A “Beware of the Dog” sign usually makes one expect a bloodthirsty beast ready to defend a property at all costs – of perhaps that’s the image it is supposed to induce. What often hides behind the fences that hold those signs, though, might be exactly the opposite: an incredibly cute pup, a pacifist old dog, or even a cat trying to make itself look menacing. That, however, does not mean these animals cannot hurt you: you might end up being ferociously attacked with adorableness, licked to death or made to throw a stick until you run out of breath and perish. So, you know, beware of the dog!
Bored Panda has collected a list of these dangerous dogs (and other animals) so you can keep your eyes peeled and not end up like the many unsuspecting ones before you who became their victims.
