The “We Rate Dogs” Twitter account has 9 million followers and it rates people’s dogs. It’s both funny and heartwarming.

If you have a dog, your photo gallery is probably full of pictures of it! It’s probably sleeping, running around, waiting for food, and sleeping again. Look at how cute it is in this one! People with dogs know they can be very photogenic, and they usually want to share the pictures with everyone.

It has never been easier to share pictures with social media. The Twitter account We Rate Dogs adds even more fun, by rating dogs in pictures people submit and adding funny captions to them. The account was created by Matt Nelson. Today we are sharing a new selection of some of the best dogs found on We Rate Dogs.

It’s almost impossible not to take pictures of your adorable dog. Matt Nelson knows this very well–he’s been rating and leaving funny comments on pup pictures since 2015, and that’s added up to thousands upon thousands of funny remarks.

He began by asking on his Twitter account if he should create a poll to rate dogs, and it quickly grew into a massive project with over 9 million followers, many re-shares, articles written about it, charity activities, and much more – all because of our funny, cute, and sometimes strange doggos!

Matt not only creates enjoyable content, but he also does his best to help dogs in need. Since he created his Twitter account, he has shared countless GoFundMe campaigns, raising millions of dollars to help give medical care to dogs who need it.

In 2020, he created the ’15/10 Foundation’ to help dogs in shelters with behavioral or medical problems. The name of the nonprofit references the highest rating ever given to a dog on We Rate Dogs.

Matt didn’t just create a foundation to help dogs with medical or behavioral issues – he adopted an elderly German shepherd named Doug. Doug has health problems and is unlikely to be adopted from a shelter because of his age.

Every year in the US, over 6 million pets end up in shelters, with 3.1 million of them being dogs. This statistic is from the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA).

As We Rate Dogs became more popular, it was obvious that Twitter wouldn’t be enough for everyone. So, in 2017, a book was published titled “We Rate Dogs: The Cutest and Funniest Puppies You’ve Ever Seen.” It contains some of the best picture-comment combinations and has details about the process of rating the puppies.

In an interview with Twitter, Matt shared that he wanted to make people laugh and that’s why he chose this social networking service. He said he experimented with different approaches until he found one that worked for him. Twitter later rated Matt himself and gave him a solid 13/10.

Content that spreads positivity and brings a smile can show how fun life can be with a dog. Matt’s example can help people to adopt or help dogs in any way they can.

A survey from the American Pet Products Association, which was presented by the Humane Society, showed that about 40% of dogs in the US have been adopted from a shelter or rescue group. It also found that up to 7% of people in the US have a dog.

About half of the dogs in the US are mixed breeds, but people still prefer some purebreds over others. In 2022, the American Kennel Club found some surprising facts – the Labrador retriever, which had been the most popular breed since 1991, was now second in the rankings. The French bulldog was now the number one breed, and the Golden retriever, German shepherd, and poodle were the next most popular breeds.

Dogs can cause a lot of trouble, but they can also be really good for us. Caren Osten, a life coach and mindfulness teacher, says that stress is lessened when we have a dog, and they give us comfort and a reason to get up in the morning. They make us go outside more and be around other people, and they can even help with feeling lonely and down.
