On most major platforms, the emoji portrays the stylized face of a dog sticking its tongue out as viewed from the front. The coloration and breed of the dog varies by platform. On Facebook, the emoji displays a more realistic depiction of a Shiba Inu, the dog breed used in the popular Doge meme, which inspired Dogecoin. The Google, Samsung, WhatsApp, Twitter, and Facebook versions of the emoji appear to use the same dog that is depicted in each platformโ€™s version of the Dog emoji ๐Ÿ•.ย ย

Like the Dog emoji ๐Ÿ•, the Dog Face emoji ๐Ÿถ is also used to metaphorically refer to dogs when using common idiomatic expressions such as Every dog has its dayย and You canโ€™t teach an old dog new tricks.
