Dog Breeds List V - W

Here is our dog breeds list v-w that includes all the world's breeds we could find that begin with the letters v and w. 

You might be wondering why we list the same breed on more than one page. 

That's easy. 

Not everyone, even in the English Speaking world refer to dog breeds by the same name.  For example, take the  Italian Volpino. 

This breed is listed on our dog breeds list v-w because some countries refer to the breed as Volpino Italiano.  Others may simply call them Volpino.  

Did we miss a breed?  Chances are good that we did and you can help by giving us a "heads up."  Contact Dog Breeds Expert to let let us know about that special breed that we omitted. 

Oh, and by the way, we do apology if we missed your favorite breed.  We want our list to be the most comprehensive on the internet.  Contact Dog Breeds Expert.

Or, scroll to the bottom of this page and provide your suggestion for dog breeds list v-w.

And,

We thank you.
