What if your town had a furry local tour guide seen on Street View?

Covering an area of only 28 square miles, the tiny island of Ulleung-gun is off the eastern coast of South Korea.

While capturing images of the island for its visual map, Daum, Korea’s main search engine, was given its very own tour guide to show them around the island, specifically the off-road areas.

But it wasn’t your average tour guide – this one had four legs and a beautiful golden coat. All the photos taken of the island featured a Golden Retriever.

In fact, this pupper can be seen in nearly every photo along this island’s trail!

If you ask me, there’s no I would rather have show me around a destination.

Here’s to hoping more places start to include local dogs as guides in their visual map images.

You can explore the island’s streets here.
