The ultimate reference book on dog breeds with over 600 illustrations.
Never before has such a comprehensive guide to the dog breeds of the world been compiled. For the first time renowned writer Desmond Morris presents an authoritative look at the origins and characteristics of every recognised breed.
The dogs are divided into four main categories: sporting dogs (retrievers, pointers, setters, hunting dogs, etc), livestock dogs (sheep herders, cattle herders, etc), service dogs (household companions, rescue dogs, transport dogs, etc) and independents (feral and wild dogs).
From the Affenpinscher to the Zanzibar Greyhound this is a meticulous reference work and a fascinating enlightening account of the diversity of dogs.
