Understanding a dog breed is essential before you bring a given dog into your house. Looking at a mix breed? Then it’s highly advised to understand the suspected mix of breeds too. Genetics play a big role in what makes up a dog – from health to behavior to intelligence to how hard it will be to train him or her!

I will start posting breed outlines as I go through and learn more about certain breeds.

Check back later for more.  If you have any requests, please contact me at jen (at) dogthusiast. Even better, if you have photos that I could use (that you took yourself) please let me know and I will attribute you in the PDF.
