Dog Breeds List J

Here is Dog Breeds List J, all of the world's dog breeds whose names begin with the letter J. 

Some are listed on other pages because they have been recognized by major kennel clubs by different names.

Spot a breed I forgot?  It happens.  Please be kind and take a moment to let me know about my omission.  I do apology, especially if the breed I neglected to add to this page happens to be your favorite breed or trusty companion.
