23 Pics Of The Best Unexpected Dog Encounters From The ‘Dogspotting’ Facebook Group

According to the Facebook group of the same name, ‘dogspotting’ is a “sport and lifestyle of spotting random dogs.” It’s a wonderful place on the internet where people can share adorable and precious pictures of all the doggos that they spot on the streets.

It’s also a fun place to hang out and enjoy beautiful pics of pups with the people who love dogs just as much as you do.

The rules of the group are simple: don’t post your own dog or a dog you’ve already met, only spot members of the Canis familiaris group, and provide adequate context. Currently, the group has more than 1.8 million members, and it is very popular all over the world.

The key is to capture the precious moment, share it, and bring smiles and joy to others. No matter what, a wholesome photo of a dog can always make your day better.

#23 A Hydrant Pup

“this is Jessie! She came up to my roommate and I asking for pets when she was passing on her walk in Salem, MA. After a short conversation about her, Jessie’s father beckoned us to the nearest fire hydrant (which was about 10 feet away). She hopped onto it without prompt, and I wonder what a shock it was for him when he found out she does that. This was also my favorite part of the trip and a story I will pass onto my grandchildren now.”
