known as the "Westie," is known for its friendly, strong-willed
personality and a remarkably bright white coat. Said to be "all
terrier," this breed possesses a large amount of spunk,
determination and devotion stuffed into a compact little body.
 The confident Westie excels in a variety of AKC events, from
 conformation to agility to obedience. The West Highland White Terrier is said to
    originate from Poltalloch, Scotland, and due to this, was originally known as
    the Poltalloch Terrier. He was also sometimes referred to as the Roseneath
    Terrier, after the Duke of Argyll’s estate. The Westie was first shown in the
    United States in 1906 under the Roseneath name, but this was changed in 1909
    and he has been known as the West Highland White Terrier ever since.

   The breed originated in Germany as a water
    retriever. The stylish "Poodle clip" was designed by
    hunters to help the dogs move through the water
    more efficiently. The patches of hair left on the
    body are meant to protect vital organs and joints
    which are susceptible to cold. The Standard variety
    is the oldest of the three varieties. The Miniature
    variety may have been used for truffle hunting. The
    Toy Poodle was often used in performances and
   The original Poodles were water dogs used for
    retrieving. To this day, their conformation and the
    texture and pattern of their coats reflect the
    purposes for which they were bred. Miniatures and
    Toys have been bred down from the larger Poodles
    and they exhibit the same general characteristics.
    The Poodle is an active, intelligent, ruggedly-built
    dog which is at the same time elegant and refined.
    Well-bred Poodles in all three varieties have steady,
    calm nerves, hardy constitutions and they can be

    expects to be treated as one. Each one is a
    character and for that reason they make wonderful

    or Tibetan mountain dog and

   The Bulldog is the 10th most popular dog. Remember that Bulldogs and
    heat do not mix well so make your Bulldog an inside dog and see to it

    ready for him. Bulldogs get along great with other pets and children
    as a general rule. They enjoy a soft couch and a belly rub, love and

    packs of hounds. Larger hounds tracked
    deer, while smaller ones went after
    rabbits. These were the first Beagles. The
    origin of the name "Beagle" may have
    been derived from the French term
    "be’geule," referring to the baying voice of
    the hounds when in pursuit of game, or
    possibly the diminutive size of the hound.
