Dog Proverbs

The following Dog Proverbs come from countries around the world and give us an idea of what people of different origin and cultures think, or used to think..., about dogs!



What I discovered while collecting them is that, in many cases, the same proverb (slightly different) appears to be English, Italian, German, Danish, Chinese...

Trying to be fair, I simply put the world proverb next to those.
