Desmond Morris presents here the ultimate reference book on domestic dog breeds. For over 180 officially recognised pedigree breeds he proves a detailed history, and a full description of its qualities and characteristics, together with beautiful photographs of typical examples of the breed. Many breeds have obscure origins, bur Dr Morris has researched these with meticulous care and presents a fascinating account of the conflicting theories. As a leading expert on animal behaviour he also explores why dogs, and particular breeds, behave as they do. For each breed a list of colour forms is provided, together with the names and addresses of its breed club. No one who owns, or hopes to own, a pedigree dog - and certainly no one professionally involved in the world of dog - can afford to be without this magnificently produced and illustrated handbook.
