Hi, I would like to welcome you to the dog breed dictionary. I am very excited to have the opportunity to provide you with dog pictures, dog videos, and comprehensive profiles on man’s best friend, the K9.
The site’s primary focus is on AKC recognized dogs, but will eventually touch upon the more obscure and rare dog breeds as the dictionary grows.
The canines have been sorted into distinct groups that have been coined by the American Kennel Club.
Being a pet parent, I know that choosing a dog breed can be a difficult decision to make. I can’t make the decision for you, but I certainly can do my best to help you make an educated, and informed decision.
Oh, who am I kidding, you are just here for the pictures! We have lots of dog pictures as well as dog videos!
Pet adoption really is an awesome thing that I would strongly encourage. Some of the sweetest pets I’ve ever come across were rescued from shelters, like those run by the SPCA.
It is a common misconception that all stray dogs are mutts. There are a lot of purebred dogs that are in need of a good home. All you have to do is pick up the phone and call your nearest pet rescue to figure that one out. It is also worth mentioning that mutts can be wonderful dogs. They are often more healthy than purebred dogs.
Shelter and rescue dogs go through an extensive evaluation period to see if they are suitable for adoption. They are tested for food aggression, dog aggression, and how friendly they are with children among other metrics.
