Let’s Meet the England Players’ Dogs

by ProDog Raw

With the buzz surrounding the current England team and their sterling (pardon the pun) performance of late, you’d be forgiven for the constant chants and quotes of of “It’s Coming Home”. We don’t mind a game of football here at ProDog and are quite excited to see how far the team go. But, you know us… we love our dogs more and behind some of these players, are their loyal and adoring dogs who quite frankly don’t care if they win or lose. We meet the England players’ dogs – past and present!

Kalvin Phillips – Poodle Cross

The elegant, proud and clever traits of the Poodle make it an intelligent member of the team. Originally a water dog, they are used to working hard. Even if they don’t give that impression sometimes.

Dean Henderson – Rottweiler

A robust working breed, the Rottweiler is often used as a protection/guard dog. It actually descends from the mastiff of the Roman Legions. With skills in tracking, obedience and herding, we think they’d make a great defender in an all doggy 11.

Jesse Lingard – Doberman

An athletic breed, the Doberman is a protection dog favoured by celebrities for keeping them safe. Add this handsome dog to the back four and you have a strong defence.

Harry Kane – Labrador Retrievers

The team captain is the proud owner of a couple of labs as pictured here in this charming photo of his daughter. Of course you want a couple of labs on the team to chase down that ball and bring it home!

Jordan Pickford – Cavapoo

Requiring about 30-60 minutes of exercise today, we think the Cavapoo would make a great second half substitution to inject new life into the team.

Eric Dier – Labrador

The reliable and steady Labrador that wants the ball! they don’t call them retrievers for nothing. If you want a dog that’s going to perform on the pitch then you want a lab. But which position would you play him?

Tyrone Mings – Rottweiler

Another Rottweiler (well they are a popular breed). This time it’s the turn of Tyrone Mings. So, thats 3 of the defence sorted!

Harry McGuire – Miniature Poodle Cross

When he isn’t practising his skills with his England team mates, Harry has another training partner, perfect for practising those passes with. These miniature athletes excel in obedience, so would have no trouble taking instructions. In agility, they are graceful and strong. We can just see this little fella taking the ball down the outside of the pitch and lining it up for a pass to a member of the squad.

John Stones – Doberman

Dobermans and Rottweilers are among the favourites with the England team. Mainly chosen for their defence capabilities we are guessing. Another gorgeous Dobe to add to the line up.

Mason Mount – Poodles

Poodles feature a lot in this list. If it’s not Doberman and Rottweilers, then it’s Poodles. This is good news because these agile dogs can provide some speed and attack combined with grace and strength.

Marcus Rashford – Cane Corso

A breed of mastiff, the Cane Corso is a formidable dog used for protection and tracking. They are even tempered, highly trainable, reserved and stable. In fact, with these traits, we wonder whether this breed would make the dog squad goalkeeper?

Raheem Sterling – Rottweiler

Ooh, we think we have our back four with the addition of another Rottweiler to the squad. This time it’s Raheem’s dog and if he’s as reliable as his owner, thats a winning combo.

Trent Alexander-Arnold – Frenchies

We love a French Bulldog here at ProDog and we are pleased to see them featuring in the England dog squad! These nippy little dogs may not be able to stretch to the full 90 minutes but they will certainly cause some upset to the opposition on the pitch.

Ben Chilwell – Doberman

Another Doberman to add to the team but which of the Dobes and Rotties will we include in our 11 dog squad? Like Gareth Southgate, we have the same issue of having a lot of depth to this team and only being able to pick 11!

Jack Grealish – Cockapoo

These bouncy and energetic dogs are just what you need when you need to inject a little bit of life into the game. No surprise then that this dog belongs to Grealish!

The Legends

Of course, while the above players are the men of the moment. There are many that came before and gave use some great sporting moments. Here’s just a few of those we could find having fun with their dogs.

David Beckham – Cocker Spaniel

Be warned ladies, this one is a bit of an ‘aaahhh’ moment. We couldn’t leave out Becks and one of his Spaniel’s now could we. This dog is going to want to be on for the whole 90 minutes and extra time! And even then he still won’t be worn out!.

Alan Shearer

While he may not be the scariest looking dog, this little fella’s owner certainly struck fear into opponents with 9 goals scored for England in Euro tournaments, beaten only by team mate Lineker and equalled by Kane in the Ukraine game.

Rio Ferdinand – Chihuahua and German Shepherd Dogs

Rio already had the Chihuahua but recently bought 2 German Shepherd dogs to protect his growing family. With the robust protection skills of these 2 GSD’s plus the nippiness of that Chihuahua, we have the middle 3 sorted!.

John Terry – Belgian Malinois

This dog will happily chase a ball around all day long! We have first hand experience watching Shinga, the dog from Dogs4Wildlife that we sponsor.

So, which of these celebrity dogs would feature in your Canine squad? And if WAGs are wives and girlfriends, what is the doggie equivalent? Win or lose, we think they are all pawsome!
