Dog Breeds List I

Dog Breeds List I includes all those breeds beginning with the letter I.  You might notice that many of the breeds have been listed on more than one page. 

This is because they go by different names even within the English Language and are listed differently by many of the major kennel clubs.

Did I forget a breed that should be on this Dog Breeds List I? I will apologize in advance, especially if the breed I omitted is one you own. 

Please help out by contacting me and letting me know of my mistake.  That way I can add the breed to this list.
