Pugs

A Pug is a toy dog breed with a wrinkly face and a small body. They were bred to adorn the laps of the Chinese Emperors during the Shang Dynasty (1766-1122 BC), in Eastern China, where they were known as “Lo-Chiang-Se” or “Foo”. The Pug’s popularity spread to Tibet, where they were mainly kept by monks, and then their popularity went onto Japan, and finally to Europe. The breed was first imported in the late 16th and 17th centuries by merchants from the Dutch East Indies Trading Company and became the dog of the Dutch Royal family. Their fine, glossy coats can be apricot, fawn, silver or black. The word “pug” may have come from the old English word: Pugg, which was an affectionate term for a playful little devil or monkey, or Puck, which is a mischievous spirit of Nature. The stern expression of the Pug belies its true sense of fun. Pugs are very sociable dogs and usually stubborn as well. However, they are playful, charming, clever and are known to succeed in dog obedience skills as well. In general, they are very attentive dogs, always at their owner’s feet, on their lap, or following them from room to room.

Grover, the Chocolate Lab

The Labrador Retriever (also Labrador or Lab for short), is widely considered as the most popular dog breed in the world, and since 1991, the most popular breed by registration in the United States, the U.K , and several other countries. It is also the most popular breed of assistance dog in the United States, Australia, and many other countries. Due to their detection, intelligence and working abilities, they are widely used by the police as well. The Labrador Retriever was originally called the St. John’s Dog (from which it emerged), or the Lesser Newfoundland. Other origins of the name include the Spanish or Portuguese word for rural/agricultural workers; Portuguese “lavradores” or Spanish “labradores”. Until the 20th century black was the preferred color. Brown and yellow labs were only accepted by the 1930’s and in the late 18th century, both yellow and brown pups were culled because the color was unacceptable. A silver color is sometimes found in the United States. It is a disqualification in shows, although Silver Labradors are registered by the AKC as “chocolate”. Labradors are good-tempered, very agile, adaptable and devoted companions. They are intelligent, keen and biddable, with a strong will to please. Kindly of nature, they show no trace of aggression or undue shyness.

Kes, the Yorkie

The Yorkie was bred as a ratter, used to kill mice and rats in small places and they originated in Yorkshire, which is a rugged region in northern England. Yorkshire Terriers were given their breed name in 1874, and were first introduced in the United States in 1872. They have now become the second most popular dog breed in the United States, trailing only the Labrador Retriever, according to the ACK statistics of 2006. The Yorkie has a free, jaunty gait, with both head and tail held high. Toy stature does not necessarily mean frail or fragile. The breed standard dictates that a Yorkshire Terrier must weigh no more than seven pounds while being 8 and 9 inches tall. There is no distinction made in the standard between Yorkies of various sizes. There is no “teacup” or “standard” within the breed standard. They are intelligent, independent and courageous little dogs that make lovely pets and family members.

Bonnie and Hanson: Boxers

Developed in Germany, the Boxer is a breed of stocky, medium-sized, short-haired dog. The coat is smooth and fawn or brindled, with or without white markings. They have very strong jaws and a powerful bite. The Boxer was bred from the Bulldog and the now extinct breed called: Bullenbeisser. Based on 2006 American Kennel Club statistics, Boxers are the seventh most popular breed of dog in the United States—a position they have held since 2002. Boxers are renowned from olden times for their great love and faithfulness to their masters and household. Boxers are harmless in the family, but distrustful of strangers. They are bright and friendly of temperament at play, but brave and determined when aroused. Boxers’ intelligence and willing tractability, modesty and cleanliness make them a highly desirable family dog and cheerful companion. A boxer is the soul of honesty and loyalty, and is never false in old age. There are many theories pertaining to the origin of the breed’s name. It is supposedly derived from the breed’s tendency to begin a fight by standing on its hind legs and “boxing” with its front paws. It could also have gotten its name from the very first known specimens of the breed which was called Lechner’s Box.

Winston and Bailey

The Bulldog, also known as the English Bulldog or British Bulldog is a medium-sized breed that originated from England. The bulldog is stocky and has a compact body with short, sturdy limbs. Its shape results in a peculiarly unique gait. Bulldogs are known for their short muzzles and the saggy skin on their faces, creating the apparent “frown” that has become a trademark of the breed. Bulldogs come in a variety of colors and have a smooth, short coat. They are generally docile, friendly and gregarious but are known to be fiercely loyal as well. Breeders have succeeded in breeding the aggression out of bulldogs, and thus the dog is known to have a good temperament. They can be so attached to home and family that they will not venture out of the yard without a human companion. Due to their friendly nature, bulldogs are known for getting along well with children, and any house-broken pet in general. Because of its tenacity, the bulldog is a symbol of England and is a popular mascot of American universities as well.
