No One is More Loyal Than a Gun Dog: Here Are 20 Photos (and 1 Video) to Prove It

Nothing gets between a hunter and a hunting dog. To pay homage to our four-footed hunting buddies, we've collected 21 inspiring photos of hunting dogs you need to see.

Whether we use them for running, flushing, treeing, retrieving, or just as a buddy along for the ride, a gun dog becomes a hunter's best and most trusted friend.

In honor of those dogs and the bond that we have with them, check out these 21 inspiring photos of hunting dogs.
