Did I Miss a Breed on this Dog Breeds List H?

With so many dog breeds in this world, there is a good chance I may have omitted one. First of all, I will apologize for that omission, especially if your dog was the one I forgot. Secondly, won't you take the time to send me a quick note, letting me know what dog breed should be on this page? 

I sincerely appreciate your time and will get the breed information up as quickly as possible.
