Hungarian Squeezed (Hungarian Pointing Dog)

The Hungarian survived comes from the ancient hunting dogs that were used by the Magyars in the hunt, this is a kind of Hungarian pointer. The ancestors of these pets lived on the territory of Hungary more than 1000 years ago, and the modern survived, of course, is somewhat different from its predecessors, but there are much more similarities than differences.

In fact, it’s hard to say exactly how long ago these dogs appeared on the territory of Hungary, since today experts draw conclusions only from the available evidence. One of them is an engraving of the 10th century, where a smooth-haired, long-legged, thin dog is very similar to a pogo, depicted with a huntsman. Another very noteworthy evidence is the chapter in the manuscript book on the falconry, which, together with the description, depicts a dog that is almost identical to the Hungarian surviving.

Giant Schnauzer

Giant Schnauzer is a breed of dogs that originates from the ancient shepherd dogs of Germany. The lands of Bavaria and Württemberg are considered the birthplace of the Giant Schnauzer, but now historians cannot say exactly when exactly this breed arose. There are several theories of origin, and the most common is that the Giant Schnauzer was bred to help herders.

The Giant Schnauzer most likely arose from the cross of a shepherd, a black German Great Dane and a schnauzer with large smooth-haired dogs. Possibly, the Flanders Bouvier also took part in the formation of the breed. He was known as Munich and was widely distributed in Bavaria and Württemberg.

For several hundred years, these dogs were used not only as shepherds, but also for other purposes. In particular, for protection and even hunting. We can say that the Giant Schnauzer is a universal dog that 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.
