Dog Breeds

Find all Dog Breeds with Pictures with ease of reference over the different pages. The various breeds here have been grouped on the basis of their size. It is hoped that this will provide a useful starting point, especially for novice owners, who may be unfamiliar with the wide variety of dog breeds that are available in the different categories. Nevertheless, it is important to bear in mind that simply because a dog is large, this does not necessarily mean it will prove more active in domestic surroundings than a smaller breed. Indeed, whereas a Greyhound, for example, ranks amongst the most athletic of dogs, it proves quite sedentary within the home. Some smaller breeds, such as the Beagle, may actually be more frenetic here.
