-melting dog quotes and become the best friend your dog can have.

Dog is God spelled backward.  


I like dogs. You always know what a dog is thinking. It has four moods. Happy, sad, cross, and concentrating. Also, dogs are faithful and they do not tell lies because they cannot talk.

You can tell by the kindness of a dog how a human should be.
