There’s a good reason they say dogs are man’s best friend. Historians and scientists think we’ve been domesticating dogs somewhere between 18,000 and 32,000 years ago. Back then, they were wild wolves that lived in packs in the forest. Fast forward to today and they’re our closest buddies.

It’s no wonder they’ve earned the title of mans best friend. Dogs are affectionate, loving, brave, and completely loyal. Once they become a part of your pack, so to speak, they’ll never abandon you. They’re happy to go anywhere with you and love being as close to you as possible.

Looking at modern dogs, it’s hard to believe they descended from wolves. Some of them are so tiny they don’t even look like they’re in the same ballpark as other dogs. But we love them all —big and small, shaggy, and short-haired. Whether a lapdog and or watchdog, we can’t help but adore them.

Sure, they might not look like wolves today but they’re so ridiculously cute with their little noses and big ungainly paws. It’s easy to understand why everyone loses their minds over pups. They just can’t help it. Here are 75 puppies that are so cute, they’ll make you ask how it’s even possible.
