Dogs tend to be territorial which is why they are often given the task of protecting homes. However, although it’s in their nature to be protective, not all of them are qualified for the job. No matter how hard they train and how much effort they put into looking tough, some dogs just don’t have what it takes to be a guard dog.
If you don’t believe that, here are 60 “guard dogs” that will make you die in laughter.
1. Beware of this dog!
This one’s a very good example of expectations versus reality. Instead of seeing a really angry dog when you walk past this property, you’ll see a super adorable dog with his tongue sticking out.
2. A sensible warning
Apparently, this warning isn’t meant to scare you to get off of the property. It’s a simple warning to make sure you don’t step on the dog as you go through that gate.
3. You’ve been warned.
This particular dog lives in a house with a huge “Beware” sign on its front yard. It’s a warning so you won’t spend hour petting her.
4. The “scariest” guard dogs
This property must be so valuable that it has not one but two guard dogs. They are highly trained to harm you with their cuteness. See how focused they look?
5. False advertising
This dog is trying her best to look scary. Unfortunately, the only thing she’s succeeding at is looking adorable. There’s no way anyone would get frightened by this pup!
6. That’s strange
It looks like someone was fired from his job. And judging by the way he looks, it’s quite obvious that he’s been kicked out of the house, too.
7. Couldn’t wait any longer
This puppy couldn’t wait for people to see him and get scared of him. So, he decided to grab the sign and make his way to scare them.
They say, when you put your heart into something, no one will be able to stop you. That is exactly what this little guy had in mind. Surely, there’s no messing with this dog.
9. Someone’s on a break
Getting hired as a guard dog doesn’t mean that you’re on the job 24/7. Sometimes, you need to relax, too. Go out and soak under the sun, just like this dog.
10. The substitute
And when you decide to go on a break, make sure that there’s someone who’ll cover for you. This cat was surely happy to take the job.
11. The trainee
This dog is doing an excellent job in “trying” to be a guard dog. His stance, facial expression, and bark are on point. Let’s give him credit for that.
12. Not in a good mood
This dog has been working all day. He’s too tired to even care about you getting near his property or taking his photo.
These dogs don’t give warnings. They’ll just attack you with lots of kisses when you least expect it.
14. In proper uniform
Someone’s pretty excited on his first day on the job. He’s got his game face on and he’s wearing his complete uniform.
15. Wrong breed
It’s either the sign got it all wrong or this adorable Pomeranian is standing on another dog. Let’s hope it’s the first one.
16. According to size
Warning signs are often made in big sizes to make sure that people get to read them easily. In this case, however, the sign was just proportional to the size of the dog. Nonetheless, you should take this puppy seriously.
17. The best he could do
This dog is trying to put on his scariest face. In reality, however, he just looks like he’s asking for people to pet him.
18. Too tired to care
Who expects anyone to work on a really hot day? Nope, certainly not this dog. With the gate open like that, you can come in anytime you want. He won’t care.
19. Putting one’s best foot (or paw) forward
Someone is trying to make a really good first impression at work. This dog is letting everyone know that he’s scary.
20. Come in!
This dog accepts treats as bribe. Give him some and he’s likely to show you around his home. Giving him a belly rub might work, too.
21. Not sure
This is how most of us look like on our first day at work. Scared and clueless, just like how this puppy looks.
22. To laugh or not to laugh
This is how you’d look like when you show up at work after spending the entire night drinking and partying with friends. Well, you got to do what you got to do.
23. Not for humans
This sign isn’t for humans. It’s actually meant for the squirrels.
24. Quite risky
Getting inside a property guarded by a mean dog can be scary, particularly when you think about dog bites. In this case, however, you need to be scared about dog licks and kisses.
25. When they are in it together
As a family, you need to protect your home together. The dog and this cat are doing an excellent job in making sure no one gets inside.
26. Never judge a dog by its size
Even if he’s small, this dog certainly mean business. No treats and belly rubs will get you inside.
27. Partners in crime
Don’t get fooled by how adorable these two look. They are good at what they do.

No matter how lonely this dog looks, you should resist getting near it. If you fall victim to the trap, you can end up spending hours playing with it.

There’s got to be a mean dog in that photo- if only the cat is allowing it do its job.
