The “most beautiful dog breed in the world” has been identified using the golden ratio.

A new study has claimed to use the golden ratio to identify the world’s most beautiful dog breed, with Scottish breeds taking the top spots.

The data was compiled for the price comparison and financial advice website money.co.uk – and reported by The National.

A pet insurance expert for the website, Salman Haqqi, said: “Of course, beauty is in the eye of the beholder and regardless of a dog’s breed ranking position, every dog , whatever its shape or size, must be enjoyed.”

The study used the golden ratio on images of the 138 most popular dog breeds in the UK and Ireland with images of the dog’s faces used to analyze the measurements.

These measurements included the length of the muzzle, the space between the eyes, the length of the dog’s head, the space between the top of the head and the eyes, and the space between the ears.

The Golden Ratio proportions were then calculated as a percentage out of 100 – where 100% represented the perfect Golden Ratio proportions.
