These heartwarming dog portraits reveal many beautiful breed types and even more shining pet personalities. From regal huskies who adore the snow to loveable pugs who love to snuggle, these pet portraits show that there's a match for any dog lover.

Rather than just pointing a camera at an animal and snapping a photo, some of the most creative photographers are choosing to capture quirky perspectives, such as underwater or up-close shots of snouts. Amongst these series are also a few that star rescue dogs that have found happiness in their new forever homes.

These creative pet portraits also include a number of side-by-side comparisons where the similarities of pets are measured up against their owners, as in 'Dog People' by photographer Ines Opifanti or food items in an editorial shoot from The Gourmand.
