Most of us see dogs as our furry, stay-at-home, companions, who live their life day after day without any particular responsibility, apart from making us happy, and we often forget that there are so many dogs around the world who have actual jobs, and live their life doing their best to be good boys.
Dogs can do a wide range of jobs, both serious ones, like service dogs, police dogs, therapy dogs or search and rescue dogs, and silly ones, like Airbnb hosts, Staff Morale Officers and print shop workers.
The dogs of this list, compiled by Just Something, do their best to save people’s day, and only ask for their human friends’ love in return.
