Bullmastiff

The bullmastiff dog breed appeared as a result of experiments by breeders with mastiff and bulldog breeds. This happened because for the functions of tracking and hunting people (yes, you heard right) the mastiff, by itself, was good, but it lacked aggression and a dead grip. And the bulldog, despite the fact that he could very well grasp his victim, is not large enough and powerful, and therefore it is problematic for him to stop a person on the run.

Gamekeepers in England acted as breeders, who needed a dog that could catch and stop poachers in the forest. At the same time, the dog had to combine strength, speed, courage, large size and at the same time be silent enough not to scare the victim from afar with his bark, but, on the contrary, sneak up to it as close as possible, and then catch and tumble down with a quick jerk to the ground.

Welsh terrier (Welsh Terrier)

The Welsh Terrier, or, as it is also called, the Welsh Terrier, is considered one of the oldest terriers on the planet.

After all, every farm, stable, butcher’s and tavern shops all needed such a versatile and healthy animal.

Usually, this breed was classified and demonstrated at exhibitions as an Old English Terrier, however, Continue reading

Bichon Frize (French lapdog)

The Bichon Frize dog breed is a small, snow-white lump that looks more like plush toys. If you add a pink ribbon to the look, it will be simply impossible to distinguish between them. As often happens, scientists cannot say exactly how and where these dogs came from, however, there is a widespread opinion among dog breeders that the Bichon Frize came from a barbichon, also called a barbet.

The barbet was larger, and it is still unclear how it lost more than half its weight, decreased, and most importantly, with whom these dogs were bred to get modern Bichons. The first written records of the Bichon Frize dog breed began in the 14th century, when French marine magazines mentioned small white dogs living on the island of Tenerife, and that many French sailors took them with them to their homeland.
