100+ Beautiful Vintage Dog Illustrations in the Public Domain

Who’s a good boy then? Since the earliest records of human life, there’s been evidence of humans and dogs sharing a relationship. So, it’s no surprise then, that there’s a wealth of vintage dog illustrations for us to choose from! From the stunningly detailed chromolithographs from Cassell’s Book Of The Dog, to the ridiculously cute Louis Wain dogs-in-hats portraits that you never knew you needed in your life, we’ve got you covered.

You find St Bernard illustrations, drawings of terriers, Labradors in art, illustrations of English setters, greyhounds, basset hounds, mastiffs, and more!

Everything you’ll find below is a vintage dog illustration download! And as always, because we only source images that are in the public domain, you can use these however you like.

Here are just a few things you could do with the dog illustrations you’ll find here.
