DOG BREEDS

The deliberate selection of particular traits for breeding purposes has resulted in the hundreds of literally man-made pedigree breeds of dog we see today. The 25 breeds described in this site have been chosen on the basis of their worldwide popularity. They all make suitable family pets, though some are not advised for first-time owners or familieswith children, and some need the open spaces of the country rather than a cramped city apartment to enjoy life fully.

 

There are drawbacks to selective breeding. As many pedigree breeds have started from only one or teo bloodlines, the smallness of the gene pool means that inherited defects can quickly become established. The Breed Profiles summarize the principal health problems of each breed. To prevent such problemsfrom arising, all animals should be rigorously screened before being used for breeding. The crossbreed has fewer heallth problemms and makes a robust, loyal, and affectionate companion.
