Dogs are great pets, they're friendly, silly and always ready for an adventure. But somehow dogs have developed a "tough" reputation, and lots of people are actually afraid of dogs. It's true that some animals can be mean, especially if their owners don't look after them properly, but anyone who's actually owned a dog knows they're big doofuses.
Sure, maybe they'll bark if a robber tries to break into your house, but they'll do the same thing when the mailman goes walking by!
To celebrate dogs everywhere who don't live up to their scary reputation, we've collected 23 pictures of "guard dogs" who should really consider a career change.
