Breeding + English

  • Always on the tips of his toes in anticipation of the next big chase, game, or adventure, the Jack Russell Terrier has more energy than many pet owners can handle. Super active with a loud bark and an unquenchable prey drive, Jack Russells will keep you busy thinking up challenges to keep them out of trouble.

  • Chins are gentle dogs that need and want lots of togetherness. They do well with other dogs as playmates. Although loving and eager to please, they're curious and “into” things, conducting their own research. Chins cannot be ignored – they won't let you, tailing owners like a canine private eye. They're sweet and loving with the elderly and infirm, making great lap warmers and therapy dogs.

  • This breed is known for his gentle, affectionate, friendly disposition. Unlike many breeds, Keeshonden (the plural for this breed) aren't one-person dogs; they are equally devoted to all family members, and can be equally effusive in greeting friends of the family. True to their roots, they also will sound the alarm if a stranger dares to approach family territory.

  • Fiercely loyal, surprisingly comical, full of energy, and brimming with affection for his friends, the Kerry Blue is a classic terrier type. Kerries are sturdy enough to play with responsible kids, big enough to intimidate burglars, energetic enough to be a good exercise buddy, vocal enough to play watchdog, and companionable enough to share your life.

  • Raising kittens can be an extremely gratifying experience or it may produce profound disappointment. The following information should help increase your chances of success when caring for young kittens.

  • Few breeds can elicit the double-takes that this walking mound of white dreadlocks inspires, but the mystique of the Komondor is far more than fur-deep. This is a tough character, ready to serve and protect, but not necessarily in that order.

  • Who says you cannot be a giant, intimidating guardian dog, and also pretty? The Kuvasz says so, and who is going to argue? This pretty white dog with the sweet face and tough nature makes an effective flock guardian and also a protective companion. The question is, can you handle her?

  • The Lab is the number one dog in popularity for a reason. The sweet, faithful lab will play fetch and entertain kids until the last one is worn out and then bring the ball to you. And for someone who wants a companion on hikes or romps in the park, one needs look no further. As long as people do not mind dog hair on the sofa, the good black dress and in the coffee, a Lab is easy care.

  • Brimming with charm, an infectious zest for life, and energy most people can only sit back and envy, the Lakeland Terrier makes a great family pet, keeping everybody entertained with his curiosity and the many adventures he manufactures for himself.

  • Gentle, calm and friendly, these good-natured watchers make excellent family dogs. They are affectionate and incredibly patient with children, love to be included in family activities, and will wait patiently if you stop to talk on an outing. They are calm indoors and their affectionate personality makes them excellent therapy dogs.
