All About Weimaraner Dogs and Puppies
To the untrained eye, the Weimaraner is wrapped in silvery velvet. His lustrous coat and dignified expression hint at his noble lineage. The Weimaraner is a recent breed from strictly guarded German stock. He was bred for a life of undiluted comfort, both while working as a hunter dog and while relaxing in the comfort of his owner’s home.
Since his arrival in North America in the early 1900’s the Weimaraner has made a name for himself as an affectionate and energetic breed. His popularity as a companion dog continues to grow in North America and throughout Europe.
All About Samoyed Dogs and Puppies
The Samoyed is a spectacular working dog of ancient stock. Originally domesticated and used by Siberian nomads, the Samoyed has worked on all continents, including the Antarctic’s extreme climate. He has forged his way through the most inhospitable terrains and climates and has emerged as a beloved family pet.
With his roots in northern Siberia, the Samoyed is often pure white with glistening silver tips. Some Samoyed are cream and biscuit, but none are darker. His thick, lustrous coat and fetching smile can warm even the coldest heart and even the bed it sleeps in!
All About Dachshund Dogs and Puppies
This is a general dog breed description of the Dachshund. Individual dogs within a breed may vary in appearance, temperament, and behavior.
Often called “weiner dogs,” Dachshunds are spirited little dogs with long bodies and short legs. Dachshunds are an ancient breed, although the modern versions are of German origin. They were prized by royal courts throughout Europe for their ability to hunt, chase and flush badger and other burrowing animals. These small, fearless dogs have been known to take on larger animals, like foxes, as well.
All About Rottweiler Dogs and Puppies
The Rottweiler is a very robust and beautiful dog. Powerful and fiercely loyal, they are believed to have ties back to the ancient Romans, where their ancestors helped to drive cattle on the long war marches. Today’s Rottweiler no longer drives cattle, but has instead become a favored companion animal, particularly in the United States. Owning a Rottweiler requires a great commitment and a lot of responsibility, however, and it’s important to research this breed, and your individual dog, very carefully.
All About Poodle Dogs and Puppies
The Poodle is perhaps one of the most easily recognized breeds of dog in the world. Known for his unique coat (and the styles in which he is clipped), superior intelligence and for the ease in which he learns new tricks, it’s no wonder why this dog has captivated people for centuries. While commonly mistaken to be a silly dog, due to the frou-frou styles in which his coat is often trimmed, few who have had the luxury of meeting a Poodle mistake him for a frivolous pet for long.
All About Boxer Dogs and Puppies
The Boxer is an energetic, fun loving dog whose ancestors are German mastiff-type dogs, the Bullenbeiszer and Barenbeiszer. The dogs were bred indiscriminately. Over time, the Bullenbeiszer became smaller and was called the Brabanter. These strong and agile dogs were used by the elite for hunting wild boar, deer and bear. The dogs’ ears were cropped to avoid being injured by the game animals. Their strong jaws enabled them to seize and hold the prey for the hunter, while his recessed nose allowed him to breathe.
In about 1830 the Brabanter was bred with the English Bulldog ancestor. These dogs were white in color and often used by cattle dealers to round up livestock. Because of their ability to learn tricks easily, and their clownish nature, they were also popular circus dogs.
By the early 1900’s the Boxer was well established in North America and was soon recognized by the American Kennel Club. Since that time, the handsome Boxer has grown steadily in popularity to become one of the most widely adopted pets in America.
All About Yorkshire Terrier Dogs and Puppies
Often called the Yorkie or Yorkie dog, the Yorkshire Terrier has enjoyed the status of a favored companion for roughly 200 years. Considered to be the second most popular breed of dog in the world (the Labrador Retriever being the first), his is a story of rags-to-riches. To tell the story of the Yorkshire Terrier is to reveal how one little hero scaled the social barriers to become a pampered pet and a star of the silver screen. There is little hope of ignoring this adorable little canine when he turns on the cuteness and demands your attention.
All About Basset Hound Dogs and Puppies
Basset Hounds can be the ideal choice for individuals and families who are looking for a gentle and affectionate pet that loves people and craves human company. You don’t need a big yard to keep your Basset Hound happy. All your pet needs from you is love, attention, and affection. If you are ready to open your heart to a Basset, your new dog will surely return the favor.
Pekingese Dogs and Puppies
The Pekingese Dog, one of the world’s most recognizable breeds of small dog, was once the sacred dog of China. The Pekingese Dog derives its name from the Tang Dynasty (619 – 907 AD) and their regal lineage is reflected in the Peke’s modern day character. For the Pekingese, exercise is a leisurely affair; short strolls will suffice.
Conversely, grooming the Pekingese Dog is anything but leisurely. Dedicated and regular attention is essential to avoid a knotted ball of fluff with a humorless constitution.
The Pekingese Dog is a breed for dog devotees. The grooming can be laborious, but the benefits can be great. The Peke’s occasional flirtations with humor and its attentiveness to his master can conquer the hearts of even the most reluctant groomer.
