Function Overriding In C++

Function overriding in C++ occurs when a derived class defines the same function as its base class. It’s implemented to accomplish polymorphism at runtime. It allows you to create a customised implementation of a function that is already available in the base class.

int main(void) {  
   Dog d = Dog();;  
   return 0;
