Britain's Ideal dog breed

Could this be your ideal dog?

If you’ve ever wondered what it would look like if you took all the best bits of your favourite dog breeds and sort of cobbled them together into one super-hound, then behold – Britain’s ideal dog!

A survey of 2,000 dog owners across the UK, conducted by Frontline Spot On, revealed that the Brits are a nation of traditionalists when it comes to dog breeds. They want the floppy ears of a King Charles spaniel, the body of a border collie, the short fur of a bulldog, the snout of a labrador, the golden colour of a retriever and the long-flowing tail of an Irish setter.

Maybe not what you expected? You might get a few funny looks while taking this patchwork pooch for walk.

    Verity - Jack&Pep

    I thought the image for this was hilarious when I first saw it, but actually I think it’s pretty accurate! I love my Cocker Spaniel’s droopy ears and feathered tail, but I do sometimes wish her body fur was as low maintainance as my smooth coated Jack Russell’s!
