15 Fun Facts About Dogs!😊

Here are some fascinating facts about dogs, some of which you may already know but we think you’ll still find them all entertaining and fun!

  1. A dog’s nose print is unique, much like a person’s fingerprint.
  2. Forty-five percent of U.S. dogs sleep in their owner’s bed. Errrm… how about Nigerian dogs?

  4. The shape of a dog’s face suggests its longevity: A long face means a longer life.
  5. Dog eyes have a part called the tapetum lucidum, allowing night vision.
