Although dogs are categorized by different breeds, there are many similarities between them. Some have a similar body shape, others have short ears, and some have very short noses. Today, we’re going to look at breeds of dog with big eyes. Ready to meet them?

Animals with big eyes

There are many pets with big eyes, and although they don’t really provide them with an advantage over animals with smaller eyes, they certainly can look pretty or even quite funny.

For example, cats often stand out because of their eyes, not just the color, but the intensity of their gaze as well.

Some people say that such big eyes scare them, whilst other people think they’re beautiful. In fact, many renowned painters have dedicated their lives to painting both animals and people with big eyes.

Dogs are no exception, and there are a number of different breeds with big, beautiful eyes. Would you like to meet them?

Staffordshire Terrier

Although they’re often confused with Pit bulls, they have very different eyes that stand out straight away. Although they tend to be quite dark, their eyes tend to be larger in proportion when compared to other dogs and easily stand out.

Sometimes, they can have light grey eyes, but it’s not very common. When their fur is dark, their eyes stand out, but in any case, it’s hard to look anywhere else. Despite their robust build, their gaze is tender and affectionate, and you’ll be sure to want to play with them!

Labrador Retriever

Maybe their large size and the thickness of their fur has stopped you from noticing that they have huge eyes. We think that they have one of the noblest gazes in the animal kingdom.
