The main character traits

Afghan hound

For thousands of years, these fascinating four-legged friends have been considered a treasure in their original homeland, Afghanistan. Even today, the long-haired runners are special to many dog ​​lovers around the world.

Alaskan Malamute

Most dog lovers recognize it at first glance: The Alaskan Malamute, also affectionately called "Mali" or "Mally" by its fans, is one of the sled dog breeds of the icy north. Like the Siberian Husky, this breed has now found numerous followers in more moderate climates. But this enduring four-legged friend places very special demands on its owners.

Alopecis

The Alopekis is an extremely charming dog that appears in many variations on the outside. Outside of his native Greece, however, he is hardly known. We want to change that and introduce you to the balanced and family-friendly Greek in our portrait.

Old German Shepherd Dog

Strictly speaking, the “Old German Shepherd Dog” does not exist at all - at least not as an independent breed recognized by the FCI. In general, the term long-haired or long-haired German Shepherd Dogs. Regardless of these circumstances, the pretty German shepherd variant with the bushy hair and the loyal, friendly nature is extremely popular and in great demand as a family and companion dog.

American Akita

The American Akita developed after the end of World War II, when US soldiers took Japanese Akita back home with them and established their own independent breed there. Compared to its Japanese relatives, the American Akita is considered to be significantly larger and stronger. However, he has retained the hunting instinct of his Japanese ancestors to this day.

American Cocker Spaniel

In the USA the American Cocker Spaniel is one of the most popular dogs - in Europe it is (still) an insider tip for everyone who is looking for a friendly four-legged friend with the special charm of a (former) hunter.

American Foxhound

A gentle look, floppy ears, smooth, easy-care fur and a medium size: to many laypeople, an American Foxhound looks like the ideal companion for every dog ​​lover, from retirees to families with children.

In the following you will get some insights into the breed, which is almost unknown in Europe.

American Pit Bull Terrier

Although some dogs of a similar stature are called "Pit Pull" colloquially, only the American Pit Bull Terrier officially bears the name - and only in the USA, because European clubs do not recognize the breed as independent. Most of the "Pit Bulls" found in Europe are American Staffordshire Terriers or mixed breeds. What all pit pulls have in common, however, is that they have a bad reputation as a "fighting dog".

American Staffordshire Terrier

The American Staffordshire Terrier, also known as Amstaff for short, polarizes like no other breed. In some countries it is considered a dangerous attack dog, in others it is valued as a "nanny dog". This shows once again that the reason for aggressive dogs is often to be found at the other end of the leash. The breed deserves an open-minded look instead. Because behind the many prejudices there is a clever, dynamic and always loyal companion.

Anatolian Shepherd Dog

The powerful and defensive giant has a very peaceful and calm nature. As a guard dog, however, he is used to acting independently, which can quickly become a problem if kept incorrectly.

Barbet

Good-natured, clever and always ready for shared adventures: a barbet combines many positive traits that make it the ideal companion dog. However, dog lovers should not underestimate the fact that they need a lot of varied activities to be balanced.

Bearded Collie

Bearded Collie lovers agree: “If you don't know this breed of dog, you have to experience it!” And whoever has once experienced how a Bearded Collie with fluttering fur rushes happily across meadows, with what energy and joy it romps around and how attentive and attentive it is if he is at the same time vigilant for the wishes of his owner, he must simply fall for this original dog breed with its unmistakable charm.

Beauceron

The robust Beauceron with the short, dense coat needs an experienced dog owner, who trains him with a lot of love and consistency, due to his self-confidence and his dominant nature.

Bedlington Terrier

Visually, it is reminiscent of a sheep, but under the fluffy look of the Bedlington Terrier there is a clever hunter who has it as a fist behind his lop ears in the woods and fields. In their home, owners can look forward to an affectionate and patient four-legged friend. The Bedlington Terrier is a dog for people who like a robust character.

Border collie

The intelligent and demanding Border Collie with the medium-length or stick-haired coat is a herding dog through and through - so it is only suitable to a limited extent as a family dog.

Border terrier

Visually inconspicuous, the Border Terrier is an ideal dog for everyone who appreciates a robust, enterprising companion.

Briard

The elegant, medium-sized Briard with long, twisted hair and friendly demeanor is a popular family dog ​​today. However, due to his stubbornness and temperament, the former herding dog belongs in experienced hands.

Cairn Terrier

The rugged Cairn Terrier is one of the oldest hunting terriers in Scotland and has retained its rustic appearance, courage and self-confidence to this day. Instead of chasing foxes and badgers under piles of rubble, the small, friendly daredevil now acts primarily as a companion and family dog.

Cane Corso

Confident and relaxed - this is how a balanced Cane Corso Italiano looks. Unofficially, the breed, which comes from southern Italy, is also known under the name "Italian mastiff" or "Italian moloss". It is slowly gaining popularity outside of Italy and is particularly suitable for sporty owners with a lot of space and dog experience.

The world's smallest dog breed has the most famous masters in the world and one of the highest life expectancies. The Chihuahua is a superlative dog that feels at home in the handbags of Madonna, Britney Spears or Paris Hilton. The Mexican pedigree dog is much more than a luxurious lap dog.

Chow Chow

Golden brown fur with a mighty mane, compact stature - a Chow Chow impresses with its majestic appearance alone. But the primitive dog breed, which is one of the oldest in the world, is not only gorgeous to look at, but is also characterized by a very special character: Some say that Chow Chows are more like a cat than a dog due to their idiosyncrasy. Anyone who has made friends with a representative of this breed knows that the dogs not only have the appearance, but also the heart of a lion.

Ciobănesc Românesc Mioritic

Dogs of the Ciobănesc Românesc Mioritic type, or Mioritic for short, are common in Romania, because here they are popular working dogs of shepherds. Outside of their homeland they are very rare and efforts towards standardized breeding are still young.

Deerhound

The Deerhound, also known as the Scottish Deer Dog, was used to hunt deer back in the Middle Ages. Although the breed has since lost its original field of work, it still has the same speed, agility and fearlessness. Thanks to their gentle nature, the large greyhounds with their coarse fur are popular family dogs today.

German Mastiff

The Great Dane is one of the largest dog breeds in the world. But despite their imposing appearance and distinctive lips, Great Danes are considered to be very friendly, calm and leaning dogs, who like to underestimate their own weight when cuddling with their humans.

German pinscher

Right in the middle instead of just being there: The once popular stable dog and rat hunter, who used to be in charge of almost every farm, is still the focus of attention as a family dog ​​today.
