When you hear the name of a dog breed, can you get a mental picture of what the dog looks like? When you see a dog in your neighborhood, at a park, or in your community, do you immediately know what breed it is? If not, this book will make it possible for you to be able to identify dog breeds by name or by sight. Pictures of dogs from Afghan Hounds to Yorkshire Terriers fill the pages that will have you guessing the answers or confidently identifying the breed in the picture. With the answer (on the next page) is a brief description of common traits of that breed. If you happen to be looking for a dog, this book may help you to know which breed is best suited for you. Some breeds require extensive exercise and stimulation. Other breeds prefer your lap or a soft cushion. Some breeds are known to be great with small children, or living in small spaces, other breeds not so much. To Know Them is To Love Them can be used as an introduction to common and not-so-common breeds or as a fun way to find out how much you already know about man's best friends.
