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. Further work was already done by the rangers themselves, who usually followed the dog. Continue reading

German Shepherd

Traditionally, it is believed that the German shepherd breed appeared in 1899. In fact, this is only a clearly defined reference point, although similar dogs existed before. Moreover, a professional military man named Max von Stefanitz, who is credited with this merit, simply bought his first pet at the exhibition. Subsequently, he standardized the breed and succeeded in creating a successful breeding program.

Moreover, the first individual was a cross between a wolf and a dog, and von Stefanitz was crossing his male, bought at the show, named Hector Linsrain with the best local shepherd dogs. A little later, he renamed the purchased dog, giving him the nickname Horand von Grafet. Stefanitz traveled throughout Germany in search of the best dogs, examining in detail their character and appearance. Continue reading

Belgian Shepherd Tervuren

In fact, dogs like Belgian shepherds have long been growing and developing in this territory, however, at some point the dog breeders decided to conduct a study and identify the main types of dogs. However, it was the breeders who subsequently divided the Belgian Shepherd into four main types. In particular, the Tervuren breed has its own history.

The name of the breed, known in the homeland as Chien de Berger Belge, comes from the village of Tervuren, where a breeder named M.F. Corbil lived. At the beginning of the 20th century, he thought that it was possible to cross black and fawn dogs in order to standardize the modern tervuren.

Tervuren – the dog is really universal. Before the industrial era seriously captured Belgium, these pets were really needed by people, and first of all, by farmers. Just because there were still a lot of farms, and Continue reading
