Dog Mailbox Covers

by ologsinquito

Magnetized mailbox covers of different dog breeds are available online.

Sometimes, when you're driving along a country road, you spot a creatively decorated mailbox with a beautiful scene of a dog, and you wish you had something so clever on your own property.

But your current mailbox is in good working order, and there's no need to replace it.

So, how can you dress up your mailbox, without knocking it down and installing a new one, or hiring an artist to customize it for you.

Actually, there's an easy and very inexpensive solution, if you want to showcase a specific canine breed. All you do is select a magnetized cover printed with the dog of your choice.

A surprisingly large selection of these are available online, and I've chosen a few that you can view below.

Golden Retriever Mailbox Cover

Golden retrievers are among the most beautiful dogs in the animal kingdom. Their good looks, combined with a pleasant, agreeable and laid-back disposition have made them the third most popular breed in America.

The mailbox cover below features a golden relaxing on a beach, just as the sun's beginning to either rise or set. This cover, and all of the others shown on this page, are made in America.

Shih Tzu Mailbox Cover

These tiny dogs were bred in China, although, according to one source, may have originally come from Tibet.

The name Shih Tzu in Chinese means lion dog, and some thing these pups were selectively bred to resemble statues of lions that stood outside "guarding" imperial palaces.

Shih Tzu's arrived in Europe before they came to America, with soldiers returning from World War II. The breed was officially recognized by the American Kennel Club in 1969. As of a few years ago, this was the 15th most popular breed in the United States.

Bassett Hound Mailbox Cover

Bassett hounds have a keen sense of smell, topped only by bloodhounds, from which they descended. Low to the ground, bassetts were originally bred to hunt rabbits.

These dogs make very good family dogs because they are playful and like to interact with their human companions.

Dalmation Mailbox Cover

The Dalmation breed originates from the Dalmation region of what is now Croatia. They have distinctive spots, either black or liver-colored, set against a white coat. Despite their short coats, these dogs are known to shed a great deal of hair. The upside, though, is that they don't have a distinct dog smell as strong as some of the other breeds.

Newborns are born white, and their spots don't appear until they are a couple of weeks old.

They seem to be the latest thing. It's easier than having your mailbox painted.
