141 Mischievous Pets Being Shamed For Their ‘Crimes’

We love our pets but they can be incredibly naughty and mischievous animals at times. Like when your ferrets ‘accidentally’ order a phone from Amazon. Or when your doggos make a mess by eating toilet paper and pieces of a puzzle (and you were so close to finishing it, too!).

Pet owners are shaming their misbehaving pets by posting photos of them along with signs stating their ‘crimes.’ Bored Panda has collected some of the best pics, so scroll down, enjoy, and remember to upvote your fave ones. We’re sure that you’ve got some stories about your pets getting into shenanigans, too, dear Pandas—we’d love to read them in the comments!

Listen beautiful relax classics on our Youtube channel.

When you’re done with this list, we invite you to look through our earlier posts about the hilarious times that fish got shamed for being naughty, about mischievous cats, and about farmers who are shaming their chickens for their ‘crimes.’

#3 Dog Ate Husband’s Teeth

My husband lost 2 front teeth due to a skateboarding accident. His new flipper wasn’t comfortable and he took it out and left it on the end table. Leaving the room for a moment was all it took for our Daphnie to get a hold of them.

Daphnie was NOT hurt, what ever pieces she actually ingested passed without incident. The only thing this hurt was our budget! Even the best Dental Coverage doesn’t replace teeth when your dog eats them.

The pet shaming meme is a spinoff from the ‘Dogshaming’ Tumblr blog that was launched in 2012. It all started with a photo of a dachshund (aka a sausage doggo) with a sign saying, “I am an underwear eating jerk!” This then led to the creation of the ‘Dogshaming’ online community. They even have a website.

Eventually, people started posting photos of other misbehaving pets, not just dogs. We’ve had people shaming cats, fish, birds, and plenty more. However, not everything might be as innocent as you might think.

#4 True Story

My husband and I went out to the garage to feed our black lab thus leaving the ferrets to their own devices. After a short time we returned to the following:

1. Someone had opened one of my husband’s Harbor Freight emails and searched for item number “1q”””smffmnnnn”. There were no results.

2. Wesley (on the left) had ordered a Samsung Galaxy S4 for $180 using the ever so convenient Amazon one-click option.

3. Ryan (right) turned off the power strip which supplied the laptop, phone charger, ferret litter box ventilation fans, and the internet, but not before Wesley’s purchase went through.

This is a true story. We canceled the order. We weren’t really sure what to put in the explanation box.

Some animal welfare experts and vets believe that pet shaming might be detrimental to their wellbeing and undermines the animals’ dignity. According to some vets, the photos of pets that are looking guilty might actually show them afraid or anxious.

“The idea of shaming a dog is daft. Dogs don’t like having the mickey taken out of them and can undoubtedly plug into that. So why would you do that to your pet? You wouldn’t mock your family or your friends like this, so why your dog?” secretary of the Kennel Club, Caroline Kisko, told The Telegraph.

“It might be a bit of fun when it is kept to a reasonable level, but people take them too far and it stops being funny for the dog. Dogs have a level of dignity and we don’t want to undermine that. They are meant to be a companion, not a joke.”
