Did We Forget Something on this Dog Breeds List F?

There are many dog breeds in the world and many of these wonderful dogs go by different names depending on where you are located in the world.  I try to provide alternate names where ever possible, but what is normally missing is the translation of breeds into many languages.

If you know of another breed that begins with the letter F and I have neglected to add it to this list, please help us out.  Use the contact form below to alert me to my omission and I will add it the next time the page is updated.  Thanks for helping out.
