I Have The Facts!
Are Some Facts About The
Origin, Use &
Personalities Of A Few
Of Your Favorite Dog
Jack Russell Terrier :
breed was developed in the last
century by an English clergyman,
Parson Jack Russell, a great breeder
and well-known dog lover.
: Courageous, merry, devoted,
: Like all small terriers, it has
been used for hunting small game in
its lair. It was especially
appreciated for the ability and
rapidity with which it could burrow
into even small holes. A rather rare
terrier, it has passed into the
ranks of the companion dog.
: Its origin is controversial: was
it developed in France, Germany,
Denmark, or the ancient Piedmont? In
any event, it is certain that the
poodle is descended from a now
nearly extinct French water dog, the
: Fundamentally good-natured, most
intelligent, bold, cheerful,
: In France, this breed is known as
a name derived from canard
(duck), because in the past the
poodle was an outstanding retriever
of game from marshes, an ability it
inherited from its ancestor the
Due to its attractive personality,
its beauty, and its intelligence,
however, the poodle quickly passed
into the ranks of the companion dog.
It has excellent hearing and a
noteworthy sense of orientation.
More than most other dogs, it can
understand the meaning of the spoken
word. It is patient during bathing
and clipping and loves to play with
children. It will not accept,
however, heavy-handed training.
: There is total disagreement
concerning the origin of this breed.
It is certainly very ancient, since
traces of it are found on Egyptian
bas-reliefs and Hellenic friezes. In
1700, a dog known as the Bengal
pointer, similar to the Dalmatian,
existed in England, calling into
question the Dalmatian's Yugoslavian
Serene, loyal, independent but
domesticated, extremely sensitive.
It needs human company without which
it is likely to become melancholy.
It is fond of playing with children.
It has an excellent memory and can
remember for years any bad treatment
it has received.
: In the Middle Ages, it was used as
a hound. In the nineteenth century,
it became a "carriage dog" and its
popularity shot up. It followed its
master with exceptional reliability
and hardiness whether its master was
on foot, on horseback, or in a
carriage. Later, it found wide
acceptance as a companion dog that
could also act as a guard dog. It is
clean and neat, avoids puddles, and
loves soap and water.
: This is a very ancient breed. It
is probably descended from the Arab
greyhound, the Sloughi, which was
brought to Europe by the
Phoenicians. Over the course of
centuries, English breeders have
developed a fabulous hunting and
racing dog embodying all the needed
sporting and moral qualities.
: It is very intelligent, but its
character is often undervalued
because of its reserved behavior
toward its master and toward
strangers. It is sensitive,
courageous, loyal, aristocratic,
: Its greatest gift is its speed.
Centuries ago it was used in the
hunting of deer and wild boar; it
could catch them and pull them down
without stopping. It is also an
incorrigible enemy of domestic
animals, especially cats and geese.
Today, the greyhound is mainly used
on racetracks, chasing mechanical
rabbits. This sport is especially
popular in Anglo-Saxon countries.
The greyhound is not adaptable to
apartment life. It absolutely
requires long runs daily.
