AKC and UKC classify breeds into "groups" by their original purpose.
Northern or Spitz types may eventually be sub-divided.
Explore the Group descriptions below, or choose from the
menu bar above to decide which breed best fits your
lifestyle and interests. If you already know just which breed you prefer, use the drop-down
list of all breeds!

Sporting Breeds

Bird dogs hunt and retrieve by scent and sight

Spaniel or Pointer,
Flusher or Setter,
Sporting dogs are
the hunter's go-getter!


Scent and Sight hounds hunt feather or fur

By day or by night,
to tree or to ground,
there's nothing so sweet
as the voice of a hound.

Working Dogs

Service work, police, draft, and protection dogs

Watchman at night,
companion by day,
he does your bidding
at work or at play


Courageous hunters and faithful friends

No fear, no pain,
no game's too rough,
a working terrier
is dog enough!

Toy Breeds

Diminutive, delightful and utterly devoted

A Toy is a toy, a
companion and more,
a treasure, a joy,
and a dog to adore


Utility dogs are multi-purpose, companions

No look-alikes here,
but tricks they can do.
Your very best friend
is rugged and true.

Herding Dogs

Pastoral breeds protect and control stock

They move, gather
and faithfully guard
cattle and sheep and
the kids in the yard.

Miscellaneous/Rare Breeds

Often foreign or newly developed

Shower me not
with gems so rare,
give me instead,
a diamond with hair


They are types or species more than "breeds"

Old as the dingo,
wild as the wind,
wise as coyote,
Man's very best friend

Toy Fox Terrier Dog & Puppy Breed Information
Descended from the Fox Terrier and Chihuahua, this American origonal is known in the south as a "fiest dog" and he is indeed fiesty, confused about being a terrier in a toy dog's body! At about 6 pounds and 10" he's sturdy, cobby, and extremely agile. His hardiness, handy size and incredible intelligence made him popular with circus performers and farmers. He is absolutely devoted to his owner, brimming with courage, and is the perfect companion/watchdog, nothing escapes his attention. AKA Ameri-Toy and American Toy Terrier
