Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Updated with the latest information on canine breeds recognized by the American Kennel Club, this lavishly illustrated volume is a treasure house of information for dog lovers, owners, breeders, and prospective buyers. It begins with a detailed discussion of breed evolution, focusing on the physical and behavioral traits that distinguish one canine breed from another. The book's main section profiles more than 150 breeds, arranged in the general categories specified by the AKC--Sporting Group, Hound Group, Working Group, Terrier Group, Toy Group, Non-Sporting Group, and Herding Group. Each profile tells how and why the breed was developed, and how selection to perpetuate specific traits affects a dog's suitability as a pet. Advice for prospective dog owners will help them be sure they are choosing a breed that is compatible with their own situation and needs. They will also find information on each breed's vulnerability to specific health problems, longevity, exercise needs, compatibility with children, and much more. Profuse illustrations include color photos of all listed breeds.

Book News Annotation:

Akitas require mental exercise every day. Airedale Terriers must hunt, no matter what, Havanese must live indoors despite a thick fur coat, and Tibetan Terriers are really family dogs, although they have been known to slip out and herd a yak or two. Coile provides descriptions of provenance, temperament, upkeep, health, and form and function, along with color photographs and quick-comparison charts for over 150 breeds, including those in the sporting, non-sporting, hound, working, terrier, toy, and herding groups. She also gives advice on choosing a dog for your family, and information about medical conditions, anatomy and breeding. We want them all, including the Neapolitan Mastiff who strongly resembles a casserole left out in the rain, and the Miniature Pinscher, who looks like he could bring down a freight train but is only about 11 inches tall.
