Affinpincher

Today it’s hard to say how many years the Affenpincher breed has exactly counted, although official documents refer us only to the 19th century. In fact, the closest ancestors of these dogs are depicted in the paintings of Dutch artists as early as the 15th century, and this adds an additional 400 years to the official date. Dogs in the paintings have a stiff coat, beard and the same small size.

The question arises – why did the artists even depict these dogs, because they are not particularly remarkable? The answer to this question lies in the agility and character of the animals. At that time, they were mainly used for hunting rodents, especially large rats, which not even every cat could handle.

Over the following centuries, until the beginning – the middle of the 20th century, a small wire-haired pinscher with a restless and rather evil disposition was a favorite pet of every grocery store owner, owner Continue reading

Basenji

The Basenji dog breed is, in fact, a bit of a domesticated wolf. Of course, the wolf and this domesticated dog, animals are different, but very close. After all, a basenji is a wild dog that has not far gone from its ancestors, or rather brothers, wolves. Moreover, this breed was domesticated a long time ago, perhaps several thousand years ago, back in the days of ancient civilizations and the first people.

The Basenji dog breed was born and developed on the African continent, and the locals greatly appreciated, and still appreciate, these truly amazing animals. In ancient times, there were special hunters who hunted for basenji, and even now, residents of remote areas say that hunting for basenji is more complicated and valuable than hunting for a wife. Apparently, there is some truth in this.

Aborigines appreciated dogs for their excellent hunter qualities, incredible bestial flair, excellent sense of Continue reading

Basset Hound (Basset)

The breed of dogs Basset Hound is very recognizable, these dogs can not be confused with others. Their low stature, extremely long ears, unhurried manner of behavior and wrinkles on the face are familiar to many from various films, cartoons and television series.

As an example, one can cite the well-known lieutenant Colombo from the television series of the same name, and his dog named “Dog” (the dog is a great name for a dog, isn’t it?). This basset hound was lazy, had an independent character and good nature. This breed originated in France, however, modern bassets are somewhat different, as they were bred separately from French individuals brought to England.

The French ancestors of modern bassets came from laconic dogs, which, in turn, led to the emergence of Continue reading

English bulldog

The dog of the breed Bulldog is a regular participant in cartoons, movies, TV shows. These animals can be seen on a variety of promotional materials, on the emblems of sports teams – thanks to their colorful appearance and specific history, bulldogs are by far one of the most recognizable dogs.

The first mention of this breed dates back to 1500 – in those days and later, bulldogs were widely used in bloody entertainment called baiting bulls with dogs. Now it seems to us wildness, but in those distant years, and, up to the XIX century, many believed that this makes the meat of the bull more tender.

These unsubstantiated views were extremely widespread, even to the extent that there was even a law in some areas of Great Britain that obligated butchers to poison the bull with dogs before slaughter. Based on the logic that it supposedly “dilutes the blood” – a complete heresy, of course. The truth is that the Continue reading

English cocker spaniel

The Cocker Spaniel is a breed widely known throughout the world, and in England these dogs have been known since the early Middle Ages. Cute animals, which now play the role of companions, in those ancient times were mainly used during the hunt for woodcocks and other birds.

However, some monarchs loved their spaniels so much that they considered them primarily as companions, without parting with them either in bed or at council meetings – this made King Karl ll famous. He even issued a special law that allowed him to appear with a spaniel in any state institutions. Despite the fact that other dogs were strictly prohibited from entering such places.

By and large, the English Spaniel is not much different from its counterpart – the American Cocker Spaniel. In fact, many are interested in what the difference is, and the only definite answer to this is size. Continue reading
