Breeds

The classification of kinologists on breeds and groups of breeds is unsystematic, since elements of dogs are in look and function instead of relatedness mainly. Breeds are usually genetically not the same as one another, and even with this side, the domestic dog is one of the most varied forms of domestic creatures. According to one genetic analysis, the breeds type four main classes or “types”: they are “Canines of the old world” (eg malamute and sharpey), “mastiff” type (eg English mastiff), “sheep” type (for instance, border sheep) and “all others” (also “modern” or “hunting” type) , a newer analysis involving even more breeds revealed the fifth even, “mountain type” (section of mastiffs and spaniels). For a number of breeds, such as the Pharaonic dog, there is a belief among breeders and lovers they are ancient, but genetic features reveal that the previous depictions only remind the looks that has been achieved relatively recently by crossing various breeds.
