The only thing better than a dog in this world is a baby dog. Puppies are so sweet, so pure, and so cute that it’s almost too much to handle. Every puppy is perfection, but there are some puppy breeds out there that produce lethal amounts of cute.
These are the dog breeds that always have unbelievably adorable puppies.
