Here are the breeds that always fall into the legal system.  Is it the dog or the breed? Click HERE.

These are some of the ways by which people choose the breed they wish to have. Do you see yourself in any of these options?

  • They find it locally either with a breeder or at a shelter/rescue.
  • They accept a dog from a neighbor, friend or family member because it is either free or low cost.
  • They choose the breed of dog they had as a child.
  • They choose the breed of a dog featured in a movie, YouTube video, or television show.
  • They meet a dog at a friend's home or community park and decide they like the breed and must own one.

All of these are legitimate ways for you make that all important decision; BUT one thing is missing from each: Research

Our A to Z dog breeds list.

Without knowing a breed inside and out before you obtain that special forever friend, you may find yourself perplexed by strange canine behaviors, unprepared to meet the dog's grooming needs or simply incompatible with his energy requirements!


This happens frequently when people decide to purchase a puppy. 

Puppies, no matter what breed, are high-energy, high-maintenance, and require a tremendous amount of time.

When the puppy's natural energy far exceeds yours, then that cute little pup becomes overwhelming.

Research helps you to determine if the dog breed of your dreams will ACTUALLY fit within your lifestyle.

Don't make the mistake of getting a dog because it is fluffy, cute, free, cheap, big, little, or has some other characteristic that you can't resist. 

Learn what's best for you, your family, and your life circumstance. 

There's more to choosing the perfect breed.  With so many to choose from, where do you start?
