This is an illustrated pocket-sized guide to more than 130 breeds of dog. Originally kept as hunters and workers, dogs have evolved in history to occupy a unique position in the human world, unparalleled by any other successfully domesticated animal. For each entry, this introduction to man's best friend provides a full-color photograph and description of the breed; details on size, lifespan, and identifying features; and notes on the breed's character and suitability as a pet. In addition there is advice on choosing a puppy, nutrition and feeding, training and kennelling, and showing. A section on dog trivia and a glossary of appropriate terms complete this easy-to-use guide.
