Dog Breeds

The American Kennel Club (AKC) recognizes over 150 breeds of dogs in eight different general groups. Most dog breeds are simply cross breeds of two or more other types of dogs, but to be recognized by the AKC they have to have an established history of pure breeding.

As this site grows, the intent is to cover each of these dog breeds in sufficient detail to assist you in deciding which breed is right for you and your family. Among the more popular breeds are:

  • Australian Shepherd
  • Basset Hound
  • Beagle
  • Bichon Frise
  • Chihuahua
  • Chinese Shar-Pei
  • Dachshund
  • Dalmatian
  • Doberman Pinscher
  • German Shepherd
  • Golden Retriever
  • Labrador Retriever
  • Maltese
  • Pomeranian
  • Poodle
  • Pug
  • Rottweiler
  • Shih-Tzu
  • Siberian Husky
  • Yorkshire Terrier

These breeds have stood the test of time and are still highly popular in many countries. Many breeds such as those above have specific characteristics which appeal to owners.

For example the German Shepherd Dog is fiercely loyal and a fantastic guard dog. The Siberian Husky loves to pull a sled and is a great working dog.

The Australia Shepherd is perfect as a cattle dog and many farmers choose this breed. Chihuahuas are great if your living quarters are small and the Poodle is a highly intelligent breed.

All breeds have their quirks and their specialties. We hope you will learn alot about all breeds of dogs here so you can choose which one to bring home!

A person can learn a lot from a dog, even a loopy one like ours. Marley taught me about living each day with unbridled exuberance and joy, about seizing the moment and following your heart. He taught me to appreciate the simple things-a walk in the woods, a fresh snowfall, a nap in a shaft of winter sunlight. And as he grew old and achy, he taught me about optimism in the face of adversity. Mostly, he taught me about friendship and selflessness and, above all else, unwavering loyalty.
