Can you lead us to the correct answer?

Fancy yourself as a bit of super sleuth? Reckon you’re a solid canine out of ten when it comes to conundrums? Well, why not paws for a moment and try this surprisingly tricky puzzle out for size? It’s definitely left our rover reporters scratching their heads trying to reliever answer.

If you hadn’t already guessed from all the terrible puns, it’s dog-based. On the surface it seems incredibly simple – merely find the word ‘dog’ in the word search below, but it has left many people feeling exceedingly ruff, as they’re convinced it’s a trick question.

They mistakenly claim that either a) the word isn’t there (it is), or b) the smartarse answer is: ‘It’s right there – below the box…’

The seemingly innocuous little puzzle has done viral on Reddit, and for good reason too. If you can find the hidden D-O-G – especially if it’s in a matter of seconds or minutes, rather than hours – then it sets you apart from the vast majority of people who were left flummoxed.

Good luck, but be warned – you’ll get so obsessed you’ll be like a dog with a bone…
